At this point in their career, New York’s Blues Traveler don’t need new converts; with the intensely loyal jam-band constituency firmly on their side, they can continue to record inoffensive, predictable CDs like this and earn enough tour revenue to make it all worthwhile. This record will no doubt please the band’s fans, rife as it is with taut, midtempo blues-rock grooves and vocalist John Popper’s frenetic harmonica note-storms, which he has mercifully toned down. But the songwriting lacks the dynamism of the band’s playing. Thirteen years after their first album, Blues Traveler seem to be riding a rut in the road.
