Stuff I've been into recently.
Really been digging this and his self-titled album and will definitely be venturing
further into his catalog.
Could not WAIT for this to come out (Darkness Box Set) and when it finally
came, it delivered. This is a fucking fantastic set of unreleased Boss songs - I
believe Pitchfork had a quote along the lines of "he is his own best critic", and
while true - both of these discs are well worth the release. Fantastic stuff.
No Better Than This
Throw out everything you know about Mellencamp (good or bad) and PLEASE
give this album a listen. Truly a great piece of work - I know people who love
his old stuff as well as this and HATE his old stuff and still appreciate this. Just a
great piece of work from Mellencamp.

Wow. Sorely overlooked album/artist just about everywhere including Sputnik.
Love And Theft
Got to see Dylan for the second time last week and it was exponentially better
than the first. I almost have every Dylan release (missing about 1 or 2) and he
is getting to a point beyond words for me. A music legend. Of his four newest
this would probably rank as my favorite, but it's real close with Time Out Of
Mind. This album has a little of all the tricks that Dylan has collected up his
sleeve and seriously should be considered as some of his finest work.
