Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 4, Match 3

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third match of the fourth 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.

In Round 3's seventh match, phanan remained undefeated by holding off Irishteen/Lemonchick, 12-8.

Here in Match 3 of Round 4, Axver looks to rebound from last round's loss, but will need a victory over Group 2's leader, PlaTheGreat/the rockin edge, to do so. 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


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.

this is hard...a lot of pla/tre's is more my taste because it's stuff I'm familiar with, but I really appreciate the mood axver set with his, and even though I didn't like all of it, there were definitely some cool songs I never would have heard otherwise, so I'm goin with the Ax on this round

Pla/Tre not only made a list of songs that I really liked, but put it together well.
