I'll be interested to hear Ax's reaction to Teenage Wildlife, since I'm almost sure he's never heard it.

I should enter a proper metal list.

Also, on your DI V list, I like how the Arcade Fire and Radiohead songs help really pick up the rockin' pace of things after the instrumental start. Good transition to up the tempo and shit. Plus, I like Electioneering.



I felt DI III was shithouse in terms of voter participation. DI in general seemed on the decline and I lost interest. I believe DI IV picked up a bit on the participation, hence restored faith.

I also never understood why you guys complained about group 4 so much. Tough group, yes, but that's not a bad thing.
It was my first taste of the full thing, and I didn't like it at all compared to the Symphonic Album game.

That's exactly what I was thinking: "Now's a good time to up the tempo and shit."

Only of the loudest and most soul-sucking sort, plz. :Pray:

I may actually have a chance if everyone's list is a pisstake.

Definitely not a bad Bowie track.

I'm rather enjoying your list so far.

I'll pull out some crazy 40s/50s list or something if you'd like

PFan, really good flow and cohesion so far. I'm just up to Don't Panic now.

The Time Goes Back > Don't Panic > Eleanor Put Your Boots On > Over the Hills and Far Away transition worked out well. I was pleased with it.

Certainly, though Eleanor is easily my least favourite song so far. I just found it pretty boring really.

I also enjoyed the benefit of being able to use songs less than three minutes long this time around since I had enough music to adequately fill out a list.

The ONLY part of my DI5 list that truly flows well is the second half, though a couple segues in the more rocking first half are inspired.

I think it's a nice, catchy pop song, but there's a far superior single edit of that song out there somewhere that I haven't been able to find in any form other than the music video for it.

I recall a bold horn transition at some point in your first half. That worked very well.

Yeah, that's one of the ones I'm talking about.

Mostly though, it's just a fun, competent set that breaks no ground. Honestly, I regret putting it together, but I shouldn't back out now. You guys liked it anyway.
