My favorite part was the Gabriel song.  

I had never heard it, and it ended up being one of those pieces that I like even better arranged for brass.  When they all play the unison octaves with the 5 note motif leading up to the fff chord, just wow.  Powerful. 

And for those who missed the amazing baritone duet during the ballad, just wait until you hear it in post production.  It was one of the great duets in DCI history for me.  Wow.

The block feature on this board is great for avoiding crazies, but they still show up in quoted posts, unfortunately. 

It's pretty funny to see them showing what they're good at from time to time, though, so thanks Guardling.  

What else is great about SCV's show musically?  Intonation was truly great, and I don't think it should be underestimated.  Lots of tuning probles this year for top corps, and SCV really stood out in that way for me.

As a person who has never taken a music theory class and majored in political science with a minor in legal philosophy and has an MPA, i found the show to be fantastic both musically and visually. I noticed new things each time i watched, which was only a few times. I did like it more the more i watched it... Because it was a pretty darn good show. I think i could watch it without sound and be entertained by the visuals and staging, same with just listening to the music. Both sides of the production communicate such energy, and they work so well together. I think its the most complete show I've seen since Crown E=MC2
