Project 005 Mixtapes: The Elements

Holy crap! Heidi Smith from TODO went above and beyond the call of duty, creating a four-CD set inspired by the elements: air, water, fire and earth.

Most of the track titles incorporate the elements, but she nails the moods of the elements too. The air CD is light and atmospheric. Tracks on the water CD have actual water sounds (or watery-sounding sounds). The earth CD is rougher and gritty. The fire CD is spirited. Awesome.On top of that, there are clever little details like "Life's A Gas" on the air CD and "Love Reign O'er Me" on the water CD.And now we have a copy of Toto's "Africa."A big gold star.
