    Once they get going thereís no telling what can happen. I agree they are great!


    My unpopular opinion is that I hate hearing Seek Up at a show. Whenever I hear those opening notes I die inside a little, knowing Iím gonna have to slog my way through the next 15-20 minutes. I was present at a 25 minute version of that song!! Wouldnít have been so bad if there werenít also 9 songs from Stand Up! 6/8/05, my worst dmb show by far.

    I said this once before here, I'd welcome any show from '18-'22 as a LT.

    6.7.22 should be a LT. It has many new songs I love, not broadcasted on Sirius XM, and Derek Trucks on two songs!

    Hard disagree with this. You still get the full jam on LIOG.

    The reprise of Last Stop is the jam.

    Yes. Was thinking this during the show! Of course, I am biased.

    Most agree that BTCS is amazing. No Pig, Stone, Spoon, Last Stop, or Halloween (yet?) is a true bummer. And only 3 DT's.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    I’ve been spoiled because my top encore closets are Two Step, Ants, Halloween, and Watchtower

    Honestly, if I leave a show and one of those isn’t the closer, I’m a little disappointed.

    Honestly, I'm the same way. I don't need a 19 minute seek up, I could get Raven, YNK, Break free and maybe even Joyride in that timeframe and I'd take them 10/10 times over SU.

    Dear Dave,

    The Time Bomb 💣 intro lyrics to Two Step is getting f**king old!
    It was way better when you made stuff up on the spot live. That is all.

    Itís been old for over a decade now.

    Unfortunately Dave seems to have lost his ability to improv lyrics anymore. Heís too old now haha and sold his soul to the teleprompter.

    I don’t like the studio version of Granny on the UTTAD re-issue. (Not sure if this is an unpopular opinion or not).

    Iíd take Lawlor over Tim any day of the week. It seems that Tim stopped jamming the day that Buddy came aboard. Seems like he really gets down on two or three songs max per night.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    I find the term "unpopular opinion" to be fascinating. Like, recently I've been revisiting some of the bands work from the early '00s (Everyday and Stand Up). I find a lot of the band's music from that era to be god fucking awful. And while I think the songs on Busted Stuff are superior in every way to the other albums I mentioned, I honestly don't enjoy Busted Stuff as an album because I think the production stripped the music from The Lillywhite Sessions of all their magic.

    If I stated that opinion here, it wouldn't even be called anywhere near a hot take. But if I took a survey at one of their sold out shows where most people have no idea am.org even exists, my opinion would definitely be considered unpopular.

    I just find that interesting.

    I guess my unpopular opinion would be that I like Everyday, and I like to revisit Stand Up to keep my DMB listens fresh.

    That's the thing. I think if we took your opinion in the context of the DMB fandom as a whole (as of right now), I don't think your opinion is unpopular at all.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    Would this count as one?

    Dreams of Our Fathers, Snow Outside, and Virginia in the Rain are just as good of songs & studio recordings as anything off of the Big 3.

    This is fucking killer.
    As far as Hello Again goes my unpopular opinion is that Hello Again is not a good song. It's forced, it's DMB trying to make a countryish song and it doesn't work. I don't get the love.

    My opinion of the actual song aside, my unpopular opinion about Dreams of our Fathers is this:

    I can't find the video where Boyd performs this song with a different group, possibly The Way Back. I believe this recording should never EVER become lost media.

    I like She.

    Cool riff and time signature, short and sweet. This, coming from someone who thinks CT is an abomination of an album.
