1 Placebo 44

Received their discography during the week. Gave most of it a run-through, "Black market music" a few times.

2 Tom Waits 33

Another new artist. Downloaded "Bone Machine" after taking a read through of his thread on here and all the positives I have heard about him. Raw, diverse, BRILLIANT!
3 The Smiths 25

What can I say? I am a fan.

3 Hawkwind 25

Another new one, bought "Warrior on the edge of time" after Comus's 1001 albums thread. First introduction to this, Space music.

5 ZZ Top 19

"Tres Hombres." One of my dad's favourite bands and he never stops nagging me to check them out. A sound quite unique in my opinion, I love what Beard brings to the band.

6 El Perro del Mar 17

Received this the other day. Can't decide if I like it or if it bores me after two run-throughs. Gonna have to give it another bash soon.

7 Peter Tosh 16

Bulldog and Jackhammer's Reggae thread is the blame for this. Bought "Legalize it" on friday and took a real liking to it so I went and got the live album in Boston 1976. Let Jah Be Praised!

7 Devendra Banhart 16

Another one i had never heard of which I received during the week. Interesting stuff.

7 At the Drive-In 16

Can't keep away from "Relationship Command." This album causes me to be undecided whether I prefer ATDI or TMV.

10 The Cure 15

Another newbie. Didn't enjoy this. After about 5 songs it all just sounded the same to me.

11 Eisley 13

No verdict here. Needs another listen.

12 The All-American Rejects 12

Friend came over and wanted to listen to this. I wasn't expecting much, but it actually wasn't THAT horrific. Shall get another run-through, I like the energy to the album.

13 The Almost 11

Prefer it to Underoath. Enough said.

14 Änglagård 10

A beautiful album, "Hybris." Can't do justice to it with words, you just have to here it yourself.

14 Godspeed You! Black Emperor 10

One of my favourite bands and staples to the playlist. Gave "Lift your skinny..." 2 plays and then a couple other randoms.

I enjoyed my week of music. Quite a bit of new music, which I never complain about.

What Cure album did you get because one thing The Cure generally are not is musically boring. They are very diverse. Their first couple of albums could have that levelled at them I guess but it's more about the atmosphere with those albums. Try Disintegration or even their remix album Mixed Up which will give you a better inclination of their sound.

I didn't have too many listens this week so I'm just going to review the ones that got 10 or more plays:

Gorillaz - 15
Picked up 'Demon Days' after Sweet's post in the Sweet Wolf thread. Obviously I'd heard of them before but had never had any real desire to check them out. And the vids that he and Jackhammer posted made it even more necessary to give a listen too. It was pretty good...I wasn't blown away or anything, but I would definitely give this some more listens.

Jill Scott - 15
I've always loved her first album "Who Is Jill Scott?". I was listening to my songs on random one night and heard one from this album and thought I needed to give it another listen for old times sake.

Freestylers - 13
Found out about this group from Jackhammer's "7 songs to have a night of sweaty passion" compilation. (It's a shame the "7 songs" thread died ). And now that he's be gracious enough to send me a few other albums from these guys, expect more listens!

Asa - 10
A beautiful woman, a beautiful voice, and beautiful lyrics to go with them.

Trinity Roots - 10
If you like Fat Freddy's Drop or maybe you're just looking for something new with a reggae flavor, you will want to check 'em out.

Snot - 10
The drummer in my husband's band suggested I check them out. It wasn't half bad...wasn't half good either. I might listen to them some more if the mood strikes me.

I was wondering the same thing. I think the comp Staring at the Sea is a good place to start...or go next if someone thought an album was boring.

1. The Kinks (36)
Played Preservation Act 1 for the second time, and Preservation Act 2 for the first time. The first is pretty good with a couple of great tracks, but pales in comparison to their earlier stuff. The second I found absolutely terrible.

2. The Mars Volta (34)
Revisiting their catalog in preparation for the new album. Didn't fit Bedlam in, will likely play it Monday at the office.

3. Mr. Bungle (33)
Revisited their three studio albums.

4. Swingin' Utters (32)
Great punk rock band with a heavy Americana influence. Kind of cow punk I guess. I first picked up their 2000 self-titled album in the decade, based on a song they had on a Fat Wreck Chords compilation (I love most of those comps). Though I wasn't feeling it too much for many years. Finally last year I pulled it back off the shelf for another listen and I really took to it. So I picked up a few of their other albums and have been digging them since. These plays are from the self-titled and their last studio album, Dead Flowers, Bottles, Bluegrass, and Bones from 2003.

5. Clark (24)
Continuing the Clark-fest from last week. Great stuff, can't wait for the new album in July.

6. Fugazi (16)
I played 13 Songs and the Furniture EP.

6. Meat Puppets (16)
I played Meat Puppets II, first time listening to any of their albums. I enjoyed it quite a bit, probably a second listen next week. I was familiar with the songs performed by Nirvana on their Unplugged in NY album, excellent covers and excellent originals.

6. Leatherface (16)
Played Mush again. Yeah it's good but I think it's a bit overrated. I realize they probably were a big influence on many 90s punk rock bands but it doesn't stand out as different enough to really impress me.

9. Yardbirds (14)
Played Roger the Engineer, first time checking out one of their albums. I had it on low volume on the desktop speakers while sitting at home, so I wasn't really able to form an opinion.

9. Propagandhi (14)
Potemkin City Limits. Third listen I think, sounding more hardcore now than on the first listen, closer to the albums before and after. So that's good.

11. Built to Spill (13)
Did some driving with my girlfriend's tape deck-equipped car last weekend so I pulled out this dubbed tape, There's Nothing Wrong with Love. Then I scrobbled it digitally in the evening. Probably still my favorite BtS album.

11. Jawbreaker (13)
Dear You, the flip-side to the dubbed tape mentioned above that I played while driving around.

13. Grizzly Bear (12)
Played the new album once. Not very impressed so far, pretty subtle stuff. Really makes me wonder why people dig this type of stuff so much. I do really like the track "Two Weeks" though, I'd hear that a few times on the local indie station before playing this.
