    If you could make a Motorpsycho Anthology album what would be your tracklist?

    For the purpose of this thread it has to be 2CD and the time length of each disc can range from anywhere just short of 60 minutes to just short of 80 minutes.


    A similar thread has already been discussed here but the final product ended up as a extended (and excellent) 4CD compilation.

    A 2CD compilation would be a breeding ground for some interesting discussions, suggestions, fistfights and broking hearts but the end result nevertheless turn out incomplete because of the fast amount of excellent songs our Norwegian friends have recorded.

    I bet you can fill three or four 2CD’s that are equally compatible.

    Well, back in 1977 NASA launched Voyager 1 and included 2 Voyager golden records with only 27 compositions.

    If NASA can make a selection so can we :!:

    Good luck



    My inspiration, besides Motorpsycho being a new favorite band that I just started getting into this year, is that a forum that I regularly post on is doing a Fan-made “BEST OF” PROJECT — All are welcome! Pick your band, make your own Best Of or Anthology! The rules I picked for this thread are their rules

    The thread that you mentioned is helpful and so is this thread about “your all time favorite MS track”.

    But if you all would like to give the 2CD anthology challenge a try, please go ahead even if there was a similar post. Not enough people tried in that post anyways :)


    Well, being the Neil Young fanatic I am, I made two playlists a couple of days ago. The first is called – (minus) and the second is called + (plus), it’s basically chilled acoustic vs the more heavy stuff. I hope you’ll enjoy it, even if it’s awfully OT. I’ve attempted to make several MP playlists, but it’s darn difficult. Now I’m listening to

    1. Plan #1

    2. Sterling Says

    3. True Middle

    in the spirit of Matt Burt!





      And now it has become increasingly harder to make an MP playlist in Spotify, because quite a few of their albums have now been removed (with the exception of the Voices material and the newest Rune stuff)


      When I was REALLY getting into MP and work was getting tough to stay at and my marriage was falling apart I listened to almost nothing but MP. And I found at work this mix disc I made finding it’s way into the player time and again. I don’t claim it as an “Anthology” and it’s pre-Kenneth, but here it is.

      1. One More Saturday Night

      2. What If…

      3. Theme De Yo Yo

      4. One More Daemon

      5. B.S.

      6. Landslide

      7. You Lied

      8. Heart Attack Mac

      9. Step Inside



      12.Have Fun

      13.For Free


      15.Composite Head


      Another comp. When everything really went into chaos I put together a disc. It was labeled “Catharsis” for when I needed my insides torn out.

      1. Vortex Surfer

      2. Manmower

      3. Taifun

      4. Plan #1

      5. True Middle

      6. Fools Gold (Rockefeller ’96 version)

      7. Giftland

      Jesus, what a Heart Trip.

      Wow, great list and front-cover!

      Just love it that you created the Anthology on Grooveshark!


      I will listen to it in the next few days (and days after) & in the mean time create my own 4CD compilation tracklist on Grooveshark.

      Thanks for the effort!



        great job and thanks for sharing! I think i've never heard Nature's way before. :-)


          did you master this stuff somehow? or is my record player setup so weak? i wonder because…. maybe it's my pc set up with the tannoy speakers, here I hear things and frequencies I haven't heard before. especially in Lighthouse Girl 8O


          I'm not supposed to admit it for legality purposes but I jacked up the volume on lots of the songs (basic mp3 gain or amplify in Audacity). I used a brickwall limiter (Aradaz MAximizer 5 – a VST plugin for Audacity) to jack up the volume on songs where some parts are a lot quieter than other parts – just so that I could make the quiet parts a little bit louder (but not too loud).

          If you worked with Audacity before you would understand that amplifying the volume will only allow you to go as high as the tallest sound wave in the song – anything higher would cut that sound wave up. That's when you have to use a brickwall limiter to keep boosting the volume of parts of a song without clipping the loudest parts of the song. But for all intents and purposes the quiet parts are quieter for a reason – I don't overdo using the brickwall limiter.

          I also cut off the end of Lighthouse Girl just so that Disc 2 would fit under 80 minutes for a burnable cd. I cut off the silent parts at the end of a few other songs as well. For instance, on my mp3 version of Disc 3, 30/30 flows directly into Mad Sun with no transition. (I probably should of jacked up the volume of mad sun more-so though). Anyways, I fiddled around with the volume of my uploaded .mp3s because when I burn these discs for the car I don't want to have to mess around with the volume knob while I'm driving. I rather all the songs be approximately the same loudness (with the exception of Motorpsycho's intentional quiet parts which I didn't change too much).


          some days Grooveshark works flawlessly but some days it loads really slow for no good reason
