Produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance), Big Whiskey has been hailed by Rolling Stone as the group's "heaviest album yet, both musically and emotionally," which went on to note: "Throughout, Carter Beauford beats out elaborate, propulsive grooves, bassist Stefan Lessard lays down Flea-style funk bass lines; violinist Boyd Tinsley plays creating, intense runs; and Matthews mirrors Moore's saxophone lines with scatlike singing." Billboard, in a cover story on Dave Matthews Band, praised Big Whiskey as "its best album yet...Highlights include the funk-rock rave-up 'Shake Me Like A Monkey,' 'Alligator Pie,' radio-friendly fare like 'Why I Am,' which features playful horns over a solid rock riff and a hooky chorus, and 'Funny The Way It Is,' which parlays a subtle intro into a soaring, syncopated anthem."

Great music / good sound / cheap vinyl

I really was hoping that this would be better than some of the reviews I had read, but it was not to be. I love the music and when the vinyl pressing doesn't get in the way it sounds great on vinyl, but you can tell it wasn't pressed well and has a ton of artifacts throughout all 4 sides. Side 4 for me was so bad I couldn't stand to listen to it, currently waiting for a replacement and crossing my fingers it is better. At this point I wouldn't be able to recommend this version.

The Music is Very Good!

My favorite Dave Matthews music in years. I find the sound really bad....highly compressed, no soundstage, thin and bright. I'm certain Dave and band aren't all standing right in front of the drum kit together, as the imaging portrays.

Matthews Rocks!
