Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

Ok, here we go

--Halloween sucks. Like, a lot. Dave should stop pretending to be metal. He's NOT metal.

--Time Bomb sucks, and so does Jesus

--Listener Supported is no good. Lovely Ladies + Roi's off notes make for an off night. I'd rather eat garbage than listen to this show.

--Stand Up>Everyday

I'm sure there's more...

    Also, DMB is not nearly as good as they used to be. Face it. We're all putting more money into a worse band. I still love the band, but I wish I could have seen them in the early days.


    And the crowds at shows, wayyy more often than not, suck a bag of dicks.



    Even with all of this, I'm giddy with excitement each time I get an opportunity to see them live.
    I agree with all of this. The first shows I went to were 99-01, which IMO were
    he best the band ever put out. The shows today are not even close. That being said, I still enjoy a DMB show as much as any I go to, it just isn't the same. I also agree about Rashawn. Extremely talented musician, but overbearing. Like the straw that broke the camel's back sometimes. I'd much rather have a keyboard in the band than a trumpet.

    I enjoy the lovely ladies...there, I said it.

    I also enjoy Butch.

    I'm tired of Tim.

    While a set killer, I do like OOMH.

    Also I'll take BW over Everyday any day of the week, by miles and miles.

    I'm a fan of Stolen Away. Not so much the drum machine, but mostly for the sax/violin interplay. The way BT and Roi weave in and out of each other on that tune is absolutely gorgeous.

    It's fantastic. Massively underrated.

    Halloween is one of, if not the most over-rated song in the catalog. This song is equal to Dreamgirl in terms of listen-ability.

    no thats legit. i was just asking because one of the reasons why i like stefan is because he isn't lazy. if it weren't for him, Dave would be playing dream girl instead of minarets, just to name one example.

    I really like Cornbread.

    I liked the 07 tour.

    I love You & Me.

    I can't get even remotely excited about listening to the band live these days. (Though I do like AFTW)

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    I enjoy getting Cornbread at a show, even the millionth time. I don't go to a ton of shows each summer so that probably helps, and seeing as I only hear it at a show (never on my own listening time), I get into it.

    Seek Up, while lyrically might be Dave's best work, is way too long and boring. They need to dramatically decrease the 12 minute jam at the end and virtually eliminate the jam at the beginning.

    I thoroughly enjoy Rashawn's trumpet work. Of course I'd rather it be the way it was before, but I will say I've grown to like it quite a bit.

    I think YMDT is completely awful. I know it's not considered one of the best by anyone, but most people seem to at least like it, and I find it to be completely miserable. Nothing good about that song for me.

    I think Baby Blue is the best song Dave has written since tLWS.

    Interesting. Never knew of anyone who did not like this show.

    gotcha, and i certainly don't dislike that about stefan. i think what i dislike is how much into himself he has gotten the past few years, seems like a lot has to do with social media.

    but completely agree about dave vs. stefan in the category you mentioned

    and i will never forget when stefan said that. really made me think poorly of dave. "hey dave, don't we bring back minarets?"....dave starts noodling....."wow this reminds me of dreamgirl"

    wow when was this? I must've missed this tweet or something. As a guitar player though, I can tell you that the riffs are extremely similar and even in the same key (although Minarets is interesting while Dreamgirl is a recycled staple of western music).

    Also, I absolutely love Stolen Away, but wish the drum machine wasn't on it
