sure we tend to ramble, but that was a 3 page off topic tangent on crack and doses for breakfast?

Hey, I don't know anything. Please help.

Atlanta has some cool parts but it can't match the melodious transcendence of the Denver version.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I'll vote Denver, its jam segments being slightly more interesting to me.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

I love the Lakewood summer vibe and this was much harder for me than it seemed to be for others (or than the score would suggest). But Denver is just relentless and much more cohesive. And it's complete; they don't seem to be searching for what's next, it just flows naturally and wraps up when it's supposed to. 20 mins fly by, but you don't at all feel like you got ripped off by a "masseuse" who advertises on Craigslist but then gets all pissy when you ask for a little help at the end (I wasn't the one doing all the assplay for an hour, lady!!). Or so I've heard...

Anyway, Denver by a mile
