The long awaited, much antiscipated album from Dave Matthews Band has arrived. I’m alittle late on the band wagon, but I’d rather be late then never.
On this album you’ll find the familiar sounds that make Dave Matthews so wonderful, with some new twist. The lyrics by far let you into the inspirational minds of the band. The melodies bring you back home, where you know it’s nice and comfortable, to the Dave Matthews you know and love.
I have to recommend this album to everyone relaxing on a porch swing, sitting at a picnic table in the twilight of the night, or simply daydreaming. The first two tracks are amazing. I’d have to say “Shake me like a monkey” is my new favorite.
A few favorite quotes from the CD:
“Shake Me Like A Monkey”-
1. God or the devil alone could not have made you up, the two must have worked as one together.
“Funny The Way It Is”-
The whole song is awesome.
“Lying In The Hands Of God”-
1. Save your sermons for someone that’s afraid to love, I’ll be right here lying in the hands of God.
“Why I Am”-
1. I grew drunk on water turned into wine, ‘til I was slave and master at the same damn time
1. Tell me everything will be ok, If I just stay on my knees and keep praying, believing in something, tell me everything is all taken care of, by those qualified to take care of it all.
1. Not all bad, but I’m a faithful sinner, I might get lost, but I’ll be home for dinner.
2. Bad days come when the good days gone.
1. Forget what you believe, and naked you will see, that we are all the same.
2. Why be afraid of what, we do not understand.
3. Cut out the differences, to feel like we belong
4. Out there, no food, no drink, how many days do you think you’d last with all your diamonds and your pearls.
5. Don’t be dead before you die.
6. Above all things, if kindness is your king, then heaven will be yours, before you meet your end.
1. Mama told me, boy someday that girl will take your mind and then you’ll know.
1. If Martians fell from the sky, what would that do to God.
