okay, so heres the deal. my credit card has this rewards program thingy, which i stumbled upon whilst checking my balance. apparently, i have enough "points" to get one new album for free. its basically through amazon, so i can get anything.

 

ive been having a really hard time deciding on what to get. i want something new, but im not sure what. i was thinking about getting a copy of strangers almanac, but ive heard that so many times.

 

someone please help me.

A few albums that I've been into a lot lately:

 

Seven Swans- Sufjan Stevens (Beautiful stripped down sufjan at his best. One of the most intimate albums I've ever heard)

Octahedron- The Mars Volta (The best album they've put out since Frances. Cedric is perfection on this album)

Gold- Ryan Adams (All of his other albums pale in comparison to this masterpiece.)

The new Dinosaur Jr. album is really good although I don't think it is out for a few more weeks officially.

My next purchase is probably "Planets are blasted" by Boston Spaceships

The new Sonic Youth is also on the list.

Phoenix

I am liking the new Eels so far although only a little ways through it.

You have to be kidding right? It's a good record but Heartbreaker is his masterpiece by a long chalk, to say it pales in comparison is frankly madness on your part my dear friend, I'm sure most others would concur too...

 

Keep on rocking in the free world.

This year has been hard, a lot of records, but a lot of mediocrity.

 

Here are some suggestions from the past few years.

 

Josh Ritter "The Animal Years" or "The Historical Conquests Of Josh Ritter"

 

Dolorean "You Can't Win" or "Violence In The Snowy Fields"

 

Iron & Wine "Around The Well" 2cd b sides/unreleased (freaking awesome)

 

Matthew Ryan "Matthew Ryan vs. The Silver State"

I don't know. I feel like Heartbreaker falls off towards the end of the album. I guess 'pales in comparison' was a bit strong, but I like Gold far better and I would say that Easy Tiger is the second best. Having said that, some of my favorite Ryan Adams songs come off Heartbreaker, but it doesn't work for me as well on the whole.
