I like that description, it sums up my reaction too. It also reminded me of a retro movie soundtrack, one where all the scenes are set during a relaxing summer afternoon or a warm night that stretches out.

But AtomicBono's playlist is my favourite so far. I didn't quite like all of the tracks but seeing as how I only knew five going in that's not bad at all. Some of the instrumentals impressed me a lot and when listening with the concept notes / splits in mind it works very well for me.

Ok, that's good to know.

I'm glad people are digging my playlist

it's tough competition though. I really enjoyed BonoIsMyMuse's list...and I didn't have that Wilco song before! I love getting new music that's really my favourite thing about this competition, being exposed to songs I don't have from bands I like already, or (even better) discovering new artists

Definitely.

Our vote count is much smaller for these two matches.

^ I know hmm, some people though have mentioned they haven't listened to everything yet though.

Voted AtomicBono...once again for providing something a bit different to listen to

This wasn't a tough decision for me. BIMM's tracklist just is not my style of music at all. Now, there are some songs I rather like, e.g. those by REM, the Crowdies, and U2, but for the most part, it's simply not music I find appealling. I really feel I'm in no place to critique it and it would be horribly unjust for me to say it's bad or anything like that; my tastes and the music simply don't meet.

On the other hand, AtomicBono's tracklist has rather impressed me. Some of the second part and a couple of other songs lose me (looking at you, Thrice), but most of it I found quite enjoyable and well structured. Some bands, notably Maserati and M83, I have been meaning to check out for a while. And it's good to see somebody else using Long Distance Calling!

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Both decent lists; I liked BIMM's a little better.
