Just the strange assortment of things I've been listening to... I'm bored.
Song Yet To Be Sung
I used to hate Jane's Addiction, but listening to Perry's solo work has gotten me over my disdain for his voice. This is an awesome album... makes me want to go have sex in the desert. Maybe the video for the title track has something to do with that though.
Relaxing album with exceptional lyrics. I haven't listened to all of Elverum's stuff, but this is probably my personal favorite thus far.
My fiancee got me into Deb Talan's solo work, and I quite like her voice. I found out about her proper band The Weepies afterwards. Good stuff.

Leaving Your Body Map
I've been listening to all of this band's albums quite a bit lately. I think this one is my favorite, though Part The Second is pretty amazing also. Still need to check out Kayo Dot.
...and the rest of their albums.
The Malediction Fields
Still don't really know what to think about this album, it drags at times, but on a handful of tracks it is glorious.
Actually I haven't been listening to this lately, but I'm adding it here because I should be listening to it more. I'm not really into this genre but I'm psychically sensing that it's amazing good for the genre...
In my top 10 for 2009, as if I had one.
Across The Dark
I have been listening to it a lot lately, but not necessarily because I like it... in fact, I think it's probably Insomnium's weakest album yet. There are some great moments, but for the most part it just doesn't do it for me. ATWW is still the best.

No One's First And You're Next
I was skeptical of this until I learned it was B-sides and rarities from their last two albums. Knowing that makes this a lot more enjoyable somehow. I really like about half of this album, and feel pretty meh about the other half, which is how I felt about pretty much all of their last album so I guess it's an improvement.
|2,6,8, and moderately 9 are cool. 5 as well.|
|I was actually trying to keep metal out of this list since that's pretty much all I ever include... but I gave up near the end. I will have to see how Insomnium's new album grows on me. Tracks 1 & 2 are superb, 3 is just bad for Insomnium (musically and vocally), 4 has clean vocals that actually work, 5 and 6 are good but nothing spectacular, 7 starts off with a riff modern-day IF would dream up but improves... and the closer is possibly the weakest closer they've come up with. The finale to ATWW, in contrast, was orgasm-worthy. Not bad though I guess.|
|dude, dont judge ATD yet....the quality of the leak is horrid, wait till the official release dude|
|Yeah Jizz it is a shoddy leak but I don't think any amount of mastering could save the third track. I'll pull my rating for now though.|
