I'm afraid that mine is not terribly soothing this time around. Apologies for that.

Actually, the drugs have kicked in, so migraine is no longer a worry. So far my review is:

"Oh, my God, iYup. This is amazing." Hopefully I can give a more articulate review when it's finished.

More articulate review:

Absolutely, simply sublime. I have a newfound respect for the blues, now. The groove this list hit is fantastic. Highlights are hard to pick out of something like this, but the three tracks that stood out to me the most were Jimi, Plant and Krauss, and Charles Mingus. There were a couple of transitions that didn't quite work for me, Stones into the White Stripes and the Kills into Depeche Mode, but once the songs got going, the transitions didn't matter. Each song had its own moment and still worked well with the others. The only thing I hate about it is that it's over. And using a Picasso from his Blue Period as your cover art: epic. Awesome.

In short:
Oh, my God, iYup. That was amazing.

Thanks very much, Reggo. That review is highly flattering. I am glad that you enjoyed it - especially the Mingus track, which I know can be an acquired taste. I just love the manic energy that he brings to his work, and Hog Callin' Blues, I feel, is quintessential in that regard.

I gave your list a listen today as well. I thought that the pacing was excellent. It moved briskly and conveyed a great deal of emotion in a direct, visceral way. I also loved that it incorporated so many genres and eras into a single listening experience. I could feel you working your way through complex feelings as the list progressed, and I am glad that you found it therapeutic - after all, that is what music should be.

That was the most polite anti-hotlinking pic I've ever seen.

It is. I need to get my own copy of the Orson Welles Intense Clap gif.

I loved it, it's probably my favourite track on the list.

Why, thank you very much. I was waiting for the first dude review of it and I'm glad you enjoyed it and saw what I was going for. I love a little bit of everything, so I decided to include a little bit of everything in here. Making this list and listening to it repeatedly to make sure that it was just right was the best medicine for getting through that break-up. Also, thanks for not teasing me about the Glee song

Work's kind of taken over this week, so I haven't gotten much listening in yet. I did find the time to listen to the sweet ambient sounds of LM's playlist at least. I'll try to jot something down about it later today.

Just finished your list, Cobbler. It was a delight. I thought that flow was a bit of an issue on your last entry, but this one was smooth as silk. The transitioning was extremely deft, especially so between Deadmau5 and James Blake, Cornelius and Outkast, and Miles and Tom Waits. You also did a fabulous job of mixing beat-driven tracks with ambient ones, and the inclusion of Mr. Davis will of course meet with great appreciation from me. Very well-done, Sir.

Just got through phanan's playlist.

I really enjoyed the classic rock vibe I got from it, yet the songs weren't obvious classic hits for the most part. The opening trilogy was amazing, especially Springsteen going into Creedence. The glam rock from T.Rex through Cheap Trick was inspired and all gave me new favorites to listen to. I haven't heard much Jesus and Mary Chain but I clearly need to start. Ending the ELO was another great move.

The only downside was that some sections had unmemorable songs to me. They'd barely register as they passed by for me, such as Bob Seger, Joe Jackson, and Stray Cats. Still, you can't go wrong with a classic, straight-up rock playlist!

On the back of LM's list, I picked up some Aphex Twin tonight. Cobbler, I also looked for DJ Shadow, but, alas, it evaded me. The search continues.

Thanks heaps man! The Deadmau5/James Blake transition was the only one I was a bit iffy about, but the more I listened to it the more I liked it. Really appreciate the comments, they've made me quite

Just listened to Cobblerino's playlist. I enjoyed the opening two tracks, they were both quite good. I found the Deadmau5 track to be much too long and perhaps a bit draining. I wasn't particularly impressed by the Outkast and Kid Cudi tracks, neither interested me a whole lot and I can't really imagine myself listening regularly to that type of music. On the other hand, I found the DJ Shadow and Miles Davis tracks to be very enjoyable. Also, I spent much of the time repeating "Friggin' Cobbler" in a Napoleon Dynamite voice throughout much of the playlist, but I'm not sure how that's relevant to anything.

All in all, a decent playlist.
