Sorry if there's already a thread for this band. Blues Traveler has been one of my favorite, if not my absolute favorite band for quite a few years, now. I first heard them at around the age of five, as my sister would constantly listen to "Run-Around". I was around thirteen when I finally got a copy of "Four", and immediately began listening to it almost non-stop. To this day I believe it has to be one of the greatest albums in the history of music. With a versatile track listing featuring the introspective "Hook", the upbeat pop-hit "Run Around", the earsplitting harmonica, bass, and guitar solos of "Crash Burn", and of course the hidden gem of the album, the ballad "Just Wait." Not only is John Popper a virtuoso harmonica player and excellent singer who could hold a note for an hour if need be, he's a brilliant songwriter. As a fan of the band, I could pick out their familiar sound anywhere. His lyrics are simply brilliant, and have influenced my own songwriting to an immeasurable degree. Other notable songs include "Sweet Pain" (one of the greatest songs ever written. If you've never heard it, make sure you do as soon as possible.), "But Anyway", "Just For Me", and "Carolina Blues."
