- The Red Tree
: This album is absolutely beautiful, raw, hard-hitting, all of the above. I haven't stopped listening to this album and it is, by far, my favorite album of 2006 so far. Be on the lookout for my review of this disc early next week. Also DEFINITELY pick this up on Tuesday.
- 37 Everywhere
: Another solid pop-punk album being released in 2006, it may not be as instantly catchy as most pop punk albums, but it holds much more substance than most. I'll discuss this more tomorrow when I post my review of this album. Pick it up this Tuesday.
The Flaming Lips
- At War With The Mystics
: This album is like a box of chocolates, with each song, you never what you'll get. Cheesy metaphors aside, this album is another very good release for 2006. If you like your rock and roll to be random, fun, intelligent, and abstract, then definitely check this out. In stores now.
School is almost out for us college kids, so I rec those with stressful finals, projects, presentations, etc., to eat healthy and get plenty of sleep so that you don't burn yourself out. Summer vacation is just a few weeks away!
