Dave Matthews Band's "Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King"

Dave Matthew's new album was released last week. My feelings about this album during those anticipatory months (years!) have been very much akin to the feeling I had while watching The Blair Witch Project after it was totally clear it was all a fake. I have very fond memories of DMB--living on the beach, he was a total staple. I loved his crazy awesome voice and insightful lyrics.

And then, I grew up. Mass disillusionment gave way to utter disappointment. I find this album totally over produced, over the top and, honestly, *sigh* the biggest let down yet.

(Geez, Lauren, tell us how you really feel.) Check it out yourselves! I welcome differing opinions.

I can't help but feel like DMB jumped the shark after Everyday. I miss them.
