Enkä mä rakasta ketään - Pohjolan Ilmari
Tuomari Nurmio style folk rock with twisted, humouristic lyrics. Love those bombastic drums on some tracks.

Highlights on the first listening: "Subterranean Homesick Alien", "Gates of Eden" and "Bob Dylan's 115th Dream". The latest especially, I love Dylan's funny tracks.

The Man-Machine - Kraftwerk
Got the 2009 re-master (English).

Doesn't quite reach the synthetic beauty and groove of "Trans-Europe Express" but it's still a brilliant robot synth pop record with classics like "The Robots", "The Model" and "Neon Lights" on it.

At first I thought this was boring but it either improved towards the end or I started warming up for it. Especially the last two songs, "Ballad in Plain D" and "It Ain't Me Babe", are some excellently written love songs.

Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan
Got the "original mono recordings" box set which I'm going to listen to in chronological order.

This wasn't as bad or mediocre as I expected: simple acoustic folky and bluesy tunes greatly mixed.

Agaetis Byrjun - Sigur Ros
Somehow hadn't heard this until now. I've always felt that Sigur Rós is too "polished" for my taste and thus a bit boring and that impression stays still. Although I gotta say that "Staralfur" and "Olsen Olsen" are fantastic examples of modern songwriting.

I'm sure it'll grow on me.

Alligator - The National
My second The National acquisition. Not sure yet how much I like it; it sounds pleasant and all but not as good as High Violet, yet. "Secret Meeting" and "Karen" are cool songs.

Weird album, most of it sounded like random bleeping and blooping but I feel there's something wonderful hidden in this monster. The last track is quite a ride.

Wow, this is pretty damn good from the 65-year-Young (heh). The overuse of delayed vocals irritates me a little but the distorted guitars sound crunchy in a great way.

"Done Got Old" is one hell of a first track. I expected the whole album to be of its awesomely minimalistic, melancholy style so I was a little disappointed. Pretty good stuff though.

Small Change - Tom Waits
Not a big fan of his '70s stuff but this seems a cool album. It has better (and funner) songs than Closing Time and some entertaining tales to the lyrics.

Maybe I should drink more in order to appreciate this bar blues period more.
