I thought Albany 2/1 was a fire show but nobody else did, so naturally I went crazy and posted a new SOTY thread to showcase it

89 shows in 17 years is less than ten a year. that's some serious noob shit. get bent

#teamhivemind

Pretty good for someone who sees lost of his shows in the WC. Better than hitting 200 in 3 years like Albert Boss. In it for the long hall, not the show count.

I haven't listened to 3/21 yet 'cause I suck but aside from that it's 2/15 for me. I think 1/25 was also pretty hot.

I like 3/22 better than 3/21 tbh. 3/21 Milk is better than anything from 3/22. But almost every song in 3/22 has good improv.  Plunger, Remind Me, Higgins, Puppet, NN, EX1, and JaJunk are all pretty fucking sweet. Nothing mind-blowing and no huge jams....but overall a solid show and more complete than 3/21 imo.

out of the PA>OH run, I definitely think 3/21 is the winner. Just now starting to catch up on 2019 UM so I still need to go back and listen to Jan and Feb shows, besides the ones i attended. Real excited to get through some of the NE shows

I honestly hate the term “complete show.” Why does a show that has two big jams per set and one shorter jam per set not qualify as “complete” to you? Both sets have good beginnings, middles and endings. Same thing goes for when you called 2/16 the most complete show of BK despite basically everyone I know preferring 2/14 and 2/15. Is 2/15 which has 35 minutes of improv in set 2 and 4 jams in set 1 not a complete show? Is 2/14 which has 4 songs with jams that reach close to or past the 10 minute mark, along with other jams, not a complete show?

I just think it’s a dumb and arbitrary term.

I think people use "complete show" as shorthand for shows with a higher-than-normal amount of heavy hitters, or even song selection they prefer.

Shouldn't any discussion about SOTY be a discussion about a show's completeness?? A SOTY shouldn't be so because it has 2 JOTY candidates if it has a bunch of piss break songs too. Completeness is obviously subjective but it should be about having the least amount of moments where you want to skip forward on relisten. Song selection on the non-jammed songs is huge here for me. And obviously a SOTY candidate has to have a lot of really top notch improv

 When I say complete show....I mean complete show. Flow, song selection, improv. It's not just about huge improv/long jams for me. Obviously thats all very subjective. But like crazy Phil said, just because there are 2 JOTY candidates doesn't make it a good show imo. SOTY and JOTY are very different conversations for me

And I still stand by 2.16 being the most complete show (and my fav) of the Brooklyn run. Also like 3.22 more than 3.21. fuck me right?

Improv aside 3/21 is a waaaay more complete show for my tastes. Song selection is way better save for Whistle Kids

Hate Uncommon, hate Silent Type, hate Whistle Kids.

I only hate one song from 3.22 (Higgins) and it got some improv.

Yeah at that point it’s all song preference. Personally 3/21 had a first set made up of some of my favorites that I never see any more (Milk, Prof, Uncommon, B1/2, ALB) whereas 1st set of 3/22 is just one giant long piss break (minus words.) I can stomach Silent Type and Whistle Kids when the rest of the set looks like that

The second set of 3/22 is a butt sandwich for me, and I say this as someone who generally stans for Forks. Can't stand Roctopus or a set-eater standardtown cover like CYHMK.

Oh yeah, I would have been thrilled with that song selection regardless of jams.  Its nice to take a walk down memory lane once in awhile...
