So i use iTunes as my music player app. I downloaded the new one, version 8. This Genius setting it has is well... genius. While i do make mixed play lists, I've always had a hard time just downloading one song. I listen to albums. What this means is i have gigs and gigs of music on my hard drive that i really haven't listened to. Now you can make smart play list to listen to them in a rotation but that is using the tags and on any rock album you might have fast and slow songs that work for the album but not for a mix. This Genius play list is taking your song information and others, correlating it then playing other songs from your library that match the song you picked. it's very, very good.

There is a kind of Skynet feeling about the whole thing though.

Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen; A collection of their mp3s that someone uploaded on the pirate bay. I don't think it was one solid album. Awesome stuff.

 Always been a huge Stones fan, but for some reason Sticky Fingers has always eluded me. WOW. Downloaded it today, and behind Let it Bleed and Exile on Main Street it is probably their third best work. This was a great era for them.

really? I'm still trying to come to terms with it after 4 or 5 listens... I hate the drums and the vocals so far but I love the guitars and bass! I can't actually recall the last time I listened to an album where the drums and the bass were so out of sync.

 Only one listen for me, so maybe I'm a little over excited. A lot of really long songs, but very heavy. Not old school, but I don't think we'll ever see that Metallica again (except in concert of course). Building on the direction they started with St. Anger.

 Fair to say that with the exception of "That Was Just Your Life" and "Judas Kiss" not a lot of tracks stay with you after they end. I'll play it a lot over the next couple weeks and render a final verdict.

Both songs make me want to  aaaaaaaaaa (sorry, Bugs!!)

I spent a train trip today listening to 'Edge of Seventeen'. It was playing through the speakers of the smallest emo kid I have ever seen. He was tiny and probably about 13 but he had the whole eyeliner and hair-brushed-over-the-eyes-cos-I'm-so-emo look. He was nowhere near the edge of 17 and the look on his face made me struggle to stifle a laugh. He was concentrating so intensely with a look of absolute awe for Stevie Nicks. Funny, funny kid.

So, to comment on this thread, I had my ear-thingies in but no music on. I was enjoying watching this kid too much.

My Australian mate is bringing me Metallica's Death Magnetic next week. I can't buy it here. I have asked him to buy " Echoes" by Pink Floyed for me as well.
