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.
The transitions weren't bad, and it served its purpose. Both sides served their purposes. Yours was a good list.

Holy Crap...my Di3 list had Collapse The Light Into Earth on it. I havent' heard that song in months...and now that I'm listening to it again, it must only be because I lost it and just got it back.

On to Wet Sand, my favorite RHCP track. I intended to use this for DI4, but Under the Bridge fit the flow much better (moved flawlessly into Ten Years Gone).

See, I didn't find it catchy, but that was mainly because the singer's voice doesn't appeal to me as well.

The Led Zep track was inoffensive. Onto RHCP now; not bad.

Well, I really do love the second half at least.

I drank Screwy's milkshake with that one.

You win some, you lose some. The enjoyment of the first few tracks couldn't have lasted completely.

Can't say Wet Sand had me convinced at the start, but it really picks up by the end and is great.

Unusual segue to One Foot In Heaven but it works.

The One Foot in Heaven bass line is boss. Well done, The Edge, well done.

Yeah, that song has a really strong outro.

It was an unbelievable pain trying to get some decent segues out of this upcoming section. I had some tips from LM factor into the mix here, as well.

But it gets full stride back with Pink Floyd.

PFan, I'm really enjoying this so far. If your tracklist keeps up like this, you may be in for a high mark from me, higher than you probably expect.

Your B+ for me last time was a huge surprise. Higher than that this time would surprise me even more.

I feel that this section probably is as good as it was going to get. It always comes down to the songs, and sometimes even the greatest of the great at sequencing can't bail themselves out if the songs simply won't go together. It's not bad, but probably the weakest section of your list flow-wise.

Yeah, pretty much how I feel. Just a bit of a stumbling block, especially Always Forever Now > Willing.

And then, So Divided is probably too long for its own good, but I like most of it and it has an odd but interesting transition into Pigs (Three Different Ones).
