Oh god, Richard Hammond is now going to drive an F1 car. This should be good ...

And where are the other people who watch Top Gear anyway?!

Oh God, I love shows with stuff like that going on. I don't watch a lot of...I'm not sure how to describe those types of shows, but I don't watch a lot of them, shows that are on like the History Channel, and the Discovery Channel, but I do love Mythbusters.

I've a theory that James Blunt is not real, he's Rod Stewart wishing to relive his glory days, so he sang some songs, found a pretty face to lip sinc them, and took all the money.

Me too I'll find out in 3 minutes. On a side note, I find it funny that, as much as I say I love the Wall, my two favorite songs off of it are Mother and CN just because Gilmour sings on them

Ha. I think I've said before, the only songs I really care for are CN, Hey You, and Run Like Hell.

It wasn't perfect (the transition) but it wasn't bad either. And I haven't heard WFS in a long time....I love this song...especially because the piano in it reminds me of Tubular Bells which is, a f'n awesome "song"

Oooh WFS > Collapse, not so good without the crossfade (which, at LMP's suggestion, I turned off ), but it's good with it on.


And I love Collapse...LOVe it.

Oh yeah, Mythbusters is great. But it's funny, when it's shown instead of Top Gear, it feels like such a letdown because the Top Gear guys are so incredibly funny. Everybody I know who watches it couldn't give a shit about cars and would never ordinarily watch a car show, but these guys bring the lulz every single episode.

That seems remarkably plausible.

Hah, no, those three songs are good, and I think I found a couple that aren't too bothersome. But on the whole, the album bores me shitless.

Huh, really? I thought it'd work well. Also, crossfade is of the devil and I don't even know why the feature was invented.

Collapse is made of SuperWin.

His lap was hilarious. I loved how he randomly was observing the presence of some nearby plane rather than focusing on the track at one point.

I wish I would remember Mythbusters is on...pretty much ever. I haven't watched it in months as it is.

Yeah when his first (and only?) single came out, I was POSITIVE it was Rod Stewart..how wrong I was

I've already said a billion times why I like it, but I can see where it could come off as boring. I mean, it is long, and a little repetitive.

I only turn the crossfade on set at 4 seconds so I don't have to deal with gaps, ESPECIALLY when I'm listening to something like EITS or PF and the tracks are supposed to smoothly flow, but instead I get dead air.

There isn't enough Win to adequetly describe Collapse.


HA! Collapse > Within You, a Bowie track from The Labyrinth soundtrack

then that > Untitled 4 and that sounded really good.

Yes, this second cd WAS good. A few tweaks, and it should definitely be usable.
