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. 

No one takes a bad design and drives it into the ground any better than The Cadets. Not a good run!

That was a really rough run for Cadets.  The show feels more disjointed somehow than it did earlier in the season.  Percussion will carry them as far as they can for days, but yeah, something is ..off.

That was my first time seeing Cadets. I'm not quite sure what to think of that, I'm usually such a fan of the Cadets. Battery was fun to listen to!

Really pulling for Cadets.  The introduction was great. Then is just goes off the rails design and quality. Horn line seemed to really struggle from the top of the ballad to the end.

Is the ballad in a weird key/a key it shouldn't be in? I just don't like the arrangement. Played perfectly it seems it would just leave you flat. Hoping all the best for them.

Seriously .... the battery plays without brass for 70% of the show. The visual support - Ugh, the Brass - I can't remember. It is astounding. Oh, that Tom feature was incredible but the show is NOT balanced.

Cadets definitely did Bridge Over Troubled Water better than Academy
