Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 1, Match 7

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the seventh match of the first round for Interference Desert Island VI! 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.

If you haven't listened to all the playlists, and you don't think you'll have time to get through them, I would urge everyone to at least review how each playlist is structured and, if possible, to check out the sequencing and flow of the songs. I'd also take the time to listen to a song by an artist you are unfamiliar with, or any song by an artist you usually dislike, as sometimes you may hear something you never thought you would have from that artist.

AtomicBono was a decisive winner in Match 5 over coolian2, 14-4.

Axver and bono_212 are up for Match 7. Below are their playlists.


Forum name: Axver



STUTTERS ACROSS THE HORIZON

Also known as Gettin' Transparent.

"It was not yet five o'clock in the morning, too early for even the December dawn to break. The pristine night sky cast a shimmering radiance while a few threads of light, vague harbingers of the oncoming day, stuttered across the horizon ..."

Robert's Fucking Despair Knows No Geographic Boundaries...I Mean...He Is Upset. So Take A Little Pity On The Guy Why Don't You?

I really don't have much to say about this list. Listening to it makes me extremely happy, that's for sure. I tried not to let current events in my life taint it too much, but, well, that's just not entirely possible, as, I find with music, you listen to the music that fits the mood your in. So, maybe I am semi-attempting to give an explanation for why my list is a little "poppier" than average, but, really, I created something I enjoy, and I hope you all can get a bit of entertainment out of it as well.

1. The Cure - "The Top" - The Top (6:58)
2. Peter Gabriel - "Games Without Frontiers" - Hit [Disc 1] (3:58)

7. BellX1 - "The Great Defector" - The Great Defector (4:41)
8. The Killers - "On Top" - Hot Fuss (4:19)
9. Snow Patrol - "Set The Fire To The Third Bar" - Eyes Open (3:24)
10. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Hysteric" - It's Blitz!
11. Simon and Garfunkel - "America" - Bookends (3:36)
12. Joni Mitchell - "Both Sides Now" - Both Sides Now (5:45)

18. Pixies - "Debaser" - Doolittle (2:53)

Damn.

This is probably Ashley's best entry ever. But Axver has such a beautiful piece of work here.

I generally lean towards the heavier side of rock music. since these two are so close, I gotta go with Ax.

I don't think I remember one word being sung in Ax's list

Didn't even notice when I cut and pasted it from Ax's PM.

Ax is usually quite meticulous about such things, too.

I promise I'll change it the next round he's in, if that makes you sleep better at night.

I really consider this match a draw; both lists are superb. Since Ashley has such a big lead, I'll give this one to Ax.

He probably illegally downloaded the song and didn't know any better.

I hate that 65 Days Of Static format their name stupidly.

I have to kudos Ax for trying something so different to the other DIs, but if this were a cover competition, then Ashley would kick the arse all round.
