Except tLWS did leak, and it clearly would've been in the running for this band's magnum opus.

    This is an appropriate post for this thread... at least I hope it is a unpopular opinion.

    Also, is your signature referring to cannibalism or just misspelled?

    I would prefer to listen to everyday over away from the world. There isn't a song on aftw I would put above so right, if I had it all, or sleep to dream her or what you are.

I think part of the bias against AFTW and BW&GK are just that they're new and less comfortable and they play the songs that way live for the most part.

    Most people on here would be pretty happy to hear super old songs out of the collection at just about every show that they go to, the Grey trilogy (or any part of it), Seek Up, Recently etc... they're great songs and they're even better live because they're great songs and the band is so comfortable with them and they have them pretty well worked out from years and years of repetition.
    I think the reason some people aren't crazy about it is because it's so quiet and understated. It's the exact opposite of Big Whiskey which is loud and in your face.

    It has some of my favorite songs the band has ever done: Snow Outside, Broken Things, Sweet, The Riff. And every other tune on it is pretty solid as well. There are no duds on it, which is a major problem with some of the bands other recent work.

    Overall I couldn't be happier with it. Most well produced and written DMB album in a long time.

    I don't disagree with you on this. It's a lot like the guys on the podcast have said "We don't want to hear new quiet songs, play the old quiet songs!" Like I said, I think the highs on the album are quite high, I didn't really care for Mercy or Gaucho, they're ok, I don't think they're in any way indicative of the band's best work, which I guess most of us feel is true about basically all of the singles they've released over their career.

    Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    Away from the World felt a bit hollow and uninspired

    Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King is worlds better

    Stand Up is worse as a studio album, but the songs are better live than those from Away from the World

    BW is like 50/50 for me

    Stand Up is an awful album but some songs have grown on me live

    This is as close as I can come to describing the three.

    Away from the world has its songs, and some do very well live, but left much to be desired in the studio

    BW is a fun album. In the studio and for the most part enjoy it live so long as Shake Me doesn't close the show. Not a bad song live at all, but should not close a show.

    Stand up really translated well live IMO. They really don't play much of it live, but I like what they do for the most part.

    Big Whiskey is pretty good. Got to be in the right mood for it though.

    Stand Up, everyone knows that's a bad album. Wouldn't care if I never heard another track from it again.

    this is the nick we all know and (don't) love. It was actually kind of unsettling this summer to read so many posts from earlier this tour that were kind and gentle and, well, reasonable.

    well, if you would of just said you disliked the album, instead of describing it as blowing fuckable trash, you know.

    wait, what if they played a tasty set run of Hello Again, Bayou, YMDT and ABI? You'd be dancing in the aisles.

    Out of those, Hello Again is the only song I would actually be excited for. I don't mind Bayou but could never hear Die Trying again and be happy, and have no interest in seeing ABI.

    What benefit do you get for reminding everyone every single chance you get that you find Big Whiskey And The GrooGrux King to be such a deplorable album?

    I can only think of one: ATTENTION.

    lol that is a "tasty" run.

    I don't understand how people like Bayou yet don't like Seven. Dave repeats "you" in both songs. It's the same thing.

    I feel like a lot of people that are down on it now liked it at first, I was one of them. I liked it initially because it wasn't Stand Up part 2, but then the more I listened to it the more I became indifferent to it and realized the songs weren't that good.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    Songs I skip when listening to studio albums

    BW - LITHOG, Seven, Baby Blue, You & Me

    AFTW - Belly Belly Nice, Mercy, Gaucho, Belly Full, If Only

    4/12 skipped on BW versus 5/11 skipped on AFTW. For me, BW is the more listenable studio album.
