My serial killer mix. It's intended to be based upon the character Gabriel Gray/Sylar in the show Heroes, but I think it just about works as more general mix.

(After all, sci-fi/comic book creators have been using mutants and the like as allegories for decades.)

"It's important to you, being special?" "It's important to everyone." - Mr Bennet and Sylar, Fallout (1:11)

"I would say we both have a desire to be valued. My desire to be valued is manifested in cultivating relationships with my friends and family. Sylar's desire to be valued manifests itself... well, in a murderous rampage." - Zachary Quinto

01-04. Solitary, unfulfilled, lonely life.
05-07. All change - the stirrings of power/madness.
08-12. Enter: the psychopath.
13-16. Methods of madness. In the show, Sylar ah, cuts other "heroes" heads open and does something with their brains to acquire their powers. He's also quite a snaeky fellow.
17-19. The open ended power trip/God complex portion. I was aiming for some sort of peverted religious experience with "I See Monsters" and "Silence".

In hindsight I could've cut out at least one track per section, but my desire to pack as much as possible into 80minutes is a failing.

Cool concept. Brain Stew's one of the few Green Day songs I can still enjoy. I really like the Salty/Palindromes pairing.
