Ahh, OK. I can sort of make out what must be the bottom of them, but it's mainly just a blurry mass of pale blue and white for me. Though I suppose you were going for the pretentious effect in the parody ...

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.
Sadly, I only recognize about 1/3rd of it (sorta like how everyone is about my list this time).

Yeah, I definitely think DI II is the most accessible. The start of DI III is even more accessible, but then it just went really dark. To some extent, I intentionally made DI II to be accessible - I wanted to counter some of the stupid stereotypes of prog being nothing but wanky, soulless bollocks.

But of course.

I was going to start some recording for it tonight, but I slept less than 6 hours last night, and pretty exhausted.

I think your Desert Island 2 playlist is your best.

Anyway, so far I'd give BonoIsMyMuse a score just a bit below that I gave Khan/PFan.

How much of the first half do you recognise? I think you'd enjoy that half more than the second on a "songs" basis. I don't think there's much debate that the second half has the best of the atmosphere and flow though. One day, I'd like to stylistically bring both halves together somehow. I just don't listen to that much upbeat music.

Screwtape, I don't think you were around when I mentioned I'm working on a new DI tracklist. Not sure if it's one I'll submit, but definitely it's one I'll share with you. It's all about soundscapes. It's got a lot of work to go, but basically I am trying to make the most beautiful and transcendent playlist I can.

I was inspired by Alcest's Tir Nan Og when I was walking home on a beautiful evening a few days ago.

It appears that Axver is correct about Russian Circles. They are pretty awesome. I'm listening to Enter though, not Station.

The Finn-asscociated ones (though not the songs, just the fact that it's them), the ones that are on your DI this time (again, not the songs), Rush, The Edge, and Clannad.

My computer and interference seem to be enjoying one-another's company whilst I'm on break here. And on that note, I must leave.
