This new Russian Circles album just keeps getting better. The third track is an amazing mix of great riffing and dark, beautiful atmosphere.

The first half of your playlist is really accessible. And then the ending with PT's song is great.

OK, Axver, tell me what you think of this cover:




Any suggestions?

Thanks. I actually thought this was the least accessible tracklist I've ever made. I was a bit surprised to see ... I think it was LMP say that he thinks I've fairly well stuck to the same style of music each tournament, as I think this one is quite a radical departure from anything I've done before, especially in the second half.

Yeah, that'll pass as a pretentious cover.

The fourth track on the Russian Circles album seems to be trying some new stuff for them, and it's working sensationally. The guitar from around 4:15 onwards sounds gorgeous. Around 5:05, you really expect it to kick up a gear into something heavier, but the restraint and avoidance of post-metal cliches just makes the playing even more beautiful. Ahh, 5:45, here comes the distorted guitar. Wow, that works really effectively.

Good.

The only other cover I've made so far is this rather enigmatic Sigur Ros parody:

Well, as I haven't been around for the previous DI's, I really have no idea what your playlists are generally like.

I hate to say it, LM, but I can't really tell much about that parody because my crappy eyes just blur over.

Her lists are always awesome. Or, at least to my taste, anyway. This one looks particularly great.

My past lists are up on phanan's site. DI III is I think the best I've ever made - I'm not sure I'll ever top the second half.

Unfortunately my Symphonic Island list isn't up (last time I looked anyway), as I think that's the second best one I've submitted.

It's not just your eyes; the picture is very blurry. I did it to achieve that particular coloring effect. Anyway, it has the same sausage shapes as the Sigur Ros cover.

HOLY FUCK RUSSIAN CIRCLES.

Station is without doubt one of the albums of 2008.

His list is much darker this time out. DI2 was probably his most accessible, this one his least.

It's all right so far. The flow is better than decent. I like the flow better than the songs--I've never liked Kings of Leon, that's for sure (that's where I'm at in the list now).
