I'd try to do it as notAxver's submission, but you're such a Nazi stickler over this shit.
Actually I was thinking of something that could allow you to expose people to metal. What if we had a category for an additional artist that people could submit without having to attach their name? A listen at your own risk sort of thing.

Hey Ax, I think you need to reread your posts sometimes a bit more. I mean I'm not nitpicking, it's just that you clearly made a mistake here:

I hope next time you post, it's without an innocent error like that.

I haven't listened in fucking ages, keep this in mind. But I'd swear something had cheesy keys.

I'm sure you and phanan are very soon going to coax me into digging up my CD with Springsteen albums on it.

Why would you say The Wall is cheesy? I think that while it is massively flawed and boring, it is not cheesy. Overblown, yes. Music sacrificed at the concept's altar, yes. But I don't hear cheese. I just hear Roger Waters stuck too far up his own arse.

I remember it being really cheesy. I mean, Young Lust is on it, right? That's cheesy. And when it's overblown, it gets a little on the mozzarella side, too.

Hmm. Let me tell you what I'd most ideally like to do. It doesn't fit the CD Exchange, and I don't think it suits DI either, but it'd be something I'd like to do sometime and may be a worthwhile exercise. I'd like to do a playlist to ease people into metal. It's kind of ridiculous to throw, say, Agalloch's I Am The Wooden Doors at someone and expect them to love it straight away. But a CD that logically progresses from stuff that isn't metal into stuff that is, gradually adding various elements, might open people up to the genre.

Young Lust is on it, but I can't remember a bloody thing about it.

I love Comfortably Numb, Hey You, and Run Like Hell. The rest just blurs together in a big mass of total boredom.

Oh, wait. The Trial is cheesy. So there we go.

Born in the USA (the album and the song) is a bit cheesy, but other than that, Springsteen's brutally earnest in his songwriting. Born to Run has no cheese at all.

Why not a thread dedicated to easing people into different genres? People choose a genre at the start of the thread to ease some on into. For example you choose metal and send that metal playlist to people who leave their e-mails. They give it a listen and report their thoughts in the thread.
