I've given it a few listens through...there are some good songs on there: "Dream Girl", "American Baby", "Hello Again", "Louisiana Bayou", but the rest feels a lot like filler.
All in all, it's much better than "Everyday" or "Busted Stuff," in my opinion. I think all DMB fans just need to come to terms with the fact that they're never going to make an album as good as "Before These Crowded Streets" (which may be one of the greatest albums of all time, for any band) again.
I think this album will play much better live than it does in album form. I'm definately looking forward to the Riverbend show, especially since O.A.R. is opening for them!
