A few additions to the list
Good point Neil (about not wanting to chang CDs), however, I will be fortunate enough to have a lovely lady to act as my navigator/DJ and she also has much better taste in music than my girlfriend's liking of Madonna, Madonna, Madonna (who says that she can't hear any difference when her dad plays music on his B&W 802s than on any other soundsystem, but anyway...).
Since I first started this thread, I have spent quite a bit of time and money at Circuit City and Barnes and Noble. I recommend Circuit City for cheap CDs, all of their top 40 CDs are $12 all the time (although then again, how many of the people in this forum actually listen to top 40 cds).
My recent additions, which have not yet been listen to thoroughly, and will be put to the test when I leave for Boston in 12 hours include:Beatles - OneRadiohead - AmnesiacStaind - Break the CycleMoby - Play
(excellent CD from just listening to the 1st 5 tracks)The Fast and the Furious Soundtrack
(just thinking about this movie will get you pumped up to drive...FAST)
ummm... I think the title goes something like "The Music of John Williams 1969-1999"
(great double CD, it includes the theme songs from like every movie he's ever done like ET, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Jaws, etc. I think it will be great to study to when I get back to school in the fall)
Oh, and how could I possibly forget the Gladiator
So, any comments on any of these or new suggestions? Thank you everyone for reminding me to bring my G 'N R and AC/DC.
