AFTW is way overrated around here.

Two Step, in its current form, sounds worse than it ever has.

This is my unpopular opinion: Busted Stuff > tLWS.

EDIT: except some specifical parts of tLWS, generally i like more busted stuff as a whole

You Never Know is the most overrated song in the catalog (So Right is a very close 2nd). I think this b/c while most people think the lyrics are genius, I'm of the opinion that Dave shit them out with little to no thought at all.

Also (while I hate the ED album) I enjoy Angel... even the extended versions with the ladies.

AFTW lyrics suck

I really hope Butch comes back one day.

I don't really care for the trumpet sound in DMB, although I think Rashawn is a musical genius and essential to the band's success.

Crazy Easy is a top 10 DMB song.

Belly Full is the new-age #40.

Seek Up's cringe-worthy. But you...you already knew that.

DMB is pretty bad.

Would die happy if I never paid to hear Cornbread again and only heard Watchtower every 10 shows. Will never ever park in Hartford again and suspect that WH SPAC lower pavilion are like Giants tickets - only "family" gets them.

Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.
 
I love Dreamgirl, Sleep to Dream her
I like Stolen Away, Old Dirt Hill
I think Everyday is a pretty good album and isn't really comparable to the big three because of the differences in sound (its almost like a different band)
I think Stand up had/has potential (EWU got better didn't it)
This isnt unpopular but Captain could have been the best DMB song ever if they kept it the way it was from tLWS
I like the Live at Luther College version of Minarets the best
I think Beach Ball is the best song from the BW era

I like Stolen Away as much as some big 3 songs.

Live at least. Don't really care for it studio.

stand up is better than big whisky.

DMB gets a pass by an incredible amount of fans in terms of the quality of music they put out...myself included. What I mean is that if OAR or some other band had released AFTW I would hate it, but I currently consider somewhere between tolerable and decent.

butch taylor was essential to DMBs once greatness.

Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.
 
folsom is a good show

big whiskey is very close to stand up bad.

DMB will never be great again without Leroi

baby blue is big 3 quality

more boyd, less rashawn

even more less rashawn

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?


Add on...



I do not think there is anything special at all about #40, sub par riff where dave sings with the notes, were all here because we love how dave sings over crazy riffs with crazy tempos. It isnt just because I dont like the fact that its short and unstructured (I love Little Thing), but to me this song is redundant and boring

Just because there's one great song doesn't make the album as a whole not shitty. (these aren't my beliefs necessarily, I'm just making a point)

Every time I think about this, I get sad because it is soooo true.



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.
