    The styles are mixed, altho there's almost no hard rock, rap or prison songs. It's not a best of 2004.Includes an interview with the creator of the mix, Finch Platte. Also contains deleted scenes not seen in theaters! Almost 3 minutes of bonus footage! Laser-etched graphics!

    Want one? Lemme know. I have a couple of extras. I don't care if you can trade, or if you just got something (disc-wise, smart ass :p ) from me.

    Edit: No idea why it's Astonishing.

    Cool. Do you have one (or more) of their albums? I have The Egg, and I like it, but it doesn't capture their live energy. Jar, Rae, and I have talked a little bit about Shiner, and I'm looking forward to hearing that track.

    Nice call on those Finger Eleven and Billy Talent tracks. And this morning, I just added that Keane album to my wish list.

    I'd like a copy please. And although I know that you never require anything in return, the Law of Reciprocity rules...I should have a few things to send you in return, shortly.

    Tanks.

    The disc I have is called lula divinia. The sticker on it says, "Kansas City's Shiner deliver HEAVY, melodic indie music like that of HUM, CASTOR, FAILURE and UNWOUND."

    It really seems to be something I'd like, but I haven't listened to to it enough, yet. Still, I'd like to check yers out. If I boin you a copy of mine, will you do the same?

    Thanks-

    Lyrics to...
    ...Simple Kid's Staring At The Sun, so I don't have to Google 'em later.

    Well I started out strong and my hopes were high
    Figured on being like Bonny and Clyde
    25 beers is an alibi
    had to get connected
    So I wrote a long letter to a government man
    Told him I was born in the summer of Sam
    He said son i dont think that you understand
    just want to get elected
    But my heart got heavy and my hair grew long
    Had to take a job just to get along
    I was down in the gutter below
    I was down in the gutter below
    As my daddy always said - sing a song
    how hard can it be just to get along
    He said don't go sellin your soul
    said dont go sellin your soul

    Hey man - you know - what's up - too slow feels like im staring at the sun
    i get high - i get low - dont let you e-go
    out there staring at the sun
    staring at the sun

    well i gotta lotta love for the modern man
    i read alotta books that i dont understand
    I want a lot of things that are lost or stole
    just wanna hooker with a heart of gold
    cuz my heart gets heavy and my hair gets long
    hard gotta be just to get along
    well ya dont go sellin your soul
    just dont go sellin your soul
    hey man - you know - whats up - too slow
    feels like im staring at the sun
    i get high - i get low - dont let your e-go out there staring at the sun
    staring at the sun

    now baby i love you
    when springs in the air
    but it just seems that lately its spent dancing
    and smoking pot
    and wondering how we got so
    focked-up

    hey man you know
    dont let your e-go
    feels like im staring at the sun
    hey man you know
    dont let your e-go
    feels like we're staring at the sun
    hey man you know
    dont let your e-go
    feels like were staring at the sun
    hey man you know
    dont let your e-go
    out here we're staring at the sun
    staring at the sun

    I must be sheltered
    Out of your whole 2 comp list, I recognize but one band and that's only because a disk was sent to me by mistake. I thought Snow Patrol was not too bad after a few listens before I passed it on to the correct recipient.

    I guess these comps are best left for those in the know.

    Hey, fp.
    This looks like one that will broaden my horizons. Disc 1, especially looks interesting after your post of that band's lyrics.........something about smoking pot & staring at the sun.....also, the title has me completely intrigued.
    Thanks-a-ton,
    Bill
