Desert Island Album Game II: Quarter Final 4

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

If you are not familiar with the songs, most contestants have uploaded them! Leave your e-mail address and we will help you hear the songs so that you can vote for the tracklist as a whole!

Welcome to the fourth and last quarter final of the Interference Desert Island Game II! The premise of this game is that all of the Interferencers have been stranded on a desert island and we can only take up to 160 minutes of music with us (either as a continuous iPod playlist or two 80 minute CDs or any other format of our choosing). The object is to see which forum member can fit the most musical goodness into these 160 minutes.

In the third quarter final, U2VertigoFly defeated Screwtape2 16-7. U2VF now proceeds to the second semi-final and will meet the victor of this round.

This round features tracklists by XHendrix24 and Axver. Below, you will find their tracklistings. If you are unfamiliar with the songs included, we can help you hear them! Just leave your e-mail address.

Forum name: Axver

Axver writes: For this tournament, I chose to follow a different route than last time, partly due to the ban on repeating songs and partly due to my own desire not to be thematically repetitive and to look at my submission from a different angle. Accordingly, this compilation leans more towards melodic rock, with the metal element of the last submission almost entirely absent and the prog element viewed a new way, seeking to show the genre is not about soulless excess. The compilation is not designed to present a journey or work towards a specific point, but to provide a broad sampling of different moods and themes within a cohesive whole. It can accordingly be enjoyed in full or dealt with in thematic portions appropriate to the listener's mood. There are moments of hope, of politics, of tenderness, of cynicism, of joy, of regret, and a conclusion of sheer beauty in the form of Porcupine Tree's The Rest Will Flow. I feel that this is accordingly an ideal desert island compilation: the moods someone stranded on such an island would feel are diverse and can be addressed by various segments of the tracklisting, and the full effect provides masterfully crafted musical accompaniment to the experience both of the desert island and life in general.

1. Anathema - "Release" - A Fine Day To Exit (5:47)

4. Muse - "Hysteria" - Absolution (3:47)
5. Rush - "A Passage To Bangkok" - 2112 (3:35)
6. Spock's Beard - "Skin" - Day For Night (4:01)
7. Delays - "Wanderlust" - Faded Seaside Glamour (3:58)
8. Mew - "The Zookeeper's Boy" - And The Glass Handed Kites (4:43)
9. U2 - "Treasure (Whatever Happened To Pete The Chop?)" - New Year's Day single (3:24)
10. Crowded House - "Mean To Me" - Crowded House (3:15)

If anyone needs to download my tracks, the links have expired for all apart from tracks 11-15. If you need to hear any others, tell me which they are and a surprise will appear in your e-mail inbox.

I suppose it goes without saying that I voted for myself. With Screwtape's elimination, my tracklist is the only one left that I strongly like.

Axver. He is the only one left out of what I consider the top tier playlists in the competition.

At the moment, it's 13-12 in my favour. All too close for my liking! I'm glad we're having a good, close contest though.

XHendrix A Day In The Life, Train In Vain, Under Pressure.... Axver's was really good too though, it was a difficult choice. He had I Got You and Pinball Wizard.

This quote is from the previous thread, but I wanted to keep the most recent round ahead of it, so I'm replying to it here.

Quite frankly, I think how you all have this process setup takes way too long, and because of that, most people began to just vote for whatever they knew already. I think serious consideration should be given next time to eliminate the repechage round. Whatever total number of entrants there are, it should be just straight up all the way to the final two and be done with it.
