I think you improved the word, actually.

Good morning, everyone.

Today I think I'll listen to Fear of a Blank Planet.

The two disc remaster is beautiful, but I would've used the lineup I posted before, and then on the second disc, have the alternate version of the title track by itself, or perhaps add Men Of Wood, too.

I put the songs together on my iPod the way I wanted, using Stars Die and Moonloop from the second disc (as they flow together) right after Phase 1, then continuing on with the rest. It works perfectly, I must say.
You know, I haven't heard Men Of Wood. But I believe it's on a compilation uploaded on a blog you linked to, so I'll have to check it out. I at least know Colourflow In Mind, which is interesting.

I'll have to give your tracklist a go. On paper, it looks like it should be fantastic. I take it that by the full Moonloop, you mean only the 16 minute version, not the 40 minute one?

Ride

Probably the best shoegazer album of all time. It's more consistent throughout than My Bloody Valentine.

Although Slowdive's Souvlaki is damn good, too.

Good man. The middle section of Anesthetize melted my face in Brisbane. Besides the fact that it rocks the fuck out in the first place, the sound in Brisbane was just perfect.

After how much I headbanged, no wonder I felt lightheaded after the gig.

Men Of Wood is on the Stars Die compilation. It's pretty good, although I can see why it didn't make the album. I don't think it fits anywhere.

For Moonloop, I'm using the version from Disc 2 of The Sky Moves Sideways, which is in two parts (Improvisation and Coda). I think I like that version the best.

Nowhere is my favourite shoegaze album, and one of my favourite albums of all time full stop. It's just incredible. I listened to Swervedriver's Mezcal Head for the first time tonight and it's fantastic too.

I don't buy the Loveless hype. It's good and I like almost all the songs, but it's not the be-all and end-all of shoegazing.

The opening trio of songs on Souvlaki are fucking superb.

Excellent, but this morning I gave the Punk and 90's alt stations a try.

I think Souvlaki, Whirlpool by Chapterhouse and Death of Cool by Kitchens of Distinction are my top three Shoegaze albums.

Souvlaki Space Station is up there with my very favourite songs.

Of course, Ride and MBV are quality acts too.

Never heard Swervedriver. I'll have to take a listen at some point.

I didn't buy Sleep Together as being all too great until I heard it live. Holy fuck, the band kicks the intensity up a notch. Great way to end the main set too. It's not a closer on the level of Trains or Halo, but it's close.

It's difficult to pick and choose what to listen to. All I know is that I want to get through all the studio stuff before I go through the live stuff.
