Music for your ears

Not a bad music release day with a couple of folks I like putting out new CDs, though some efforts were a tad lackluster.

- Minutes to Midnight by Linkin Park - Man, this is awful. Seriously, it's as if the guys simply forgot how to perform. It sounds nothing like their previous albums, which I really liked, and is filled with unimpressive and uninspiring tracks.

- One of the Boys by Gretchen Wilson - Surprisingly strong. The two released tracks are definitely underwhelming (particularly the one featuring John Rich), but the rest of the album is solid, country, beer-drinking music with There's a Place in the Whiskey and There Goes the Neighborhood being really strong.

- Sky Blue Sky by Wilco - Not bad. Sounds a lot like their earlier stuff, which isn't a bad thing at all. I really like the flow on You Are My Face.
