Why I've Been Broke Lately

Everytime I step into a CD store, it seems like I'm picking up a new album. I need to stop/get a job. Or else somebody gonna get hurt, real bad.
1Anberlin
Cities


I bought it so I could give it to my lil bro, but I wound up keeping it. it's was an alright cd, but not exactly my favorite.
2Bloc Party
A Weekend in the City


Another alright album. I just couldn't get into it, and didn't have a desire to listen to it multiple times. I think I hyped it up too much. I was looking for fun, fast songs, pretty much an improved Silent Alarms, but Weekend in the City wasnt it.
3 ISIS
In the Abscence of Truth


A friend wouldn't shut up about ISIS, and I'm glad he didn't stop whoring them. Awesome album, awesome band. Now I don't stop bugging my other friends about ISIS
4Modest Mouse
We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank


My first real taste of Modest Mouse, and I really liked this album. 1st half was pretty damn catchy, and I was pretty hooked to Modest Mouse's latest release. Good stuff, I'm thinking about getting some more of their stuff...once I have money that is. It's a vicious cycle, man
5The John Butler Trio
Grand National


The JBT are pretty awesome, and I think they improved a lot on this released, when compared to their previous effort, Sunrise Over Sea. If you guys haven't heard any JBT, this album would be a pretty good place to start, as they stepped it up on their 07 release.
6Nine Inch Nails
Year Zero


This album was pretty freakin awesome! I was so addicted to Year Zero, and songs like The Good Soldier, My Violent Heat and The Great Destroyer that I pretty much listened to this exclusively for 2 weeks. Now I'm kicking myself for not buying tickets to see NIN when they come to Sydney in May. Not like I could afford it after all these CD's
7 Rastawookie
Perfectly Ordinary


I wouldn't be surprised if nobody's heard of these guys. A reggae band based in Sydney, they put a bit of their South American flavor into some chilled out reggae tracks. But I really bought this cuz my girlfriend wanted it (whipped!). I haven't really given it a chance, to be honest.
8Porcupine Tree
Fear of a Blank Planet


From the start, Steven Wilson had me hooked. My fav track off here might have to be Anesthesize. Good, good stuff
9 Dream Theater
Metropolis Pt 2: Scenes From a Memory


This is actually the first DT album I've bought with my own money (lies, I picked up Live at Budokan. yea I'm too lazy to go back and delete what i just typed). I got ToT off my drummer, and liked it a lot, and when i first spun this record I was a little underwhelmed at first. I was expecting some dark, atmospheric music and crushing riffs a la ToT, but as the album progressed I got more and more into it. I'll definitely be spending more time with this beast.
10Coheed and Cambria
In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3


Man, I love Coheed! I picked up this and #9 for ten bucks a pop, so I was like," you can't go wrong for 10 bucks" and then subsequently went to spend more money I don't have. I'm actually listening to this right now (the Velorium Camper I: Faint of Hearts, and it's pretty bad ass), and I'm loving it. Easily one of my favorite bands, I can't wait for their next release this fall.
