The Dave Matthews Band have never been prone to doing the expected, and that mercurial nature is reflected in the unique structure of this, their first "greatest hits" collection. The quotation marks aren't meant to indicate a lack of firepower in the grooves of the two-disc set but to point out that Matthews and company didn't simply extract the most recognizable material from their previous releases. Yes, there are a dozen studio favorites tucked into the grooves of The Best of What's Around's first disc -- notably "Crash into Me" and the full eight-minute version of "Crush" -- but those offerings are augmented by a second CD laden with live material that's seeing the light of day for the first time. The concert stage is the band's natural habitat, and they stalk it with plenty of fire on these songs, which were culled from six years' worth of shows dating back to a spiraling take on "Say Goodbye" recorded at Denver's Mile High Stadium in the summer of 2000. Encompassing both quiet intensity -- in evidence on "Everyday," which features guest vocals by Matthews's South African compatriot Vusi Malsahela -- and raucous energy, which flows from the "Louie Louie" break in "Warehouse," the eight-tune salvo not only showcases the best of the DMB so far; it also lets listeners know that they can expect plenty more volumes down the road.
