New Music I like

I recently rode my bike to the local music store (that right I still buy CD's) and picked up two new albums buy Sigur Ros and My Morning Jacket. I have now had a chance to listen to the two albums, and I can say that I recommend them both highly. Each album depart slightly form earlier work, but they still retain that essential essence that long time fans of both bands will love. Both albums also show an expanded range with both bands incorporating more intense upbeat tracks, and slower more introspect melodic ones as well.

Haven't listened to the Sigur Ros album yet, but I have to say I was less than excited when listening to Evil Urges. I expected a big jump in style (ala It Still Moves --> Z), but I just can't really get myself into it.

Well, I can tell you the first time I hear it I wasn't very excited but after to listing to the whole thing play through a few time Im totally starting to get hooked. Tracks like Touch Me I'm Going To Scream Pt. 1, I Amazed, Librian, Remmants, & Touch Me I'm Going To Scream Pt. 2 are my favorite tracks so far. But I think for he the whole album real shines when I listen it all together and let go of what I wanted it to be. Perhaps if you have never heard the firs two you'd like it more. As for the Sigur Ros everyone I've talk to so far has liked it.
