Satellite and Jimi Thing are perfect examples of good songs that feel like TERRIBLE ones if placed poorly in a set.

It all boils down to staleness. Those two songs have been two of the most overplayed songs of the past decade, and itís just not exciting to hear them anymore. The rest are just awful songs. I donít know Mercy is a ďgoodĒ song, itís like a funeral dirge.

Dave must’ve had a fun few days leading up to this one. Completely effort free.

I understand for the Europeans it’s fine because they don’t play there a lot and to them some of this stuff will be fresh, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck balls.
This is terrible, but I have seen arguably worse or just as bad.

United Center 12 is the worst Iíve ever seen. Dreadful. Tonight looks awful. No reason for dmb to be this bad.

Yeah thatís awful but thereís still more stuff in that set Iíd enjoy than this one. Nancies, Warehouse, Watchtower. Crush, WWYS this show doesnít even have anything close to that.

Nah there’s no way the summer shows are gonna be this bad, it’s just bad luck of the draw. Even a normal typical festival set is way better than this one. I think it was just bad luck, and Dave just happened to write a god awful set. It happens. The chances we’ll see something like this again is slim I’d say.

I think the more scary thing is that he might have put effort into it. I never think the bad setlist writing is due to lack of effort honestly, I think itís more that

A) Dave likes to play a lot of songs we donít like that much
B) Tends to stick with stuff thatís been rehearsed recently and he knows everyone is comfortable with.

I donít think itís because he writes it up right before they hit the stage, if anything that might help the sets be more interesting than they are now

Forget who came with this system or where itís frkm. Might be an AM.org thing unfortunately but I do think itís a good way to compare setlists. For every song you hate/disklike in a show, itís a -1, for every song that is neutral to you is a 0 and a song that you like and is awesome gets a 1.

Add up the score at the end and you get your personal score on how good the setlist is. Itíll be different for most but I bet if we took the score on this show, itíd be low as hell for most.

DDTW: 0
Stand Up: -1
DYR: 0
Seven: -1
Crash Into Me: 0
Canít Stop : -1
Sledgehammer: 0
Here On Out: -1
41: 1
TGIY: -1
Bayou: -1
Mercy: -1
Satellite: 0
DreamGirl: -1
Minarets: 1
Everyday: 0
YMDT: -1
PNP/Rapunzel: 1
You And Me: -1
Ants: 1

Total: -6......pretty bad.

They played Crash, Here on Out, Dreamgirl, TGIY, Mercy, Satellite and You & Me in the same show.

That is absolutely unbelievable.

At least Crash is a great song. And Satellite as well to a lesser degree. If any of the rest were never played again I would miss none of them.
