The only two I've listened to for DI4 is LM and LMP.

Liked LM's significantly better. My only big issue with LM's list is that it peaked with Summer '68 ... with about 18 tracks that followed it. Other than that, I enjoyed it.

LMP's just had no direction, no concept.

That sounds like it would be cool.

1. Thunder Road
2. Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out
3. Night
4. Backstreets
5. Born to Run
6. She's the One
7. Meeting Across the River
8. Jungleland

(This is my favorite album of all-time, by the way.)

I haven't listened to any for this tournament yet. I'll have to soon.

Actually, I think Two Hearts Beat As One would've fit will in mine.

I used to have one of those. I stopped, though.

Yes you will. I'm pacing myself. But soon if more links aren't posted I won't be able to. Hopefully more will be posted by tomorrow or Saturday.

Ah yeah, I remember that. Not all too well. I wonder where I put Springsteen's albums, as I suppose I should play them again.

What I remember is the first three tracks bored me, Jungleland was too long, and the title track just lacks any kind of resonance or power as it lacks in delivery.

Mine has a strange concept, but I didn't write a paragraph to explain it. I thought the title of the 3 vinyls would serve well enough:

Shoes, Soda, and Earth.

Anyway, I'm back off to work for a bit before my last break.

Our tastes just don't mesh. For the record, I thought your DI3 list was your best so far. I'm quite surprised that it wasn't more successful, especially considering that it was your most accessible up to that point.

Like when there is a little break and silence for like 20 seconds and then a 30 second bit that's an intro to the next track. I want to be able to edit that shit out. My playlist would've been different.
If I were still running it, I wouldn't object to silence being edited out. Editing the content of the track, however, I would never support.

I do think it's a cultural thing, too. I spend most of my summers on the Jersey Shore, so a lot of it resonates.

I think the second half (Stewart Island) of my Desert Island III list is the best tracklist I have ever made. I still listen to it. I think I was doomed by its obscurity, though. Not enough people took the time to listen. Plus I admit there were too many songs involving Neil Finn (four!).

Personally, I think my Desert Island II submission was a bit more accessible.

Yeah, definitely a cultural thing. As an intellectual Kiwi, I find relating to his American working class background to be almost impossible.

But then all the live stuff I've heard by him has been really good, so who knows.
