    i never understand the hate for LT6, setlist is pretty sweet, performances are REALLY nice, and i think the mix is great! AWESOME crush, rapunzel and warehouse, and very nice last stop, what you are, pig, say goodbye, billies, IOY, american baby and WWYS

    definitely underrated (IMO of course)

    Re: Rank the Live Trax albums from best to worst

    Favorites:

    13: Best 2008 release IMO. Band was on fire.

    Highlights:
    Two Step Opener
    OSW
    Crush
    Recently>WW Jam
    Ants Marching (D&T Intro)

    12: Oldschool and so good. Best released Recently.

    Highlights:
    Recently
    WWYS
    #36
    #40

    7: NYE Show. Outstanding performances by the band and the Flecktones.

    Highlights:
    Seek Up
    Crash Into Me (Best released)
    LIOG w/ Bela
    Typical Situation w/ The Flecktones

    10: My favorite mix, crowd is insane. Band is on fire for a 2007 show.

    Highlights:
    SMTS>Bridge>Too Much (My favorite Bridge, right before stop time started)
    Idea of You
    Everyday
    Sister (Best version of this song)
    #41 w/ Morello
    LIOG

    3: Best 2000 show, performances are off the chart.

    Highlights:
    The Whole Show, wouldnt turn down a single song (except maybe The Maker). L&L, Raven, Busted Stuff, Seek Up, etc. Such a good setlist

    Great Shows:

    LT15: Sick 2008 show, Halloween midset
    LT16: The Ants show, great 2000 show
    LT19: I like it, band starts coming into its own with Jeff
    LT2: Classic show, love Sugar Will and Joyride
    LT5: Best One Sweet World
    LT11: You can't go wrong with a 2000 show
    LT8: Another fan favorite, Crazy-Easy, Super Freak Bridge, and Typical

    Good Shows:
    LT14: Underrated to me, often trashed. Leroi's last show
    LT18: Decent show, 96 is a good year
    LT17: Another decent show, neat to hear Leave Me Praying and FTBOW
    LT4: Classic show with the Richmond Jam
    LT1: Borderline Great-Good to me, Last Stop with Bela and Heartbeat>LL>PNP>Rapunzel

    Ok Shows

    LT6: Mix sucks, alot of Stand Up songs that are underdeveloped, Love Idea of You and Break Free though. Pig's another highlight.
    LT9: Worst show out of them all. Love the Sweet Caroline cover, and a few other gems, but the mix isnt great and same at 6, a lot of underdeveloped songs.

    There isnt a bad show they've released, and I listen to them all regularly.

    Awesome run of sons to open the show! My only issue with the show is the last few songs Dave's voice is shot, but not enough so to hate on it... I am definitely a fan of this release.

    Re: Rank the Live Trax albums from best to worst

    I'm kind of thinking of picking up a few LTs with the deal they have going on right now. I'm between 3, 7, 8, 13, 16, and 19. I already have 6 and 15 and will be getting 20 through the WH package.

    7, 3, 8. Do it. Maybe switch 8 for 16 if you prefer older stuff.

    Best 5:

    LT3, LT7, LT8, LT18, LT2

    only one I don't care too much for is LT9.

    LT 4: I honestly don't listen to this one much, from what I remember it is just okay
    LT 5: The most underrated LT imo, love the performances and David Ryan Harris brings a lot to what he guests on, best released Jimi Thing by far
    LT 6: Terrible mix, not a great release in general, Pig is pretty good
    LT 7: Amazing all around, mix isn't the best though, love Paul McCandless, one of the best
    LT 8: Amazing mix, great performances, one of the best
    LT 9: Not worth your time
    LT 10: Underrated. Some bad songs, but some good performances
    LT 11: Solid show, I enjoy this one a lot, definitely in the top half of the LT's
    LT 12: One of my favorites, love the rawness, a great show all around
    LT 13: Very good for the most part, standard '08 show with a few rarities
    LT 14: Nothing really exceptional here, don't listen much
    LT 15: Great show, bad mix IMO
    Roi's last Dreaming Tree was phenomenal, an amazing version of So Damn Lucky which may be my favorite, only Sledgehammer with Roi, Ants Marching, Space Between liberation. There are a few gems on this album.

    Agreed

    LT14 is a Top 5 DMB release for me, all time.

    LT14 is very mediocre. I don't care if it's Roi's last show, it's my least favorite out of the 2008 releases.

    I generally agree with this list, but I would put 28 much higher. Might shuffle a few other things around here and there, but it's pretty accurate to my tastes for the most part.

    It's a mediocre setlist played beautifully.

    A few weeks ago I think you said the same thing and I took note because I really love LT14 and it doesnt seem to get any mention here. Fantastic performances all around even if some of the songs aren't the best. Probably my 2nd most listened to LT after LT3. Can't get enough of DDTW, Dreaming Tree, Sledgehammer, IOY, SMTS>>ASTB>>Too Much, PNP>>Rapunzel and even Thank You.

    I can't rank all the LT's, but for me LT3 is far and away the best. Easily my 2nd favorite overall DMB release (after Central Park). LT13 and LT8 are both great. LT 1 and LT7 are great performances, but awful mixes that I barely listen to.

    I've never gotten the love for LT11 and LT2 - both good shows but something just feels off to me.

    I haven't heard all of the LT's, but of the ones I have both LT6 (Fenway) and LT9 (Vegas) are are the worst I've heard. Just bad performances. I understand why they were released, but the shows just weren't good.

    I do tend to mention/defend LT14 pretty often around here

    I enjoy LT2, but I get what you're saying. LT11, on the other hand, is just straight up boring to me. Makes no sense, since LT3 is damn near perfection. I don't know if it's the mix or what, but LT11 puts me to sleep.

    Yeah, something sounds off about LT11. Dave's voice sounds a lot different then LT3, and the shows were only two days apart. I don't know if he was tired or just getting sick, but it doesn't sound like he put a lot of effort that night.
