4. Semisonic – “If I Run” – Across The Great Divide (4:17)
This is better than I remember it being. This tracklist's songs are working together quite well at this early stage too.

5. U2 – “The Fly” – Achtung Baby (4:29)
One of U2's top 15 songs. I also don't think its mixing is as bad as PFan thinks. It leaves tracks like Zoo Station, UTEOTW, and So Cruel for dead in any case.

6. My Bloody Valentine – “Only Shallow” – Loveless (4:20)
One of the better My Bloody Valentine tracks and a good choice. I don't think they were the height of shoegaze as some people think, but they're still pretty good.

7. Prince – “The Cross” – Sign ‘O’ The Times (4:45)
N/A - cut by phanan.

8. God Is An Astronaut – “Sunrise In Aries” – Far From Refuge (3:52)
Really good. I need to check out Far From Refuge ASAP.

9. The National – “Mistaken For Strangers” – Boxer (3:31)
First band I'm not familiar with. Not bad. Fits well in the tracklist.

10. Band Of Horses – “The Funeral” – Everything All The Time (5:22)
Another band I've never heard before but heard of a fair bit. I suppose my feelings on this are pretty similar to the last track: I don't think it's bad and it fits well. This tracklist really does come together very cohesively.

Not like I normally do this. But you folks are letting the thread go dead so I'm doing my part to save it. Epic phail for the rest of you.

11. Midnight Oil – “The Dead Heart” – Diesel And Dust (5:11)
Not entirely convinced the transition works that well, but who cares when this song owns so bloody much. Somebody should go set up a huge sound system outside John Howard's house at 5am in the morning, crank up the volume, and put this on a continual loop.

Though Howard's so stuck in his attitudes that it might prove to be a, uh, Useless Loop.

Thank you, I'll be here all week.

Are you ready for my running re-assessment of your list, Axver?

I'm re-grading my stuff and figured yours would be a good start.

I'll start when you finish w/ Phanan's.

This'll be interesting. I expect it to go down.

And I've got a fair way to go with phanan's. Start now if you'd like. Keep the thread ticking over.

After having more of a life than I expected the last few weeks, I'm enjoying doing sweet fuck-all this weekend.

12. R.E.M. – “Cuyahoga” – Life’s Rich Pageant (3:42)
This tournament's had plenty of REM songs I don't know. Although I DO know this one, it's not one I've paid much attention to. Now I'm wondering why.

That's one of my favorite REM songs.

13. The Delays – “Long Time Coming” – Faded Seaside Glamour (3:57)
Haven't listened to Delays in a while. This comes as a bit of a welcome re-introduction.

PS They're just called Delays. Not The Delays.
