I love Leroi's last Ants and that's by far my favorite. Ants has never sounded just right with Jeff in 3.0.


I would argue that the renewed energy and passion was there even pre-accident. I was lucky enough to go to a few shows in June that year and I distinctly remember talking after about how the shows felt more energized and inspired than anything I had seen since before the SU tour.

True. SPAC 08 on youtube is incredible.

It just hit me how good of a song Death on the High Seas is. I never gave it a chance before because the falsetto got on my nerves. But now it makes sense to me

LT 34 has the greatest One Sweet World, as far as 'no instrumental intro' versions go.

Yup just awful

I honestly don't know that they can do anything else. Seek Up is a top 3 song in the catalogue but now its a noisy wreck with horns blasting most of the song. DDTW, Rapunzel, Typical, Warehouse are all shells of their former selves bc of the roaring electric guitar or the horn hi-note contest or a monotonous outro that is the same every single time. Jimi Thing has become a 20 minute filler at every show and again the outro is the same every time. The Sexy MF addition is straight stupid. I tried to watch the show the other night on Periscope but it was just not interesting anymore.

Rhyme and Reason is better than Halloween and Last Stop. Why it's not receiving the same level of demand from people here is flabbergasting.

One of Dave's best riffs.

Just doesn't seem to be any differentiation really. It seems as if it's the same set just different order every night.

Agreed wholeheartedly, though I do love Last Stop

Tim, Jeff, and Rashawn Ross are three incredibly talented musicians from a technical aspect, but all 3 are borderline awful when it comes to a feel for melody. Boyd from a skill level aspect is pretty mediocre but he has a nice sense sense for melody occasionally. Long story short I miss LeRoi a lot and I even miss Butch. Piano solos are boring but he had an incredible sense for melody and dynamics, two things this band has severely lost. Now they're all up there competing to make the most obscene noises from their instruments. End of rant

This is exactly right. I just don't understand how Dave can know what Seek Up sounded like with Roi Moore, and then seemingly enjoy the way it sounds with Coffin and Ross just blaring as loud and long as they can on it. Edit: Meant to quote the post before this one.

You can think that. R&R is great as well, but its a song theyve been playing every year, so you shouldnt be surprised that LS gets more of a reaction.

Also, playing it one time isnt enough. It should be constantly in rotation.

Sets are stale, not as in the fact the new songs are accomanpying them- but stale as in Last Stop disappeared- cornbread, seven, jimi, Sexy MF, have taken over.

If they are going to play Jimi everynight I atleast wish they would change up the outro on a night to night basis.

The current outro is great and the way they should have been doing Sexy MF the whole time.

DMB Sets have been "stale" since 1993.

Expecting things to be different now is silly.

couldn't disagree with the bold (and the rest of the post for that matter) more.

Why don't you explain why you disagree, just saying you disagree isn't the greatest argument ;). I am not even one to complain about the band on here, I pretty much do it never. Tim's solos rarely have direction, he's just hitting a lot of notes in a small period of time. Any guest that the band has that plays electric guitar plays better more enjoyable solos than Tim (for example, Warren Haynes). I think Rashawn probably has a great sense of melody but him and Jeff are all about wailing these days.

Being "stale" when they only have a catalogue of about 40 songs is different from being "stale" when they have a catalogue of well over 200 songs. It's one thing to only have a certain number of songs to play, it's another thing when they have a ton they could play, but only play a small amount of them on a regular basis.

Also, cutting three songs when the show still ends 10 minutes before curfew is damn near unforgivable. I would have been livid had I been at that show.

For 25 years they have had a set stable of songs for the tour. It's not going to be different in 2016.

Also, weird obsession with this site and needing to play until exactly 11:00. I'd love for the band to play another 2 hours, but ending at 10:50 or 11:00 isn't worth the venom it gets here.

It is when they arent coming on stage until almost 8:30.

DMB has set their own standards in the past, theyre not living up to them in many ways right now.

Also, its not that they have a stable of songs, its that those are the only songs getting played right now. They are making no effort to play anything they cant already nail in their sleep.

That extra ten minutes could have been used to play Ants or Rapunzel.
