I had to stop yesterday, but I've continued on this morning.

Book I complete. As I really like electronic music, this was a very good listen. My only two complaints - I don't like Björk (but that's just personal taste, so nothing you could have done there), and Genesis doesn't belong. If anything, it looks like it would have been better for the next part, although I haven't listened to that yet. It's a fantastic track though; I had it on my Prog Island playlist way back when.

Thoughts on Book II...

Didn't like it as much as Book I, but still good. You've got balls for putting Atom Heart Mother on there. While it fits in with what you were doing here, it's not exactly one of Pink Floyd's best moments, in my opinion. Muse, on the other hand, was perfect. And Festival was fine where it was.

Great effort. It sounds like you put a lot into it, and it shows.

Moved right on to GAF's...

I've listened to Day One so far. Loved the first four songs grouped together like that. Awesome start. A bit of a transition from there to Radiohead, but it worked ok. I guess the one thing that I considered only average was that Two Gallants track, but it wasn't exactly awful either.

Great start.

Was able to sneak in Day Two earlier. I think I prefer Day One, but this was still very good. Great Stones choice, and you dug out some other classics like Alright and I Don't Like Mondays, which always works for me.

Don't care for Life On Mars, which is nothing new, and I thought going from 2Pac to Lennon was a bit odd, but otherwise another fine set.

Probably won't get to Day Three until tomorrow sometime.

That's cuz LMP did the uploading.

And yeah, I know it's sacrilegeous around here not to like Bowie, or most of his stuff. Oh well.

Correction, I did tag them as LMP/NSW, but Mediafire tagged it as just me. I'm not that narcissistic... at least in that regard.

Finished up GAF's today. After the first few songs, it turned out to be quite the mellow Day Three. Nice call on Fountains Of Wayne - there's so much more to that album than just Stacy's Mom, and Hackensack is one of the best cuts on there. Also loved the G'nR/Pearl Jam pairing. Was never real big on Elliott Smith's material, nor Third Eye Blind (although I have a soft spot for Never Let You Go). Zeppelin and Dylan certainly are worthy inclusions, and Tender is an all-time classic and a nice way to wrap things up.

Really enjoyed it GAF. I had high expectations since it took you so long to get this in...good thing you succeeded!

well i'll be starting up on evening - midnight tomorrow morning on the way to work.

so far however, i can't say i've overly enjoyed the list. quite a number of good songs in there (Happy, Gideon, Stay, among others) but a fair few i didn't really care for. i am of the opinion that There is a Light that Never Goes Out is not in fact the second coming of Christ, as a lot of people would have me believe. i've really enjoyed every National song i've heard in this comp. and Lonesome Town > Blue Ridge Mountains > Exit Music was seamless. great job there.

I don't know anyone that says There Is A Light That Never Goes Out is the second coming of The Christs, though it's a damn fine little song.

Uh, I don't know which list to listen to next - probably Phanan's. GAF's looks like fun.

i am fond of exaggeration, but i do know a few people who claim it (and particularly its lyrics) to be, or at least herald it as The Smiths' finest. and it's topped a few of those arbitrary lists.

finished now. still a number of songs i was pretty indifferent too. Glacially was just about my favourite from the entire list, great song. really wishing there was a worthwhile version of Closing Time available, i can't wait to hear the whole record. New York City Serenade was pretty good, though it sounded pretty poor. and who's singing on After Hours? that's not Nico is it?

I've noticed this. Eh, if you don't like, don't like it. I'm quite fond of it, obnoxious use of it in 500 Days of Summer aside.

Closing Time, the Tom Waits album? The version that I have sounds pretty good.

And that's Maureen Tucker, the drummer, singing "After Hours."
