Really? I thought he sounded good on Sirius and thought he played some pretty inspired solos. Also thought it was impressive he knew the songs so well. I know heís played with Dave before, but I was surprised.

    A recording of Shake Me came on from this year and it didn't sound terrible.

    I really noticed it on DDTW, Madmanís Eyes, and I forgot which song but I think thereís even a point where you can hear through the music that Rashawn just said ďya know what, donít worry I got it just donít play itĒ


    But yes, DDTW stands out as especially bad, although WWYS stands out as especially good

    Haven’t listened to much of MSG, but from what I heard I wasn’t blown away by the sax player either. He was super low in the mix, and understandably so he didn’t quite fit. Solos were alright, but he was just kind of there. I was really surprised they got someone to fill in. Thought for sure it would have been Rashawn and maybe some guest horn players on Jimi Thing and a couple other tunes.

    I like Dreamgirl. Kind of a lot. The lyrics are ďmehĒ, but whatever.

    Yeah, I said it. Fight me.

    He was low in the mix. My friend and I actually remarked during the show that he was too quiet.

    The same thing happened at Mohegan. I admit, I was a little bummed about I Want A New Drug not being there. They can just stop with Sexy M.Fer, though. But I like Buddy doing I Want A New Drug.

    The Jimi at Mohegan was my favorite of the tour cause they cut all the covers except one, and the cover they did choose felt like it was a natural addition to the song. It made Jimi shorter than it had been in a while by quite a few minutes.

    Itís alrightÖdef not ďamazingĒ though, IMO.

    Lyrics could be better. And the melody is a bit cringey.

    Re: Share your unpopular DMB opinions.

    Be Yourself is a much better song than people give it credit for. Yes, the lyrics are terrible, but musically it's catchy and I'd love to see the lyrics redone. Also, I never understood how people could make fun of the derpa, derpa derpa beginning to Be Yourself, but love scat beginning to Sweet Up and Down.

    NOTE: I'm not saying that Be Yourself is as good as SUAD, it's nowhere close.

    Everyday has now become "A Buddy Tune" and now I finally enjoy when it shows up in the setlist.

    Great song. Never understood the hate either. That song is about as DMB as it gets these days.

    Also a fan...I enjoyed it when we saw it live in 2016. Some of lyrics may no longer be okay in that they could potentially be interpreted as an attack on certain communities. But I love the intro and the song is a great funky R&B tune. It's almost something you'd expect more out the the current iteration of the band rather than the last one...

    D&T Gorge '21 is solid, Dave solo Sweet Briar is my favorite version, don't like it full band

    But I think people admitting they don't like Jimi Thing isn't unpopular. If Jimi Thing were a 7 minute song, lots of people would then be calling for it to be shelved entirely.

    Well.. the only thing I like about Jimi is the jam outro (without the covers).

    I really like Angel. Not the “iiiiiiiiiiiiii am talking bout the DRUMMAHHHHH” Lovely Ladies versions, but I’d love to see it come back as even like a 5-6 minute song where they play it like the studio version plus some space for Tim & Rashawn to do some soloing.
