Recently got the following:

Foo Fighters - Sonic Highways - Loving it more with every listen.
AC\DC - Rock or Bust - Not their best effort by a long shot. But still some nice old school r&r to play while having the mates over for a bbq.
Pink Floyd - Endless River - Very disappointed in this. At first I though its a David Gilmore + co side project. But even the Gilmore solo's was so boring. Don't think I'll even bother putting this on again.
Jake White - Lazaretto - Haven't really gotten into it. But got that weird sound that you expect from White.
Slash - World on Fire - Some solid songs on it. Also still need to give it a good listen. But so far I really like it. And it got 17 songs on it! So a lot to go through :)

That's how I feel about Sonic Highways, the more I listen to it I like it more and more. Lazaretto is definitely a Jack White album where you'll like it or not.

Santa brought me

Mark Lanegan's Phantom Radio (Deluxe that has No Bells On Sunday with it)
Joy Divisions Closer
Nirvana's In Utero (I got the earlier used, so it didn't have the lyrics sheet in it)
Sonic Youth's Goo
Distiller's Coral Fang

What a great Santa! <3

Also, I'm not sure I told back then, but from Helsinki I got Lanegan's Blues Funeral and Has God Seen My Shadow, and Mother Love Bone double cd.

Well I finally got stuck on Slash's World on Fire. And I'm really enjoying it more and more.

Just Miles Kenendy's voice gets in the way a bit. But who ever listen to a Slash song for the vocals?

My old laptop is apparently working. :D Grungeforum.com was among the last websites I've visited, with saved passwords and everything. I'll post something while I'm here.

FNM: sol invictus. I was supposed to see them live last month but that did not work out. Sadly.

I decided it was time for me to catch up with some hip hop classics, among other stuff. So I bought:

Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet
Nas - Illmatic
Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang

I also got the new albums by Kadavar ("Berlin", once more a great take on neo-proto-metal) and La Luz ("Weirdo Shrine", I guess I gushed about this band and album sufficiently last week and I really hope I can make it to their show they're gonna play next month in my town! :D )


Oh, also this:

Hey, it only took seventeen years between the first Trees album I bought and the next one :) (<- meant as the original "fake smile"!). Plus it was only 4 bucks at the local flea market.


So far I got to listen to the two Public Enemy albums (Nation of Millions is really really great, Black Planet not as quite but maybe on second or third listen it will grow), Kadavar (also quite the grower with a lot of potential), Nas (didn't quite live up to the hype this album keeps getting) and La Luz (well...). Halfway through Sweet Oblivion (well it's great, what can I say?) and couldn't listen to the Clan as of now. Good investments were made anyway 8-)

Did some browsing around at local pawn stores and in a day found:

Rollins Band - Weight
Sonic Youth - Goo
The Beavis & Butthead Experience
Joy Division - Closer
Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero
Fugazi - Repeater + 3 Songs
and
Singles: Official Soundtrack (AIC, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, etc)

:P

I also ordered a Discharge CD on Ebay for like $5. It was supposed to arrive over a month ago (I placed the order on July 8th), so I talked to the seller, confirmed the shipping address and they said the CD should've shipped and been here by now, so I'm assuming it's forever lost. I can't get a refund because it was bought on one f those gift cards. Not too upset, it was only $5 and I'll probably stumble across it someday.

Speaking of which, still no luck finding AIC's 'Tripod' on CD. For respect to Layne Staley and everything that is grunge, I still have not listened to that album, and refuse to until I have the actual CD in my hands, it's the only release in their discography that I don't own or even know, with the exception from the few songs on the MTV Unplugged.

Also, I walked into my local store the same day I went to a local show, found a surprise waiting on the wall, the 'Scratch Acid' EP. Only it's $50 that I don't have, and my record player is broken at the current moment, twas definitely heartbreaking. I definitely hope it's still there come the holidays. I've seen Black Flag's 'Slip It In' sitting on the shelf untouched for months. I guess it goes to show, the local scene these days are only into bands lke Counterparts, Defeater, Title Fight and La Dispute. Yuck.
