Stand Up, the new album is simply not very good; it was produced by a Rap producer, and that's what it sounds like; every song has like one verse and each song is at least 1 minute too long; the only songs worth listening to on it are American Baby, Dreamgirl, Old Dirt Hill and Joyride which isn't actually on the album. Live concert, go with the 2003 Central Park Concert. That one is phenominal.
I disagree blank. I don't like the album better than Under the Table or Crash but once you get used to the different style of playing, it grows on you. "You Might Die Trying," "Hunger for the Great Light," and "Steady as We Go," are currently my favorites along with "Dreamgirl" and some of the others you mentioned.
Under the Table and Dreaming is a kickass album though. Jimi Thing, What Would You Say, Ants Marching, Dancing Nancies, Warehouse are among my favorites on that disc. Crash Into Me, Two Step, So Much To Say, and my favorite DMB song, #41, are among the bests on the Crash album.
