I went on a mild cd shopping spree
Tool - 10,000 Days
Tool - Aenima (I figured it was about time I own this...)
Pearl Jam - Pearl Jam (the new one)
Pearl Jam - Rearviewmirror (best of)
David Gray - Life In Slow Motion
Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise (on my sister's recommendation)
Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlanticism
Miles Davis - The Complete Rebirth of Cool
I haven't gotten around to the Pearl Jam yet, but I've listened to the Tool and David Gray, and have just started on Death Cab For Cutie. I really like the David Gray album - all around excellent songwriting - Ain't No Love might be the best ballad I've heard all year. The new Tool is well - like Peter said, Tool in fine form - an awesome thing for the ears.
Death Cab For Cutie is interesting - on the surface it seems pretty poppy but it's got some depth to it that I'll need to listen to a little more.
Sufjan Stevens is a really interesting artist. He is doing a project where he travels to each state, spends some time living there and then writes an album about that state (things that happened there, local stories, famous figures, etc). It's very ambitious and he goes through a really wide variety of styles on Illinoise. Somewhat like a cross between Bright Eyes, Elliott Smith and Wilco. Some of the tracks are pretty boring, but there are a few stunners and as an album it's a really interesting experience. Definitely worth a listen.
