I’ve spent nearly 2 hours trying to decide on what to get with the iTunes gift certificate I received for christmas. I’m having a hard time committing because most of the albums I really want aren’t actually on iTunes. I do take some pride in saying that, yes, but I’m kind of disappointed. Not much MFDoom/Mad Villain, nothing from The Duo, lots of partial albums and a surprising bulk of lame jazz. I’d like to buy recent music but so much of it just isn’t appealing to me. I keep flipping between allmusic and iTunes. I wish iTunes had tabbed browsing. The navigation don’t really let you explore without losing your tracks.
So here’s my current top five potential purchases.
- The Reverend Horton Heat – Revival or Lucky 7
- Redman – Muddy Waters
- Bob Dylan – Nashville Skyline Remastered
- Mos Def – The New Danger (despite the poor reviews)
- RJD2 – Since We Last Spoke
