Live / DeadGrateful Dead
Fuck me what a slog. I tried to imagine myself on a lawn at a music festival, with a little half tab deep inside me, and I decided I'd only hate it more. The one song that connected with me was 'Death Have No Mercy'. It's hard to imagine anyone in a Grateful Dead audience enjoying this more than the band themselves, who for the majority of this are off on their own tangents with sprawling guitar solos and out-of-time drums. I straight up don't understand how this can be referred to as psychedelic, it doesn't leave any space to go on your own journey. 1.5/5 for the sporadic moments on this album where it all comes together and does create a little piece of magic.
