Title taken from the Norfolk & Western song included in the mix. A girl I work with asked to be made a mix and this is what I came up with. I'm probably biased, but I really do believe that this sounds more even than it probably looks on paper - the transition between Songs: Ohia and Jesu in particular sounds better than I ever expected it to.

Not familiar with a lot of this, but 3-6 looks great. And if 20-21 is the coupling that gets your emphasis, it must be fantastic in comparison. Nice job.

I should maybe clarify that I don't know if that particular coupling works better than the rest, I am just impressed with it because it isn't [i]supposed[/i] to work (the two songs coming from very different styles), yet it does. But thanks for the nice comment!
