- Update: NIN's Trent Reznor releases song as GarageBand file
- NIN - With Teeth
It seems that Trent has adopted a pop sensibility on tracks like 'Every Day is Exactly The Same'. The rest of the album seems like a mix of equal parts Broken, Downward Spiral, and The Fragile, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's a new spin on his old formula. Links are at regnyouth.
Aimee Mann - The Forgotten Arm
Aimee Mann's concept album recreates a 70s feel with her warm storytelling, bright and prominent guitar, and mellow keyboards. Supposedly recorded in 5 days, but it doesn't sound like it! It's one of the best albums I've heard this year and might be the best effort yet from Mann. It's not a very daring or groundbreaking album, but it's enjoyable nonetheless.
- White Stripes - Blue Orchid (MP3)
Honestly, it sounds terrible.
