Hey folks, thanks to every who dropped by and voted last time around. It looks like the Democratic process has decreed that next Tuesday I’ll be reviewing the Kaiser Chief’s second album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob. I’ve just this moment purchased it off of Amazon and shall put it into heavy rotation just as soon as it arrives in my hot little hands.
Also, in case anyone missed it, my review of Low‘s Drums and Guns is up. Link.
Now comes the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the list of candidates for next Tuesday’s purchase, to be reviewed on April 10th. Your options, as presented by Metacritic and augmented by a few choice options from Billboard and TopHitsOnline are:
Jarvis Cocker, Jarvis
Hilary Duff, Dignity
The Field, From Here We Go Sublime
Fountains of Wayne, Traffic and Weather
Kings of Leon, Because of the Times
Ozomatli, Don’t Mess With the Dragon
Partridge-Andrews-Barker Project, Monstrance
Sister Vanilla, Little Pop Rock
Throbbing Gristle, Part Two – The Endless Not
Paul Wall, Get Money– Stay True
Venetian Snares, Pink + Green
Timbaland, Timbaland Presents Shock Value
Chevelle, Vena Sera

*One note: I removed the new boxed set of The Wedding Present’s Complete Peel Sessions. Why? Because I don’t want to spend $77 bucks on a bunch of material from a band that I’ve never been that big on. It’s not that I think too many people would vote for it, but on the off chance that they did, I wouldn’t want to let them down by punking out and not getting it. Besides, no one wants to sit through me reviewing 6 discs worth of The Wedding Present.
