my mate loves em, i don't know them beyond what he played me. they sounded a bit stadium rock to me.
as a bit too close to some kind of sickening counting crows style bland stadium fodder for my liking whenever my mates played me any.
the kind of thing that 'witty' reviewers would call "music for accountants"
But my mate does have really good taste, and makes a good argument about them being a live experience (not surprising if they're slightly stadium rock) and that their guitarist is one of the best going.
they are pretty impressive live. but if it weren't for the fact my girlfriend wanted to see them, i'd never have gone.
they're kind of a folky version of coldplay.
shit on everyone else from a height.
sadly this is literally the case as their tour bus once emptied it's septic tank through a hole in a bridge onto some pensioners.
Dave Matthews epitomizes MOR music...and as that goes he does it rather well. He's obviously an extremely talented guitarist (some of those jazz chords he plays defy my own fingers capabilities...so I'm naturally impressed with that). But in the end, he's MOR.
Now, my British (and elsewise int'l origins) friends, I'm off to see the Wrens. Ta till later, then.
what are these magical jazz chords?
people have told me "ooh, i can do this great jazz chord" but i have no idea what they're on about. any examples?
say sickening, bland and Counting Crows in the same sentence surely?
and i'd do it again in an instant !
