Before the schedule was released I thought the lineup could use more, but now that it's out I'm very happy with the lineup. Throughout the whole weekend I'll have something to see with only two or three acts that I'll miss that really mean a lot to me.

last years schedule made me less excited about the lineup bc all the things i wanted to see conflicted, this years makes me more excited because pretty much everything i want to see is at separate times
John: We don't even understand our own music Spider: It doesn't, does it matter whether we understand it? At least it'll give us . . . strength John: I know but maybe we could get into it more if we understood it
seeing it all laid out in schedule form made it even more 'meh' than before.
As a disclaimer, I think that 2006 was the best Roo lineup ever, so that always weighs on how I feel about a given year's lineup. But I have to agree with OP and this above statement. IMO, the schedule sort of exposed how weak this year's lineup is compared with some previous years. However, there's still no other fest I'd rather go to this year. I'll be plenty entertained.
I liked the the line-up from the get-go, and would have given it about a 7.5 if I had to judge. The sheer perfection of the line-up in terms of balance at night, and good acts throughout the day bumps it up to an 8.9. I'd give it a 9 if it werent for the Key/Chromeo/Bassnectar cluster-quack.
