Considering Dave Matthews only attracts jam band people and frat-bro types I don't see any hipster correlation at all. Kings of Leon meets Yes? That guys sounds like he's just out of touch with current music.

Even if both Blue and Red are represented more than Y&G, 4-5 is still a good number of songs. If it's 10-12 tracks (like the Alice in Chains Greatest Hits CD I've been listening to this past week), that's possibly HALF of the CD.
LoG might be the best Pantera-clone around and they are heavy and whatnot and good live, but you gotta admit.... their last three or four records are all pretty much the same. They've got a good formula that they stick to.
