Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 3, Match 3

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third match of the third round of the Interference Desert Island Game IV! 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.

For every win, each player will receive three points. If there is a tie, each player gets two points. If a player loses a match but is within three votes of the winner, that player will earn a single point.

At the beginning of each round, I will include the updated standings. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.

LemonMacPhisto was able to pull out an important victory over LemonMelon in Round 2's seventh match, winning by two votes, 12-10. LemonMelon picks up one point.

The third match of Round 3 pits Axver against Lara Mullen. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each tracklisting flows, feel free to check out the Desert Island website.


Forum name: Axver



SO THIS IS PERMANENCE

This tracklist aims to create an artistic sketch of life's dark and bleak undercurrents. It exists in the shadows and on the margins. It is not designed to engage or to attract, but to create a desolate aesthetic through the use of various stylistic representations of the mournful, melancholic, and despondent facets of existence. It loosely traces a mental progression into an unfathomable abyss. It opens with the realisation of life's fleeting worthlessness and a lament for things of meaning that have been lost - bridges burnt, love interests extinguished, friends neglected, and family abandoned. It proceeds to grapple for hope, for resurrection, and to rekindle the fires that sustained a naive and youthful charade of meaningfulness. The fire merely consumes the dreams. There is nothing left but despair - no escape, whether through the natural, the intellectual, the hallucinogenic, or even death. Death is as futile as life. This leads to the final realisation - that it is not so much staying alive but staying human that is important. And by this point, humanity is lost forever in the abyss.

These are the shadows that gnaw upon existence.

Lara has a more diverse list and stuff more to my taste, but I think Axver's list is better constructed overall.

Gotta go with Lara on this one.

I'm slightly surprised by this one so far, although both playlists are very well done.

This was tough for me...I ended up going with Lara's because it's more my taste overall. However, Axver's was very well put togehter, and I dig the post-rock, and some of the metal stuff is pretty cool too. I appreciate getting exposed to a lot of stuff I wouldn't normally listen to

Mocedades – “Eres tu”

that song alone wins any contest for me

Yeah me too, especially considering how I failed so superbly in the last round
