johnnyd @LaserShow - for me, 1.3 was a way more complete and satisfying show. 12.31 SI was kind of a writeoff, even as far as first sets go. It was fun, but no meat, really. And then the show kind of fizzled and lost flow after the Tweezer. Whereas 1.3 SI, had some sauce on the standards, plasma was deep, melt I loved, and 0 was huge. And then the 2nd set alone is comparable to the meat of 12.31 sets 2 and 3. Though the Theme -> Cities is probably the best pair from the whole run. 1.2 2nd set was killer, first set was average-great or maybe just a touch better, to me.

@CameToPlay - wasn't at Dicks, but upon closely listening to all 3 shows, I thought 8.31 was by far the fullest and most complete. Some people will rate a show with one or 2 huge jams higher, others might weigh in a slightly better first set. Definitely as much art as science. No list of standard criteria, other than "how good did you think it was."

@n00b100 - imo, 10.28 was one of the better first sets of the year. Energy was bonkers. But the second set, despite having a couple great components (including of course that monster Hood) didn't really come together for me. I'd have a hard time calling that one a top x 2nd set of the year. Pretty sure I had that show ranked somewhere 10 - 12.
