omigor, i don't even think i've bought FIVE cd's this year!

actually, i have, but i've bought a lot of old stuff. the only new cds i've bought were (sorry if any of these are 2001) uhhh...sheryl crow and goo goo dolls. shit. that's it. it's not that i don't like new music, well actually for the most part i don't, but oh well.

i bought a lot of sting stuff. in january, i ordered like four of his cds i didn't have and got them overnight shipped cuz no one else had them. (it was rarer stuff like nada como el sol)

blah blah...

I've got 3 of the above (Bruce, Weezer, and Doves). I really want to get the Oasis, Elvis, and Coldplay albums but will have to wait some.

I can't even think of 10 albums I've bought this year that were released this year! I've bought maybe 6 new-new albums, lol, the rest were "oldies".

Anyone who has not heard Diorama by silverchair must give it a listen. Please. Hell, even Bono endorsed it, the sticker on the front of the album's got a quote to the effect of "swim to australia to hear them if you have to". It's truly a great great album.

In fact, I'm going to make my own best of 2002 thusfar mix CD in a bit. So far, tracks are going to include-

"Love Explosion"- Weezer
"Electrical Storm" (if a good version turns up soon)- U2
"Dosed"- Red Hot Chili Peppers
"Alibi"- Elvis Costello
"Further On (Up the Road)"- Bruce Springsteen
"Richard Manuel is Dead"- Counting Crows
"Across the Night"- silverchair
"Heavy Metal Drummer"- Wilco
"The Scientist"- Coldplay
"Big-Eyed Fish"- Dave Matthews Band
"Words"- Doves
"Expecting"- The White Stripes

I also like the new Korn, Eminem and Reel Big Fish albums... but I don't think they'd be in place with the rest of the album, and the new Nine Inch Nails album was live and I don't want to stick an old track on there. I need to hear the new Bowie, too.

Normal

i don't have 3 or 7. i'm sure i'll get weezer. i agree that all of those are EXCELLENT albums. i will have to think of a few more that i think belong on that list. it's been a good year for music.

did elbow come out this year or last? and i love the hives album. and the white stripes. and strokes. i have no idea if those actually came out this year.

Damn you for mentioning Elbow and Hives before I had a chance to! I do believe both of those albums came out this year, but I'm pretty sure the Strokes album came out last year. And I also have no idea on the white stripes album. In any case, Elbow and Hives definitely belong on that list. Quality music, people. Sheer quality.

1. Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (THIS ALBUM IS SO GOOD)
2. Doves - The Last Broadcast
3. RHCP - By The Way
4. Nina Nastasia - The Blackened Air (real good female folk singer, not like jewel, she is good!)
5. Arab Strap - The Red Thread(might have come out mid last year though, but I didn't get it until recently!)
6. Radar Brothers - And The Surrounding Mountains

That is all I can think of.

Yep, about the same except I would take out the Hives and put in RHCP...which is awesome.
