Recent CD Purchases

Bored of my music, I made a set of purchaces over the two weeks or so:

  1. Chemical Brothers – Push the Button
    Solid set of the typical Chemical Brothers work. First track with Q-Tip works well.
  2. U2 – How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
    Outside the incredibly bizzare intro to the CD in Spanish, it’s enjoyable. Nothing really shocking or winning here.
  3. Green Day – American Idiot
    Great album, probably their best since Dookie. Great lyrics and guitar work. I’m still listening to this one to get through all the content.
  4. Linkin Park/Jay Z – Collision Course
    This was a total cop out to radio music driven by Numb/Encore. It fires at about 50%, with Jigga What/Faith, Points of Authority/99 Problems, and of course Numb/Encore being steller tracks. The DVD is also worth a watch.
  5. Frequent Flyer – Rio de Janeiro
    An arbitrary pick up at SFO while waiting for a flight. First disk opens with some strong down temp bossa nova, gets weak towards the middle and end. Second disk pulls through with some faster beats and more vibe.
