(edit: tried to make this list, and it became much harder than expected. this is the only PJ album tracklist i've ever done where i needed to create my list from bottom/worst to top)

my rank:

Johnny Guitar
Just Breathe (cheesy as all shit, but can't deny it's a decent pop song for middle-aged moms)
The End
Gonna See My Friend
Speed of Sound
The Fixer
Unthought Known
Supersonic
Got Some
Force of Nature
Amongst the Waves

this is good. JG is far and away the best on the record.

Ugh PhatJ, first you love DMB and now this. It's like I don't even know you anymore.

I’ve never denied I like Amongst the Waves. Been open open about that since the 30 second clip was released before the album. That said, it’s still well down my overall PJ favorites list. Hell, it’s on Backspacer in which every song sucks to some degree. I like DMB, but mostly live stuff and old albums. Before These Crowded Streets is a great album though.

I remember seeing DMB for the first time on SNL with my dad. We went out and bought UTTAD and RTT the next day. I stuck around for a while and do appreciate the musicianship very much. But there's something so hippe-broish about Dave Matthews that I'll never be able to get past.

I completely ignore the outside crap associated with DMB and focus solely on the musicianship and the songs. Otherwise I’d probably hate them too like all the cool kids.

DMB was my first show without parents involved. I drove downtown Minneapolis and went with some friends. I was 16. It was a great first show and started a love of concert attending that has led to hundreds and hundreds of shows since. Good times.

The bridge on Supersonic is the best thing on the entire album.

Every other second besides the bridge is total garbage.

i likes 'em both.

speed of sound (studio) has risen in evenslow esteem perhaps more than any other song post 2009 (admittedly they've put out like 20 songs since then but whatever).

Yeah, best to not risk damaging your cool-factor. The approval of all those anti-DMBers is so much more valuable than enjoying something. Totes agree.

The musicianship is good but the songs are very bad

Except that song "Crush"... you know, the one that goes "crazyyy, how youuu, make it awwl awlriiite". I like that part, it sounds like a cool jazz fusion song

Then why not say that? I don't care one way or the other. But if you like something, like it and don't apologize. Ditto if you don't. Life's too short, you know?
