I've already listened to GibsonGirl's but haven't really found the time to listen to Axver's. I started last night but it was late and I find that I have to be in a particular mood to really sit through some of this music. It's not the music's fault, there's just something wrong with my mind.
that was great.

I'm trying to absorb it all...some of it is pretty intense! I listened to Axver's earlier on my mp3 player, and I'm now about halfway through GG's. I'm definitely being taken somewhere as I'm listening...hope I make it back in time to vote

(I just flew over Mr. Brau's place, and he gave me the middle finger ...)

Really? I find every playlist to be very unique.

Yes.

So I'm almost done listening to Axver's playlist...this time I actually listened to the whole thing through (GibsonGirl's I listened to over two days).

All this Prog while writing an 8-page biology exam review....

I had a bit of a harder time with a few of these songs, and I'm starting to realize that I really just don't like Rush.
However, tracks 22-30 have blown me away completely .

I don't know, this is really difficult...I really enjoyed both tracklistings so much and they're both so unique I don't think I can choose.
Maybe I should just finish listening to Axver's, sleep over it, and vote tomorrow morning.

Edit:
Axver, I *just* noticed the length of that last track.

You're not the only one.

The lists are certainly unique. But I think the prog sound overall is kinda consistent and a setlist consisting of it would benefit from some shaking up in between trax. That's why I think adding other stuff (whether it be U2, Ramones, Motown, whatever) would get more people interested in listening.

But I'm not complaining, because I love this stuff, and have no problem listening to a few hours straight. But I think after hearing all the lists, I'm progressively getting pooped out on it

I'm finding it that way...hopefully I can articulate it when I vote. I almost have to listen again to make any kind of judgement. Both are varied, unique, and enjoyable. I also have a sudden fondness for King Crimson

I'm also hearing Pink Floyd in pretty much everything. I guess I'm not discerning enough yet

I've been thinking the exact same thing, just didn't want to say anything because all these Prog freaks might jump me.

Prog fans are really nice. I think the extended keyboard solo's make us dosile.

For me its just that I can't sit through songs that long. Too deep. No offence but some of the songs go for ages.

What I find hilarious is that people will sit through 5-6 songs in 25 minutes, but if you get one song with the same amount of variation in that 25 minute period, they run in fear and whine about it being too long.

For some reason, I predict getting annihilated next round.

I'll refrain from voting for now. If Axver had Pink Frost (damnit) in his playlist it would have gotten my vote immediately. But it doesn't.

I think that's due more to being a novice when it comes to the progressive genre more than anything else. If that was explained better, it probably wouldn't be the case as much.

Case in point is Dark Side Of The Moon - it's really one track, a suite of songs all linked together. That goes on for 40 minutes. If one looked at it that way, it might change their thinking towards other long prog pieces.

I'll bet if Stranger In Your Soul was displayed as five or six separate tracks that formed a suite, it wouldn't get the initial reaction it sometimes gets.

I think I'm going to have to sit out the first round, since I won't have time to listen to everything before voting closes. This time of year, I don't like to leave my computer on overnight because of storms, so I didn't get both lists downloaded yet. I'll definitely still listen to both mixes, though. I'd forgotten that the playlists were four hours, or I would've gotten a head start on them over the weekend.
