I'll play along....My ranking are as follows, not to be ranked technically, but from within my enjoyment

1. Bluecoats 2016 - Down Side Up

2. Carolina Crown 2013 - e=mc2

3. Phantom Regiment 2008 Spartacus

4. SCV 2018 - Babylon

5. Cadets 2011 - Between Angels & Demons

 

I also sit here thinking maybe I should rearrange the order? Did I really like that show more than this show? Hard to rank 5 former gold medal shows.....but I'll stick with the first way they came to me when I read your post!!

What’s weird is, I would put all of them among my favorite shows of all time. And they are all very different.

I’ll tell you what else is weird. That perhaps the greatest Cadets show ever was just 8 years ago. And Phantom just 11. Scary.

2011 Phantom Regiment.......oh boy.  That opener.  That ballad.  That closer.  Some of my favorite beautiful moments in the activity come from that show.

I will rank them,  but since I never got to see Babylon live it doesn't do so well in the rankings

1. Down side Up

2. Spartacus

3. Angels and Demons

4. Babylon

5. E=MC^2

2015 - Bluecoats (once because of penalty), The Cadets (five times), and Carolina Crown (three times).

2018 - Bluecoats (once) and Santa Clara Vanguard (fourteen times).  

2019 - Santa Clara Vanguard (four times) and Bluecoats (seven times).  

you should note one of Cadets 2015 wins over BD was also due to the Penalty.

As much as I love and respect Down Side Up, I think Angels & Demons may be the best drum corps show ever put on a football field.

Down Side Up was probably the dirtiest show on finals night out of those 5 shows with Spartacus being a close 2nd so that's why I have them low in my rankings.

 

And agree with you on Angels and Demons!

Warm-up violation at Prelims. BD ended up finishing 4th that night when they would have finished 2nd due to the Cadets and Bluecoats being very close behind.
