    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    Gotta say, I am liking the new songs including this one. I do agree with someone that said Dave seems to be stretching the vocal chords a little bit on it. Hoping heíll find that range.

    If chadizzy is right, we now have WATM, Ocean, Bismarck possibly and only thing. I think it makes for a good half album IMO.

    I donít want them to play all the songs before the album drops though. Iíd still like a few surprises and first listens.

    Might prefer ToT to Bismarck. Not a big fan of the chorus on Bismarck. Neither are bad songs.

    I think the Bismarck chorus is such a Dave chorus. Also love how the words change throughout the choruses the entire way.

    If we have WATM with the jam, OATB, SFTW, plus Bismarck, this really could be a special album. Like- “the one I’ve been waiting for” kind of a feeling.

    Give it a hot minute for the song to age on the road. I'm into it.

    Has an I Did It vibe for me. Like this song would fit in on Everyday or Stand Up.

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    The one thing about the only thing and walks chorus is the vocal flow. Dave is obviously capable of it on his own but I am wondering how much of an impact buddy has had on it. There’s a noticeable difference to me on the flow and arrangement of words and how Dave is holding notes. It passes the do I feel like singing along with this test for me and they just feel different than anything we’ve heard so far. Hopefully the rest falls in place behind the vocals.

    With a solid studio effort, working on the little things and subtle fills can really make these sound great. Part of me wishes they just held out to give them to us if these tracks are 100% set in stone at this point.

    I agree with this as well. I am too big of a fan and have no discipline so I will always go listen if they play it, but I think WATM and TOT would have been really good first listens on the studio album because thereís a lot going on in the background.

    Not mad about getting new music, but donít want to hear a majority of it before itís released is all Iím saying.

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    I know we are all entitled to our opinions but geeez take it easy on the guy. New songs like any artform will evolve. I am grateful for everything they continue to create after all these years, and feel so lucky just to be alive during the fleck of time on earth that is dmb.

    There are some tough critics out here - I hope Dave never sees the thread and the lack of appreciation.

    ďOh, then complain and pray I need more from above, like some greedy little pigĒ

    Re: The Only Thing (new tune)

    I love listening to a new album for the first time. And while I'm cool with knowing a handful of tunes before hand, (singles from the radio or with DMB, hearing them live) I don't want to necessarily go into an album knowing half or more of the songs.

    I really like the three new songs I heard at my first few shows, and I'm glad I got to experience seeing them live. But I haven't gone back to listen at home other than hearing Windows and OATB solo in 2020, and hearing WATM on the Grey St pod.

    I look forward to hearing this one (The Only Thing) at SPAC, otherwise I'll patiently wait for the album.

    unless you're not going to any shows this year, there's no point in holding out on listening to the new songs. you're probably going to hear them live anyway, especially if you're doing a multi-night stop. im going to the gorge and denver. what are the chances that these songs dont get played in any of those 5 nights? theres a better chance they'll play machead than NOT play any of these songs lol

    The chorus is has been in my head all weekend. The Buddy/Tim part keeps me coming back. I said it before, but that sounds like Tool and Dream Theater had a baby and I'm here for it. They can do a lot with this song. I expect it to be played at almost every show for the rest of the tour.

    Iím glad you enjoyed the Buddy and Tim section but to my ears that was the unlistenable part of the performance. Just a bunch of noise and no care for melodyÖ bleh

    Yep I started tweaking, then thought the same again in Charlotte. I think the songs would go really well together - especially on an album.

    Grey Street is over rated. Especially the third verse. It's words. Its just a verse of words. Nothing really original or interesting about it.
