Ok, well, I never should have made this CD. Too many of these songs depress me far too much. But at the same time, they're some of the most beautiful songs that I know. Evaporated, A Case Of You, Any World...some of the most well-written songs I've ever heard. But yeah, if you've ever had any sort of issue with love gone wrong, or unrequited, or just the feeling that things just aren't right, this is a great (terrible?) mix. As a side note, it's a bit thematic, and if you listen to the songs in the right sort of way, it tells a story from beginning to end =)

Depressing CDs, like a smooth glass of scotch or a kick in the groin, are just needed from time to time. That's my absolute favorite Counting Crows song, and a damn good BF5 one as well...

I must agree with the others, that the "depressing cd" can often be quite a beautiful thing. Just make sure you don't spin it when you're already down, it might send you over the edge.
Very elegant mix, keep it up.
