I'll keep this short, so you can go out and buy the album as soon as possible.

Damien Rice - O

Absolutely Spectacular. Not a bad song on it. I f you want to know what kind of music is on it, think Irish trad, but slightly more mainstream.

In short, buy it.

So far, best album I've heard of 2003 is White Stripes' Elephant.
Zwan and Pete Yorn were good as well.

radiohead vibe indeed, much more playful tho, user friendly even.. the rest is sorta the same, check out Solitaire, the title track, One with the Freaks, and well the whole thing is ekzellent,., it's the kinda stuff i like to hear when i need to be poked, not pusshed tho, poked. i dunno, the songs are real fresh.

i wasn't expecting anyone else to like em  :shock:

Officially 2002, but I only bought it like a month ago or so - Beck -Sea Change. The depth of music in this album makes it only more rewarding and interesting with every listen. Only album I bought from this year has been White Stripes' album, Elephant, which is great too. The most anticipated release for me this year is the new album from Outkast, which has been said to come out in May, but I have heard nothing new since that initial annoucement.

This only reminds me how behind I am on music. The last thing I bought was the new Nick Cave album, which was good but not great.

Gotta get White Stripes. The albums I'm most anticipating (i.e. will be at the store when it opens the day they're released) are the new Outkast, Radiohead and Fiona Apple discs. Gonna be a good summer (although I hear FA has been pushed to fall).

I need to do some serious catch up as well... been real poor lately, but evidently so has everyone else (no one is buying albums anymore)...

Most recent fav is Phrenology, which I didn't buy... just downloaded, but they deserve my fifteen bucks, so I'm gonna buy it anyway.

Mos Def gonna get Outkast and Radiohead... I don't really keep up on what's gonna come out, so I just recently found out about Outkast, there's probably a few others I'll really want coming out to that I won't realize until they've been out for a week or so....

I'll Check out this Damien Rice fella tho... be a download choice next time I'm gathering writin' music.

Phrenology is phan-phucking-tastic.

Jesus, that was lame. But true.

But yeah, Zep is the real deal...influenced every band after them in much the same way The Beatles do.  "The Song Remains The Same" still holds up.
