I'm off, too. Gotta catch up on some sleep. Curious to see what Ax thinks of my playlist...

No, I start and finish every track to get the segues and at least some feel for it. The worst, I skip some of the middle though.

Axver, did you ever make it through my list, or are you prolonging the inevitable?

Damn, I was hoping you'd be around when I listen to it. Well, have a good night. Same to Vazza.

I'll listen to it after LMP's.

Maybe before, if you're going to be around.

I thought it was very well done. There are some damn fine songs there. You just can't appreciate the creativity in different approaches to the songs. Though I'm not surprised with your love of regular, radio friendly artists.

I'll be around for about another 3 hours, I'd say.

Just finished Major Panic's playlist. I like it as much as I liked Bono212's.

No. I hate the beginning. It is terrible.

Like U2, the reason we're all here?

OK, OK...

Perhaps the shitty, wall-of-noise style production and lack of dynamics was intentional. Either way, My Bloody Valentine's Loveless does the same thing 100x as well, and doesn't shove unsubtle political messages down your throat. And come on, I can't appreciate it because of my love for radio-friendly artists? The radio has been playing That's the Way (My Love Is) to death for ages. This isn't high art, it's Siamese Dream with no discipline.

You completed missed the point of the album. It sounds great stripped down. If it had a complex production then it would be Machina. I prefer this style. Billy writes heartfelt music. It isn't fucking My Bloodly Valentine. The album is beautiful in its anger and rage. I'm starting to doubt your musical tastes.

Bah, got a phone call that interrupted listening to this tracklist more.

Now I'm just starting Oasis's Let There Be Love.
