    Default Ultimate Runner's Music

    Post music that galvanizes your best jogs; I'm a distance runner and I need more music to pace to/harmonize with. These are my three album suggestions:

    1. Crystal Castles, Crystal Castles II (2010)

    Amazing on runs. Makes me want to spontaneously combust in a runner's high glory.

    Listen to Track 4, Baptism, here.

    2. The xx, xx (2009).

    Not as favored as Crystal Castles, but a viable alternative.


    3. Neutral Milk Hotel, In An Aeroplane Over the Sea (1998).

    jogging ? :eek:

    soft rock music :eek:²

    You guys are far too much adapted to the system. What you need is a decent speedcore track, some amphetamines and a 72 hours techno festival...

    Thank you for your, erm, innovative suggestions entropie. Alas, I have only a human heart (and cardiovascular system).
