This percussion writing is adding so much to this show. It's an incredibly musical drum book, as opposed to some of the ram fests we've seen today.

This^^^^

 

Yes, ram fests have been had by a bunch so far. The over doing of the wackaty wackaty isn’t over I’m afraid.

Some very quick thoughts, I'll do a more extensive review when I get back Tuesday after seeing some shows a 2nd time in Mesquite up high.  For reference I was row 6 112, so blast zone right on the 50.

Friends, can we all agree that Blue Knights are just a joy to watch this season?

So now we have to have rings to have an opinion?  What a load of crap. 

Blue Knight, I  FREAKIN LOVE  IT!!!  Surprised how dirty the brass drill is. Give dat vis team some field time.

Blue Knights: 
 
THAT OPENING HIT!!!
 
I love the direction that they’ve taken this year, when compared to the last. Their direction in their design always feels so unique, fresh, and needed. Blue Knights are the best drum corps at making me feel intense emotion at points that aren’t overly emotive, but just have phenomenal music writing. They create such a wonderful effect. I have no idea what the show is about, but I’m still in love with it. 
 
I feel like they could be doing more visually throughout the show, but I can at least say that the visuals match what they’re doing musically. I usually love mirror props, but they feel mostly like afterthoughts. I just don’t feel like I get any sort of color palate in the beginning of the show and I just want more.
 
Overall, I love the show. I always feel like the Blue Knights design team is under appreciated. I wonder what it would look like to have a Blue Knights design team with a Carolina Crown instructional team? That would be a joy to watch!

I caught my first video view of Blue Stars.

Those kids are working Hard AF.

The guard book is  ridiculous and probably a beast to rehearse.  🙌

Blue Stars are amazing this year, even if I don’t particularly love this show.

i do wonder if people were quite as vocal when saucedo completely ripped off cindy mctee in 2000, though. 

I remember hearing that he did, but I think people are more familiar with Equus (Eric Whitacre in general) and can easily spot the similarity.
