Desert Island V Album Game: Round 5, Match 5

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fifth match of the fifth 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.

The first match of this round has ended, with phillyfan26 defeating LemonMacPhisto by the score of 9-5 (with Ali's vote). Coupled with GirlsAloudFan's victory, this means that both pfan and GAF have qualified for the quarterfinals from Group 1.

In Match 5, LemonMelon looks to go undefeated against Lancemc. 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.

The purpose of splitting these two sets up is to emphasize just how drastically different they are from one another, and that they provide two entirely different experiences. It is preferable to listen to them in a row (if you do, I suggest you listen to Super Massive Black Cherub Metal, and then ease your way in to #9 Dream) but listening to them separately doesn't do much to hurt the overall experience. Ultimately, I hope everyone finds something to love here, and that those who find one set less enjoyable than the other could at least discover some new music out of it.



Supermassive Black Cherub Metal

Not much to say about this playlist. It's just a set of good ol' fashioned rock n' roll that's consistently louder than anything I've entered previously; even the breaks in the loudness tend to be lo-fi and themselves filled with noise. But this is good, as there aren't any ballads awkwardly thrown in for the sake of variety. Sit back and crank this one up as loud as you can.

Track listing:

1. Smashing Pumpkins - "Cherub Rock" - Siamese Dream (4:57)
2. Pixies - "Broken Face" - Surfer Rosa (1:30)
3. Ween - "Dr. Rock" - The Pod (3:10)
4. Suede - "The Drowners" - Suede (4:09)
5. Sonic Youth - "Kool Thing" - Goo (4:05)
6. Beastie Boys - "Sabotage" - Ill Communication (2:58)
7. Elastica - "Connection" - Elastica (2:19)
8. Muse - "Supermassive Black Hole" - Black Holes And Revelations (3:29)
9. Porcupine Tree - "Blackest Eyes" - In Absentia (4:23)
10. Queens Of The Stone Age - "Suture Up Your Future" - Era Vulgaris (4:37)
11. Blur - "You're So Great" - Blur (3:34)
12. Tom Waits - "I Don't Wanna Grow Up" - Bone Machine (2:30)
13. Neutral Milk Hotel - "Holland, 1945" - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea (3:12)
14. Cake - "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" - Comfort Eagle (3:23)
15. Pearl Jam - "Last Exit" - Vitalogy (2:53)
16. T. Rex - "Mambo Sun" - Electric Warrior (3:39)
17. Queen - "Sweet Lady" - A Night At The Opera (4:02)
18. Led Zeppelin - "Ramble On" - II (4:23)
19. The Small Faces - "Afterglow (Of Your Love)" - Ogden's Nut Gone Flake (3:30)
20. The La's - "Feelin'" - The La's (1:45)
21. Television - "Marquee Moon" - Marquee Moon (10:38)

Total runtime: 79:16



#9 Dream

This set is a concept album but, in contrast to Cherub Metal, which had a musical concept (rocking out as hard as possible), #9 Dream contains many running lyrical threads, along with a generally airy musical feel. Originally, this playlist was meant to be a soundtrack for a movie I wanted to make about a man who becomes extremely ill and decides to sleep his way through it rather than take himself to a hospital. The movie was going to be extremely surreal and would explore what a waking (2 hour long) dream would look like. Because of this, the playlist for it is equally surreal and feverish. It is very dark, filled with lyrics concerning illness, death, and insanity, but ultimately asks many thought-provoking questions about love and life. And, in spite of the darkness, there are many moments of childlike wonderment to be heard here. The twist ending is that, in accordance with a line in the final song here, Moby's "Porcelain" ("In my dreams I'm dying all the time"), the protagonist may or may not have survived the night. Regardless of whether or not they did, we can assume that they learned much about themselves during this hour or two. While listening, try to focus on the musical flow of the playlist in addition to the plotline, which actually strengthens its. As in any dream, there are moments where things go off the rails ("300 MPH Torrential Outpour Blues", "Defecting Grey") and this playlist takes advantage of the vignette quality that so many dreams take on. So, in conclusion, what can you expect from this playlist? Airy soundscapes, quiet darkness, lovely noise, and much contemplation. Dig it.

Track listing:

1. Modest Mouse - "3rd Planet" - The Moon And Antarctica (3:58)
2. The Verve - "Already There" - A Storm In Heaven (5:38)
3. The Cure - "Lullaby" - Disintegration (4:08)
4. The White Stripes - "300 MPH Torrential Outpour Blues" - Icky Thump (5:29)
5. My Bloody Valentine - "When You Sleep" - Loveless (4:11)
6. Cocteau Twins - "Heaven Or Las Vegas" - Heaven Or Las Vegas (4:56)
7. John Lennon - "#9 Dream" - Walls And Bridges (4:45)
8. The Flaming Lips - "In The Morning Of The Magicians" - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (6:17)
9. The Pretty Things - "Defecting Grey" - S.F. Sorrow (Bonus Tracks) (4:28)
10. King Crimson - "I Talk To The Wind" - In The Court Of The Crimson King (6:03)
11. Blind Melon - "No Rain" - Blind Melon (3:35)
12. The Moody Blues - "Floating" - To Our Children's Children's Children (3:00)
13. Radiohead - "In Limbo" - Kid A (3:30)
14. Beck - "Runners Dial Zero" - Mutations (Import) (4:02)
15. Genesis - "The Carpet Crawlers" - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (5:02)
16. Massive Attack - "Exchange" - Mezzanine (4:11)
17. Moby - "Porcelain" - Play (3:59)
