I don't like to bitch and complain but...

I usually cant stand when I see these kinds of things but I've been looking at the sets lately and I just have to say they've been pretty lackluster...

Yes I know I'm not there and only watching from home. I have downloaded some of the recent shows and yeah the band does sound pretty good but I'm just getting tired of seeing/listening to the same songs over and over again.

I know there are dozens of you out there that troll the boards and are going to tear this apart but I could care less about your repetitive jokes that show up every time someone complains.

There's got to be some people out there who agree....right?

    This thread will not end well.

    The sets have been pretty good, for the most part.

    Re: I don't like to bitch and complain but...

    The band is on fire. Sure I would drop a couple of songs for some others, but they sound 50 times better than the last couple of year IMO. And honestly, they are shaking it up as much as they ever have.

    For where the band is now, you can't ask for too much more from the main set except for maybe a few less BW songs.

    The encores are shit.

    the only thing they need to work on is fixing some of these encores because theyve been nothing short of pathetic. they consistantly cut good songs in favor of SDL, or a BW song. abomination.

    The band starts off each show with 3-4 oldies and then hits with a big block of newer stuff. Then switches on and off with old/new until a subpar encore.

    They just need to get stupid ass Sister out of the encore... well, out of the current setlists and all future setlists because that song is a pile of shit... close to one of their worst songs ever... I like Some Devil, Little Red Bird, & Baby Blue E1 A LOT more... other than that, the setlists have been fine imo... great job at mixing it up this year.

    Re: I don't like to bitch and complain but...

    Weak encores are all I feel need to be fixed. They've been doing a great job in the main sets though. Would love to see Shake Me and Funny dropped in favor of Alligator Pie and Dive In every once in a while, that'd be good.

    Re: I don't like to bitch and complain but...

    DM needs to work on:

    1) Writing better encores

    2) Changing the order of songs. If he's going to write 7-8 BW tunes into the set, spread them out more.

    3) Either not caring so much about curfew, or at least SOMETIMES cutting the BW tune instead of the non-BW tune (DIDO, WWYS, Typical, etc.). Enough BW tunes have already been played, right?

    Dave Matthews was never great at writing sets, it just used to not matter because they never had any bad songs prior to 2001.

    Re: I don't like to bitch and complain but...

    ok, the main sets are really terrific. The opening 4 or 5 songs of most shows recently have been really good. The encores however have been AWFUL. so, I can understand because the things we all remember most from any show are the last few songs. And when they end their shows so poorly, reasonably some are left a little upset.
