Adorable, I just can't get bored of listening to these spoken word -albums Kerouac recorded 'bout ten years before his death.

Music for the Native Americans - Robbie Robertson & the Red Road Ensemble
An interesting mix-up of traditional Native American sounds and popular music. "The Vanishing Breed" is especially enjoyable.

Very refreshing and beautiful pieces of music. I'll might like this even more after a few re-spins.

Kari Peitsamo ja Ankkuli - Kari Peitsamo
A big bunch of acoustic short songs with more or less insane lyrics. Gotta love it.

Together Through Life - Bob Dylan
I kinda like this new Dylan. Lyrically it isn't quite astonishing as it was in his younger years but there's still some very good music here.

Jou jou - Asa (Avain)
Goodie. Lyrics and beats of Asa are ingenious as always and everything just fits brilliantly. "Jou jou", "Mikä mikä kylä" and "Olkoon!" might be the songs I liked the best.

Elements of world music combined with sort of trance-like beats and stuff = fascinating. I still gotta listen this through a few times more so I can get even deeper into these interesting soundscapes. Highly recommended.

Bone Machine - Tom Waits
Took a few listenings for me to get this but when I did, it really hit me since this one is incredible in every way and perhaps the best Waits I've heard so far (Swordfishtrombones is a good challenger though). The overall feeling is very raw and rough and so on and there are many great songs, such as "Dirt in the Ground" or "Goin' Out West". Almost worth five stars.

/edit: Bought it.

Murder Ballads - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Bleak, dark and brilliant. I especially love the closing of the album; the epic "O'Malley's Bar" followed by a great cover of Dylan's "Death Is Not the End".

It's Only Rock 'N Roll - The Rolling Stones
"Time Waits for No One" might be my favorite song from the Stones (alongside with "Beast of Burden" from Some Girls) but otherwise this is kinda unremarkable and simple rock, y'know, it's okay but nothing more.

Kid A - Radiohead
I did expect something a bit more stunning but t'was still very fine indeed. I love the first half but I'm afraid the second doesn't sound quite as amazing to me but oh well, gotta listen to it a few extra times, perhaps I'll understand the stuff deeper then.

Standup Comic - Woody Allen
I hadn't really had the chance to experience the standup stuff of Woody before I came across with this and well, it is goddamn hilarious and the audience is acknowledging it too as they are continually cracking up. It's a shame there doesn't exist too much video recording of this period of his career (or at least I haven't found any expect a few shabby clips), I'd love to see some.

Incredibly relaxing, beautiful and mood-filled music from the series which is of course one of the greatest animations ever made.

Leijonaa metsästän - Asa (Avain)
It's alright but I expected something better since Terveisiä kaaoksesta is one of the greatest Finnish albums I've heard so far. "Teollisuusalueen lapset" is an excellent song in every way though but otherwise it's kinda forgettable.

Various Positions - Leonard Cohen
Very good one. Has many elements from Leonard's first folky albums, especially lyrically but it's all been refreshed with this new 80's sound with synthesizers etc. Not as radically as in I'm Your Man though but anyways.

Modern Times - Bob Dylan
This new Dylan is kinda cool after his mostly-not-so-good stuff from the two previous decades (haven't heard any album completely though but I've listened a fair amount of the songs... gotta dig into the records some day), it resembles a bit of his 60's production but still has a completely new and fresh touch in it. Worth listening.

Absolutely magnificent stuff. Deep lyrics, very moody feeling and fancy melodies, just wonderful. "Saimaan rannalla" and "Riivaajat" are worth complimenting but I could really mention every song on the album here.

It's a bloody shame that the guy was performing here at Oulu on a local club last weekend but since I'm such an underaged runt I wasn't able to get in. Fuck.

Beatles for Sale - The Beatles
Early Beatles. The songs are melodically quite simple rock pieces but there are some very clever and not-so-simple bits of lyrics, especially on the ones written by Lennon.

Acoustics - Martin Tallstrom
Quite atmospheric and very experienced guitar playing. Part of the tracks are kind of forgettable but the acoustic guitar version of the theme of Twin Peaks and the "Whiter Shade of Pale" -rendition are however very cool ones.

Saatana saapuu Sörnäisiin - Laineen Kasperi
I do like the newer record Olet tässä a bit better than this older stuff of Laineen Kasperi but this one is still a very, very tense album. I'd call "Aamu kuus" and "Muukalainen idästä" the highlights of it.

Ivalo - Vesa-Matti Loiri
Great renditions of Finnish rock songs by Vesa-Matti Loiri whose raspy voice is absolutely wonderful. "Aavaa preeriaa" is particularly brilliant.

Mainly instrumental songs from the man + "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" which itself makes this worth listening (brilliant song although it's been raped with a huge amount of mostly bad covers).

Time Fades Away - Neil Young
This was kinda lame, considering it's a Neil Young -album from the 70's which usually is the definition for greatness. The songs aren't very catchy or remarkable in any way and there ain't really anything that would lift it above average so I'm not exactly surprised Young doesn't himself like this one either.

Past Masters 2 - The Beatles
Some great Beatles-tunes in this one but nothing particularly new. "Don't Let Me Down" is superb.

Yes, more of that diary crap of mine (with an exception of not including the dates this time) with such a superb and original list title BUT this time I'm gonna try writing the occasional shortish comments in English. Pay attention to the word 'try'.

I'm not including re-listenings, just the ones heard for the first time.
