Before These Crowded Streets

Before These Crowded Streets by Dave Matthews Band
Released: Apr 1998
Dave Matthews Band's least accessible record is 2002's Busted Stuff, but Before These Crowded Streets comes in a close second. On the group's initial releases for RCA, Matthews made sure to write radio-friendly pop. Crowded Streets, in contrast, spotlights his group's love for jammy improv, world rhythms and jazz fusion. He even employs the Kronos Quartet on a few tracks. And though it may not have grabbed the mass audiences like Under the Table and Dreaming and Crash, the record, in many ways, is more rewarding.
