There’s plenty of bands that old that still write good tunes and don’t get overtly political. Latest Springsteen album is fantastic, The dead in the late 80s had some good tunes, Phish still writes some great stuff, just a couple of examples. So yes I expect more than nursery rhymes for Dave’s children about how they’re going to change the world. Please enough rhetoric. There was so much political crap the last year and a half that I really don’t want to hear more of it especially not from music which for many is a nice escape and entertainment.

To be honest, there aren't many bands that are creating better or equal music 30 years after their inception. You mention Bruce, I love some Bruce, but his new stuff isn't really much better than say Born to Run. He is also VERY political.

The Dead, well, they did have some great tunes in the 1980's, 20 years after their inception and Phish, well I don't know much about them so I'll give you that.

But overall you just named 3 very loose examples out of 1,000's of bands, so back to the point, what is everybody really expecting out of the next album? BTCS will never happen again. Maybe Big Whiskey though.

I mean, I know it's a meme, but the period of 87-91 for the Dead...

He's also Beck's dad and has worked with a real who's who of music legends.

I'm not a musician, and I can't speak to the details of what it must take to continue creating new music over the course of decades. I would think, in terms of human nature, the creativity can ebb and flow and result in stellar work, mediocre work, and no work at all at times.
That being said...This is still a phenomenally talented group of musicians...several would likely be regarded as virtuoso's at their respective instruments. It is my personal opinion that if this band wanted to sit down together, even in its current form, and write 10-13 wildly fantastic tunes with intricate musicianship, they totally could regardless of how many years they have been at it.

Anyone agree there?

Someone needs the balls to tell Dave to “try again” lyrically. That would go a long way.

So Rashawn (and possibly other band members) are in the studio today. He’s posted a couple pics on IG where you can see Carter’s kit and drum sticks.

Edit: Buddy is with him

Lol, true. Someone should have told him this 20 years ago. Seems more and more likely over time that his lyrical creativity and unique phraseology was a result of freestyled youthfulness, drug use, and maybe even some "help" from others. A self-critical voice that, while yielding results early in his career, became too paralyzing to heed.

I also think being nearly exposed for some of those '06 IOY lyrics closed up his freestyle, and solidified his transition into dad rock.

Other bands like the Dead, Phish etc have hired lyricsts though, correct? I know Dave has worked with Ross Hoffman, John Algaia, Ballard, etc but most of his music is Matthews originals. I still think Dave can write great tunes by himself. But I wouldn't be against him utilizing a lyricist. Just not a yes man like Rob Evans, Ballard, Batson etc.

I know it's completely out of context...so this is likely WAY off...but that sound has almost a "BTCS commercials" feel to it in the standalone clip. It would be cool if they brought that type of thing back for another album, IMO (Realistically, I would guess that there is more like a 95% chance we are just hearing an isolated string section being added to an existing song, though.

100% agree....that's one of the few DMB tracks that I think of as studio perfection.
