Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

Been a fan for a long time, been to about 5 shows (all during the "big 3" era), and been lurking this site for a long time. In regards to the band I have a ton of respect for the opinions and knowledge of this community.

I thought this would be a good idea that could spark some new debate. I'll start...


I like Stolen Away. Could never really understand all the hate it gets around here. I'll be honest, I'm no musician, and know very little about the technical side to it...is it a poorly crafted song from a musical perspective or something?

    Agreed, can someone explain what's so awful about Stolen Away?

    Sweet is overrated? I thought most people around here disliked it...I was about to say it was underrated actually, I like the song a lot

    Also:
    I like Eh Hee and WTWE, but never got into Typical Situation

    Not exactly a DMB opinion, but I think that TR3 is one of the worst live bands out there. The way most people talk about them in here, it's like they're a top touring act. Maybe I caught the one bad show or something, but geez, half of the audience left the show by the time I did, which was about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through the show.

    Angel with the Lovely Ladies is good.
    The Stone is over rated.
    Mercy and Sweet are both good tunes.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    I was listening to LT8 the other day and I really miss Butch on #41. Wow, what great fills. I complained about long solos all the time at shows, but I miss Butch playing along to most songs. Also, I think Shotgun is a turd, and that's a pretty unpopular opinion around here.

    Out Of My Hands does not get enough love around here. It is a decent song, not great, but imo top 3 Stand Up.

    Two Step should be 8 mins at most.

    Daves screaming where falsettos once shined is extremely annoying.

    Dave Matthews is NOT conceited.

    This isn't extremely unpopular but I do see it getting some hate. YMDT is an absolute beast live.
