Steve Lillywhite starts the new DMB album hype machine

Steve Lillywhite compares the new Dave Matthews Band album to "the big three" in this Feb. 2012 tweet.

We really don’t know much about the new Dave Matthews Band album. We know the band recorded it in Seattle. We know the horn section is “gonna sound huge.” Most importantly, we know Steve Lillywhite’s producing it, and because he produced the band’s first three (and best three) albums, we’re all excited about that. But we’re not as excited about the album as Lillywhite himself, who’s already comparing it to “the big three,” Under the Table and Dreaming, Crash and Before These Crowded Streets. In fact, according to his tweet today, DMB fans should get ready to start using the term “the big four” instead.
