Woops, never posted here! My partner was ardgedee. He sent me 2 very entertaining and unique albums.
The first one was The Verlaines, Juvenilia

These guys are great. The sound is an almost pop-ish early 80's alternative, but the part that I love the most is the lyrics.
"Sitting up late
The ash in the grate
His pretty face goes prison pale
There's a shadow tapping on the window -
His old lover's come in from the wind and rain
And he dreams burning memories
The girl ain't at his door - he's just getting bored
Oh he can't refrain 'cos he's got it on the brain
Wants to see the bright lights, gonna do it again
Pyromaniac, ain't no turning back" - Pyromaniac
He also included a second cd, Danger Doom - The Mouse and the Mask

Really entertaining, as any hiphop cd with appearences by the cast of adult swim would have to be. The music itself is good in and of itself though, so it's still good the 2nd 3rd etc. etc. time you listen to it, unlike a lot of novelty albums.
All in all, Ardgedee was a great exchange partner, who along with sending the albums fairly quickly and answering messages promptly, has a great heart sending a bonus cd, and most also has a GREAT taste in music, Thanks man!!!
