Get Your Groogrux On

I've previewed another album online - this time, it's Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King by Dave Matthews Band. It's their first offering since the death of saxophonist Leroi Moore (a.k.a the Groogrux King).

If you like Dave Matthews Band, you'll enjoy this new album. It's classic DMB. The band sounds pretty tight, even minus one member. Some of these songs are destined to become concert favorites. The drumming is really incredible! Carter Beauford is a truly great drummer, no doubt about that.

A few of the songs are forgettable, but most of them are very good. My favorites on first listen are "Shake Me Like A Monkey," "Why I Am," "Squirm," and "Seven."
