Your opener should be Beautiful Ghost (Introduction to the Songs of Experience)

So it's safe to say that "darkly beautiful" has replaced "atmosphere" as the buzz word this time around?
It's not melancholic like that, but I hope it's as beautiful as Untitled --> Collapse The Light Into Earth is.

I wouldn't say that's the buzz word, since the songs I consider darkly beautiful are close to being on the chopping block! "Beautiful" alone would be the buzz word, I suppose. Basically, one nice evening I was listening to Alcest's Tir Nan Og, which I think is the most beautiful album closer I've ever heard, and decided to make a tracklist to go with it.

I'm listening to the tracklist now, and I'm impressed with the transition between Eluvium's An Accidental Memory In The Cae Of Death and 65daysofstatic's Radio Protector.

So it's more of an uplifting list then?

Cool beans. I always read Alcest as "incest," but I'm a pretty sick fuck.

The U2 song I've got at the moment is A Sort Of Homecoming. It was a toss-up between it, The Unforgettable Fire, and Bass Trap. It fits sonically better than UF in its current spot, and I feel I've enough instrumentals already without throwing Bass Trap into the mix too.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond I-V is my opener at this stage. Every time I hear the intro, I think of when I first heard it back in September 2003 at about 5:30am, when the dawn was breaking over the northern plains of New South Wales.

That whole muttering of poetry over atmosphere really is quite conceptual, too.

It's a winner all around. And it's fucking rare.

A Sort of Homecoming's one of my favorite U2 songs - I don't know why I haven't used it in a list yet. I'm using Rejoice this time around. It was between that or When I Look at the World.

Shine On... works

It would show your effort, that's for sure.

Yes, I've tried to go for something positive, at least to me. I don't know if that will translate too well for the rest of you lot!

And heh, my mind has always made a similar connection. Like alcest is an even more twisted incest or something. I'd like to know what it actually means. I'm presuming it's French for something, since the guy behind Alcest is French and all the song/album titles and lyrics are in French.

It does, and yes, it affects a few of you in a negative way, depending on how many artists you repeated.

Then again, LJT participated in that one, and he blew us all out of the water.

No, actually, I think it's fairly unique as far as my lists go. Lots of post-rock and other instrumental stuff, which might make it a hard sell to some people. The main idea is to use the most beautiful songs I know, though it has evolved and developed since then.
Well, you'll know I'll most likely enjoy that.

Bass Trap's a good track, but, yeah, you need to know when enough is enough. Like Samuel L. Jackson or NSW. They both knew when enough was enough.

SOYCD is one of my favorite PF tracks.

Ooh, Rejoice. I like that, and I don't think anybody's used that before. My one hesitation with using ASOH (or UF) is that it's done before and it's almost a cliche U2 choice in DI. But I really can't think of anything better. It's in my top five or six U2 songs and there is little more beautiful than it.

It's a shame the 26 December 1989 show isn't officially available, cuz then he could add Where The Streets Have No Name with the poetry at the beginning.

I mean, how much more poetic can you get?

The Ground Beneath Her Feet is my track this time. I'm kind of fucking around with the transitions this time. Less emphasis on that, more on the overall playlist and the quality of the songs. I mean, they're not rough, but they're not really really smooth either.

The French are sick anyway. I wouldn't doubt it being the French translation.

Our tastes don't match up very well, but we share some common ground. I love how you put your lists together, but it'd be an added bonus to enjoy listening to it.

Not much. Then again, Drunk Chicken/America could be your route.
