Symphonic Album Mini-Game: Round 4, Heat 2

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second heat of the fourth 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 has Axver going up against the Supertracklist. Below are the playlists. An update on the standings will be posted after the completion of each round.

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.


Forum name: Axver



Life In One Chord

The harsh Cold War reality has been replaced by the fearful and corrupt War On Terror reality. In a bleak world of monotonous life in a rundown post-Soviet city, one man pours his soul into his guitar to avoid being trampled down and forgotten. It leads him into conflict: with the obstinate music industry, with the attitudes of friends and lovers, with the pressures of travel. But most importantly, it leads to conflict with the monolithic and monotonous reality and to a discovery of hope.

Headphones are recommended for best effect. Cover credit goes to LemonMacPhisto.

Tracklist Title: Just One Victory


I want to dedicate this playlist to someone on the board who is one of the bravest and kindest people I have ever met. I also want to dedicate it to everyone who has had a family member deal with alcoholism. It is a terrible disease. My thoughts are with everyone on Interference who has been affected by it.

This is a story about forgiveness, family and love. This is a story of a man trying to get that one victory over his alcoholism with the help of his daughter. It is surreal and symbolic. The song by song explanation can be found in the LJ entry. http://screwtape2.livejournal.com/9240.html

Embracing on a broken life. A victory that comes with a price. A life without fire and passion...is not worth living. Kill yourself before receiving...something out of all this screaming. Together lifeless creatures shall survive.

It's only human to die. A daughter without a father is dry. So in water let flames arise. It's only human to never rise...when one drowns the others shall die. So it is only human to take the dive. There will be no one left alive...if a daughter does not give her life. If a daughter does not give her life than it's murder. A father must see a human through the spirits that flow and survive. It's only human to learn through the pain of our children. Through the pain of a scarred daughter. Through the last breath in water...

1. Angelo Badalamenti - "Laura Palmer's Theme" -Twin Peaks (4:52)
2. The Smiths - "Meat Is Murder" - Meat Is Murder (6:07)
3. Blam Blam Blam - "There Is No Depression In New Zealand' - It's Bigger Than Both Of Us - NZ singles 1979-82 - Part 1 (3:18)
4. Cynic - "Veil of Maya [2004 Remix]" - Focus (5:21)
5. Utopia - "Freak Parade" - Todd Rundgren's Utopia (10:28)
6. REM - "Find The River" - Automatic For The People (3:49)
7. Orphaned Land - "Ocean Land (The Revelation)" - Mabool (The Story of the Three Sons of Seven) (4:43)
8. Pink Floyd - "The Niles Song" - More (3:26)
9. Peter Gabriel - "Intruder" - Melt (4:53)
10. Tori Amos - "Silent All These Years" - Little Earthquakes (4:11)
11. Aimee Mann - "Choice In The Matter" - I'm With Stupid (3:13)

Axver's gonna win at least two rounds -- twice his prediction!

I voted for Axver. The Supertracklist has more 5-star songs, but Axver's flows better.

Considering that the Supertracklist has done pretty decently in past rounds, I can't believe I'm leading 9-1 at the moment. Well, if the points differential comes into play, this is certainly quite handy.

Yeah, the Supertracklist did surprising well this time around. This win though will probably get you a wildcard which would be well deserved.

Psh, I won't need a wildcard if I take down you or cori. Both of you should watch your backs.
