Well, if everyone was picking the same set of songs, it might indicate that there is a large chunk of material on these records that ain't all that good.

However, I'd say most songs, apart from, I dunno - "Gone" - have been chosen by a number of people - and the tracklists are wildly different. So maybe we don't all collectively dislike these records are much as we think.

I still hold to the idea that Avocado is a steaming turd. The songs themselves have some vague potential, but they all sound horrible on that record, and no matter how hard I try - I just can't get into any of it. But you guys seem to be giving it serious love on your tracklists...


Maybe people had the same problem I did; finding 12 songs quality enough to make a record that could stand with their other stuff. Even with 12 choices, I had to pick some songs with pretty big issues.

1 Pendulum
2 Severed Hand
3 Life Wasted
4 Worldwide Suicide
5 My Fathers Son
6 Johnny Guitar
7 Parachutes
8 Sirens
9 Lightning Bolt
10 Infallible
11 Come Back
12 Sleeping By Myself

Something like that. It was too difficult to fit in more Backspacer - I feel like they improved on the best Backspacer ideas on Lightning Bolt.

Yeah. I couldn't put together a mix of 12 songs I'd make it more than halfway through. I would veer towards thinking it meant the opposite, there are so many different songs being picked because there are just that few good songs to start with. I mean, did anyone have a tough time with the last few tracks because they were like "OH MAN I CAN'T LEAVE OFF THAT SONG, IT'S JUST TOO TOO GOOD!"?

I've tried doing this a few times and given up, largely because I have a tough time combining the self-titled material with that of the later records.

I hadn't given thought to making it a compilation of my favourite 12 songs from those records, though - that would end up being quite different to my attempts to curate a well-flowing mix (that still excludes any songs I really don't care for).

You can have the 8-9 leftover slots from my 12 song mix.

Actually I had 20 songs I was choosing from, so your 8 slots is just what I needed.

WHAT A TEAM!

Harder than I originally thought...


1. Pendulum
2. My Father's Son
3. Got Some

4. Infallible.
5. Forces of Nature
6. Unthought Known

7. Amongst the waves
8. Speed of Sound
9. Mind Your Manners

10. Comatose
11. Yellow Moon
12. Inside Job

Also, loving all of the Pendulum openers. Guess quite a few people are yearning for the No Code style opener. haha

This. S/T doesn't fit with Backspacer or Lightning Bolt.

My dad would say, that Kevin Davis is one sharp cookie. And I'd say, but dad why on earth is that a good thing? Who wants to eat a sharp cookie? Then my dad would drink vodka and roll his eyes.
