I hadn't really heard anything but Dog Days Are Over and Shake It Out until a few months ago, when I casually put in my girlfriend's copy of Lungs and became an instant fan. She's a much more talented artist than many people realize, and has a combination of power and creativity not seen often in the music business these days. Not to mention that both her albums are very well-produced, too.
I've only heard Ben's My Friend, and it didn't really enthuse me that much. Would it be worth listening to other songs from the album, or is it all pretty similar?
I saw High Hopes for sale today, and considered buying it because I generally like Bruce Springsteen's recent albums more than most people do. The Rising, for example, is on of my favorites of his across any decade. However, I've seen some really terrible reviews for this one. Care to chime in with your opinion of it?
Have a favorite? There's plenty of material to draw from, so it's hard to get bored of The White Stripes.
