This. Someone who has never heard this album could peg the time frame of its release. The production was so desperately trying to fit in with what was popular at the time. The electric is so jarring and so non-dmb. I give it a 4, and thatís probably generous. Thereís only a handful of tracks worth listening to, but Iíll guess most people rank it higher based on how some of the songs evolved live. I will never forget the disbelief and confusion I felt the first time I heard I did it.

Oddly enough, the main riff on I Did It is very much Dave’s style. Imagine it on an acoustic and it fits. I think there are a couple acoustic versions actually..

As much as I've tried to like When The World Ends, I just hate the song. I think the ending is really dumb. There's a nice groove going on, but it's an incomplete idea to me.

Also I'm reminded of the Warehouse CD ROM that came out around this time. What a waste

This is basically why I'm happier with ED than most people. It's still really Dave-Matthews-y at its core; almost every song has a riff that's unique in his signature ways; the songs are still built on weird timings and rhythms and key modulations. (Especially Sleep To Dream Her.) Stand Up is emphatically not. Every musical idea on that album is boring.

Compare the riff of I Did It to the riff of Everybody Wake Up, for instance.

Where BTCS got a 98% rating, I fully expect Stand Up to get a 2% rating

Well, since zero isn't an option, it'll be at least 10%. But yeah.

I gave it a 6. I've always liked it a lot more than most die hard fans. The Space Between, Fool to Think, the title song, Sleep to Dream Her and So Right have always been favourites. When the Worlds Ends and If I Had it All also aren't bad. Though the only live Iihia worthwhile is that one from 2007. Dave and Tim do a great Wtwe.

I Did It and WYA are harmless fluff. The latter is obnoxiously played intensely live though.

The rest are shite, especially Dreams of our Fathers. Roi on Angel is passably smooth, but that's the extent of any noteworthiness there. Mother Father is downright embarrassing with its seriousness.

0 will definitely be an option for Stand Up and only Stand Up. I think I might make it a scale of 0-4.

As an album, probably like a 3/3.5. As a fan who started going to shows in 94 and after the stuff we heard on the 2000 tour...in the negatives.

It's a 4

Everyday is a decent to good pop/rock album. No standouts or quality tracks, but a few decent ones that fly under the radar like Space Between, If I Had It All, DOOF, and Sleep to Dream Her.

I gave it a 5. Its an album thats grown on me more over time, but it definitely "sounds" dated. Ive enjoy/dont mind most of the songs, but its not classic DMB.

My favorite tracks at FTT, STDH and Everyday.

We're hovering just under 50% right now. I expected more, but I forget what a terrible impression Everyday left on the pre-I Did It diehards here in 2001.

Everyday is a weird one for me. I hated the album when it came out, LWS made the situation worse, the 2001 summer tour and my 3 Giants shows made it EVEN worse.

But 17 years removed.... A whole lot of the songs have evolved well and become some of the more fun ones. The album itself sounds like early 2000's gloss pop garbage though and I don't think I've listened to it in a decade.

So Right, Fool to Think, Everyday, Sleep to Dream Her, If I Had It All and Space Between are all songs I enjoy hearing live. Hell even I Did It is a solid song overall to me in the same stupid way that Hunger is.

Mother Father and Angel both suck. DOOF would probably be decent live but we will never know. WTWE annoyed the hell out of me for years and now I kinda just don't care about it.

I think its a solid 4 for me. Would actually be a decent jump higher if we were counting the songs in a Live setting.

In my mind, it's impossible to remove this album from the context of it being the death knell of a band I loved. Sure some of the songs aren't garbage and I've come to understand that even the "hardcore" fans here love an album that actually features a song written by the producer of DMB's arguably worst album but this moment in DMB history was the end of excellence. Anything beyond this was damage control or passing glimpses of greatness.

Pretty hard to argue with that. Especially since I feel no need to.
