Where's the Music?
The last album I bought was the remastered version of John Lennon's Imagine -- an album that I find still holds up after all these years. But where's the new stuff? In May and June, there was a whole flurry of music I bought or wanted to buy -- the new Wilco, the new White Stripes, the new Angelique Kidjo. Now there's nothing. I haven't bought anything new since Icky Thump, which was released in June. I know that coming up on the horizon are the new Melissa Etheridge, the new Annie Lennox, the new Jill Scott and the new Meshell Ndegeocello, but this has been a long dry spell with no new music I've been interested in. That's all the whining for today.
