Been contemplating this for the last few years now. If the drive wasn't so long, and then I'd get the flock outta there early too.

    Totally forgot they gave it a 4 minute epic intro . Once it actually starts, this video is essentially people talking with some music playing in the background

    The best part about Spaceman is the 9 second Tim Solo at the end that signifies that a better song should be coming soon....even if it IS Cornbread. At least people will actually cheer.
    Right the song length is key, which is why I can stomach a You and Meh or Shake Meh but a Spaceman, Subpar Proudest Monkey, or the old 15 minute Mercy (pre buddy) were brutal.

    Speaking of, here's a fun fact: The first time I heard the lyric "thought I saw a Spaceman trying to get laid" I actually got douche chills.

    Another fun fact: I was in the Camden Pit, which was an absolute shit show, in 2014. They opened the electric set with Spaceman and you could hear a pin drop.

    It's a 0/10, which is an exclusive list for me. Spaceman and Plastic Girl are my only 0/10's. Plastic Girl being killed quickly makes it the second worst.

    i was in the camden pit too. i dont think there has ever been a bigger disappointment to a show starting. everybody was so amped up and then....that. the dreamgirl opener in 2013 close, but spaceman was the most deflating opener i've seen.

    i think another problem with it (and i have this issue with LITHOG too) is just the tone of the song at the beginning. its not quite slow, like a LLD or DaD, but its not upbeat either, and the music itself is kind of a downer. i feel like it falls too much. its like a musical sigh and its hard to get excited for it.

    My first ever Pit experience and I was massively disappointed. People pushing and shoving all night. Really drunk people getting a little rowdy. This 5 song run to start the electric set.

    Spaceman Ľ
    Corn Bread
    Save Me
    Write a Song
    Belly Belly Nice

    The set did get better, but I remember being so annoyed and just wanting to leave.

    Write a Song is also another song I absolutely cannot stand, so I wasn't happy. It seems to follow me.

    I never hated You & Me. I don't know how I'd feel if I take in yearly shows and get it at every one, but I don't hate it like lots here do.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    I find fonz to be rated correctly by the greater music community. Competent but uninspired as a general rule. His solos are like finger exercises with pedals. No feel, no soul. Heís clearly the weak link on that stage at this point in time. But heís solid and knows everything inside and out, so here they are.

    But if he had to try out today, he doesnít measure up to the talent they draw now. I think that some like to cut him down because he acts the belligerent d-bag on social media. But that doesnít make him overrated. (Not that I am saying this is what Dolan is saying what he is, just an observation that being the most aggressive member of the band with critical fans doesnít endear one with said fans)

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    Stefan has absolutely gone out of his way to improve every single year. He said so himself he practices things he’d never do with DMB. That alone cuts him some slack from me and others.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    I can't help but feel the folks that bash Fonz's abilities and contributions to the band know little about music, let alone bass playing.

    It's even more obvious on social media when folks let their lack of agreement with his social/political beliefs color their opinion of his musicality.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    Because Stefan is so technically and naturally gifted, this does not take away from his music. It does not mean he does not have soul. He's got it and it all seems so effortless for him up there on stage. That's a good thing not a bad thing

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    The only way a "Fonz is overrated" take is unpopular is if there is a mass consensus that he's one of the greatest bassists alive....and I've never seen that take.

    So I'm just going to have to go with the take is incorrect.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    DMB isn't a summer band even though they tour in the summer. Their songs are better suited for fall/winter.

    There's nothing like sitting around the Christmas tree and firing up Tripping Billies

    I've seen them indoors in fall/winter twice and it wasn't nearly as fun of experience as an outdoor summer DMB show

    I'd say BTCS and Some Devil are Fall/Winter albums, but the rest are summer

    Opposite here. Prefer just about every show to be indoors.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    Their music is way better suited for an outdoor show,

    but i think i prefer listening to them personally at home in the fall/ winter over the summer time as well- the D&T shows especially

    Summertime is for outdoor concerts. Get a spot on the lawn, kick off your sandals, sweat, and double fist strawberry maragritas.
