Overview

On their major-label debut, Under the Table and Dreaming, the Dave Matthews Band is helped by the lean production of Steve Lillywhite, who manages to rein in the group's tendency to meander. The result is a set of eclectic pop
ock that is accentuated by bursts of instrumental virtuosity instead of being ruled by it. That also means that the Dave Matthews Band is capable of turning out pop songs, and as the hit single "What Would You Say" and "Ants Marching" illustrate, they have a flair for catchy hooks.

I've listened to DMB for a long time and love their music.This album is one of their best! Along with the album ''Crash''!

The Dave Matthews Band CD, Under the Table and Dreaming, is the best CD in my collection. When I first heard it on the radio back in 1994, I knew I had to own it. Under the Table and Dreaming was the first CD of Dave Matthews that I bought, and it made me fall in love with them. Although it may be a little old, I still listen to it more than any of the newer songs they have made. The songs make me feel good and have a lot of meaning behind them. If you are at all interested in Dave, you have to listen to this CD.

The group is an absolutely fantastic band, and few people would dispute this fact. I believe this album was the pinnacle for the group. Crash was also a great album, but perhaps didn't glue together as well as UTTAD. The album is the perfect blend of deep lyrics, instrument solos, poly-rythmic drums and great bass-lines. Instead of wandering around like in some live albums, all songs have a purpose or destination. Later albums have been more mellow, and seemed to just try to reproduce earlier works like Crash and UTTAD rather than moving forward. Trying to produce more 'tripping billies' and 'ants marching' when really Dave himself was going into a deeper and deeper depression. Everyday was a break from this after that producer who was with Alanis Morrisette was brought in to generate some commercially viable pop songs. It's still a good album, because Dave is that good, but cannot cast a shadow next to UTTAD. The album can just be listened to over and over again, I have never grown tired of it- as the musical depth is there, and you can find different things working in each of the songs each time. My favourite tracks on it are hard to distinguish between, but probably the opener-'Best of What's Around', 'Dancing Nancies' with what I call the duelling solos floating around between lyrics, 'Ants Marching', and with 'Warehouse' perhaps as my favourite track of all. Desert Island scenario, with only 1 cd you can take, this would have to be it.

Having bought all the DMB CDs, I still think that this is their best one.

I have listened to almost all of dave's music, but this cd always finds its way back in the player and i never get tired of it either. All the songs are great, making this a cd that will not just fade out.

This musical collection by the Dave Matthews Band includes many of his most loved songs. Among these are ''Ants Marching'', ''Satellite'', and ''Dancing Nancies'', (not to mention ''Typical Situation''). This CD is a great investment for anyone, whether a gift or an addition to a personal collection.''Under the Table and Dreaming'' is simply not a ''Typical Situation''. Music from this selection can set the mood for the audience who prefers easy listening, or that of the audience who follows closely in the footsteps of Dave Matthews himself. This collection is a classic, not simply a trendy album that will fade out in the next couple of years.
