Joey 788: Thought Blur dragged on a bit to start disc 2 and I felt the same about the Danger Mouse song. But Gotye was pretty cool. To be honest, most of this stuff doesn't appeal to me. But as a whole it fits together and flows, which I can recognise. Bat for Lashes onwards I liked. All a bit too slow for my liking, even though I know that's what you were trying to do here. Have to say I much preferred disc one, but I enjoyed it, and respect the craftsmanship.

Just listened to Joey's disc 1. Here are some thoughts:

- The opening Elbow song I too found it a bit boring initially but halfway down it picked up and I liked it.

- Could not really get into St. Vincent's Cruel at all.

- The flow in this section thru' Metric, Interpol and DM was good though.

- That DM track for some reason I kept thinking this ending doesn't sound like the one on the album and then it turned out that I was thinking about Judas' ending, lol. Anyway, cool track though not my top fav from SOFAD.

- TV On The Radio was interesting and I think I liked the Arcade Fire track.

- Beck was okay. I quite liked the Danger Mouse/Norah Jones track.

- Florence was cool. And so was Joy Formidable.

- Beatles into Coldplay I have to agree that the flow was a bit odd. Maybe it's cos everyone automatically expects the upbeat Mr. Kite to follow She's Leaving Home.

- The National track was interesting and went quite well with the REM classic.

Good first disc!

iYup - I just had loads of fun listening to your playlist. Lots of songs I had not heard in a while, and that will make me want to go back to those albums/artists soon. The sequence from Kiss to Bizarre Love Triangle was probably my favorite, but so was the final five or six songs (especially Shell of Light through Enjoy The Silence). The sequencing was very smooth, one can see that you spent a lot of time working those out.

It was a really great companion to my saturday morning and helped give me some energy while I was assembling some Ikea furniture.

Thanks, man. Glad you enjoyed it. I tried fitting that Actress track into the list in about five different sports, just because I have always found it entrancing.

Continuing with Joey's disc 2...

- Star Eyes was okay.

- Lazy Poltergeist was very nice and flowed well into the lovely Porcupine Tree track.

- Nine Inch Nails... had to listen to it again to remember it.. not bad.

- Bat For Lashes was nice. First time I'm listening to her but have been meaning to check her out.

- Stay is of course a classic!

- The next few tracks were okay but I need more listens to really appreciate.

- The flow has been pretty damn good so far.

- The Radiohead song is alright but not my favourite from Limbs. But it has great atmosphere just like the closer from Steven Wilson which was quite beautiful.

- Didn't fully understand the need for that piece by Savages though. Sounded like their equivalent of Viva Davidoff. :P

Overall, I think I enjoyed your playlist quite a bit!

now I'm thinking I should cut that nine inch nails song out of my list since its been used already. Of course, had I not been slacking, i wouldn't have known this and we would have just had quite an amusing coincidence. Ah well, I'm probably the only person in the history of forever who thought it fit well after the song that precedes it anyway.

Of course. Let it be noted, though, that the album that track comes from, Strange Mercy, is one of the finest of the last few years.

Saying bad things about Annie Clark should be a criminal offense.

Yep. One of the best live performers I've seen too.

I finally got to sit down and listen to Joey's list. Well done. Good flow and good songs. The transition from 17 Summers to Give Up the Ghost in particular stood out as a good one. There was a notable shift between the first and second parts, and while they both made sense as standalones, the whole list also works together well. It never dragged anywhere, despite the pretty consistent mid-tempo pace. Great start to the tournament.

Update: 14/20 playlists are in right now, and I've already got group 2 set in place. I think I may run this until sometime late next week before starting the next thread up, but I just wanted to let you guys know how far along things are.

Apologies for the delay with mine. I had a lot of things going on these past few weeks, but I hope to submit within the next few days.
