Albums I've Recently Bought And My Thoughts So Far.

Somebody's bored!
1John Frusciante
The Empyrean

This album is my first solo Frusciante album and I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised. Minus a couple of mediocre tracks, this album is awesome. The lyrics are a little ambiguous, but I guess that was to be expected. Also, the vocals are much better than I thought they would be coming from Frusciante. As concept albums go (that's what he said this is) this is a pretty good one. Worth at least a listen anyway.
Supporting Caste

Sooooooooooooooooooooo good. This album will kick your ass (if it hasn't already). The addition of the second guitarist really helps the band to explore new musical ideas. However I must say, the best part of this album is the information to be found in the booklet with the lyrics. You've gotta love the fiery determination of these guys. Highly recomended.
3The Microphones
The Glow pt.2

The first time I listened to this was in my car. Big mistake. I passed it off as boring garbage. Then, I read some reviews which advised that I use headphones in order to get the full experience. This album is much better with headphones because it's layered in a way that prevents enjoyable casual listening. I still think I need to listen to this a couple more times for the scope of it to sink in. So far, I'd say this album is good not great but I hear that I need to give this one time....we'll see.
4Regina Spektor
Soviet Kitsch

I bought this because Songs is one of my favourite albums so I figured it would be a good idea to buy another record from her. This one was a little bit of a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, it's a good album, but I was expecting something more....something....weird (like Songs). Soviet Kitsch is weird in it's own right, but it's weird in the exact same way that her other albums are. I guess I was hoping for something a little different. I've only listened to it twice so maybe I'll warm up to it eventually.
5Dinosaur Jr.
Without A Sound

I bought this album because I had played "Feel the Pain" on Rock Band 2 and thought it was a great song. Unfortunately, that's the albums' only great song. Quite frankly, the rest is shit (with one or two exceptions).
6Dinosaur Jr.

This album, on the other hand, is great. If you consider your music taste to be "indie" at all, I would recommend checking this album out. The guitar work is extraordinary on this album. Great driving music.
7Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To

Dy-no-mite. The best album on this list, that's for damn sure. Riding high from my first Godspeed experience (Slow Riot for New Zero Canada) and my second (F# A# (Infinity)), I knew that I needed more. I didn't think it was possible, but this album is better than both the others (at least that's what I think so far). The 22 minute opener Storm is everything that a 22 minute song should be. Godspeed are post-rock at it's best. If you're among the unlucky few who have yet to hear this masterpiece then tear your fat, sweaty ass away from your computer and go buy this album. Unless you're a downloader in which case, keep your fat, sweaty ass where it is and go hunt it down.
