New White Stripes.

Like their other records, I had to listen to it 3 times before I got it.

It's good...not quite as good as Elephant, but it's growing on me.

What is there to get about the White Stripes? I like it cause its simple. Guess I don't listen to the words at all.

I know it's not music, but I have started watching Hitchcock movies after seeing my first one ever a month ago.

Hitchcock is the man! You should look for one of Donald Spoto's two books about him (one is a biography, the other a book about his films) to get some insight into the man.

Have you started playing the "Spot Alfred Hitchcock" game yet? He makes a very brief appearance in practically every one of his American-made films.

Now playing: A Clockwork Orange soundtrack

Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but most new artists don't do much for me. Most of the CDs I buy are new music by artists I'm already familiar with, or CD releases of older records.*

Lately I've been listening to Stevie Wonder's albums from the early to mid 70s:

Music of My Mind
Talking Book
Innervisions
Fulfillingness' First Finale
Songs in the Key of Life

[Tangent] * In a Supreme Court decision concerning New York City's attempt to ban concerts in Central Park, Thurgood Marshall wrote this classic bit of rock criticism: "New music always sounds loud to old ears."[/Tangent]

Snow Patrol

...and a hefty helping of Coldplay, perhaps the greatest mediocre band ever.

Rumor has it that it's the last White Stripes CD too.

I like it, but it's not nearly as good as their previous CDs. And I absolutely hate the opening cut, Blue Orhcid. To me, it sounds way too much like Lenny Kravitz sounding way too much like Hendrix.

And I hate Lenny Kravitz.
