As for me, I've been listening to Ashley's playlist today. Loved the first part, which is probably not a surprise coming from me. You get extra props for including The Hooters and Men At Work. And I thought the songs went well together. I'd say the only transition that was a bit awkward was Metric -> Okkervil River. And great job ending with Wallflower. An unheralded gem from him.

I'm already through a little of your second part, and will comment more shortly.

I was really hoping you of all people would comment specifically on the Springsteen track. For one reason or another I thought you'd get a kick out of that.

Well, I figured people get sick of me praising Springsteen all the time...

But yes, great track. I've said all along that, while I enjoy most of The River, the outtakes are far superior to some of the stuff he ended up throwing on there. I Wanna Be With You, Loose Ends, Take 'Em As They Come, Where The Bands Are, Restless Nights, Roulette...it just goes on and on. What he did during that time is quite amazing.

I'm almost through with your playlist. Really digging the second half here. The start was ok, but it really picked up towards the middle. I liked how you paired Doves and U2 with Big Country and Dave Matthews. That Big Country album is great; I almost put Chance on mine, but it missed the cut (although it might pop up on DI8). Also, I haven't cared for much of Dave Matthews for a long time, but I maintain that Crash is the best thing he ever did, and Two Step is an old favorite. This stretch from Doves to U2 was a highlight.

People are going to be sick of Teardrop by the time they get to my list.

I think I like your placement of it better than mine though.

I finished a while ago. The last four songs together was also very good. In fact, going from U2 to Röyksopp was better than I thought it would be, and since I liked that section as well, it turned out to be a very strong run there.

Overall, I think this is the best one you've done yet. You might have even exceeded your other half this time. No small feat!

When is that one getting posted?

About 10 days to 2 weeks after the start of this one.

Hopefully we don't develop a Teardrop situation with Kingdom of Rust, as both Ashley and I have used that track.

Nah, just kidding. I'm looking forward to seeing what you throw in.
if you're disappointed with it, let me know, i'll throw in the West Coast theme song as an addendum, rezip it, and get it out to you

Just finished Ashley's. The 80s is not at all my style, so I definitely prefer the second part of the playlist. But it's very well constructed, good flow and all.

This playlist pretty much confirmed that I just don't get Joy Division and New Order, though.

Neither does she. That being said, it's fucking Disorder, man. There's no reason not to love that song.

It's a fact. I can't stand Joy Division for the most part.

any reason, Ashley, why the album for Start a War was listed as "The Exact Opposite of a Death Metal Christmas"?

that's a pretty hilarious fuck up if my computer's gone and done that.

That was the name of Axver's Yuletide Exchange List I made him two years ago, and I saw that I forgot to change the album title after I'd already uploaded it, and I'm lazy.

ohh... righto!

just starting tourist's list. i'm home at the moment, so i'll get a bit of a diary going here.

good start, always liked this song! reminds of this bit of British sketch humour.

brilliant start. plenty of energy in Simon/Garfunkel song, though i'd never heard it.

do my ears lie - or is this Love orchestral ending to A Day in the Life slightly different to the Sgt Peppers version? not that it matters, one of the best songs there is, nonetheless.

and Andrew is coming quickly into contention. Shangri-La proves to me that there could be many a Kink song to check out, though i'm pretty content with current collection, which contains Lola.

All Things Must Pass remains a must-get album after this tune. Beck continues to endear himself unto me.

This Matt Bertringer's voice is not nearly so off-putting as many have said. The National are perhaps another band to check out.

Great momentum. i'll continue the rest once i get back from my lil' catch-up date.
