A lot of them would write this as a dream set.

I got into it hard with the fam last night just for saying it was Lazy. They're the worst and are the reason why the band feels encouraged to not give a shit.

DDTW: -1
Stand Up: 0 (gonna give it a neutral since its been forever)
DYR: 1
Seven: -1
Crash Into Me: 1
Canít Stop : 0
Sledgehammer: -1
Here On Out: -1
41: 0
TGIY: 0
Bayou: 1
Mercy: -1
Satellite: -1
DreamGirl: -1
Minarets: 1
Everyday: 0
YMDT: -1
PNP/Rapunzel: 0
You And Me: -1
Ants: -1

Total: -6

The high points weren't high enough, Bayou is only a 1 because I've just reached the Stockholm Syndrome point with it, Minarets is the only song I would have been outright stoked to get.

Fucking awful setlist no matter how you slice it. Bad flow, terrible setlist, only bone that got thrown to the hardcores has been around a bunch lately (not a bad thing just a comment).

I'm so fucking glad I didn't waste the $$ or time on UK/Paris.

I really don't care for that ants game. I don't think it does what it's "supposed" to do. Or maybe I don't understand it.

Any way, this set sucks so badly. C'mon Dave.

This is easily the worst setlist they've played in the last decade. Incredible.

If you had told me a few years back they would kick Boyd out, work with Mark Batson again, and start bringing back all the Stand Up songs, I'd have said you were crazy.

The Stand Up songs started out really heavy in the beginning on '18 and then tapered off towards the end.

I think we'll be okay once they are back in the States.

I thought of it like this:

-1 = god dammit
0 = alright
1 =

Same here, always looked at it that way. In that case:

DDTW: 0
Stand Up: 1 (liked the 2018 version, wouldn't mind catching it)
DYR: 1
Seven: 0
Crash Into Me: 0
Canít Stop : -1 (only negative because of preceding two songs)
Sledgehammer: 1
Here On Out: 0
41: 1
TGIY: 0
Bayou: -1
Mercy: 0
Satellite: -1
DreamGirl: 0 (rarity's sake, first time with Buddy)
Minarets: 1
Everyday: 0
YMDT: 0
PNP/Rapunzel: 0
You And Me: -1
Ants: 0

Final score of 1.

Well then...

DDTW: 0
Stand Up: -1
DYR: 0
Seven: -1
Crash Into Me: 0
Can’t Stop : -1
Sledgehammer: 0
Here On Out: 0
41: 0
TGIY: 0
Bayou: -1
Mercy: 0
Satellite: -1 (due to placement)
DreamGirl: -1
Minarets: 1
Everyday: -1
YMDT: 0
PNP/Rapunzel: 0
You And Me: -1
Ants: 1

-6 is the best you can do with the songs as laid out. I mean, the only song to get excited about is in the 15 hole. Basic bitch opener (even though it is a great song). And by the time Rapunzel and Ants come along you are already on suicide watch. This set is just the fucking worst.

That rating system should go from -2 to +2 for extreme turds and gems.

Agreed. I don't like that if they play WWYS and I give it +1, then Last Stop, my +1 is worth the same thing. Doesn't make sense.

For comparison purposes, take a look at the recent LT 6.8.97 set..taking into account the songs would be played as 3.0 versions with the current lineup.

One Sweet World: -1
BOWA: 1
Jimi: 0
Crash: 0
LIOG: 1
Seek Up: 1
Two Step: 1
41: 1
Leave Me Praying: 1
Say Goodbye: 1
Ants: 1
Billies: 1
LLD: 1
SMTS: 1
Too Much: 1
DIDO: 1

Total score: 12. Yeah. Iím not even sure a set with a score that high can even happen in todayís DMB. And thatís why this game is actually a really great accurate representation.

And DDTW is so played out by this point it has to be considered a negative IMO. Same with a few other classics that have just been played to death. To that point, average songs that rarely pop out might get a +1 just for the novelty. Guess it depends if you're grading on setlist creativity and rarity or pure song quality. If I'm grading how I'd feel in person during the show, it'd be on setlist creativity.

You could do that expand it to 2, but the idea is that LS is the actual 1 and WWYS only counts as a 0 if that’s the case. 0 doesn’t mean bad, just means not the extremely awesome songs.

I grade by how I felt/would feel at the show.

I dunno, I'm capable of contentment (ie: SMTS, Squirm, DDTW, Come on Come On, Jimi, Billies, etc), excitement (ie: WWYS, #41, Crush, Warehouse, Nancies, etc), and freakout (ie: Last Stop, KTK, Raven, Cortez, etc). That would be 0, 1, and 2 for me.

And I could do the same in the opposite direction too. "Bleh" would be -1 (ie: You & Me, Everyday, Satellite, etc) and "UUUGHH!!" would be -2 (ie: Sister).

To me those are 0s. DDTW isnít a song Iím upset to hear at a show, but Iím not thrilled. Therefore itís neutral 0. I want to kill someone when Mercy is played, therefore itís a -1.
