People magazine said that "the Matthews ensemble sounds even crisper on their solid followup and proves that their previous record was not just an intriguing oddity."[1] Comparing DMB to their musical contemporaries (like Hootie and the Blowfish), Jim Derogatis with Rolling Stone magazine said "Snappier violin-driven excursions such as "Tripping Billies" mix the progressive rock of U.K. or Eddie Jobson-era Roxy Music with the earthy folk rock of Fairport Convention. This eclecticism gives Matthews a slight edge over his peers, but that's sort of like saying you prefer vanilla ice cream to vanilla frozen yogurt. Me, I dig Cherry Garcia."[2]
