Headphones Recommended: Amidst Hell & High Water

This one took some doing. A few weeks ago, I perused the 'ol recently played list & threw all the songs I liked onto the playlist I set aside for this compilation. Found my jaw slightly a gap when I saw the total time exceeded 4 hours. It took a couple of weeks to whittled it down to 80 minutes, a very excruciating & emotional task at times.

To top it off, I kept adding more songs...such is the price of having so much new music on hand. It seriously took 3 days to break below the 2 hour mark. There was a lot of eliminating songs, listening to the comp, re-adding songs, eliminating other songs, re-listening, repeat. Even today I switched out the Wye Oak song w/ the one I just listened to earlier.

All in all, turned out to be a really fun process, & I'm very happy w/ the results (especially considering I've listened to most of these songs at least 5 times over the last week).

It is my hope you start this only to realize you've lost 80 minutes after the last track fades.
