I have actually been single for a while now, I hate to admit, but this is kind of an attempt to break down my last break-up into three different stages.
Side 1 is supposed to be the pain that I felt when it first ended, that seems to last absolutely forever.
Tracks 1-10 on side 2 are supposed to represent the anger I felt after I realised what a waste of time the relationship had been.
Tracks 11-20 are not supposed to be getting over it, because I don't think I wholly am yet. They are supposed to represent a 'coming-to-terms-with' that I eventually reached.
It was originally on a mini-disc, so I've done my best to split it up. Hope you get the idea.

Great mix, really wonderful. I had to fight not to put any Reindeer Section on my mix, I felt like it admitted that I'm still really bothered by the break up, but it's perfect on yours....Excellent Idlewild

Terrific job capturing the moods. I can feel you misery all the way from here.
