I'm sneaky like that.

halfway through your list, fillyphan. it's been pretty great so far Race for the Prize was corrupt, but great way to kick off the list.

Fireworks was the best of the three Animal Collective tracks that i've so far in DI7.

The Interpol song was great, the Broken Social Scene song fantastic - is this epic, a million-things-going-on-at-once feeling a theme in their songs? - as was the Morning Jacket tune.

YYYs are catchy as hell and Cheerleader was a quiet achiever last year.

The Pavement song was the only one so far i can't say i've enjoyed.

Yeah, I just imported the list and Race For The Prize was indeed corrupt. Thankfully, I've got it already... but my question is whether it's the original version or the tamed down remix that was intended as the version to be used. The original version appears as, I believe, the 13th track on the US pressing and as the 1st track on the UK version.

it's very confusing that, i assumed it was the original (i don't know which pressing i have, there is i think 13 tracks, and the last three are 'Mokran' remixes of Race and Superman, and then Buggin'). i used the opening track.

finished your list, it was great. it's going to be hard rating these lists, but yours would be somewhere near the top at the moment.

Iron & Wine song was very enjoyable, Empire Ants might yet be the best Gorillaz song out, The xx was an album i never ended up getting around to, but i loved Intro and i quite liked how the list got all introspective and piano-laden from then on. Sigur Ros are a band i've always ignored, but i thought Gong was great.

New York... sounds like it could have been written eons ago by one of your country's esteemed songwriters (and I've just discovered the actual All My Friends is over 7 minutes!) and i knew you were obsessed with Ziggy's last hurrah.

well done.

Currently listening to AB's list. I'm about halfway through.

The start was awesome. The first four songs went together very well (except for Pelican being slightly abrupt). Of course, it didn't hurt that I knew three of them and like them all, but the third track, which I hadn't heard before, was excellent.

Then it drifted through many songs I didn't know, some I liked, some I didn't. I really dug that Crystal Castles tune, and using the Get On Your Boots remix was a good call. And you have Jesu on here - bonus points for that. In fact, the stretch from Black Panther to Wash It All Away was almost as good as the beginning foursome.

Up to Mogwai now. Always good to hear them.

Yeah, I wanted to go in a different direction this time and start hitting up some older material, especially after DI6 where almost every song I used was relatively new.

Did not realize that Race for the Prize was corrupt, I'll have to try and re-upload that one. I was using the original one, not the remix. And yeah, The Soft Bulletin is an incredibly confusing tracklist.

Finished up AB's entry. I quite enjoyed that. I'd say the first half was stronger, but there were still good nuggets to be found. I really like that Shall We? song; I'll have to search out Tides From Nebula more. I'm glad you included a PRR track, and it's one of their best as well. Again, some songs I didn't care for, such as the Giraffes? Giraffes! cut, but overall this was a great listen.

i've begun on your submission, phanan!

My Morning Jacket seem to me to be a band i should check out. thoroughly enjoyed the two songs i've heard so far.

Solsbury Hill is a song i've unknowingly known for years.

and hey! there are good Hoodoo Gurus songs!

Ha, yes Hoodoo Gurus had a few good albums there in the 80's.

If all goes well, I'll be listening to your playlist later today.

Ok, I'm working through cobl's list today.

I've listened to the first two discs so far. The first one (Australian) starts abruptly with So Haunted, since the song is sandwiched in between two tracks that go right into it, which makes using it for compiling purposes a bit tough. I believe there is a single version of it available that would have worked better here.

But apart from that minor quibble, I liked a lot of the material here, most of which I hadn't heard before. That 7 Worlds Collide track was excellent. The only other song I knew from this group was Streets Of Your Town, which is a classic.

More familiar territory for Disc 2, obviously, but good nonetheless. When I first noticed that you had Grizzly Bear following Hot Chip, my first thought was that it would sound awkward, but I'll be damned if it didn't flow perfectly together. Nice transition there. Still don't really care for Los Campesinos! though. The Flaming Lips are ok but not a favorite of mine, as most are already aware of.

Moving on...
