I just meanders far too much for me. I never could get into it.

I wouldn't deprive the album of EPAA's ending. It's great. Maybe edit the track down a bit, though I enjoy it as it is. MLK is the one track I'd be most inclined to discard, or at least rework so that it's UF's intro or Bad's intro/outro.

Oh, no, some of us have just made our lists and shared them already. I've LM, LMP, and PFan's to get through. Plus I need to upload a "draft" of mine for them to critique.

No, you're cool.

Hey fellas

I like "Elvis," but it does meander too long. It's still an interesting experiment though and packs a big punch at the end.

Ok, Ashley. Here we go.

Great start with The Promise. One of the better ones from the 80's. And of course Just Can't Get Enough is a classic.

I've never been a fan of ABC, but so far your flow between the songs is very good.

I love it, even though you can't really tell what Bono's saying.

Damn, sorry I didn't get back to your e-mail before you left. Hoping to finish before I fall asleep, but the clock's just passed 4am and I don't know if I will.

Have a good one, anyway!

Here Comes The Rain Again is a great song.

On to Voices Carry, which is another winner.
