$25 to burn, so many cds

Ok, me pappa gave me a $25 gift certificate to Media Play that he got for Christmas and never used. I now have to try to decide what to buy with it. Things I was contemplating:

Dropkick Murphey's - live album(cant remember the name)
The Clash - live album(From Here to Eternity)
Longwave - what ever their album is called
The Libertines - what ever their album is called
Burning Brides - what ever their album is called
Cat Power - You are Free
Liam Lynch - Fake Songs
Burning Brides - Burn Piano Island, Burn
Possible electronic type music cd's for a change
Various other cd's

also contemplated:

The Clash - DVD, what ever it's called
Other possible music-related DVD's - Meeting People is Easy, etc

What do you all think? I have no clue. I cant decide.

Anyone like The Libertines? I havent even heard their stuff, but they've gotten great reviews all over the place.

Which would you choose? If you know my tastes well, I'll let you recommend me things that arent on my list. If you dont know me well and recommend crap, I will despise your recommendations and spew them out like so much spoiled milk.

ps - I apologize for the severe lack of info on album title names, it's 3:30 AM while I type this, I'm far too tired/lazy to look them all up

From Here To Eternity is excellent.
The Libs are pretty cool, I've got like 5 mp3s and I love all of them. If you like the Clash/the Jam, you should like the Libertines.

what a waster
what a fuckin' waster

Seriously I do recommend downloading their stuff first. I've seen quite a few posts on other message boards on how they suck and all but I think they're excellent.

Songs to try:

What A Waster
Time For Heroes
I Get Along
Up The Bracket

Crikey, that's all I have!

I opened this thread and just remembered Pete Yorn's new one is out today.


I'd go with the Libertines. I have some of their mp3's, too.

Already got it. Good recommendation though.


It looks like The Libertines are pretty good then. I'm listening to one of their songs right now, it's pretty good.

Ok, I listened to a few Libertines songs, I didnt like them much at all.

Sounded like a British version of mall punk for the masses.

The Libertines. What a sorry ass band. The "hype" machine rolls on I guess.

If you want some good music, go buy the debut (and only) album by The La's.

Huh????

I haven't heard of any of these.

or maybe I'm living under a rock!
