Symphonic Album Mini-Game: Round 3, Heat 2

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second heat of the third round of the Symphonic Album Mini-Game. The object of this game is to see which forum member can create the best concept album no longer than 80 minutes.

This heat features LemonMacPhisto and CuteIrishBono. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each tracklisting flows, leave your e-mail address and we'll help you out.

Awakenings

This playlist is basically a hybrid concept album/film idea I've been tinkering with for a while, so what better way to finish it up here? It's a sci-fi-style idea (hence the 2001 and Star Wars references in the cover) about an astronaut lost in space who lands on an emotionally repressed planet in the classic Logan's Run/THX-1138 vein (with the Big Brother government and all). During his stay, he falls in love with a woman and they both experience love for the first time. This ideal awakens all of the repressed emotions in the rest of the people (hey, Awakenings!) and they finally strike back against the tyrannical government, oh man, it's pretty badass. In the end, the astronaut returns home with his girlfriend leaving the planet and its people finally at peace. It'll all make sense when you listen to it, I hope. It sounds a lot better in my head.

(Side note: If this were a movie, the astronaut would be Christian Bale, the girl would be Scarlett Johansson, the evil overlord would be Ralph Fiennes, the bad guy's main flunky is Tim Roth, the resident badass other than the astronaut would be Samuel L. Jackson, and some of the other characters are Zooey Deschanel and Ewan McGregor (partially making up for the eternally-shitty "The Island").

2. Pink Floyd - "Astronomy Domine" - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (4:12)

11. Massive Attack - "Teardrop" - Collected (5:30)
12. The Beatles - "Within You, Without You / Tomorrow Never Knows" - Love (3:07)
13. Radiohead - "You and Whose Army?" - Amnesiac (3:09)

The Easy and the Fun Life of Road Trips

It's a perfect C.D. to listen to on a road trip. Imagine cruising in the car with the window open to the sky, feeling the wind blowing on your face, looking at the gorgeous trees, with nothing better to do but listen to this C.D. with its ambient acoustic and chilling vibe. This C.D. captures the simpleness and the little things in life that makes life have its meaning and excitement. It mixes a good selection of classic oldies and today's wonderful indie and alternative tunes. This C.D. is the C.D. to listen to when you are driving and you want to pump up your stereo.

This is a tough match and probably one of the hardest of the entire game to decide. LMP had better songs but CuteIrishBono had a better experience. I have to go with CuteIrishBono though either one deserves to win this match. Good luck to the both of you!

LMP for this one. I must say, his closer is perfect.

LMP here.

I still can't believe that I beat him. Or how I beat him.

It was more that I was down 5-2 that was shocking.

LMP's got one of the best concepts in the game, so he'll be going deep in the tourney with it, methinks.

I got to hand it to LMP he has one amazing list. But my C.D. flows pretty well and has the same sort of rhythms throughtout the whole experience. Please someone just vote more me at least one more time, so at least I have a chance to get in one of the wildcards.

Even if it doesn't work out here, you could be successful in future editions. Lemonchick went from getting knocked out early her first time to be a near unstoppable in this one. So if it doesn't work out, keep trying. That goes for everyone.
