Volume Three

Posted on December 15, 2004

My favorite of the three compilations. My only criteria were that the songs flow well from one to the next—whether an unexpected change or not—and to try to limit artist repeats. Also, while unintentional, I feel the songs do create a bizarre sort of emotional narrative arc throughout which is a happy byproduct.
