Agreed but if your opponent used unique songs and made it work you have to give them more credit.

His DI2 was my favorite of his as well.
Yeah, that's why I like to mix it up a bit more. My playlist ventures into some post-rock, but I try not to overload the listener with it.

And I made an effort to make sure I used a lot of different artists this time around, compared to my last two. Aside from Porcupine Tree, I have hardly any prog artists. Hell, I don't even have Pink Floyd on there this time. Who would've thought that?

In fact, if you go through all my playlists, I believe the only artists to appear every time now are U2, Springsteen, and Porcupine Tree. That's it.

And I think that's a poor way of grading a playlist.

i know, it just sucks. phanan gave us all the time in the world to listen to the playlists, and it's obvious not everyone has. rounds 1 and 2 have been available forever, so there's no excuse as to how someone couldn't have listened to them by now.

and yeah, i know. i'm guilty of this. i didn't post in my matchup (for obvious reasons...is anyone ever going to vote against themselves?) and i don't think i've given reasons in any others. i just, i dunno. i feel like we discuss everything so much here in the superthreads, i've already said all i want/need to say about why i prefer this playlist over another. and if i really don't care for someone's, i feel bad saying theirs sucks.

You know the Salome bootleg though made in dreary Berlin are great for the spring and summer. She's Gonna Blow Your House Down, Sunset In Colors, Morning Child and Take Today are all great for this weather.

Well if you can find the smallest good thing about a playlist you should say what it is. That's what I do.

And this is for Axver when he wakes up later.

I listened to the new Russian Circles today, and I think it's excellent. It's not as heavy sounding as the first release, so I'm not sure what you'll think of it, but that's probably one of the reasons why I love it so much. The soundscapes are beautiful.

Counting the chart-toppers on mine and the indie tracks on his to compile a part of the grade? No, that's a bad way of grading it.

Yes, you do always have the most diverse playlists, which is pretty awesome. I would've put some This Will Destroy You on mine, but I really got into them after submissions were due, next time then.

I know I reuse at least 10-15 artists each time, but it's hard not to because they're my favorites. It rely lies on what songs you pick from them, like Bowie for example. In 4 lists, you could have 4 radically different Bowie tracks... but you shouldn't be penalized for wanting to use "Heroes," for example, arguably one of his more popular, but fucking amazing tunes.

Me too. The first time I listened to the symphonic album game, I kind of felt under-whelmed. I'd heard so much hype about the games, and the other tracklists weren't as good as I was expecting. Kind of similar here, too.

The big-hitters always seem to come through, though.

yeah. for me tracklists go one way or the other: i like them or i don't. and when i say like, we're talking everything: song choice, execution, how well the theme/story was conveyed, etc.

i have a question for you phanan, since you run the thing now. have you ever had to have someone revise their playlist or anything because they broke one of the rules (going over their time limit, using two songs of the same artist, etc)?

It is a tiny part of the grade. Like I said before I mostly judge on the experience and you both had great experiences. I just liked his more.
