    Superb album. Just starting to get into it.

    Here's hoping Christopher Owens can vanquish his demons, both for himself and for music. Owens and J.R. White are incredibly talented.

    I don't know how you want to describe it, but to me it takes all of the best aspects of Brothers and packs them into 11 fast-paced songs (I felt Brothers suffered from a bloated amount of tracks)...

    I'm really looking forward to buying The Black Keys and Chevelle cd's tomorrow. Two of my favorite bands. And, from what I've already heard, they're both going to be great albums.

    Couple of new downloads off of Itunes:
    The Horrible Crows 'Elsie' - Was looking around to see when The Gaslight Anthem is due out for a new album. Saw their front man had a new album out and checked it out. It is much darker than Gaslight but Brian Fallon has a fantastic voice.

    Amos Lee 'Mission Bell' - Really like his voice. It is a little dark as well, definitely not a roll your windows down and drive type of album. But good music none the less.

    Crazy Heart Soundtrack - Good combination of country voices in this album.

    Zac Brown Band - For my money probably the best two country albums I have listened to in a long time.

    Jason Aldean - A quality country album, if you like that.

    Which is a bit ironic, given that Windows Are Rolled Down....(a strangely dark song itself).

    I've been an Amos Lee fan for years, and some of the stuff on this album really gets me. Music for someone who is getting older and starting to feel the impact of what's gone before.

    Yea Windows Are Rolled Down is a great song. I just started to listen to him and I do find some irony in it. I often don't feel the impact of songs but I can see what you are saying. I do find it ironic when I begin to sing the lyrics and find myself saying "did he really sing that?"

    I saw them on SNL last weekend, and they seemed to be playing heavier, blues-based rock.

    I agree, it's fantastic. There's not a bad song on the album. And the 7th track, Sister, is so good I could listen to it all day. One of the best songs I've heard. From any band.

    I also like how they sound like The White Stripes a bit, especially in the 4th track, Little Black Submarines. I can't wait to see them live again someday.

    Good news: they'll be in Cincy (with another of my favorite bands, Arctic Monkeys, in support) on March 2nd...

    Re: What am I listening to? (Part II)

    The new Girls album is quite satisfying.

    As to this Wilco discussion....no doubt YHF is a 10/10...and I actually LOVED Wilco - The Album, A Ghost is Born, Sky Blue Sky, etc - suffice it to say I am a huge Wilco guy. But I was wholly disappointed in The Whole Love. I just didn't get it. A couple of tracks tickled my fancy but as a whole, I didn't love it. Wow, that was corny.

    I agree Jay Farrar is underwhelming live but, for my money, Uncle Tupelo is one of the best, most important bands in the last 20 years...at least for those of us who enjoy alt-country/indie rock.

    I'm sure many can chirp off a list of albums to dispute this, but I've found 2011 to be a subpar year in regards to new music. And its not the end of the world, more just a timing thing for me.

    Yeah, I'm going through those "best of" lists and not seeing much I enjoyed. Seems like it was an even more heavy electronic/hip-hop year than in the past. Lots of big name bands from my high school days released really unimpressive records too...
