|Tonight, On Hardcopy!|
In the past month I've had a little more money than usual. So Amazon, and Best Buy, have been kind enough to help me replaced my "previewed" copies for the real thing.
The Sham Mirrors
Amazon - I love this CD. Mine was used, but still in great shape.
Amazon - This is probably my favorite Ulver album. It's just so odd and beautiful. Thankfully, I got the red-covered one.
Shadows of the Sun
Amazon - I commit suicide to this album every night. This one hasn't actually come yet. Should be soon though.
Amazon - This one I also got used, but is also in good shape. This is one of the most beautiful scores I've ever heard. It never gets boring.
My Guardian Anger
Amazon - A friend introduced me to this band earlier last year, and I've been wanting to get my hands on the real thing ever since. I love this CD. Also, it's my first, and only so far, reviewed album on Sputnik.
The Mother and the Enemy
Amazon - Had to get this one as well. Blackmetal meets trip-hop. I'm planning on reviewing this next.
Winds of Creation
Amazon - The same friend who turned me to Lux, turned me on to Decapitated. What a good guy! This album is sooo bitchin'. And to my delight, it came with a bonus DVD of a live show in the U.K. from 2004. It was sad to watch.
Amazon - WoC, now with added technicality!

Leaving Your Body Map
Amazon - I couldn't believe I got this for $15 after s/h. It's even the reissue with 2 bonus tracks added. This album amazes me.
|10||maudlin of the Well|
Amazon - Another incredible album that I got for under $20, and this is also the re-issued version with 3 bonus tracks. Both came from the same guy.
Cloak of Love
Amazon - This also hasn't come yet. I've actually already bought this on i tunes, but I want to hold it. Such a great EP.
The End Is Begun
Best Buy - This is a criminally overlooked album from last year. Check it out. Seriously.
Best Buy - Been meaning to get this for a while now. Going to see them with Nile in April or something like that. Should be stellar.
|14||Born of Osiris|
The New Reign
Best Buy - I expect good things from this band in the future. The New Reign is awesome for a debut. Also, a very good live band.
|15||The Mars Volta|
The Bedlam in Goliath
Circuit City - This was a pleasant surprise.
|16||Circle Takes the Square|
As the Roots Undo
Best Buy - A pretty sweet album with a really sweet package design.
New Sacred Cow
Used records store - $3.99 yea! I was addicted to, like, seven tracks on here earlier last year. Such a catchy and varied album. Much better than the new release.
|18||Minus the Bear|
Planet of Ice
Best Buy - From start to finish, a wonderful album.
|19||Rodrigo Y Gabriela|
Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Best Buy - I mainly got this for the DVD. Their a fun group to watch. Want to see them live very badly.
|20||The Pax Cecilia|
Blessed are the Bonds
The Pax Cecilia - Haven't gotten this yet. I ordered the free CD from the band in the middle of January, but alas. If I don't see it in a couple of weeks, I'll order again.
