RX Bandits - Halfway Between Here and There + The Resignation. First time listening to them. Since Herr Johnsen is always going on about how great they are I figured I should get around to it finally. Musically, there is a quantum leap between these two albums.
The Resignation is their first really good album, but everything after it is better. Halfway is still just straight up cali ska punk, and is not very good. What you really want to hear is And the Battles Begun. That and the next two albums are full-on godlike.
Yngwie Malmsteen - Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in E-flat Minor
Ha ha! Bummer :)
Evelyn Glennie - greatest hits 2CD comp. Includes two Bjork collaborations, "My Spine" and "Oxygen"; a piece based on a dance described in Frank Herbert's Dune called "Matre's Dance"; a peppy hi-hat solo called "Sorbet No.7: Hi-Hat Playout"; plus a cover of Born to Be Wild, and of course, Flight of the Bumblebee.
This sounds insane. Will investigate!
Voivod - The Wake
Seeing them tomorrow!

Matt
