then you're missing the whole point of the meaning of "average". for something to be great, there has to be something that isn't. dave himself says that in JTR. and not everything is great or bad, so the middle, or what is most likely to happen, is average.
LT14 is a great version of rapunzel because they do things better in that version than in most. the trainwreck is a bad version of rapunzel. everything else has to fall somewhere in between. "average" is what normally happens, referred to as "standard" around these parts.
two step in the rain is nothing special musically, especially compared to a two step like 6.27.08. while two step in general is a great song, relative to itself, giants stadium, minus the storm, was nothing to write home about.
