Has everyone even listened to all of these yet? The last thread had like 15 pages and this is stuck at 5.

I, uh...am a little behind now, I confess.

I'll be finishing up the first section tonight and moving on to this one soon.

I think I posted about this thread's lists in the other, probably wasn't the only one. But I still haven't gone back to tourist's list, nor have I listened to padj or Joeys. Lms, too. (Sky, not just LM, I listened to that).

I got behind because I was on vacation. I play to listen to the rest from this list that I haven't already listened to next week at work. I still haven't posted my thoughts on the two I listened to before my vacation, but I'll do that around the same time I post my thoughts for the rest.

Almost finished with LemonMelon's list. I only knew 4 songs of the total 38 so there was lots to discover for me. As I said earlier, classic rock isn't exactly my thing so this list was quite a difficult one for me. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would though! The opening trio was really strong. Putting a classic like Born to Run in second place was a smart move. The next stretch of songs kept the energy high but it was my least favorite stretch. Lots of short rocking songs that all started blending together after a while. It wouldn't have hurt to place one or two longer tracks there to shake it up a bit.

From Evil Woman onwards, with the tempo down, I enjoyed the playlist a lot more. Evil Woman-Jackie Blue was a great duo. The bluesy part wasn't really my thing but there were a few tunes I did enjoy. I'd Have You Anytime-Ocean of Noise was the most recognisable stretch for me and also one of my favorites. This Is a Hardcore was my favorite unknown song of the playlist. The acoustic songs were nice but it was hard to keep paying attention becaus I didn't know any song. I just finished listening to the jazz track. Really good. Last song, which I love, just started.

For a final conclusion I'll have to relisten to a few songs I think. Definitely a very interesting listen for me.

It probably also has to do with the fact that there are lots of American artists on the playlist who aren't as well known in Europe.

And I haven't delved into older rock music as much as I'd like to.

I think it's great that you discovered so much music through my list. I knew when I put the list together that I was running the risk of people being too familiar with the material, so it's nice to see that wasn't entirely the case.

Yeah that's why I participated in the first place.

I had the same experience with Laz's list (listened to that one today). I knew exactly one song from that playlist. But man, Zoots Rocks was right up my alley. Love that alternative rock sound. Probably my favorite of the bunch so far. Flowed really well and flew by, expecially the first half. Highlights were Stardust Remedy, Balentine, Harness Your Hopes and Blame, Etc. which was the one song I knew.

Zoots Grooves was also enjoyable. The first few songs weren't my favorites but it got better after that. Hard to pick highlights but it was a very good overal listening experience with a good flow.

Nice to hear! I'm always glad to turn more people onto Bettie Serveert, a fantastic Dutch band who have been around for 20 years and just put out a very energetic new album a few months back. Ballentine is from their first album Palomine, which was fairly popular on college radio back in the day due to them being on Matador Records.

So what was our final count for this? Did we really reach 20 entries?

El Mel told me I've got dibs on a backup spot.
