Anyway, I'm already in an angsty mood and decided to drown my misery listening to my newly acquired music CDs which both have depressing and bleak aura, but beautiful music nonetheless.
@#%&*! SMILERS Aimee Mann A++
Another superb album by my most favorite musician. She can just hum in her CDs and I'll still rate it A++. And the title and artwork are so accurate as to how I feel about the @#%&*! (purple gum) smiler.:-)
THIRD Portishead A++
After 11 years they finally came out with this new CD which has a different sound from their usual trip-hop style. Beth Gibson's voice is still beautiful and haunting, perfect with the melancholy lyrics and wonderful instruments. Instant favorites: The Rip and We Carry On.
