    I actually liked the Buddy and Tim back and forth. His synth sounds worked on this one.

    I just didnít think Daveís falsettos sounded good and were strained, but thatís kinda normal these days. No biggie

    Dave's vocals are fine, falsettos were supported, the song is just one feel and one thing and stays there the whole time, the synth thing for me is horrid

    I'm surprised you don't like this one. I think it will grow on you. Maybe go jerk off in your moms basement and give it another listen.

    The synth gave me a Phish/Snarky Puppy vibe for a second. I liked it a lot. Maybe you need to find a new band if you don't like this song and should only listen to pre 2004 Live Traxs.

    This will be a good album. People might not like the style, or what 2021 DMB is, but I think everything we've heard so far is at least a B.

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    Intro/verse is Aerosmith.. sounds like they were jamming on sweet emotion and fell into thisÖ the chorus sounds like a British 90s pop song chorus.. catchy though.. itís like the second part of She.. Dave must be trying to blend 70s prog rock with 90s pop rock to make its own thing.. pretty cool first listen.. think it will get stronger with more plays..

    Agreed.. itís different for sure but solid.. hope they just open the songs up a bit to jam.. they have so much potential which is exciting.

    Three or so listens so far (to substandard video/audio, I'm sure). Not feeling it at all. Does have a She vibe in intro. In a general sense, I also get a vibe of some parts of Seven and Blackjack in that the verses sound kind of purposefully non-melodic (if that makes any sense). Kind of a jarring generic rock sound.

    Man I love that hook. Pretty solid overall. Not my fav of the new ones but I dig.

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    The Tim/Buddy back and forth sequence sounds like Dream Theater/Progressive metal, which is something I never thought I'd think about a Dave Matthews song. That background riff is straight out of Tool's playbook

    It's fun. And it was the first time. We should see if they take it somewhere.

    Reminds me of the chorus of Canít Stop (which is my favorite part of that song). Love the tune & chorus is incredibly catchy. Like the attention to detail on the coordinated hits / horns. Cool intro to the chorus too.

    It sounds like another summer song of another band, and both will be forgotten around October.
    Nothing like DMB.

    And Buddy destroys another tune. Jesus H. Christ. :bang

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    Man I’m usually one of the more negative ones around here and I think this song has a lot of potential. The main riff between the guitar and bass absolutely grooves. The melody in general seems decent by recent Dave standards but once again butchered by awful singing. I’ve never heard him as pitchy in his career as he’s been on these new songs, and pitch is rarely a problem for him. But that being said, I can tell the chorus in the studio will be very good with some glossy perfected vocals

    Would have preferred one of the Batson Sessions songs polished up over this Come Tomorrow part deux song. Dave gets credit for the effort.

    Generic 80s rock strikes again. This band used to be so unique and now we get this lazy power pop/rock song.

    I donít understand how people are still getting disappointed by the fact that Dave isnít writing old school DMB songs anymore. That time has long passed and Iím not sure how people keep letting themselves be let down by that

    I think the disappointment comes from the fact that they have a 7 piece band and make songs that utilize an assortment of 4 at most with the other 3 barely making studio fills to be played live.

    I fully understand that the band is never going to have their signature sound again - that sucks in its own right - but they donít have to make musically uninteresting songs because of that.

    And the lyrics. Good god:

    Itís a lonely, lonely world that you are living in
    I just want to love
    Some kind of love
    I know because I feel it
    Itís a lonely, lonely, world that you are living
    I just want to love
    More love
    I know because I need it
    Itís the only thing



    ďI know because I feel itĒ? Just want love. Gotta have love. Love is love and love is all. Itís like a buzz word to Dave. Keeps throwing it at the board and hoping it sticks everywhere.

    I thought the same thing about it sounding like Aerosmith. After seeing it live and then 2 listens from you tube I think I like it. Chorus is super catchy.

    I dig it. It’s good but not great. I think it has potential. I do like TOTB and WATM quite a bit more than this tune though. All in all pretty pumped for the new album. The only new song so far that hasn’t jived for me is Windows. Excited to hear more new songs.

    Guys this was rumored to be the single. For a single spot on the album this certainly works and I would much rather this than most recent singles we’ve gotten. Let’s pump the brakes on the overly negative first reaction.
