More country than some of the other albums. It’s okay, but nothing really grabs me. Yeah, 2 listens and no thoughts beyond that.
Last 2 tracks were bonus tracks. I could kind of tell. This album is noisier and harder than previous albums. It kind of wears you down after a while. Pitchfork upgraded it from a 6.1 to a 8.3 for the reissue. That’s funny. Anyway, there’s a reason I’ve only listened to this one a handful of times. It doesn’t grab me.
Nothing to hate about this show. “Eyes of the World” is better with 2 drummers. It’s all pretty decent, but it really doesn’t grab me. Doesn’t include my favorite songs of the era also. Listening to it again wouldn’t be a mistake, but when there’s Dick’s Picks 33 out there….
The intro makes this seem more promising than it actually is. It’s closer to Heavy Rocks than anything else I’ve listened to so far. The last song was kind of cool. Nothing on here is bad. I just wouldn’t put it up there with Amplifier Worship which I think is kind of brilliant.
Supposedly this is their big masterpiece. I like it okay, but I’m not sure if any of it grabs me. Inoffensive country rock. Nothing stuck out. The last track is a dull instrumental. I might have preferred the first 2. I’ll keep listening I guess.
First 2 discs of the set. Has every song from the show except “It’s All Over Now.” Pretty good set. “Sugar Magnolia” has a cool ending. There’s also a cool jam that leads into the rest of “St. Stephen.”
Decent enough show. Long “Slipknot!” jam with a drum solo in the middle. “Supplication” is played in the middle of “Playing in the band which is weird and different. It’s 2 hours and 40 minutes. A good pick for a single 1976 show.
