-I don't get paid for a bit, but when i do i'm going to snag the new Coral album for sure. I have 4 of the tracks off of it and they get played every time i open my winamp
-Oasis' lead single "Lyla" has everything a song could ask for, except for a chorus. There's no payoff to the song.
-I don't think much of the first Coldplay single (speed of sound). It's not bad, but it ain't amazing. I'm pretty sure i'll get their new album, but i wasn't the biggest fan of a rush of blood to the head. Their first album, Parachutes, is a fantastic album and remains their best work.
-The White Stripes lead single has a definite Death From Above 1979 sound to it. Very heavy on the low end, messy distortion. It's not really growing on me though...but of course i'll buy the album.
-Mando Diao and the Soundrack of our Lives have been battling it out for the most plays this week. Sort of a battle of the swedes i suppose. That has me wondering- along with the Hives and the Hellacopters, what's going on in Sweden to create such sweet rock n roll? Likewise with Denmark and the Blue van and Ravonettes.
-I was saddened but not surprised to see Bo Bice lose American idol. He has a pretty wicked voice, but he's no bubblegum singer. Even though people have been saying, "Just cause he lost doesn't mean he won't have a career.." etc., i doubt we'll hear from him for much longer.
-Eminem's latest song is a fucking joke. Absolute dog shit.
Finally, would some band come along and just grab the continent by the throat and throttle it with a big guitar riff? It's been awhile, but we had a few contenders with Jet's "Are you gonna be my girl" and the Stripes "7 nation army" . Now what do we have? "Jerk it out" by Caesars? fuck me... I'd love for some kick ass rock group to just kick the fuck out of every bloody lameass Ludacris and 50 cent video. Not to mention the fucking lame-ass BEP, who even on their last album, were pretty cool. "....it's the motown blood in my veins!" - Mando Diao, "Motown Blood"
