I listened to a few new albums today. I haven't listened to the Killers album but I've never really liked them but kind of liked what I heard when they played SNL. Rivers Cuomo Alone II is a million times better than Alone I and probably the best tracks of his I've heard since Pinkerton. Kanye West's 808's and Heartbreaks blows except for maybe a couple songs. This one's kind of embarrassing but I really liked Blackout so I listened to the new Britney Spears album which kind of sucks too. Back to the cheesy top 40 pop instead of the interesting, underground pop sound on the last album.

Nobody here is on Rateyourmusic.com? Seriously, that's the best music website out there. What the Cafe is to fantasy sports is what RYM is to music. Sign up and start rating music and spend hours looking at charts and genres... and add me as a friend- my username is johnfgillson.

On track 7 now. Pretty solid. Especially like 2, 3, 5, and 6. Have yet to hear any "house/techno", though honestly I wouldn't mind since I'm a fan of electronic music.

I'm not a big fan of Wilco, Billy Bragg or Woody Guthrie but those Mermaid Ave. albums were pretty good especially Vol 2.
