2008 was one of the best and worst years so it stands alone in this bizarre category of tremendous joy and hope coinciding with deep sadness and reflection.

I don't care about the music when it comes to this question. It's 2008 without a close contender for me.

Yep. That was my first thought.

Agreed. They have certainly sounded worse in later years, but this was the year that hit me hardest, and like you say, itís when the DMB that could do no wrong up to 2000 began to change.

Hard to argue with this perspective, either

I gotta go with 2005. 2001 is close though.

When I posted the thread I was thinking along the lines of setlist and performances

For me, it’s 2014-2015. I’ve never been less interested in DMB than I was then.

That simply canít be said for 2005, when the sets were almost universally shit and the band sounded awful playing most of them.

EDIT: 2001 had the additional issue of the open conflict and bad feelings between the band and the fans. That was not fun.
Yeah I agree about 2001 being really fucking shitty when it comes to the bands direction. If you think about it, they lost a whole lot of the fanbase after that tour. They went from playing huge football stadiums in 2001, to just playing basketball arenas and ampatheatre's only in 2002. The band was still big (certainly bigger then now) but I feel like a chunk of the fan base was lost. Or maybe they just didn't want to play football stadiums anymore IDK.

As far as sound... in 2001 they were still damn good

I know this gets brought up all the time, but how big of a relief was You Never Know after 2001? We all needed that, desperately.

Fucking two sets was terrible. Although, I think 2015 was better then 2014 because the sets had more variety

2007 was the most bored I was at shows and the most bored I saw the band on stage. My least favorite year. 2001 is a close 2nd

2001 was the "beginning of the end"

Oh you liked how we were playing in 02, 03, and 04? I bet you can't wait for our new album in 2005 after we roadtested a bunch of songs the year before. 2005 will be great.

2005 was abysmal. I almost get the sense that #34 returned that year as a bone to throw to the die-hards.

RCA is also a reason why DMB didn't play any stadium shows in 2002. You'd figure they'd scale it back to like playing 1 or 2 Giants Stadium shows because of the lack of full and quick sell-outs of all those stadium gigs in '01, but RCA pulled a lot of road money from DMB at that time so the band/management decided to scrap Stadium gigs altogether, which meant not even a single Giants Stadium show, which imo, would have most certainly sold out.

There was definitely a strain on the relationship with label and band for those few years '00 - '02.

I tend to agree overall. But the band was still playing incredibly well in '01. I'd say 2009 was the year that changed the them the most to me. Loud and Fast started and the soul was lost. I very rarely listen to any DMB after 2008. I really can't stand the sound - truly a different band. Roi was obviously the soul, we lost Butch, who I LOVED, and once Tim came on full time, we audibly lost Dave's guitar. Major factors to what I loved about them was lost. Then there's Carter. Once Butch was gone, the Carter I loved was gone too. He shrunk his kit and started playing advanced generic rock music.

Hard to pick between 05/06/07.

As much as 2001 was an obviously crappy turning point, Everyday and that tour aren't so bad in comparison to 2005/Stand Up. For example, that 2001 Live Trax is one of my favorite listens.
