RovingReporter OK. So, I have spent months ripping this show apart, note-by-note, trying to figure out what is actually going on.

My answer: I don't have any clue and neither does the band. DWD sounds like a meandering wave of off-key music, yet somehow it keeps me listening even though I hate parts of it.

The Buried Alive is fun and the foggy, damp and odd tone Trey uses, while it doesn't make up for the sloppiness, adds a depth to the tune.

I could write a 2,000-word essay on the show, but I won't. Blah, blah, blah ... Trey's voice is off, the band isn't tight. But if you listen real closely you will hear a band digging deep into those songs. You cannot hit a homerun without a few swings and misses, right?
