Long time lurker, new poster, wanting to introduce myself to you all in the ballsiest way possible…with an unpopular opinion.
It didn’t take long as a lurker to learn all about what many consider the UM Mecca, 6.5.08 IC>Synco. As a fan only catching onto UM after 2015, I’ll be honest and say I didn’t get it. I do now, excellent jam, but that isn’t the point. As I dove into this band, I quickly found a segment that melted my face particularly more than anything else, and I always considered it to be my own 6.5.08 IC>Synco. For me, it is 9.4.14 Puppet>Higgins. Moreso the jam in Higgins, but the Puppet jam is baller too.
Holy god damn, that peak in Higgins fucks me up in so many ways, I don’t think I have ever experienced the same level of euphoria before. By far and wide my favorite UM segment, one that I will always go back to no matter how many times I’ve heard it.
Obviously, this is no diss to the IC>Synco…which I have grown to love (you’ll learn that I am more of a post 2011 guy, but never against hearing some pre-2011 masterpieces). I am curious for those of you who might have their own #1 segment of all time that isn’t 6.5.08 IC>Synco, what is it? Or, those of you who are repulsed by my claim, what is your #2?
