  • Dave Matthews gets busted on the introspective stuff

    Aug 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: All the classic DMB elements. Possibly their greatest CD yet.
    Cons: Those looking for another "Ants Marching" or "So Much To Say" may be disappointed.

    Summary: As unbelievable as this may sound, I've never been to a Dave Matthews Band concert. I know almost nothing about the live albums they have put out (except for Could I have been your little sister). Busted Stuff was all new to me. What a ... read more

  • Busted Stuff: Lillywhite's plastic evil twin

    Jan 11, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good songs, despite their mistreatment.
    Cons: Over-produced snow job that insults the original.

    Summary: For the record, I want to start by stating that I am not a die-hard Dave Matthews Band fanatic, and so my comments do not come from that place. I do not unconditionally love everything that Matthews and company do, but I have much respect and admiration ... read more

  • Busted Stuff - DMBs Latest and Greatest Studio Hit

    Aug 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great CD. Great Songs.
    Cons: Lillywhite Sessions ruined the surprise a little bit...

    Summary: Another great Dave Matthews Band CD, Busted Stuff truly emphasizes DMB's musical talent. A mixture of various musical sounds (and a little bit of their own), Dave and Co. have turned back to their conventional sounds after exploring a little bit ... read more

  • Makes You Wanna Stay

    Jan 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A refreshing CD full of actual music!, Dave is just about at his best
    Cons: Songs not exactly uplifting, not a great CD for a beginning Dave fan

    Summary: Maybe I biased, well I am actually. I love Dave Matthews; I've followed his music since a friend of mine first gave me Live at Red Rocks to listen to and quite frankly I don't think there is a single artist out there who can touch him. Busted stuff ... read more

  • Dave Redeems Himself- Mostly

    Sep 29, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: interesting topics, some excellent songs
    Cons: gets boring at times

    Summary: When I reviewed the DMB album "Crash", I was a little bit mean to Dave Matthews. A friend of mine read that review and has recently insisted that I give the man and the band a second chance. So here I am, reviewing the recent "Busted Stuff". ... read more

  • DMB's Best Stuff is Busted

    Sep 26, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Return to Roots, Dave at his most bare and true
    Cons: Depressing and not all people are into that

    Summary: NOTE: 3 years of passed and I returned to update my DMB reviews. As time has passed, this albums has stuck with me the most. Busted Stuff is the one album that I continually love and listen to. I will update the ratings, but keep past scores just to see ... read more

  • Yo Bartender! Give More of This "Busted Stuff"

    Sep 21, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A Gorgeous Album from the Dave Matthews Band.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: For nearly ten years, the Dave Matthews band had established themselves as one of the most premiere live rock bands with their vibrant jam-style music that has seduced millions of jam-rock lovers. While they are known for their live shows, the ... read more

  • Sadness and Depression make better music

    Sep 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It's the SONGS, man. Raven, Grey Street, Bartender, You Never Know.
    Cons: Lyrical version of Kit Kat jam is better. Left out Monkey Man.

    Summary: This is what Everyday should have been. Dave has been playing most of these songs on the road for years now and DMB fans have heard them live as well as on the bootlegs of the Lillywhite songs, but hearing them refined and clear on a studio CD is always ... read more

  • Searching For Answers Under the Stars

    Sep 1, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Dave's introspective lyrics encourage and challenge; the band is amazing, as always.
    Cons: Seems ever-so-slightly rushed.

    Summary: They say that, when something truly great comes along, it blows all of it's competition out of the water. If that's the case, then most of the music that has been released so far this decade is officially "beached," thanks to Busted Stuff, the latest ... read more

  • Another Good Album

    Aug 12, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Its still DMB style
    Cons: Missing some songs that were expected and some were changed from the original

    Summary: It's too bad that the politics of recording this and the Lillywhite album got in the way. Between the two, this could have been one incredible album. I have to applaud DMB though for rerecording the songs; that just shows you how hardcore these guys are. ... read more

  • You Never Know What They'll Think Of Next

    Aug 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A revival of Lillywhite and brings back to life old Dave Matthews Band
    Cons: Still contains some of the pop from everyday

    Summary: A highly anticipated new CD by the Dave Matthews Band, Busted Stuff, was the next studio release after the disappointment of Everyday to fans. People felt that the CD Everyday was not the Dave Matthews Band, but an album by ... read more

  • Busted Stuff... Dave Matthews' Broken Record

    Aug 10, 2002 by divad23 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Music
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The DMB we know and love is back, acoustic guitars, solos and all...
    Cons: Depressing, lethargic, obsessed with death. These songs shouldn't all be on the same album.

    Summary: I’ve determined that I’m not worthy to be called a true Dave Matthews fan. His band’s new album, Busted Stuff, sounds much like a broken record to me. I guess the fact that I liked a lot of the non-acoustic ... read more

  • Not new, but definitely improved

    Aug 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's Dave, every song is enjoyable
    Cons: none

    Summary: Last summer Dave released "Everyday"...and I was disappointed with its poppy sound that lacked the heart and soul Dave usually thrust into every song. I heard a rumor about an unreleased album scrapped by Dave entitled by fans "The Lilywhite Sessions", ... read more

    Aug 5, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: every single song, no joke
    Cons: none

    Summary: I've never been a huge Dave Matthews Band fan. I loved the first album, liked the second, hated the third, went to see em live for a good time back in 99, and then came Everyday. No song has captured my spirit the way The Space ... read more

  • A step up

    Aug 4, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very clean sound, a large step above their last album.
    Cons: Drags a bit

    Summary: This cd is definitely worth buying. The band demonstrates again their talent as musicians. There are several great songs, like Bartender and Grace is Gone, and several that are ho-hum at best, like Gray Street and Where Are You Going. Dave doesnt seem to ... read more

    Pros: A great cd reminds us all that why we loved them to start with
    Cons: a little different if compared to his best songs

    Summary: Faith will be regained to nearly %100 after it may have hit rock bottom with there album release Everyday.Unfortunately for them there album "Everyday" was not all that pleasing....but i belive they got the message and came back , even with all the new ... read more

  • DMB Who?

    Aug 1, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's DMB - c'mon!!!!! They are awesome
    Cons: A few slow songs, but that is DMB's style

    Summary: I know every other review goes through the songs song by song, but I am going to do it also, because I love every one of them... Busted Stuff-This song opens the album with a nice tone. It's a more laid back sound than the opener of Everyday ... read more

  • BUSTED STUFF FIXED! Story at 11.

    Jul 27, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great songs, fantastic musicianship, and THE RETURN OF THE BAND (woohoo!)
    Cons: People are likely to get peeved over lyric changes and the absence of certain songs

    Summary: By now, chances are you've heard the story of "The Lillywhite Sessions" so many times that you'll likely vomit if you hear it again. Well, being someone who doesn't really care all that much about the well-being of your gag reflex, here's the Nutshell ... read more

  • Busted Stuff is just that!

    Jul 23, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Moody, Dark, and highly accessible
    Cons: Not as good as the Lillywhite Sessions "A Summer So Far", too produced

    Summary: First let me say that I think the Dave Matthews Band (DMB) is easily among the best artists of their day. I believe that Busted Stuff is good, probably better than 99% of the new discs that have been and will be released this year, but the often ... read more

  • The Dave Matthews Lost Classics - Unearthed!

    Jul 19, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some Fantastic, Deep Tunes
    Cons: No Sweet Up And Down? Grrrrrr...

    Summary: My faith was slightly shaken in the Dave Matthews Band when they released Everyday some time ago; it sounded as if the band was trying to branch off into pop territory. With short, verse-chorus-verse arrangements that were radio-friendly and ... read more
