Well done, Screw. You were my #1, by a long way.

And great job as well, Phanan. I loved the second half of your list a great deal.

My favorite playlist of the game. Nearly flawless. I love the epic progression of the long tracks. Who would of that this would have such an impact on me? But it does.

You're going to have to link me to the exchange now.

Awesome. So happy for you, Screw. I have no idea where you were on my rankings, I think 6th, but it was such a great improvement for you on the last couple that I can't help but consider it a highlight of DI8 and a worthy winner.

Take that one low score away and my lowest placing was 8th.

I believe that is three second place finishes in a row for me now, between the mini 2000s and last two DIs. Kind of funny.

Congratulations in order for Screwtape, even though I emphatically disagree with the placement.

While I'm not usually a fan of those type of long, prog-ish numbers, phanan's list was a pleasure to listen to. The Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Rush, and Shearwater choices were all superb.

Go Screw!!!

...Wait. Something about that doesn't sound quite right...

Yours was my #1 for the longest time. If I could've given my top 6 lists all 19 15 points, I think I would've felt better about my rankings, cause they all tied for the best in my eyes. That was harder than making the damn lists in the first place!
