Into My Arms > Bad was probably the best combo/transition of the tournament, and props for How To Make Gravy.

He's only 18 I think.

There was one person who put it last. After that, most of its rankings were somewhere in the middle.

Like you said, some great songs, but a little unfocused.

I think it's bullshit that the list would rank last for anyone, but hey, I guess it's good that a list can't win simply for picking the right artists. I was cool with it myself.

EDIT: oh, nevermind. Bless your heart, Reggo.

Ultraviolet's was really enjoyable for me. Loved most of the song selections. Flow was a little off but there were also some excellent segues, such as Nick Cave into "Bad" into "On Melancholy Hill."

Plus, it exposed me to another gorgeous Radiohead b-side. No complaints about that.

Not a favorite of mine. But still some very good songs on it and solid in many ways.

I'm just surprised by the placing! His list probably would have won DI2. The game has changed a lot.

Lots to love on this list for me. I was who ranked it in 2nd place. I thought both halves were really well put together with a wonderful mix of old and new rock songs that I really liked. Loved U2 and INXS back to back. Arcade Fire and The National was awesome as well.

Excellent list for me.
