For Christmas I received multiple iTunes gift cards. I was thrilled. I don't really like acquiring CDs anymore mostly because of the case and our current lack of storage.
So in hopes of receiving some gift cards I compiled a list of albums I'd like to buy.
Here are my acquisitions:
1. Pride and Prejudice Soundtrack. I love everything about this movie and that included the music. I love the album - it's so soothing and lovely and wonderful. In fact I might listen to it right now. *Ahhhh....so good* Favourites are: Dawn - this theme seems to run through a lot of the songs on this album. I'll say it again, So Good.
2. Kings of Leon. This was a flukey purchase and wasn't actually ON my list. I had been hearing from a friend how great Kings of Leon are and then I happened upon them in iTunes and did the album preview. LOVED IT. They have several albums out but I purchased Only By The Night. Ack. It's a good mix of southern rock and the frontman's voice is raspy and good and delicious. :) It's a good album. Favourites are: 17, Use Somebody and I Want You.
3. The Juno Soundtrack. I really liked this movie (a lot) and thought the music was really indie and cute and again, sampled the album and ended up getting it. There's really only one song I don't like (drops a bunch of F bombs and is all Bush-bashy and political) but the rest of it is really fun! Favourites: All I Want is You
4. Brooke Fraser's Albertine album. Jamie requested this actually and while I'm still not sold on her, it's pretty good. I dunno, it didn't really GRAB me and honestly I think she sounds like Nicole Nordman from back in the day. I like her, but I wouldn't say I love her. (Sorry Nadine).
No favourites yet, but I'm not writing it off at all.
5. City and Colour's newest album Bring Me Your Love. Classic C&C and I love it. I don't know it well enough to have a favourite other than The Girl which was on a wedding favour CD I got and instantly liked it.
Hm, I guess that's it. I still have enough for 2 albums (I think) and on my original list are: Peter, Bjorn and John - Writer's Block and Stars - In our bedroom after the war.
I don't really know these other two that well and I've got enough albums to occupy my ears with for a few months so I may hold off and see what tickles my fancy then.
