    Sofar so good, I had automatically gone to the mixtapes site a few hours ago, and must have just missed it by meer moments.

    I'm surprised there's no Barry Adamson with Set the Controls for the Heart of the Pelvis. ;)

    Also decent for annoying the neighbors while cleaning the house like a speed freak. Thanks.

    Found lots of "must listen to more of this" on this mix. Good one.

    Who is this guy who sounds exactly like Peter Gabriel? Oh.

    The Epoxies -> Devo transition works well. Don't worry about overusing "Uncontrollable Urge," it never gets old.

    This is my favorite mixtape since sometime in the teens. But then, I'm a sucker for trancey backing tracks with repetitive processed vocals, and that's verily the definition of "control".

    (I seem to recall some discussion of embedding metadata (id3?) in the mp3 stream so that a streaming player would be able to tell me the current title without me having to add up playtimes manually -- did anything come of that?)

    This one was awesome, though I'm surprised you didn't include "She's Lost Control" by Joy Division. Too trite?

    I love this "She Wants Revenge - Out of Control" track.

    If there were tools to trivially download streaming mp3 audio - and I'm not saying that there are - I would have listened to it about six times in a row by now.
