iTunes Editors’ Notes

After three albums as a major-label cult act, winning fans mostly on the road and through word of mouth, jam band Blues Traveler broke out in a big way with Four. Frontman John Popper’s virtuosic harmonica style was suddenly a pop sound, as the bouncy lovelorn plaint “Run-Around” became a long-running radio staple alongside alt-rock and dance singles. Blues Traveler exploited its mainstream-friendly side knowingly, with another key track here, “Hook,” critiquing the ingredients necessary to reel in a large audience. Though Four doesn’t display the adventurism of a Grateful Dead or an Allman Brothers Band, it shows plenty of affection for their styles, with the closing “Brother John” putting a jumpy, hard-to-pin-down rhythm to use and “The Mountains Win Again” shining light on a soaring slide-guitar line. The album ended up one of the most visible classic-rock-styled releases of its era.

Customer Reviews

Jamming to the beat in my head.

I can't believe I found this album. You know when you get a song in your head and you have no clue where you heard it. Hook was that song for me over the last 11 years. Great lyrics and an awesome sound. The early 90s was a good time for music and Blues Traveler is one band that will never be forgotten.

The best

If you are going to purchase any Blues Traveler album, this one is a must have. Blues Traveler is simply one of the best and most all-round talented bands out there and does a great job combining rock and blues.

hahahahaha

Listen closely to the lyrics of Hook; he's saying that its the chorus(hook) that brings you back, and it doesn't matter was he says in the song because no one pays attention. Pure genius!
