    The new Dave Matthews Band album is really good

    So if you didn't like Stand Up, or if you haven't paid much attention to DMB recently, it's definitely time to check this out when it comes out. I've personally listened to most of the album and it is excellent. I'd say it's probably their best album to date. Dave's lyrics are awesome, and the riffs are amazing. I totally think that it embraces the idea of them as a "jam band," which is one of the things they're best known for.

    Of course, it's one big tribute also to LeRoi Moore, who passed away last year. And his presence is still definitely felt. You can check out the following videos and see his presence and his influence during the initial recording process:

    It's leaked online but also available in streaming form at Pandora:

    I really like the inclusion of the trumpet along with the sax and violin action. My favorite track so far is "Shake Me Like A Monkey," the first one.

    It'll be out next Tuesday, June 2nd.

    Sweet.... I preordered it with the free Live Trax album.

    I didn't know until recently that LeRoi's nickname was Grux, hence the title. After learning that, hearning the opening notes of the CD is a nice tribute. I was at the show the day after he passed - best Dave show I've seen in years.

    I should've preordered, but didn't have the money.

    I think Dave said in EW, "If you don't like it, you should ask someone to punch you in the face."

    It's the most fun I've had listening to a CD in I don't know how long.

    I hope this album is good as I haven't really cared much dave matthews or his band since "Before these crowded streets," which was their last good stuff before they changed up their music.

    Before These Crowded Streets is an amazing record. Everyday was pretty inconsistent. I liked Busted Stuff slightly better, but it's still not great. They lost me with the American Baby single. But if they're back to form at all, I'd definitely be interested.

    And I didn't know Leroi Moore had died, that's a real shame.

    Yeah, it was kinda weird (but in a good way) to see him in those behind-the-scenes videos.

    Alright kids, it's out today. Two flavors: a standard edition CD, priced at most retail outlets for $10, and a CD/DVD with a making-of documentary for $15-16.

    The entire album is up for preview at http://pandora.com/davematthewsband

    They did a live, commercial-free concert last night on Fuse; they played a bunch of their new stuff with old stuff mixed in, and it was quite excellent. You can watch it online at http://fuse.tv/tours/dmb/
