I wonder if the other two nights will eventually come out.

Listened to BTCS straight through for the first time in a couple years last week.

I remember when I started listening to DMB, people said they were better live, but this album is damn good from the studio.

I honestly believe it's a perfect album. Even Stay fits so nicely in that 5 spot. It's flawless.

To this day, it's my favourite album of all time. And I'm not intending to be ignorant, I consider myself someone with a very solid knowledge of music. BTCS is prefect.

Isn’t it funny though that our favorite DMB album also gave us our least favorite guests in the Lovely Ladies?

Honestly... I don't hate 'em. They're often not used properly, but I gotta say, when I'm at a show and they're out there for Stay, it's always such a highlight.

Thereís absolutely no question about it. Steve Lillywhite is one of the best known and most highly respected producers in the business, and even if you put it up against the rest of his work, itís easily one of his best jobs. Every part of that project was operating at the absolute peak of their ability.

Agree 100%. It's a masterpiece, and the first two albums were really damn good also so that speaks to how good BTCS really is. Honestly, I think LWS would be right up there with the Big 3 if it was finished. The songs on that album are so good also.

I have always found it a testament to just how firggin' phenomenal BTCS is that it is universally considered their best album. You have the big 3, but streets is unquestionable their best. Whether it is SLW, people on this site, or Batson the other day. It is never even a question.

Conversely, I think this is why the LWS exploding hurt so bad. Especially with what we have. You had an honest chance to give it a run for its money.

I do absolutely think it would have had a chance to give it a run for its money. Everything really felt like the band was on a roll song writing, etc. and then it all just exploded.

Big Whiskey

I still think this is a pretty diverse sounding album, like a carnival of sorts. Would it have been different with Roi? Probably. More Boyd involvement? Hopefully. But they really tried with this one. And it's all I ask of them.

I think I'd rank Big Whiskey above Away from the World. At least I find myself listening to it more often straight through. AftW is definitely the better produced effort, but I prefer BW's sound. I think there's a difference, subtle as it may be. Cavallo captured the energy of the band whereas Lillywhite gets the musicianship.

Couldn't agree more. AFTW "sounds" more like DMB and like the old school records, but the songwriting is far superior on Big Whiskey, it's not close imo. There's some bad ones on that album too, but overall I think it's more solid, and definitely way more listenable. AFTW isn't an album I can listen to all the way through. I only did that once when it came out, now I just go to select tracks. I listened to Big Whiskey start of finish well over 10 times for sure. The songs have more life to them and they are more interesting and dyanmic to me. If you took the best songs off of BW and the best ones off of AFTW, you'd have a great album that would fall right behind Busted Stuff or maybe even equal it. People rank albums objectivley (or try to) but for me, if I can't stand to listen to it from start to finish multiple times then it's not a good album to me.

greykitkat36 03-11-2018 09:58 PM

I think Big Whiskey sounds like how 3.0 DMB is supposed to sound, where as AFTW was the band trying to sound like they used to, and it kind of came off that way to me. I always say, they're not the same band anymore, and they shouldn't feel the need to be. There's a lot about 3.0 I don't like, but I've really embraced it at this point. If they fine tune things (less Rashawn squealing, more Jeff, more subtle Tim, Less loud Carter) it would be miles better. I'd much rather them move in a specifc direction than try to be a shell of what they used to be.

I mean as awesome as BTCS, it doesn't sound at all like they do live. But I don't mind that. The studio is different, and should be.

Right behind or equal to BS? Stop.

11/5/98 - The Last Stop

Unless Tim is using a strange effect in here, it sounds like LeRoi is playing the flute in places. Either way, I like it.
