Russian Circles remind me more of Explosions and Godspeed! though. The drumming was definitely stronger on that track.

15. Mew – “Comforting Sounds” – Frengers (8:53)
What a great track and a strong closer. I used to listen to Mew, mainly And The Glass Handed Kites, but hadn't played them in ages. I'd overlooked this song. Like Delays, this was a good re-introduction.

I'm listening to some The Sea, Like Lead to get what you guys are talking about. Anticline/Syncline is very good. Twilight Of The Gods, however, is terrible.

What's with the drum machine in the Anathema track? It's not that bad apart from that.

And from earlier ...

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

But I can listen to it anyway after the tracklist's done. Far better than the Prince songs the others have used. I sort of enjoy it. Though it's better that it's gone, as the flow is better without it.

It's definitely one of Prince's better tracks, but I still prefer his poppier stuff: Raspberry Beret, Little Red Corvette, 1999, Axver's favorite song...

I can't say I ever noticed that since, you know, they have a drummer so I assume it's all him.

It sounded like a drum machine at the beginning, with another guy drumming too.

Hard to hear it over the shouting and guitars at 11.

All told, phanan's tracklist is absolutely phenomenal. All of it comes together and works well to create a cohesive work. The first half is probably my favourite half in the tournament. The second half has some songs that aren't my thing, but that's OK and they function well in context for sure. I enjoy this second half much better than Screwtape's second half. I give this an A and rank it the best tracklist in the game.

Y'all. I think that somewhere in this thread we crossed the line. Who pushed us over? I know it doesn't matter to you all... but it matters to me.

We're cut adrift here in OOC, but I guess we're still floating. To be honest... I think I'm only hanging on to watch my post count go up instead of down.

I really disappeared into this thread, but you all disappeared from me. I gave you guys everything you ever wanted, but apparently it wasn't what you wanted.

Now time to check out what LM recorded for the fake DI V tracklist. This is going to be great.

I'm proud to have gotten my ass handed to me by him.
