Damn. How the hell did I miss this thread?

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I'm sure there's going to be some pretty abstract stuff to come out.

Boohiss.

You assumed correctly.

Ah well, I'm having a hard enough time narrowing down my playlist as it is. Probably saves me some trouble in the end.

It seems like avante-garde, abstract music is prized much above mainstream songs.

If so, then I'll be "OUT!" faster than Kramer in "The Contest"!

But I don't care. I love my playlist!

Oh, I wouldn't say that. I don't think anyone here is going to be including songs by Kayo Dot, Sunn O))), Sculptured, or Alarum. Though I was very tempted to use a Sculptured song (I would've if it didn't contain death vocals), and I'd love anyone who does.

Then again, I get this feeling what I consider "avant garde" and "abstract" music is enough to make what you consider to be avant-garde and abstract look mainstream.

I've submitted my tracklisting now and I'll be very interested to see how it goes. I followed a more melodic route than last time, wholly avoiding hyper-technical stuff or anything with death vocals. I'm quite happy with the song selection - there are some really beautiful songs here and I hope that everyone here takes the time to check out the bands they haven't heard of. Especially Sparkle That Shines by Straitjacket Fits and Christenings by Blackfield.

I just want to remind everyone that you can submit your playlist/questionare before you submit the links. It might be helpful to Axver, LMP and I. By submitting your playlists before you start uploading you would allow use more time for grouping and making sure that all rules were followed.

Thank you and continued luck on your playlists.

Axver or LMP, do you know who this last entry belongs to? I know liamcool and FitzChivalry were going to submit soon. If you know or if you're the person who submitted it, tell me.

It's liamcool.

I remember him posting he didn't know what Ultravox song to post, and this playlist is Prog-tastic.

atleast I think it's him.

It wasn't mine. I haven't submitted yet. Soon. I'm waiting to find out if a particular song is an official release or a White Label mix. If it's official, I'll have some last minute re-arranging to do. But I will try to have mine in by the end of the week.

Damn...seems like i missed it. I'll be a regular voter again. I loved this game last time and it looks more interesting with one artist - one song.

My advice is to do it and send it in.

You'll be wanting to change songs will into the tourney, trust me.

The best thing to do is just send whatever you have right now in.
