Desert Island V Album Game: Round 1, Match 6

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the sixth match of the first round for Interference Desert Island V! The premise of this game is that all of the Interferencers have been stranded on a desert island and we can only take up to 160 minutes of music with us (either as a continuous iPod playlist or two 80 minute CDs or any other format of our choosing). The object is to see which forum member can fit the most musical goodness into these 160 minutes.

For every win, each player will receive three points. If there is a tie, each player gets two points. If a player loses a match but is within three votes of the winner, that player will earn a single point.

At the beginning of each round, I will include the updated standings. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.

One final note: If you haven't listened to all the playlists, and you don't think you'll have time to get through them, I would urge everyone to at least review how each playlist is structured and, if possible, to check out the sequencing and flow of the songs. I'd also take the time to listen to a song by an artist you are unfamiliar with, or any song by an artist you usually dislike, as sometimes you may hear something you never thought you would have from that artist.

The winner of Match 4 was Mr. V, who easily beat KhanadaRhodes, 13-2.

Our sixth match has Lancemc and Axver battling it out. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each playlist flows, feel free to check out the Desert Island website.

I do believe I'm abstaining from voting in this one. I like Lance's songs more than Axver's, but the sequencing on Lance's kind of sucks in parts.

Sorry Axver, but I tried listening to your list one morning, and it basically put me to sleep. , thus I have to give my vote to Lance.

Axver has one of the best playlists in the tournament. It's just gorgeous.

Lance has a playlist that I liked much more than the last ones he's done, but while the songs were better, they didn't necessarily go well together.

Axver here.

I must say, Ax's was way better than I was expecting. I was seriously dreading it, but it's really quite beautiful. Could use more variety in parts, but it's a fine list.

Lance's has the same problems that have already been stated. Some good songs, but some real terrible segueing in parts. Some of the songs were pretty terrible as far as I'm concerned, too.

Clean vote for Ax here, sorry Lance.

To be honest I never even bothered listening to my own list.

You could at least vote for it, though.

Ax's list is gorgeous, and hangs together really well for the most part. It's got my vote.

There are some great songs on Lance's list, but not enough to save it

I guess in this case it's comparing apples and oranges anyway...
