    Eat shit and don't be so judgmental. This album means a lot to me, personally. It came out shortly after I moved to a new city and started a new chapter in my life. I love the atmosphere the album creates. Sure, the album has a few flaws, but they did a good job putting an album together that represented where the band was at the time.

    What a rude thing to say. Sometimes it's hard to believe DMB fans can be such assholes.

    I really enjoy AFTW. Songs are better on the album than in a live setting imo. They haven't translated really well live for the most part. The song that's gotten the most love live, BBN, just isn't a favorite of mine.

    You make a very valid point...the songs don't translate well live

    If we were talking Big Whiskey then I could definitely agree here, but I think these songs have translated great live. I can agree Belly Belly Nice has digressed, but the only reason for that is because they cut Boyd's solo almost every time they play it. Other than that everything else sounds great. If Only is a dud that still sounds fine live, but it should not be as long as it is, and it should not be played as much as it is.

    These tunes sound the most like DMB before they turned hard rock, and in turn sound great live to me. Broken Things, Mercy, Gaucho, Sweet, Rooftop, Snow Outside and Drunken Soldier all sound like DMB and sound like great live DMB songs. Belly Belly Nice sounds great when Boyd is around (i.e. LT 29 version), Belly Full is fine as a Dave solo tune and If Only sounds good but is a dud of a song.

    agreed howell, bbn is a mess live.

    all of aftw is weird live, with the exception of sweet, mercy, and snow outside acoustic.

    I do not enjoy AFTW, for the most part. I think both live and on the album the songs come across empty and ball less. The 2 songs I can listen to are Broken Things and The Riff and they're not good live. Sweet is better live then on AFTW. Other then that, poop.

    It's a solid album, but something about it just feels unfinished. Definitely my least favorite DMB album...I can still connect with it at some points though

    No, no.... Stand Up feels unfinished. And flat. There is no way you can say with a straight face that Stand Up feels more polished and richly produced than AFTW. The difference is stark night-and-day.

    I've been revisiting AFTW the last couple of weeks and forgot how much I liked it. I still strongly believe this is their best post-Busted Stuff album by a pretty wide margin.

    Well 'sucks' is a bit unfair. I think I mentioned on here that yea it is not as good as say Crash but again what is hahaha. But anyway it's still an enjoyable album. What's so funny about enjoying it?

    Not a single thing wrong. We just have an infestation of trolls on these boards. AFTW is a damn fine DMB album, and has the added bonus of being even more generally listenable than Big Whiskey because of Lillywhite's production finesse.

    It's light years ahead of Stand Up in terms of complexity, but impossible to compare to the Big 3, which were a product of their time that cannot be recaptured--mostly because Roi's creative influence has been lost.

    Those who are just getting onto these boards have no idea what a beautiful place they used to be, or how uplifting the DMB community was in general back in the late 90's. Now the conversation is overcrowded with bored chauvinists and bullies who get off on pissing the stars out of every decent fan's eyes.

    Run, my friend. Run from here as fast as you can and just ENJOY THE MUSIC.

    Well wow that seems quite frightening hahaha. Every thing the band does is going to be compared to all of the releases before it. That will not change. I just think they need to be considered differently when doing those comparisions. There have been so many changes in the sound. Some times people get attached or extra attached to may be a certain era if you will or sound. Then the new material never stands a chance sadly.
