Finished Segment 1. Pretty much liked it the whole way, as I figured I would, knowing all the songs. Seemed to all go together fairly well. The end was the only thing that prevented it from being perfect. Even though it's Lennon, I despise Woman as much as I do McCartney's My Love.

Segment 2 felt a bit more disjointed to me, with the major exception of the trio of The National -> S&G -> Fleetwood Mac. Damn, that was fantastic.

Once again, enjoyed most of the songs here. I'm not as big of a fan of BSS' self-titled work as the others, and I didn't care for the Magnetic Fields song, but other than that, we're rolling along just fine.

"Lonesome Town" -> "Blue Ridge Mountains" didn't work for you?

Funny, I was just coming back on here to mention that those two back to back was also a highlight that I forgot to mention.

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!
I don't like Third Eye Blind either, but I fucking love the lyrics in that particular song. Craziness.

Thanks for the kind words, phanan. I appreciate it. And I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Finished up the LMP/NSW extravaganza. Segment 3 was probably my least favorite in terms of actual songs, although in terms of flow it worked very well. Best parts were A Tribe Called Quest to kick things off, and the Living Colour -> Catherine Wheel -> The Ocean Blue combo. I can't remember the last time I heard a Living Colour song.

Segment 4 was a near excellent showcase of new and old songs alike. Nice R.E.M. selecton - very underrated. And listening to Ace and The Commodores brought me back to the days of driving around with my mother in her old silver Honda Civic. Ah yeah, AM radio...

One of the all-time Springsteen tracks certainly doesn't hurt either.

So how was the LMP/NSW experience? Pretty good I say. It's a different beast when two people are jointly in on a playlist; I imagine it's a bit more difficult getting a song order compiled to the satisfaction of both, but you guys managed to put together a solid structure of tunes.

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

And that's Maureen Tucker, the drummer, singing "After Hours."
happy to admit it's a good song, just from what i've heard of The Smiths they've done better.

oh, not sound quality, i meant packaging. the only physical copy i've been able to find in store is $25, in a standard plastic case, with just piece of paper as an infill.

Yikes at how much a CD costs in Australia.

that might be true, but i'm factoring in that a) i won't be going out and getting my drink on with mates a few nights a week and b) you have to be 21 in most places? so i figure i can afford to spend more on music!
