Below you will find a track-by-track guide to a typical (err... slightly cliched) holiday reunion: what to play while you travel to your friends/families house, what to play before you walk through the door, what to play after the inevitable fight and the inevitable make up, what to play at the end of the night, and what to play on your drive back.

Track List:

1. "Year Off" -- High Places, Original Colors
2. "Rock of Calvary" -- Cataldo, Prison Boxing
3. "Autumn Song" -- Sea Pink, Dead Seas
