This effort is worse than DMB's "Everday" album. Both "Standup" and "Everday" are more about the albums' producers (Ballard & Batson) than DMB. The only song that even marginally harkens back to DMB's glory days is track 4, which is a short instrumental diddy. As a true DMB fan, to say this album is a disappointment is a huge understatement.

Shoot me for saying but I love this album!! The tracks are unique and interestingly arranged in true DMB style. From the opening track you know this is going to be a sound like no other and thats what makes DMB great!! I can't stop listening to this cd and if you're a fan of DMB, then you know their real appeal comes when you see them live. I can say that this music will make for one HELL of a live show. As usual.

I have been a loyal DMB fan for years. Unfortunately, looking forward to a new CD I preordered Stand Up. This CD is packed with redundant lyrics. The songs are boring and the music is not up to DMB's standards. Batson has influenced this CD way too much and the originality and musicality of the band is squelched. This effort has no interesting jams and Carter's talents are wasted on run-of-the-mill beats that any drummer could do. Out of 14 tracks only 3 or 4 of them are not bad. Bring back the truly special music and lyrics of Dave Matthews and the band and get rid of Batson! Bring back Lillywhite. In summary, Don't bother buying this one.

I am a long-time DMB fan, and I will agree with everyone when it's said that their old studio albums are better than this one. But one thing that everyone should keep in mind, and probably one of the biggest reasons we are all fans of DMB, is because when they play their songs live, they are always changing and growing from their original studio versions. For example, look at the studio versions of Rhyme and Reason and Jimi Thing, both with electric guitar solos (obviously neither of which have them now). There's also Warehouse with Dave's rapidly-strummed intro rather than the Stop-Time Intro we are all so used to (and many other songs with intros and outros). Also Two Step, Dancing Nancies, Lie In Our Graves, #41, Jimi Thing, and so many others which now have extended jams live, but did not have them on the studio versions. My point is that, if you forget you've ever heard a live DMB song and just listen to the studio versions, you will begin to notice how different those versions are, how much they've changed, and how some songs even come off weird (like the cowbell in the original Warehouse!). Keep that in mind when listening to Stand Up, as these songs will surely change as well, and get their own intros, jams, Dave scats and all the DMB goodness we are accustomed to. Like I said, wait till they tour baby.

This may not be the best album DMB has put out, but it still pretty good. I was looking very much forward to receiving the CD and it was worth the wait.

I was so excited for the new DMB studio album. After listening to it I am horribly let down. In comparison to all of their other music it is wretched. I am sure it will be full of great pop radio hits yet for a true fan it is one disappointment after another. Especially bad is the title track "Stand Up" whose intro begins with great potential- then they start chanting the title and it goes downhill from there. This album is a waste of great talent.
