I don't think any of us knows better than the band what order tunes should have been played in. The band were experts in designing effective and functional setlists and no one could have done what they did for thirty years without repeating themselves. Sometimes I skip a random song just to get to the one after it. Doesn't mean I can't stand it. If there truly are tunes that you can't tolerate maybe this music really isn't for you.
There are many songs that I didn't like until I finally understood them. An expansion of musical consciousness, so to speak.
But then again musical understanding may well just be musical temperament, or rather, disposition. I know Bobby and I have very different dispositions--it doesn't make either one of us more correct, but just gives us different ways of approaching music. And therefore these songs might not be called incorrect, or over one's head, but rather that they're outside, to the left or right, of one's head.
