Yeah, I am sure that is part of it, but I still don't think either of them are good albums. One compared to the other, eh...maybe.

Everyday is not good compared with earlier DMB albums, but I do find it more entertaining than most stuff out there. I was a huge DMB fan from 95-98. I stopped listening when I couldn't get into BTCS. I started listening again shortly after Everyday was released and totally fell in love with them again. Its nothing compared to the earlier stuff and BS, but the songs are generally fun to hear.

I can't even listen to Stand Up. I don't mind some of the songs live (LB, ABI are fine, Hello Again is fantastic), but I don't think I've put the CD in since 2 weeks after buying it.

I thought it was awful until '02. Was confused as all hell when they brought it out that year until I heard how much better it sounded without the ladies and Carter, 'Roi, and Dave really tearing into the breakdown.

Stand Up is painful to listen to at this point. With how much the songs have changed (improved) in the live setting and how glaringly poor the production is, it is really hard to listen to.

Everyday, on the other hand, the songs are mostly in the exact same form live, therefore you are more likely to listen to the studio album.

I think all of these things people are saying factor into these poll results.

So Right and When the World Ends were easily mine. Probably still are, to be honest, though Fool to Think and Everyday joined them in '02.

anyone else still hoping to see dreams of our fathers pop up live one of these days?

i honestly really thought at some point by now it would have, specifically during the dave and friends tour after sweet up and down. it seemed the biggest problem was singing and playing at the same time, and with tim and trey it could have worked.

I think it'd be interesting to see, but I think the way it was put together in the studio is the reason I love it so much. I mean, it's pretty obvious that it would be a pretty tough song to replicate live because of the vocal arrangement which is still one the most unique he's ever laid down, but it'd be cool to see 'em try it a few times.

i mean you are right the studio version is really good, but, i never listen to the studio album (i barely listen to the ones i think are well done) so i haven't heard the song at all in like 2 years.

Haven't bothered to read the whole thread, but here's my view.

The album isn't that bad. But seeing as it comes from DMB, it's automatically going to be compared to their other albums. Which is why I can't say I like Everyday. If I'm going to listen to DMB, I'm going to listen to what I like from them, not what I don't. I could listen to another band's music that is somewhat decent, but why not listen to what you really like rather than what you tolerate. There is enough music that I like more than Everyday so that it's not in my repetoire.

No. Everyday at least is finished, it has direction, it has polish (even if it's turbo glossy). It shows effort and careful consideration. Stand Up seems cobbled together. I think many of the songs are weaker in structure and meaning. I'm not knocking Stand Up, because some of those songs I really like, but as an album, I think Everyday is a pretty good record. I don't think it's a B effort at all.

I think your problem with Everyday is that it's not what you expected from DMB. Which is fine. But my question asked you to put that aside and evaluate the album objectively. To me, it'll never be in the same pile as UTTAD or Crash, but I think it's still very, very good in a very different direction.

Stand Up even recieved an A from entertainment weekly and Rolling stone. at that point hell should freeze over.
These two magazines totally ripped BTCS to shreds. Not really credible. Most reviews of Everyday were exceedingly positive, which drove us all crazy because DMB never used to get good reviews, and to us that indicated a change.

You could also point out that allmusic only gave Stand Up 2 stars, the lowest for any DMB or DMB member's solo records yet. I felt their review was fairly spot on.

Either way, they're just somebody else's opinion. But you guys are trashing Everyday because it's not "DMB" to you, but that's not what we're discussing. I think Everyday is a good record if you look at it objectively.

See, I hated Space Between with a passion, but I loved the other two. And Fool To Think.

I'm shocked at how many people voted Everyday as "good". Like a few people have said already, I can tolerate two or three songs from this album, but as a whole, there is no way I could consider it "good".

What I wouldn't give to hear #36 again.

i honestly think for everyone (not literally everyone) who hated Everyday and now has come to like it will do the same with stand Up over time.

Stand Up, while still very different from "traditional DMB" but it s way more DMB then Everyday. Everyday is as DMB as Some Devil. its Dave with studio musicians. Stand Up still has a DMB vive to it, jut not one we are used or had been used to hearing, imo

But as has been said, we've seen how much better the Stand Up songs have become over time. That being said, it just shows the lack of effort and time that was put into them while they were in the studio. Thus, I don't think there will be as much of a coming around for SU as there has been for ED.

but it isnt as if the whole band spent quality time in the studio for Everyday. i dont see how that makes ED better then SU.
