Thanks everyone! I really liked my playlist, glad others did too.

I loved the first part so much! Not keen on the rap part but I still ranked this list very high. But it feel like a whole and concise playlist.

I really liked the first half. It was really well put together. But the second half lost me with the influx of rap music, which I've never been into with a few exceptions.

Three of my top five are still around. So that's good.

Very nice, mature first half and a fun second half with a few ridiculous tracks I could do without. That's really the way to go with hip-hop...people love it here in small doses. There is more and more of it these days in DI, which I love.

Anyway, I digress. Great improvement for you.

Given the reaction to the hip-hop segments, I can't wait to see how people react to my metal list.

6. Axver

Total Points: 138

Highest Ranking: 2nd
Lowest Ranking: 13th

Out With The Old, In With The Nucleus

This list has one simple theme: it is made exclusively featuring bands I have never used in DI before.* Obviously that presents challenges you don't normally get when making a DI list, and it certainly represents a deviation from the usual "Axver DI List". I did not make this list with any other intended story or message, preferring to leave that up to the listener. I find it far more interesting what people get out of music than what any tracklist compiler intends they get out of it.

*Or thought I hadn't. I only realised two artists were repeats after my list was essentially finalised and their spots were well cemented. I used The Go-Betweens in DI II, i.e. ages ago, so I figured I'd let it slide. I used Headless Chickens last DI, an inexcusable oversight, but since their representation is via a remix, I decided to keep it.

11. The Go-Betweens - "Was There Anything I Could Do?" - Bellavista Terrace: The Best Of The Go-Betweens (3:08)
12. The Paints Of Being Pure At Heart - "Stay Alive" - The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (4:56)
13. The Church - "Electric Lash" - Seance (4:25)
