Music Review

Album Review: 'Under the Table and Dreaming' (1994)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Dave Matthews Band

Their fancy folk-guitar picking and Latin percussion passages prove these biracial Virginia jam- rockers have chops. But the band mostly offers a formless brand of laid- back eclecticism, tainted by smarmy inner-awareness poetry. C+
