They now have just as many good years as bad years. Sigh.

I would consider 2014 a far distant third to 2001 and 2005. And still, you can find some bright spots in each. I never considered 2006, 2007 or 2011 to be all that bad. Perhaps I was focused on the great new songs & rare bustouts instead?

I actually like them, but aren't they Dave making vocal "ticks" with his mouth?

Yeah, there are some frustrating production details, but all in all, the songs hold up.

there's still a few songs on this album that i just can't fucking tolerate. for example, i think Grey Blue Eyes is worse than anything on Stand Up. but i've got a copy burned to disc that is just

Dodo
So Damn Lucky
Gravedigger (acoustic)
Some Devil
Trouble
Save Me
Stay or Leave
Oh
Baby
Up and Away
Too High

and i think this is what this album should have been trimmed down to, without question.

Yeah, An' Another Thing and Grey Blue Eyes still don't do anything for me. And did the album really need two Gravediggers? Cigarette Lit didn't fit, but that did? I guess we best be grateful one didn't have Willie.

I like those effects. Adds to the warm ambiance.

Still can't believe DMB hasn't done Dodo or Too High.

Trouble is alright

GBE shouldve easily been replaced but Cig Lit, Baby is stupid, and the two gravediggers are horribly redundant, especially given all the solo performances.

Great album - some weird weird choices tho

Needs to happen eventually. Both of those were so great D&F.

Wasnt one of his reasons for going solo that the new tunes didn't fit the DMB sound? He can't just be going around playing all of those tunes with DMB!
