  1. BD by a large margin. Fantastic show. The Cavaliers Blue Knights Crown for a change. Love the part right before the ballad and everything after it. Phantom occasionally
  2. All time shows: Blue Devils

    Favorites: 2017 Metamorph (everything about this show is amazing; nothing else compared) 2008 Constantly Risking Absurdity (had no idea where that show was going to take me and I enjoyed every step of the journey; should have won by a decent margin) 2012 Cabaret Voltaire (like 2008, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey; on my weekly playlist) 2010 Through a Glass Darkly (masterpiece in my opinion) 2007 Winged Victory (love the intensity of the first part, the slow intensity that builds the middle right to the triumphant ending) 2004 SummerTrain Blues MIX (just great music and played with such confidence and bravura; still play it weekly) 2016 As Dreams are Made On (love the ominous opener) 2003 Phenomenon of Cool (didn’t like it visually at first but the whole show has grown on me as my musical tastes matured) 2015 Ink (very creative; love the intro and wolf section the most; ballad was good also) Just OK: 2006 The Godfather, Part BLUE (found it musically repetitive) Haven’t looked into their older catalog as much; gotta get on that. Their recent shows have made me a big fan now that I’ve grown to appreciate what they do.
  3. Cadets 2018

    From what I’ve read so far I am quite excited for this year’s edition of The Cadets.

    Funny, I consider the part after the ballad the best part of the Crown’s show, even though I still don’t understand what the show is about, nor do I care to understand anymore. I thought the ballad was lacking/cheesy and the part before decent, though I really liked the parts where hints of the post-ballad material were breaking through. While I am not particularly fond of Crown shows, this one was one of the better ones for me, along with Common Good and In.trance.it I guess different strokes for different folks, as always.

    Well done, BD and SCV. Your shows are amazing and remind me why I love drum corps. BD, you bring me to tears with that beautiful ballad; to me your show is the best thing I have seen in a long while! Everything is top notch! Thank you Cavaliers for a fun show. I enjoyed it. Cadets, what a challenging show. I'm not religious but I love the works of Bernstein and I appreciate what you are doing this year. Congrats to all the other corps. What a season!
  6. Whoops. Don't know how I even got in this thread... Never mind.
  7. I have been waiting impatiently to see the show since the premier. Hopefully I will get to see Mars in Jupiter on Monday. (sorry for being so punny)
  8. From the audio I have heard, by the time the corps proper comes in at full volume they are the ones carrying the melody (specifically the chorus of the song, as the full melody was introduced by the trumpet soloist at the very beginning of the song). By this time the soloists' contributions are ornamental. And awesome, as is the whole piece, and the whole show. I think the design is intentional.
  9. Every time there the solos are different. I love this!

    I thought it was the best show on the field last night. The show was fast paced and exciting. The music book was great and I enjoyed the Mars/My Way ending, thought I read that it is not the final version, of course. I especially loved the Close Encounters section. Very intricate. Guard is very very good. Waiting to see how the show develops further and how the brass grows into that music book.

    Totally unqualified opinion, but I think the brass book is awesome. I was scared that it was going to be too.....Bluecoatsy (O Superman had me worried the most) But it is nice and complex and it goes somewhere. When the players get more comfortable with the show and clean up and project this will be something special. I wanted to see where the ballad was going... Really intriguing setup. Of the books I've heard so far, this one and the Blue Devils' amazing book pull me in the most. The guard and percussion is very enjoyable. I'm sure they will clean up the electronics and improve the script. Good job! Looking forward to the rest of the show!
  15. I'm a little upset that they wasted a lot of time on fluff instead of focusing on the 2 shows and The Cavaliers were the victims of that choice. That being said, FloMarching did a great job with the video and audio aspect and I will subscribe.
