Of course, I got all this from wikipedia, so we'll see which ones actually pan out.

Anybody listen to the new oldtimers albums?

Paul McCartney, Ringo, Van Halen and Leonard Cohen all released albums recently.

I've listen to the first three and thought they were all pretty decent except Ringo's, which was pretty bad.

well, actually - it's OK. But it's just an EP and a bit too polished. I prefer their albums still, especially their last one. Exploding Head was PHENOMENAL. The self-titled was great too, but a bit more amateurish. Onwards to the Wall is too professional. But in APTBS land too amateurish > too professional.

Yesterday I listened to the first two CDs of Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International

obviously with this huge amount of songs some are bound to be better than others, but overall it's really not bad :)

the downside is, that I now have Miley Cyrus in my library, but that's the sacrifices you have to make for the good cause, I guess...

I feel the same way. A lot of it was really good, I especially loved the Johnny Cash/Avett Brothers cover of "One Too Many Mornings". But it is unfortunate that now both Ke$ha and Miley Cyrus are in my music library.

If you like your rock and roll loud and over-the-top, listen to the new Foxy Shazam album. Also, in a completely different direction, Air just released a score for George Melies' "Voyage To The Moon" and it's awesome.

I listened to that one already, it's quite good :)

Gorillaz released a new single together with André 3000 and James Murphy called DoYaThing for Converse
