though i enjoy almost all of the tracks on this compilation, the one that continually floors me is nimrod 33's masterpiece "barbed bed." an epic that uses barbara streisand's "woman in love" to great effect. he twists, manipulates and sometimes does absolutely nothing to pieces of the original, and what results is awe-inspiring and overblown in the best way possible. what a beautiful and twisted mind. nice tip-off in the title of the track as well.

im sure track 2 is a cover of a u2 tune, the one where the chorus goes "i will be with you again", it might be called new years day. actually the title "yearned ways" is an anagram of new years day. wow just worked that out while writing this. cool well done joni!!
