The opening track from Flying Lotus was ok, probably the one thing I didn't care too much for on here. Deadmau5 was fantastic - never heard that before. Not as keen with Destroyer as the rest of this board, but it wasn't too bad here. The twofer of Miles and Waits at the end was sublime, although the volume for Miles was a bit too high - not sure where you got that rip...

But again, I really liked this. High marks from me.
Thanks a lot mate yeah, I too noticed the disparity between Miles & Waits... I illegally downloaded Kind of Blue. I want to buy it but I don't know which goddam copy to get since there's about 100 reissues.

Just finished Vlad's playlist. Probably one of the oddest/original lists I've ever seen. I hardly knew any of the band's but there were some great discoveries there! I enjoyed the flow from Doves into Manic Street Preachers. It almost felt like they could be from the same album. I really enjoyed the third song as well. If there was a downside, it's that some of the transitions were off. But still, a really likable playlist.

There is a recent "legacy edition" two-disc reissue that both sounds great and contains some killer live performances and a handful of very strong cuts from 1958. I would recommend that one, but the Columbia reissue from the mid-90s will also get the job done. You should be able to find it used for a few dollars; most second-hand stores here have many copies of it.

Thanks, I'll have to admit that I found the transition between track 7 and 8 a bit iffy.

Yep, worked this time. Not sure what happened before, but I'm good now. Listening to yours today.

Well, Vlad, I definitely enjoyed that. I think I have a bit better of an idea of where your tastes lie now, and am a little confused why your list ended so soon, but the flow was great, and aside from a song or two (Cancer and I think Деньги на ветер) I loved the songs. "Szklany człowiek" and "747" were the best and that MSP song was pretty great too.

OK, I'm in on this after all, and I have begun with LM.

Traviud, your sense of cohesion and flow is impeccable. I'm not sure you can actually put a foot wrong in that regard. I was perhaps a little concerned midway through that the list was settling into a consistent rut stylewise, but you developed it well and covered a fair bit of ground in the end. Perhaps the only track that I felt dropped the ball was that by Burial, otherwise I have no gripes of note. No doubt this list will rate well for me when it's all said and done.

Second for me is Joey's list. It proved to be a bit better than it looked on paper, with the songs by the bands I'm utterly disinterested in proving to not be too bad (e.g. Arcade Fire, TV On The Radio). I was also a bit surprised by the REM pick, but it worked really well in its spot on the list ... I'm sure there are a couple of better REM songs in their catalogue that would have worked just as well, but I'm not complaining. Really the only transition that I thought was totally clunky was U2 to Oh Land. And contrary to what some folk said earlier, I think Enjoy The Silence was a good closer.

Awesome, thanks. I didn't really want to let the playlist drag on for that long, I thought an hour was enough but I'm very glad you enjoyed that. I have been pleasantly surprised by the feedback, in all honesty. Obviously, I would very much recommend you to listen to the works of the artists of the two songs you liked the best.

i guess i pretty much agree with axver on joey's playlist. pleasant tunes (my version of night-time driving music is a little darker, but i could see this working very nicely theme-wise), a lot of bands i'm not overly interested in listening to, but overall enjoyable. but outside of "criminal," there isn't anything i really hate on there. i had no problems with the cover of "white rabbit."


i'm not sure how i never knew "synchronicity II" was the police. i don't know how many times i've heard that, but never felt compelled to find out whose song it was. now i know.

oh, and i really, really liked the m83 song.

Last from this group for me was Vlad.

This was an interesting list, to be sure. Is Кукушка about a cat? I swear I heard them say the Russian word for "cat" a couple of times at the beginning. I really enjoyed this, even if I didn't understand the lyrics. Musically, it all worked very well. The Mansun song felt like three separate songs built into one track. And, OK, The Verve isn't all Bittersweet Symphony, but that song still sucks. Bittersweet Symphony, not the one you used. Well done for your first time out, малютка.

Кукушка means "Cuckoo".
