I did read a few books this year and enjoyed all of them. We watched a lot of movies and there are a lot that I enjoyed, the last blog entry had the 2 most recent movies we have seen.
I took this time to get some music recommendations from friends and listen to their likings and also spend a lot of time listening to all the music that is already in my collection. So for the last few months I have had no real exposure to what is new out in the music world. And now that people's Lists of 2008 are emerging...I have had a lot of time to listen to what people thought was the best throughout the year. And I like a lot of it.
So much, that I bought 2 albums on Wednesday night at our local Target...and I was surprised to see that these were there because they usually only carry main stream/top 40 albums.
I purchased this album listening to one track only off of NPR's list of the best of 2008. I had also heard of a few people that really liked Sigur Ros and I took all of that info with bold and blind confidence. (especially since the fellas on the album cover are in their birthday suits)
So if listening to music in another language is your thing, do check these fellas out.
The other music that I look forward to still getting into more are:
I know not everyone has the same taste in music that I do...so for sure take time to dive into these artists before going out and buying an album you won't like once you listen to it at home. I don't want to be solely responsible for you being out some money on music that you do not like.
If I ever do recommend Nickleback...please please please find me as soon as possible and commit me into the looney bin. I am sure I would have gone crazy to ever recommend them.
