Before These Crowded Streets - Dave Matthews Band...

Many of you who know me well might be wondering where the Dave Matthews Band albums have been on my countdown; I figured I would include other favorites of mine, with this being the pinnacle. As my favorite band, it's only fitting that this, "Before These Crowded Streets ," gets the title of my favorite album.

Ask any die-hard DMB fan and they're sure to tell you; they just don't make albums like this anymore. From the first the first beat of "Pantala Naga Pampa," to the last note of "Spoon," the album is perfection, a complete album, if you will. At the time, it was a completely different sound for DMB, much darker with a different vibe then their previous albums. Every single song segues into the next.

If you want to get really creative and listen to the entire CD backwards, it'll flow just the same and just as nicely. DMB also had quite a few guests stop by and play with them such as Tim Reynolds, Bela Fleck, Greg Howard, and even Alanis Morrisette. This is the sole album that has made me the DMB fanatic that I am today.

Songs such as "Halloween," "The Last Stop," "Dreaming Tree," and "Spoon" are considered gems when played live. Other songs such as "Pig," "Rapunzel," "The Stone," and "Crush" are some of DMB's best live works. This album transcends beautifully in the studio and in concert, not too many other bands can pull off an album like this.

When the popular question states, "If you had to take just one CD on a desert island with you what would it be," my answer has always been, Dave Matthews Band's, "Before These Crowded Streets"
