Hello,

Although I'm addicted to buying CD's, I only bought 3 records this year that were also first released this year (excluding any Best Of's). So I have a short list:

1. Solomon Burke - Don't Give Up On Me
The King Of Rock'n'Soul returns! After years of living in oblivion one of soul's greatest voices returned with a stellar album. Great songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Elvis Costello wrote songs especially for him and the album was recorded in a few days, almost live. Just like the great soul albums of the past and that's exactly how it sounds like, a great, classic, soul album.

2. Bruce Springsteen - The Rising
Much has already been said about this album, so I can't add very much without using clichés. It's just a really good rock album by Bruce Springsteen, who can communicate a message without it being too obvious. World's Apart is a highlight, but I have to agree with some others that Paradise falls a bit short. Nevertheless, this album deserves all the praise it gets (even though I'd like to see the Grammy of Record Of The Year going to Solomon Burke).

3. Tröckener Kecks - Meer Niet!
My only other non-compilation purchase of 2002. A double live album of the farewell tour of a great Dutch rock band. I didn't see them live before this farewell tour and this is a great souvenir (snif).

There are also some albums released this year I definately want to check out because I think/have heard they are very good:
Coldplay - A Rush Of Blood To The Head
Red Hot Chilli Peppers - By The Way
Pearl Jam - Riot Act

Finally, I bought 2 compilations from 2002 this year
U2 - The Best Of 1990-2000 & B-Sides
There's been a lot of talk about this album. Maybe, maybe too much talk. This album is not a stinker, this album is a very good compilation.

Rolling Stones - Forty Licks
If someone asks why he should buy this Rolling Stones compilation instead of another one I can explain it in 3 words: Losing My Touch. This song has very much against it; it's a new song, it's a ballad, it's the last track on the second CD and it's sung by Keith Richards. But it sounds excellent. He certainly hasn't lost it. For the rest? Street Fighting Man, Gimme Shelter, Satisfaction, Sympathy For The Devil, Start Me Up, Love Is Strong, Miss You and this isn't even 1/5th of the record...

C ya!

Marty

1. Scarlet's Walk - Tori Amos
2. By the Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers
3. Sea Change - Beck
4. The Rising - Springsteen

That's all I can think of at the moment. That's pretty much all I listened to this year so I guess that's it. Nothing else I bought has been enduring.

Great thread, by the way
Ok...I'm not understanding this about Eddie Vedder as tired or old.
Dammit...I just got back from seeing PJ in Seattle to see back to back shows on Dec 8th and 9th...and well...Eddie sure ain't old OR tired. And what an ARSE that man has!LOL! He's only 37...and looks about 27 if you ask me and alot of people!!
I mean..cmon!

Eddie as Bono...LOL

That album needs a few more listens for everyone if you ask me.
I really do think Riot Act is their best yet....and the live presentation of their new songs just blow the studio versions out of the water.
With that said...here's my list...in no particular order...
1. Pearl Jam Riot Act...wow!
2. U2's Best of 1990-2000
3. Tori Amos...Scarlet's Walk
4. Beck....Sea Change....depressing but freakin beautiful
5. Red Hot Chili Peppers....By the way....great fookin album...prolly their best yet.
6. Bruuuuuuuuuce...The Rising.
7. Silverchair....Diorama....I've never liked their stuff until now....this album is nothing like their other stuff. Brilliant...

I have the Coldplay album. And all of their other albums. I'm just not seeing what is so great. No offense to Coldplay fans here. I do recognize that they are talented...very very talented. I do think that Parachutes was a better album, though. I have given Rush of Blood to the Head MANY listens....just the other day...3 listens in a row. And it doesn't grab me. I find it kinda bland. I also don't find them heavily original. Call me crazy...but I find Coldplay borrows(and indeed is indebted to) alot from U2 and Radiohead IMO. Not that there's anything wrong with that....everyone has idols, heros and influences. I just find that their stuff is good, not great or original by any stretch of the imagination. With that said, I still would jump up and down if someone handed me tickets to a Coldplay show. I've heard wonders about their live show, and if live is where they live, then I'm sure I'll appreciate this band a little more. Any one have any spare Coldplay tickets? LOL!
oxoxo

I think it will. I still feel kinda bad that he didn't quite crack my top 7. But I felt even worse after I took a hard listen to "Be Mine" and "Easy Way to Cry" from [i]A New Day...[i]. They are beautiful, wonderful, moving songs.
