Okay I finished listening to neilsgov's list. If I had to summarize it in one sentence I would say that the flow was almost impeccable throughout even though I was not fond of all the song selections. Many of the tracks sounded perfect next to one another, as if they were created only to be placed there.

New stuff I found really interesting: Trentemöller's Take Me Into Your Skin.

tried downloading joey's twice, but i cannot for the life of me figure out where the file goes when it comes from something uploaded to mega. it's not in the folder where all my downloads go, and searches for it bring up nothing. i also made sure i was downloading it rather than whatever (presumably) viruses all these sites scatter downloads for across their pages in addition to the one that holds the actual file. speaking of which, sendspace might be the worst offender.

Thanks for the comments on my list. I'm glad most people think the flow's good.

I'm going to have a lot of catching up to do in about a week. I'm on holiday and it didn't really work out with putting the playlists on my phone so I'll have to wait until I'm home to listen to more. Luckily I'll have all the time in the world then.

That amatorski through mogwai stretch on niels' list is exactly what I've been looking for as far as music for listening to at night at work while reading. I'm sure that you the last thing you expect me to say is I really enjoyed that part of the playlist, but I did.

Gump's Volume I was a blast. As for Volume II, I discovered a couple of songs I didn't know and like quite a bit, so thanks

Haha. Too bad he's going to absolutely despise my list. I think you all will.

Niels, enjoyed how nice and chill your list was. Really had a nice flow going for the most part, a few strange transitions aside (Is it ever possible to move out of "When You Sleep"?)

A few songs I could have done without, especially the Haxan Cloak track, but there were a few bands I didn't know (Amatorski, dEUS) that I really enjoyed.

So I've been kinda heaps lax on this, but I'm listening to Tourist's right now and enjoying it a lot. Good variety, as expected from your prior lists - perhaps could use a little more focus and the hip-hop section was unfortunately brief, but the song choices were all great. Also the list is sorta named after my ultra favourite song ever, so that doesn't hurt matters. The Black Keys > Cults transition was a bit nutty but this Cults song is good stuff. Never checked them out before. Oh hey, Plotus Laza

Speaking of lists full of '12 songs, my list is painfully young. There are three songs from the seventies for some reason and the rest is all from the last decade. I nauseate myself. Hopefully the deja vu isn't too bad. God bless.

Okay, just got through gump's. I felt it had an extremely strong start and finish. Nightcall through All to All was brilliantly paced. Same with Eleanor to One Sunday Morning. The transition from Franz to Friedberger was so smooth, it felt like the former could have been a long introduction to the same song.

In terms of negatives, I wasn't a fan of that James Blake song and I don't like Adz-era Sufjan Stevens. So those two plus a couple other songs caused the middle to drag a bit for me. It was a great listen though!

Now to start my ultra-late look at Part 2.

Listened to the first half of Joey's list. I liked most of the songs on there. A few songs are some of my personal favorites of the past few years: Lights, Modern Man, The Birds. No complaints about the flow either. Overal a very solid list. Will listen to part 2 later today.

I liked part 2 more than part 1. The flow was even better with some very nice transitions. 17 Summers - Give Up the Ghost stood out to me in particular. Again, I liked most of the songs. I do feel the playlist could have used a few more uptempo tracks. I know that'd go against the concept but it would help to keep my attention at all times. But that's probably just me.

Didn't dig laz's second half as much as the first half. I may have taken a break in the middle of it to listen to the first part again before finishing the second. Still structured well, flows well, etc. just music-wise wasn't entirely my cup of tea.

Sort of felt the same way about iyup's. I can't hate on anything that includes any version of enjoy the silence, but at times it got way more dance-y than I can take (daft punk made me want to stab myself in the ears). Again, solid as hell. If it was music I actually liked, then I'd probably love it.

Wait until you hear mine. As mellow as they come.
