Next week: Amon Amarth crushes all!
Like I said in my 1st post, this seems to be a largely metal crowd on this board, of which I'm not into at all. So I do realize my tastest differe from most here.

Also, the bands I posted definitely trend much more to a younger crowd.

Still waiting for my TV on the Radio LP to come in the mail

I'm not a huge Jenny Lewis fan but I might have to check it out just to see how bad the packaging is.

It basically looks like a CD single - just a single cardboard slipcase, with all the performance credits printed on the back. It's not even a didgipack, which while I still loathe, would have been better than this. For a full price listed CD, this is the cheapest packaging I've seen in a while.

Yes, it's terrible. I picked it up on Saturday (haven't listened to it yet, though). Radio promo CDs have better packaging.

One of my arguments against downloading albums (from iTunes or otherwise) is to have the album artwork, liner notes, and such. I should've just cashed in my iTunes gift card on this one, but it's too late now since I already opened it.

Count me as a metalhead who likes the list in the first post. I haven't gotten to TV on the Radio yet, but I heard King of Leon and it is certainly different then their other work, which is OK by me. I'll have to get Jenny Lewis, since I thought it was coming out in October.

Also this week (via import apparently) Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell have a new one coming out. The first one was fantastic, and this one can only be that much better.

Shit, nice reminder, I've love Campbell since Belle & Sebastian, I'm definitely going to have to track this one down.

I've gotten to listen to all these CDs a couple of times though now, & feel 2 are dissapointing & 2 great if not phenomenal.

I've got to say for all the praise the TV on the Radio CD is rather dissapointing IMO. Felt almost like a Gnarles Barkley CD & I swear at times "Golden Age", it sounded almost exactly like Flight of the Conchords, I could just picture Jamaine singing it with one of the pseudo-satire videos in the background.

Jenny Lewis- Acid Tongue - At first I didn't know what to think, but upon repeat listening, again she has put out an album of the year effort. The Next Messiah, is by far the best solo song she has ever done. "Jack Killed Mom" is a killer song, "Godspeed" is beautiful, "Bad Man's World" her voice is just so sexy on it, there really isn't a bad song on the album, maybe "see Fernando", but even that has grown on me. The only dissapointment for me is when I heard that Chris Robinson, was going to be on the album, I was really hoping for a duet type song, sort of like the Postal Service, as opposed to him just being in the background chorus.

Mogwai's The Hawk Is Howling was released last week, as well. I haven't heard it, but I'm sure it kicks ass.
