Frank Sinatra - This mix is somewhat arbitrary. I kind of picked the songs and hit random. Also, no single disc can ever really do justice to Frank's legacy.

1. My Way
2. Come Fly With Me
3. Get Happy
4. Send in the Clowns
5. Theme from 'New York, New York'
6. Witchcraft
7. It Was a Very Good Year
8. My Funny Valentine
9. Strangers in the Night
10. I've Got You Under My Skin
11. Oh! Look at Me Now
12. Love and Marriage
13. Fly Me to the Moon
14. All or Nothing at All
15. Come Dance With Me
16. The Lady is a Tramp
17. That's Life
18. In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning
19. The Way You Look Tonight
20. Luck Be a Lady
21. Night and Day
22. I Get a Kick Out of You
23. The Last Dance
24. My Kind of Town

If the song titles are any indication, this is one hell of a band. I should check them out. I've been meaning to for a long time.

I highly suggest it.

Start with their most recent album: At War with the Mystics, then The Soft Bulletin, Clouds Taste Metallic, Yoshimi..., Transmissions..., and then go on from there.

yeah, I never agree with myself after. God Willing is good, I'm regretting not putting Tomorrow's Industry on a little more, though. And I've never been disappointed by anything trad. they've done. What I'm really tempted to do is reburn it with Tomorrow's Industry in place of Shattered or something else, and with the reworking of "Forever" instead of the original. I love the arrangement, but I hate that Ken's voice is so so so high in the mix and you can barely hear Al. Which may be the clincher for me. Have you heard the new version of "Forever"? It's just a studio version of the live arrangment they've been the past few year's.

My overall impression of the album is quite good - there are no songs that I dislike, really, but at the same time it doesn't leave me with the feeling the last three albums have. That said, "State of Massachusetts" kicks "Sunshine Highway" in the balls as a lead single, and I loved SH. It'll be interesting to see what stuff survives the setlist over the next few years. I'm still kicking myself over not seeing them with FM 2 weeks ago in Philly.

you know, i don't think i've heard that studio version of "forever." now i'm wondering how i missed it.

i've never had too much issue with ken's vocals, but for some reason they bug me on "johnny i hardly knew ya." whereas i think "god willing" might be my favorite song off the album (or at the very least, tied with "vices and virtues"). it's not so much the traditional stuff vs. the original, i think (f)lannigan's Ball and fairmount hill sound great (and i can't think of any traditional songs they've done in the past that i've disliked). given the options, i will take something like "the gauntlet" or any straight up punk rock number with bagpipes a la "buried alive" over something like "captain kelly's kitchen" and the like. but...what was i saying? oh yeah, i don't what it is but "johnny" annoys me. even when they kick it into badass full-band mode, i just can't get too into that song.

the state of mass does kick SH off the map, and i also liked the latter song quite a bit.

i think i know what you're saying about it not having whatever it was that the last few albums had. i read through the lyrics to "shattered" before hearing the song, and i liked them. as opposed to the token hardcore song on albums in the past, musically i just don't think it works. i think the lyrics are stronger than a lot of the other songs they've done, that's sort of how i feel about the album on a whole, but i thought "citizen CIA" was a lot better. can't stand the way they repeat stuff like "neanderthals". just ruins the song. i'll take "10 years of service" or any of the other similarily themed songs over "tomorrow's industry." heh, i guess when all is said and done what my simple mind really like best is something anthemic that will stick in my head and i can scream along to.

Here's my set of Porcupine Tree compilations. The tracklists aren't final, especially in terms of tweaking the running order, but I think they're strong in musical content. Each tracklist deals with a distinct era of the band.

Disc 1: Let The Clocks Relapse (late 80s to 1998)

1. Signify
2. Jupiter Island
3. Waiting Phase One
4. Synesthesia
5. Dislocated Day
6. The Moon Touches Your Shoulder
7. Every Home Is Wired
8. The Joke's On You
9. The Sky Moves Sideways Phase One
10. Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape
11. Stars Die
12. Fadeaway

Disc 2: These Songs Will Be My Tracks (1999-2001)

For track #6, I actually favour the re-recorded version that was a bonus track on the US edition of Deadwing over the original on Lightbulb Sun.

1. Lightbulb Sun
2. Piano Lessons/Stupid Dream
3. Four Chords That Made A Million
4. This Is No Rehearsal
5. Stranger By The Minute
6. She's Moved On
7. Disappear
8. The Rest Will Flow
9. Buying New Soul
10. In Formaldehyde
11. A Smart Kid
12. Even Less (full 14 minute Recordings version)
13. Stop Swimming

Disc 3: Black Across The Sun (2002 to present)

1. Fear Of A Blank Planet
2. Way Out Of Here
3. Blackest Eyes
4. Drown With Me
5. Lazarus
6. Mellotron Scratch
7. The Sound Of Muzak
8. Trains
9. Anesthetize
10. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I might have to do a PT compilation like that. Great job.

Although I like most of what you have there, I'm surprised by a few omissions:

No Radioactive Toy on Disc 1.

No Feel So Low on Disc 2.

No Collapse The Light Into Earth on Disc 3.

And I prefer the original She's Moved On, but the newer version is also well done.

But that's the beauty of homemade compilations - seeing how others compare to what you would do.

I deleted all of my mixes to make new ones. The Radiohead one is now extremely difficult after In Rainbows. Not only do they have an odd number of albums, but there are so many worthy songs from In Rainbows that I might have to stick half of the Kid A tracks on the OK Computer/Bends disc or completely on there.

This is quite the pickle.
