A Musical Note

Just a note about the music I've been listening to lately. If you don't like the band Tool or hip-hop, you can skip this one.

In news that might please Pinder, I bought Tool's Lateralus the other day, after having heard it on 107.7 The End's top 107 albums weekend thing on the way up from the States. It sucks that they're not coming to Vancouver on their current tour. I would have gone for sure.

I saw N.E.R.D.'s phenomenal In Search Of... CD for 10 bucks at A&B sound today. Since my copy's in storage, I almost broke down and bought it. "Tape You", "Provider", and "Bobby Jones" are my favourite tracks. This review by W&A is spot on, even though if I see if for cheap, I'll probably by the original version of the album too.

Been listening to some really 'sugary' music lately. (My definition of sugary: music that I know is bad for me, but which I still like.) Call me crazy, but I'm likin' Nelly's "Hot in Herre", Cam'Ron's "Hey Ma", and Amelie's "Why Don't We Fall in Love (remix)", a song I've been particularly obsessed with lately, playing the MP3 over and over and over.

Vancouver's The Beat is pretty damn good. I didn't listen to it very much up until now, but now that I've had it on whenever the guys I'm crashing with are not paying attention, there's been some good stuff. And as creepy as I think he is, the new LL Cool J song is pretty head-bobbin' too. Portland's Jammin' 95.5 FM still kicks The Beat's butt though, but just barely.
