Cory Alan wrote a [blog] a few weeks ago about making MFR mix CDs, and I’ve been pondering more seriously since then about what a MFR compilation might aim for. A good mix should introduce everybody in an order that makes sense musically, and perhaps chronologically. What if we took a song from every release, in reverse order; beginning with the newest?
(I realize that Lone Wolf, Robot Creep Closer’s EP, and Benjamin Axeface’s EP aren’t out yet… but for the future’s sake, let’s include them for discussion.)
I’ve done my list, and posted it in comments below (with a couple question marks). The albums in reverse order are listed below, to help jog your memory. I expect to actually burn a fair number of these mixes, so weigh in with your thoughts and ideas – if you like, you might even use the same (or a similar) list for your friends.
