No way, man. Some of us own 450+ CDs and have an incredibly difficult time breaking it down to that "far too long" time limit.

No matter how hard I try, my lists always revert back to my suicidal tendencies in song selections, as far as votes are concerned

Axver - Before I purchase a Swingers cd on ebay, do you know anywhere it may be available for download? Been meaning to get it for a while now and don't wanna wait to transfer my lp to disc. And not just for Counting the Beat, love the whole record. Quirky, but hooks galore

A couple 20 minute songs by some old hippies (Allman Bros, Pink Floyd, Yes, even Porcupine Tree or Tool or Dream Theater, you get the idea) should do the trick for you.

On the other hand, getting more people to listen should be the goal. Would more people listen if the sets were shorter? Maybe a thread to find out.

At least Radiohead and Queen have dynamics and aren't "gloom-n'-doom-n'-the end of the world" all the time. I mean, seriously, one listen to Take A Bow pretty much tells you all you need to know. If you hate that, don't even bother.
who cares about the lyrics, honestly? They don't bother me much. I enjoy some of them. I wouldn't say Take a Bow is one of their best anyway - I'm all about stuff like Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome, Assassin, Hyper Music, Plug In Baby, Citzen Erased, Map of the Problematique, The Small Print, Time is Running Out, Exo-Politics, Dead Star, New Born, etc...in other words...songs that fuckin ROCK

I'd say in general Muse's slower stuff isn't their strong suit, but there are some exceptions - Sing for Absolution is beautiful, and I do love Starlight. But Invincible? Soldier's Poem? Let's not.

also, when has Radiohead ever deviated from doom and gloom? I do love Radiohead, but they certainly sway on one end of the emotional spectrum, much moreso than Muse.

Anyway, I'm downloading all these playlists and it's crazy. Prolly won't listen to 'em til tomorrow and of course it'll take me awhile, but it'll be fun GOOD FOR ALL OF YOU FOR USING MUSE TRACKS

You know, to have a fair discussion about Muse, we really need to just ignore the complete shitfest that is Black Holes And Revelations. So there goes your Take A Bow comment. Not a single good song on that album and I have no fucking clue what some of you see in Knights Of Cydonia.

... too ... long?

Yeah, no. Most of us have an attention span.

But who cares about votes when creating great art?

I've had no luck with finding anything other than an MP3 of Counting The Beat, the song. I'd love to have some more, but the best I can do is videos on YouTube.

feel free to PM or email any and all to me Thanks!


I've tried downloading Screwtape's file, part 1 of 2 zip, and it won't let me open the zip file or try extracting it. I've tried twice now - don't know why it won't let me extract it. Anyone else have a problem?

Huh, I don't think I know those other two. I'd certainly like to hear them though!

You didn't have to be rude, I was only asking. It's got nothing to do with attention span. I just know there would be absolutely no chance of me finding any time to listen to sixteen four hour playlists, assesing them, relistening to them to adapt to them and decide on which has better flow, cohesion, songs, blah blah blah. I don't know how anyone can find the time. And it proved a problem in the prog game so

yeah, i think they were just singles. they're not on practical jokers.

you should check out the album other enz: split enz and beyond, it's got at least one song from just about any body to come out of split enz. there's crowded house of course, schnell fenster, eddie rayner, etc.

Dude the last couple minutes of Knights of Cydonia make the song worth it...but it's by no means the best song on the album. That would be Map of the Problematique

BHAR is probably their weakest album (that I've heard at least, I don't have Showbiz yet...), but it's growing on me. Really the only tracks I don't bother with at all are Soldier's Poem and Invincible. Take a Bow and Hoodoo are mediocre. The rest are pretty solid.


as for the time limit thing... 2 hours 40 minutes is nothin for MAKING a playlist, but I agree that it can be hard to find time to listen to everyone else's...but that's why Screwtape is sending out some early. it's not like you have to listen to them all at once i guess it can be hard to measure the cohesion factor though, if you don't have lots of free 2 hour 40 minute blocks in your day

That's what I meant. I don't have any free four hour blocks at all. Of course it's nothing for making one, but listening is another matter.
