Generally I agree. However, when it closed the 6/17/03 Columbus show (after we already had the 1st Last Stop in 4 years), I thought my head was going to explode because that show was so awesome! To date still my favorite show, mostly due to those 2 songs. I went out the next day and bought tickets to the 6/24/03 Riverbend show, which was also an incredible show, and my #2.

    Re: Unpopular DMB Opinions

    Not sure if this is too unpopular, but I think Rashawn Ross is amazing and has become an essential part of the band. I love what he brings to songs, and just overall he is the f***ing man.

    I think the band is played out and will never make a good album again.

    I don't plan on attending a show from now on.

    based on the "Steve Lillywhite in the Parking Lot..." thread, I'm detecting mass quantities of overhyping regarding the new album. Hope I'm wrong.

    Sorry if one of these doesn't fit in this thread. From my small amount of time on this site it seems like many feel the exact opposite of this.
    Jeff Coffin doesn't provide for this band what Roi did. Just because Jeff may be a more technical sax player outside of this band, Roi's style fit DMB perfectly. Jeff doesn't give dmb what Roi did. I'll never understand these fans. Maybe they came later in the game and dmb 2.0 is what brought them in -but it doesn't make sense to me.

    Re: Unpopular DMB Opinions

    I have never (nor would I ever do) done any of these things:

    - Gone to get any concession of any kind while the band was playing
    - Sat down during a show to protest
    - Gone to the bathroom during a show ... they could play Everybody Wake Up and I would stand there, dancing, while my bladder exploded on the person in front of me.

    Boyd may have come into the band originally for one song, but he very quickly became one of the main draws. The absence of his violin is one of the big things that irks me about Stand Up, in fact. They took him out of the palette, and it killed the vibe.

    Every one of their albums is good, with stand up being the exception. The big 3 of course are great.

    The Stone and Pig are nowhere close to overrated, LITHOG on the other hand...

    LITHOG should only be like 8 min, 2 min longer than the studio

    I think it is because I am younger and my first show was 2010 and I have seen it 4 times (including the AC Caravan) but I did love Stanley Jordan's solo I saw in Hartford Friday but I like the album version still

    ...but I don't think I've seen too much hate for this song.

    There are also a few songs that do nothing for me that people drool over, mainly Captain and Raven. And I'll Back You Up. If it wasn't off the Big 3 I don't think it'd be as loved.

    I like a few songs that get a lot of hate- like Angel, Old Dirt Hill and Funny the Way it Is.

    Jimi Thing is one of my favorite live songs. I understand why most on here hate it and I respect that, but every time it starts at a show I'm at I smile.

    Love them or hate them, Tim Reynolds and Jeff Coffin need to not be in the band anymore.

    Also, Big Whiskey is not their best album. At all. By a long shot. And it will never be on the same level as the big 3.

    Saying BW is not DMB's best album is definitely not an unpopular opinion...
