Thunderous, sea-faring. Thank you, Jake. We should do taglines for our playlists next time instead of paragraphs.

Another great entry from you. An Alan Parsons sighting, even if it was just the intro. The transition to Gorillaz was as good as it could be without the ability to mix it directly into Kids With Guns, but I like the idea.

A lot of these songs are fairly straightforward new releases, but good quality nonetheless. Nice Bruce and Shearwater selections.

I liked Part 1 a bit better than Part 2, but the whole thing was pretty good, despite the lack of more older tunes. But when it comes down to it, it was a great listen and that's the most important part.

So yeah, killer playlist. Captain Obvious, I know. Almost had that Shoes song on my mini DI. I probably would have ended it differently, but that's a minor quibble. Only a few artists on here that I don't care for (Wilco, Sufjan) but everything else was quite fantastic. Really liked how you transitioned from pure power pop, through some blues and country, to classics from George Harrison and Zeppelin to Arcade Fire and Pulp, and then going back to Dylan and the Stones. Some nice sequencing there.

So yeah, killer playlist.

Laz's list is unrelentingly sassy and a crash course in a decade's worth of deep cuts.

R.I.P. Zoots indeed.

Damn! Nobody commented on my Pink Floyd/Radiohead transition. I thought it was quite nice even if I say so myself. :P

Actually, Laz did.

Always good to see new participants in DI, as you never know what to expect.

Your playlist consisted of many artists and songs that I was already familiar with, the majority of which I like a lot. I'd rate Part IV the best - those last three songs are some of my all-time favorites.

I thought your transitions worked well, even going from one part to the other. Some artists that I've mentioned in the past not caring for are on here (i.e. Björk, Flaming Lips), but for the most part, it was a good listen. Glad you participated.

Zoots Rocks was pretty much fantastic all the way through. I was less enthused with Zoots Grooves, but loved the Robbie Robertson track, which admittedly I hadn't heard before, along with ones I already knew like The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim and Saint Etienne.

I was struck by the number of female artists (or female lead singers) included, which was gratifying to see and hear. More often than not, and I count myself in this criticism, we tend to overlook their contributions to music in a field dominated by guys. I thought you did a great job mixing them in, creating a nice balance between the two. Always great to hear women rock out...

Thought the first part of your playlist was phenomenal. Just a great run of songs. Obviously mentioned Second Skin already, but I hadn't heard the Noir Désir track before and really enjoyed it. The middle dragged a bit for me, but then it picked back up with great tracks from The Shins, The Stone Roses and Rain Parade.

The flow was executed very well throughout; I thought the songs blended together smoothly. Comes across as a moody piece that played well on headphones. Great DI entry.
