    Mr. Matthews has decided he’s not going to be the grumpy old man he sings about in Come Tomorrow, but he doesn’t sugarcoat things either; each song notes the fears and sorrows it’s determined to overcome. The music does that, with consolation in its melodies and a life force in its rhythms.

    Without Tinsley nor the late LeRoi Moore, Dave Matthews Band doesn't seem as loopy or rangy as it did in its prime, yet this leaner sound suits a middle-aged Matthews who is comfortable in his skin yet restless in his mind.

    Mostly, though, he explores the mature, singer-songwriter side he's developed during recent work like 2012's Away From the World, getting quiet, contemplative, and unusually sweet on songs both lush ("Here On Out") and comparatively spare ("Black and Blue Bird").

    Dave Matthews Band sounds best when it’s weird; the bummer on these songs is how bored the band sounds. But even as a cadre of producers smoothes out the band’s crunchiest tendencies, glimpses of the DMB’s ambitious musicianship shine through. These outliers aren’t always successful.

The album tells a story from birth to adulthood. The subtlety of “Here On Out” to the driving sound of “She” and the festival feel of “Can’t Stop” brings together decades of excellence. The new album speaks to the base of Dave Matthews Band and welcomes a new generation of potential fans. In a cynical world this album brings hope and love. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I think this Album is the Sum of all DMB great music style in one package not sure if its the best Album they have produced but its close. The Story this Album have is beautiful and joyful indeed, from Birth to Adulthood were you hit with uncertainty and to growing and having family. Its a very bright and Cheerful album probably the best one i have listened yet. DMB indeed has a music style of their own and this Album is no exception. Expand

    At first I was extremely scared for Dave Matthews, he released some dongs early that i didn’t understand. Instead after it was released andAt first I was extremely scared for Dave Matthews, he released some dongs early that i didn’t understand. Instead after it was released and the album is judged from track to track like they all should be it is his best work since Big Whiskey. In my humble opinion Dave’s back. Gone are the days of tripping billies because as he said, he is now sober, but the music and the riff of “do you remember” prove Dave’s best years are not behind him. Instead we could be see a Bruce like come back. But the odds are against it. Still this albums’ success should put Dave Matthews in the rock and roll hall of fame. It debuted at number one with no marketing, unlike Mr. West, who holds specials. Dave was the king of Rock for over 15 years he deserves recognition. Expand

    This is a better effort than their previous album from 6 years ago. It does not climb as high as Big Whiskey from 2009, and in my opinion noneThis is a better effort than their previous album from 6 years ago. It does not climb as high as Big Whiskey from 2009, and in my opinion none of these albums are as complete as the 90s albums. So I guess if I were to rank this album, it's their 5th best album out of 8...which when you put a number to it, doesn't make it seem good, but it does have some really nice highlights I think anyone who appreciates music will like: other than the singles, I'd say check out "black and blue bird," "the idea of you," and " do you remember." I've always thought the idea of you had potential to be a hit, we'll see if it gets released after these initial singles. Expand

    Good album from a band that is past their prime. Oh, how I long for the days of Before These Crowded Streets and Crash. This newest effortGood album from a band that is past their prime. Oh, how I long for the days of Before These Crowded Streets and Crash. This newest effort does seem more inspired than the last two efforts but i don't see DMB climbing back to the level of their early years' energy and fervor. Expand
