Currently thrashing the head and heart self-titled album, iTunes genius this time you chose well, this time.
But sail upon the wind of lamentation, my friends, and about your head row with your hands' rapid stroke in conveyance of the dead, that stroke which always causes the sacred slack-sailed, black-clothed ship Charon to pass over Acheron to the unseen land here Apollon does not walk, the sunless land that receives all men.
Low-key funk/soul with tight grooves. Only artist in the neo-soul genre I've found myself liking.
Kanye West - Late Registration
A hiphop classic, apparently. I previously thought My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was Kanye's contribution to the hiphop canon. Colour me surprised when I found out his first two records were considered classics and one of them actually is better than MBDTF. Not that I think MBDTF is an amazing album - even though it's good - but Late Registration really surprised me with how great it was.
