Yeah, I can't believe I got this far behind. I've downloaded some of the others, though, and plan to listen to as many as possible over the weekend.

I'm sure you have some early Kiwi music that would seem hokey to me, too.

That song is one of his oldest, and his sound changed and continued to develop as he went along. I can see how it's not everyone's cup of tea.

I've actually been listening to your playlist this morning, LM, and I must say, you did a very good job.

I anticipate voting for it.

Eventually.

Oh, we certainly have our hoky Kiwiana, but I don't go for any of it. New Zealand music took bloody forever to find its feet. Then we had the Dunedin explosion of 1980-1995 and expats like me get to tout it as the "greatest lost music scene ever" or something like that.

And I hate to say it, but I've simply given up on BIMM's tracklist. As I explain over on the DI thread, the music and my tastes simply do not meet. I cannot even fairly rate the tracklist because this just isn't anything that even interests me. If I were forced to give a letter rating, it would be something like a D, which it doesn't deserve because that would imply it's bad when it's not - all of what I heard flowed and everything seemed to belong together. The music for the most part just lacks appeal for me.

So:

1. Screwtape: A/A-
2. AtomicBono: A-
3. PFan: B/B+
N/A. BonoIsMyMuse: Unrated

Believe it or not, I voted for you in each and every match you had last year. This year, it won't, but your list still looks great.

When I get up in the morning, I'll give your playlist a spin and do a running diary if you're around.

Hopefully I won't give up on it.

On paper, phanan's looks fucking fantastic. But then, two factors make me very biased in this regard:

1. Piano Lessons is my favourite Porcupine Tree song. Speaking of which, PORCUPINE TREE IN MELBOURNE IN A WEEK FUCK YES.

2. He used Midnight Oil's The Dead Heart. I've been obsessed with that song lately and I nearly forced it into my list. I'm glad I didn't, because it would've made no sense!

Well, I would appreciate it if you didn't. Hopefully, there will be enough tracks of your taste to keep you hanging around. It's got a pretty large concept that ties it all together too, so maybe that will help.

I recall you really liking my DI3 entry.

It will be interesting to see how our group turns out.

I can already tell you I'm going to skip that Spoon song. It was in the part of BIMM's tracklist that I played. And it reminded me why I think Spoon are a bunch of talentless hacks who probably think they're clever.

You know, now that Pink Floyd Survivor is over, I really wish there were enough interest to do a Porcupine Tree Survivor. I'd enjoy that a whole lot.

Group 4 is too strong this year. Personally, I think a couple of us should have been shuffled over to group 3 in exchange for some of the newer players to make things more even. As it is, some great lists are inevitably going to get screwed over because of the static 2-per-division playoff system. Group 1 and 2 look fine to me.

Believe me, I know. I certainly didn't want to be in Group 4.

But I pulled names out of a hat, to eliminate any bias. I thought that was the most fair.

There would probably be only three or four of us who'd be involved, unfortunately.
