Intervention? That song is epic. My favorite Arcade Fire song.

Intervention > Devil's Arcade is quite epic, IMO.

So, I've really enjoyed Screwtape's list right up until Genesis. I'm 4.5 minutes in and I feel this song should be over already.

Mine's at least a bit different to what I've done before. Not in a way that will appeal to people, though.

Anybody listened to it yet? I did post it ...

Oh, and Streetlight Manifesto is a ... brace yourself ... ska/punk band.

Yeah, I went there.

Note: I think The Arcade Fire are over-rated and over-hyped mundanity.

I've yet to download any lists from people in my group, but Axver, yours will be the first after that.

Yeah, Genesis sucks.

I haven't heard that song in particular, but ugh, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is the single most over-rated prog album in history. No wonder the genre is so despised in the mainstream nowadays. Shit like that killed it.

Note: I think that to a much lesser extent, you are correct. Was not all that impressed by "No Cars Go" or "Keep the Car Running."

I can agree with you there.

What do you feel was wrong with your first entry, specifically? Outside of some bizarre choices like placing two Joy Division songs next to each other and, of course, using the same artists over and over, which everyone did back then.

I'm not going to write off an entire genre.

This is my first encounter with Genesis. 8.5 minutes in.
