The Complete Weekend on The Rocks had some great stuff on it

i haven't listned to some tracks off of this in a long time and it gets a little overlooked now imo. yeah it had a lot of stand up but the band was firing on all cylinders that year and i've been really diggin' typical, exodus, too much (9-12), and the stone from these shows. discuss?

it's the same with anything the band has done that is sub-par of what we expect of them... at the end of the day, it's still decent-to-pretty-damn-good

SEE: FOLSOM


it was so fucking cool of them to go back and play there after 10 years.

interesting to hear that they apparently weren't feeling it around that time though.

in terms of being tight, 2005 was one of their best years

2005 was when I *really* started to appreciate Carter. Maybe it was the wrist strap that held him back in 2004, but it seems like he really stepped it up that year. Boyd was great too. Butch started to take a more prominent role...it also seemed like he was louder in the mix

WOTR was really the pinnacle of 2005. I remember some MP3s being posted of the first night and I was really blown away by some of the performances. They were playing everything so fast and awesome.

They weren't upbeat enough back then, IMO. They sounded slow and tired to me (at least most of the time). But I'm glad you like it. I never listen to it.

folsom is fucking terrible except for bartender and the encore. that show is under-par all the way. taking away the majority of the SU tunes, the classics were played really well and resulted in a lot of highlights from the release of those four RR shows

exactly. all of the songs that were even a little upbeat were played fast and with a ton of energy. i'm a sucker for quick tempos.

More '05 in general, but I don't recall Red Rocks sounding much different. Admittedly, it's been a while since I've listened to it, but I was sort of bored by it.

over the original 3 night stand, they really didn't repeat much, bayou x3 and dream girl x2--we got a lot of good stuff over the three nights--the 4th night was a bonus all around, so there's not much to complain about..Exodus was a treat..the scariest part of that though was that the setlist said Exodus/Stand Up, haha.

Go back and listen to Hello Again from RR '05....it was crazy fast. I'm not too sure about everything else, except maybe Bayou...but I remember that HA being too fast for my tastes.

Pretty uninspired year, even playing RR. I agree with Spence that there definitely were some great performances but overall, listening to the shows all the way through, back-to-back, it just doesn't translate at all. RR '05, if anything, was an experience for everyone who went, and they did get some really fun and great performances, but those shows were not representative of the band "firing in all cylinders".

solid response if you only look at the setlist



regarding rr '05... it was like they were on crack, which was AWESOME. SEE: HELLO AGAIN. i wish they'd play classics like that again (crush, bowa, for example)

huh? you could say the exact same thing for these red rocks shows. i'm completely disregarding the majority of the SU tunes when i praise this. i skip most of those songs and have deleted the repeats completely. half of folsom is classics and even those for the most part aren't played very well and are slow and uninspired. besides bartender and the encore. and maybe so right

For the record, I do quite often listen to this performance of Everybody Wake Up, which I would love to see the band try again.

Meh, right now I'm listening to BOWA and there are a lot of parts that sound empty. It's still great - it's BOWA - but there are many better, more upbeat versions.

The #41 also has a lot of Rashawn ear piercing. Eek. Also, Dave's voice on SMTS is pretty bad.

The Stone and Typical are nice though.
