Show: Russia: Revolution-Evolution: 1917-1991
The Good: Another show the crowd was behind 110% and SCV answered with plenty of energy. I can't tell that the snares are playing matched grip at all, the writing and technique is that good. The Vanguard yell during Russian Christmas Music had to be THE loudest ever and sent chills through me.
The Bad: I feel there's a dropoff in energy before the final push of RCM. It's been there in every recording I listened to so I can't tell if it was written that way or if the corps had endurance issues.
The Ugly: The drill was VERY dirty and one of the reasons SCV placed as low as it did.
Overview: It's actually hard to write a full review for this show because I'm too drawn into the performance, even during a streaming audio recording which doesn't do justice to how good this show was. 8th place my butt.
2006 Auditions: November 25-27
