DCI Denton/DCI North Texas/Red River Thunder Review
I will only be talking about corps that have shown change from years past or really lit up to me
Spirit of Atlanta: They through a big curve ball at me man. I didn't expect that. It was loud. Their rips were perfectly timed and done. I believe they deserve the score they got.
Phantom Regiment: They looked menacing at the beginning. It was quite intimidating. Loved the beginning, but honestly the rest was typical. I didn't see anything shout out to me. I mean, don't get me wrong it was a wonderful show. It just didn't shine to me. I also think their score was well deserved.
Cadets: I loved how the show begins with a bang. It made me happy. The vocalist did a great job at the National Anthem and for their show. But, nothing will top Carolina Crown's 2012 vocalist. Also, well done mellos.
Cavaliers: My new favorite corp. Oh my god. The funny and slightly inappropriate joke was perfect. The show was great, I really think they got first in general effect. It was great. Sadly, for me, I was in section BB. The section less than 8 feet from the speaker. It was also the loudest performance of the night and I have no ear drums now. Oh dear. Well done Cavies. By the way, spinning the quads on the turning things was a great idea.
Bluecoats: The beginning was wonderful. But, the rest of it didn't really excite me. I think people have fallen bandwagon to the corp that they have brain washed themselves into not listening for other corps. Like I said with Phantom, don't get me wrong they were great. But, I expected more because of the hype. Now, trumpets need a breather. That is all I have to say about that.
Vanguard: You deserve first place. That is for sure. I mean, the danger factor really helped with the intensity they were going for. By all means the show wasn't meant to be like Phantoms, but it had a sense of fear and danger in it. Great job on spinning on the wheel thing and not getting dizzy dude. That is talent. Well done and well deserves first place
