Fire away. I have them all but haven't listened to any of them yet. I'm too new still and hooked on BTCS

    The great: LT7, LT8, LT1

    The good: LT15, LT12, LT11, LT2, LT3, LT4, LT5 is just odd but really good.

    The bad: LT14, LT9, LT13

    The ugly: LT6, LT10

    something like that.

    Re: Rank the Live Trax albums from best to worst

    3, 5, 7, 12, 13, 15 are all pretty stellar

    1, 6, 8, 11, 14 are fun times

    2, 4, 9 are meh

    10 is a controversial one. I and a buncha others quite enjoy it, but for some reason a lot of people around here think its shit.

    i thought the audience was just insane crazy on that recording and the band played like it. 41 and ABI w/ Tom Morello rocked. Dreamgirl was even a truncated version and not really all that bad. I'm not a extreme hater of WTWE, IOY and Everday...and i don't understand why people give sister so much shit.

    This is not true, that show might have been the biggest turn around in DMB history. Sure it starts shitty, but it finishes up with LIOG, 41, Two Step, Ants, Jimi and a double encore of DDTW and PNP > Rapunzel

    Re: Rank the Live Trax albums from best to worst

    At this point there's no point in listing my favorites since it's all a jumble of random numbers that no one truly follows. I will say this: Too new to DMB, just discovering BTCS, and you have ALL of the LiveTrax albums?? I see you enjoy BitTorrent

    No no sir. I've been listening to them solid for about a month or two straight. Heard about 90% of their live albums and very few live shows that were bootlegged. And I use uTorrent and Dreamingtree

    Can someone explain why people hate on LT2? Loving Wings, best (IMO) Sugar Will and then a great Watchtower both with Santana..Good setlist. What seems to be the problem?

    Re: Rank the Live Trax albums from best to worst

    I own 2, 3, 6, 12, and 14.

    I really do enjoy 2 at Golden Gate Park. Love the opening run with OSW, WWYS, SMTS>Too Much, PNP>Rapunzel, Joyride, 41, LIOG, BOWA. Really solid first run there I think. Three is really solid and considered a "classic" show I believe and this is where I realized the brilliance of Seek Up.

    6 is ok, I understand why people wouldn't like it, but it is good. 12 is cool cuz its old-timey being back in 1995. And I think there are some great performances on 14, and it holds a special place in my heart because I was there and it was Roi's last show.

    I can't realy put them an order, but IMO LT10 is, by far, better than: 6, 9,13, 14 at least.
    The ones i listen most is 4, 5, 7, 12... i don't know, they are too many.

    Re: Rank the Live Trax albums from best to worst

    LT 3 is definitely the best (imo of course). Other's you can't go wrong with are (in no particular order) LT1, LT7, LT 8, and then I'd say all LT's between 11 and 15.

    The good but not great ones are LT 2, LT 5, LT 6, LT 9, LT10.

    I personally don't care for LT4 at all.

    Re: Rank the Live Trax albums from best to worst

    Here's my list. I only commented on notable ones

    LT 7 - Bela on LIOG, Two Step, 41, Typical, ect. Paul McCandless on Crash, Improv Jam/Drum Duet>>Ants. All of this make this my favorite
    LT 1 - My favorite version of Last Stop with Bela & Tim, great Rapunzel, #41, & Billies. I'll Back you Up
    LT 3 - My favorite mix out of any of them, Say Goodbye, The Maker, Bartender, Favorite Version of Ants
    LT 11 - Overall just a solid mix, and set. With lots of energy
    LT 13 - My favorite of the 2008 releases. I think it has the best mix and overall the better show than Mile High, LT 14 & LT 15
    LT 2 - SMTS>>ASTB>>PNP>>Rapunzel, Warehouse & Watchtower with Sanata are fantastic, BOWA, LIOG, The Stone, Loving Wings, ect. What more could you ask?
    LT 8
    LT 15 - Only reason this show is so high up is because of Tim Reynolds, Proudest Monkey, Spoon, Money, Crush, and Seek Up, everything else is no better than another '08 release.
    LT 4
    LT 6
    LT 5
    LT 12
    LT 14
    LT 10
    LT 9

    you would think that haha. The first half of that show is an abortion, the rest is decent. The mix is the only thing that makes it half-decent.

    That's because you are from Portugal. Biased opinions don't count.
