You forget the individual taste aspect as well, from time to time.

Well, I just skipped the Regina Spektor track. Frankly, Britney Spears has more artistic merit than Spektor. Hell, I listened to more of the Backstreet Boys track in this playlist than the Spektor one (45 seconds vs <2 seconds).

I really don't like this song by The Moldy Peaches. The woman's voice in particular is grating.

Screwtape, are you questioning my tastes over this one album, or is there some context I'm missing?

The Juno soundtrack in general kind of sucked. It was way too precious and indier-than-thou. The film was good though.

I will admit to being a little stressed at the moment with life but you upset me when you questioned my musical tastes. Never question someone's musical tastes. It is just wrong. Then justify it with what the press says.

I admit, I barely even know what Juno is.

Yeah, not surprising. It's kind of lumped together with the whole Superbad scene. I wouldn't really recommend it to just anyone, but it was better than most teenage romantic comedies, for sure.

OK, so I listened to My Body Is A Cage by the Arcade Fire, and it's not bad, though I think it's weak at the start. And that finishes off Irishteen/Lemonchick's tracklist. Most of it flowed, though in a few points songs seemed forced or transitions didn't make sense. Not many songs stood out positively to me, many weren't that objectionable but pretty unremarkable, and some were purely bad. All in all, I give it a C.

Now onto LMP's. I'd like to do LM's as he's around, but I'd prefer to do LMP's as it's directly up against Irishteen/Lemonchick's right now, so I think back-to-back listening would be good. I plan to listen to LM and phanan's tracklists back-to-back this evening.

For the record, I don't expect you to spur me on to a great comeback. So no pressure.
