I was thinking of doing the same. I have Smile, which is a compilation of their first two EPs. I need to listen to it a bit more, though - it's one of those albums I've been very slack with.

I think it is quite possibly one of the worst albums I have ever heard in my life. Like The Wall, the music is sacrificed at the altar of the concept, and unlike The Wall, which actually has three or so good songs, Lamb has absolutely none. And come on, a double album? There has never been a good double album in history.

Ooh, yes, I urgently need their first two EPs. Those have simply got to be good. I'm glad the third EP in its entirety is on the CD version of Nowhere.

There's your problem; it's Springsteen.

Also, g'day.

I already have one CD on the go. Accessible stuff and whatnot. Most people here don't give a shit about metal, so I've left it out. But I've thought of maybe doing a metal disc as well, for those people who would perhaps like to get into it, or who do enjoy the genre and want to find something new.

If I did a metal disc, I think I'd introduce people to Dream Theater, Orphaned Land, Cynic, and Agalloch.
Stick to one CD. I know we are going to do the exchange again so I would choose one of the CDs and save the other for the next exchange. Maybe people will be more willing to give metal a chance on the second go around.

This is true about The Wall. Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2, Comfortably Numb, and Run Like Hell were the only songs I liked.

I think Aerial by Kate Bush is the best double album. Every song is solid and nothing is sacrificed to the concept. Songs aren't parts to the whole but actual songs. The second disc in particular is amazing.

The Wall is probably the last album I want to listen to right now.

At least if it were Good Charlotte or something lame like that I could laugh at it. There is no fun in making laughs of the Wall because it's so damn boring.

Comfortably Numb is probably my favorite PF track right now. What a great song. Shame the rest of The Wall was shit.

Not many people are ever going to be willing to give metal a chance. I would never want to do it as my main submission, just a side upload for those who may be interested.

I'd try to do it as notAxver's submission, but you're such a Nazi stickler over this shit.

And I don't think it's an exception. Springsteen studio bores the daylights out of me. At least The Wall isn't cheesy. Some stuff on Springsteen's albums is cheesy.
