I'm starting to think that buying CDs is the only thing I am really good at. I have consistently managed to get that particular task done over the course of the last ten+ years.

Anyway, I got new stuff and I going to talk about it here.

I love this. I am so glad that it was finally released and I am more than a little sad that I missed the Scissor Sisters show in the area. I could have danced like a lunatic and felt happy. Another plus is that the residents at my work hate it! Double score!

To the Confusion of Our Enemies
Considering the kinds of bands I had heard of The Riverboat Gamblers opening for and how much hype I heard about this band, I was expecting a lot more. The CD is not bad. It is pretty solid, but it is not really what I was expecting. It will probably really grow on me someday.

Alert Today Alive Tomorrow
I know, I know. Shut up. This stuff makes me happy, and I am never going to get over it. So if you thought I was, you should probably get over that.

Inflammable Material
You CANNOT go wrong with this band. I am really happy to finally own a physical copy of this CD.

I bought this because it was pretty cheap and I like the song Do It Clean, probably because I always really liked Hole's cover version. I am new to Echo And The Bunnymen, but I'm really digging this CD and I'm looking for suggestions as to what to look for next.

I Love Rock 'n' Roll
This is to make up for the fact that my vinyle version of this album will not play in my car. The album still rules and all that. I could not find this particular album on CD, so I was super excited when I finally found it.

Get Up
I bought this because it was cheap, I love Sleater-Kinney, and I really like the song "By the Time You're Twenty-five." It worked out well.

Gorilla Angreb - Discography
This was a really exciting find, as I had no clue it even existed. It was even more exciting because I only had one mp3 on my harddrive, but the entire discography is fantastic. Extreme noise compared it to X or said they were influenced by X or something like that...and I think you can definitely hear it. This is not to say that Gorilla Angreb is taking X's place in my mind or heart--but it is to say that they are a damn good band.

Veruca Salt - IV
I like Veruca Salt a lot more than "the next person," but I am not quite sure how I feel about this album. I like it a lot more after listening to it several times at work yesterday...but I think I need to listen to it more. Louise Post sounds really different on this album and I am not sure that I like it.

    Damn. I've really gotta get those Joan Jett and Sleater-Kinney albums.

    Get Up is actually a Sleater-Kinney single. But it rules and everybody should own it. Joan Jett is certainly a must though. I hope you can find it more easily than I did.

    You're right, that Stiff Little Fingers album is great. Crocodiles is a good Echo and the Bunnymen album to start with. It was their first, and is definitely one of their best. If you're looking for other Bunnymen suggestions, I would go with Ocean Rain next, and Heaven Up Here and Porcupine are also equally as great.

    I am going to check out the Echo and the Bunnymen albums for sure. I really like the one that I bought. I did not think I would like it this much. And bodesta, I am totally jealous. I hope you guys have a blast.
