    I got "Live" by Lacrimosa

    (I´ve heard bad comments about Anne Nurmi´s voice but the album is good nonetheless)

    Mine was Bleach by Nirvana. I've had it on tape for years, so I finally got round to buying it on CD.

    Good News For People Who Love Bad News by Modest Mouse ... although, admittedly, it was a birthday present, but i had strongly encouraged its being given to me...

    i have Love by The Cult on order, does that count? (i'm trying to recreate my 80's collection)

    "Beautiful Letdown" by Switchfoot. If you're ever in a really deep bad mood, listen to that CD. It has the uncanny ability to lift your spirits.

    "Contraband" by Velvet Revolver, it is an awesome album. VR may in fact be better than GNR.

    Ohio - Over the Rhine

    I generally don't listen to spiritual, Christ-haunted albums (unless they are compilations of Freedom Songs). Granted, Over the Rhine are my favourite band and, that said, this double album is textured and gorgeous. The spirituality Linford and Karin have flirted with previously is more blatant in a number of tracks, but tasteful and honest; in other words, the message is not cloying in the least.

    The album is a tipsy, giddy, lost, genuine heartache.

    Extracted from Linford's liner notes:
    The songs on OHIO connect us to the piece of earth we call home. We grew up in small coal mining towns in the Ohio Valley, listening to music that could have only been unearthed in America: Southern Gospel, Country Western and Rock 'n' Roll. This music fertilized the soil of our early lives. We sit down at the upright piano these days with dirt under our fingernails...

    We grew up with the musical mingling common to many of us who were raised in "the church." There were the old hymns that seeped into our souls via our mothers' milk, and then there was the allure of the music we were finding on our radio dials and on our friends' records. In small town America, many of us do grow up in a surreal musical world where Elvis is King, Jesus is Lord.

    The records we ended up making document in part our attempts to unravel the tangle of religion we inherited. It's unsettling when someone named Jesus keeps turning up in unexpected places on a double album, but we're by no means the first songwriters to be Christ-haunted.
    Lyric excerpts:

    The last time I saw Jesus
    I was drinking bloody mary's in the South
    In a barroom in New Orleans
    Rinsin' out the bad taste in my mouth


    Broken down
    We're all so broken down
    Bandages on our wings
    I know I don't have to tell you
    Only broken hearts can sing
    I'm hoping for a sign
    Pray that I'm anything but fine


    The moon blind-sided the sky again
    As we grabbed loose ends of the tide and then
    The slippery slide
    You know I can't say when
    I ever took a ride that could slap me this silly
    With roiling joy
    Lazy as sin
    Lyin' up in heaven with my special friend
    And the space he's in
    It can make a girl grin
    In the beginning of a lifelong fling


    Arms spread across the dark river
    The night air causing him to shiver
    Like the fluorescent lights in the Seven Eleven
    Meet me in the backstreets of heaven


    Can't bear the news in the evening
    We're going to bed and we're going to war
    All of this for
    Anyone's guess
    If we forget anything
    Heaven forbid someone would remind us

    Sinners and saints, priests and kings
    Are we just using God for our own gain
    What's in a name
    Open your eyes
    If we forget everything
    There will be no one left to remind us


    Don't be bothered by the fears
    I'll try to bottle them
    Like my mother's perfume
    She wore it only on Sunday
    Kept it safe in her room
    In a chest with a key
    We found it anyway

    ...Your fire burns me like a favorite song
    A song I should have know all along
    I feel you move like smoke in my eyes
    And that is why


    Changes [Jesus] come
    Turn the world around
    Lay my burden down
    Turn this world around
    Bring the whole thing down
    Bring it down

    And the music, oh!, the music. :)

    Um, highly recommended?

    A couple days ago I picked up Good News For People Who Love Bad News, by Modest Mouse. Definitely a higher quality album than I expected.

    Nonpoint - "Recoil"
    Eighteen Visions - "Vanity"

    Both albums kick serious ass.
