Split, 2010 versions have been pretty much unlistenable.

This could end up being the best(or worst) execution style EVAR!!!!

You shall be sentenced to "death by Whale Call"   :-o

 :wink:

I think that would be deemed a 'cruel and unusual punishment'.

A hard call.

I almost voted for Gin even though it has seen some (relatively) strong versions this go-'round, but considering what a monstrous and consistent jam vehicle it was for years, its comparative impotence has nevertheless been something of a personal disappointment for me.

I agree that Reba or Hood might be the top contenders for this "prize"...

You guys are COMPLETELY MAD.

I honestly think the whale call works better in SOAM jams than anything else.  Don't get me wrong, I wish SOAM jams could be what they used to be, but I am not opposed to the direction they are trying to take it.  I get it.  Can't say they have completely nailed one yet in 3.0, but I really liked both the Red Rocks and Camden version from this year.

Falling apart, chaotic, disastrous, wild, mind bending, "is this even music?" sort of feel.  I dig it.  Tension, tension, teeennssiiiooon.....release?....nope.... moooorreee...teeeennssiiioooonnnnn......  :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

Rebas and Hoods suffer most.  Whales do NOT belong in those jams....

They played Red Rocks this year?

Also, the version from 6/25 is donkey balls.

Seeing as how the best 3.0 show was played right here in the NW I don't think I have anything to be jealous about.   :samurai:

Damn it.

I don't know that I can argue differently.

I might have had more fun at 1-2 shows this summer, but the Gorge was really something else....

It only works when it works, if you know what I'm saying. The problem is, the whale usually doesn't work. So it doesn't work.
