Not a bad album. It is a more instrumental album more like BTCS but I would not suggest this album to a new fan. I love Dave but I would say this is his worst album. And btw Big Whiskey and the GG King is an amazing album and it was a nominee for Album of the Year so I don't understand the other comments. Overall, if you want this album listen to Mercy, Broken Things, If Only and Belly Belly Nice.

I love Dave's acoustic stylings for this album. This isn't exactly DMB setting the stage on fire, as they did long ago. This album is for people who appreciate Dave's artistry, and of course the beautiful sound of his talented band backing him up.
Dave the great!!!
Love love love this album it's everything kinda mixed together some old Dave some new and just wonderful!!!
Uninspired and dull
I've enjoyed every studio album DMB has released until this one. There is just no energy and it really does feel like they are going through the motions like other reviewers stated. It's like an album full of the most "meh" songs of their other albums. I am truly hoping they get it together next time around because I am a huge fan of the band!
So Much To Say is now So Sad To Say
I still love DMB, but this is the first album that I've chosen not to purchase...I think it will work well in an elevator. I got a couple free songs through Warehouse - "Gaucho" & "If Only", they're OK. Gaucho was awesome live, but DMB is awesome live, so no surprise there. I think this is the result of children, since there's definitely a parallel here to going to bed at 8pm...boring.
The boys still have it! The live tracks are my favorite on the deluxe version. Especially since I was at the Sweet debut!! Live Dave>Studio Dave both are great but live is my favorite! :)
IS A MUST HAVE FOR ANY COLLECTION!!!!

Best album EVER!! I put it on and listen from start to finish, every time. DBM is my favorite band, this is my favorite album.
Just not the same anymore...
but still my favorite band of all time. Leroi's passing seems to have been a crucial turning point for the band. No disrespect to Jeff, but since Leroi has been gone, the band has been largely a disappointment.
Popularity ratings are wacked. Definitely the best five songs on this album are as follows:
1. The Riff
2. Drunken Soldier
3. Broken Things
5. Belly Belly Nice
