I've been monkeying around with this for a few weeks, and finally landed on a sequencing that works much better for me:

Who Ever Said
Never Destination
Quick Escape
Dance of the Clairvoyants
Alright
Retrograde
Seven O'Clock
Take The Long Way
Comes Then Goes
Buckle Up
River Cross

Why it works:

I've left off SBWM because it hurts my ears. But I still needed a punchy number in the #2 spot, and Never Destination works perfectly as a lighter, breezier followup to Who Ever Said.

I've swapped the sequencing of Quick Escape and DOTC, and I think it flows much better having three rock songs up front, with increasing level of psychedelic effect, before pivoting into the more ambient DOTC and Alright.

Retrograde gets a BIG upgrade in closing out side A, and the thunderous outro segues perfectly into the opening moments of Seven O'Clock, which kicks off side B.

Going straight from Seven O'Clock > TTLW works great, and I actually think TTLW feels a bit bolder without Never Destination working to ramp things up first.

I've then swapped Comes Then Goes and Buckle Up, because I think the latter works better as a light little pick-me-up after the weightiness of the former.

Unlike the official track listing, I'm not so fatigued by this point that I don't have the energy for River Cross. Cutting SBWM certainly helped in that regard, but also this all generally flows much nicer to my ear, and River Cross doesn't feel like the chore it does at the end of the official sequencing.

Mine is pretty much the same with SBWM included as I love that song


Who Ever Said
Super blood Wolfmoon
Dance of the Clairvoyants
Quick Escape
Alright
Retrograde

Never Destination
Seven O'Clock
Take The Long Way
Buckle Up
Comes Then Goes
River Cross


Retrograde closes out side A really well

Seven Oclock is strong enough to squeeze in between ND and TTLW and not get lost. It’s actually makes those three songs stronger.

I like how Buckle Up leads into Comes Then Goes so I’ve left them as they are.

Keen to try an edited version of above. The Ed songs on this album aren't fairing well with me.

I just tried this and the first three were BANGING but TTLW into DOTC was so jarring for me that it pulled me right out of the experience; I'll listen to the rest later!

There are a few transitional sounds between songs in the official tracklist that kind of mess up this experiment a bit, just in terms of being able to listen back to it and having it feel seamless.

But conversely, WES > Never Destination, and Retrograde > Seven O'Clock both work really well because of this

Which song is it that has the same ambient sounds at the beginning that Dance has at the end? Anyone tried putting those to together?
