The best thing about the Little Darla compilations is the way the
tracks on the disc are laid out. Each successive track is completely
different than the one before or after it, but not so much so that the
listener is jarred out of whatever mood the previous track put him or
The songs are meant to be listened to in the order they appear on the
disc; listening to the tracks in random order doesn't work nearly as
well as just playing the disc through. That said, the theme of this
sampler is mellow and moody, with wonderful contributions from Color
Filter, Push Kings, and Heartworms, to name a few.
A good many of the tracks here are worth buying the entire CD
for-Poundsign's "Isolation" is definitely one of them, while Piano
Magic's "Amongst the Books an Angel" is another.
