No, this is not an April fool’s joke. Every month I try to pick the five best albums on AmazonMP3’s 100 $5 albums. This month has definitely got some winners, and here they are. I’ve put my short thoughts below each album:
Augustana – Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt
This rock album is one I come back to often. Augustana has got the goods–no doubt about it.
Leeland – Opposite Way
Good worship record. Leeland usually has solid lyrics and I’m always challenged by his writing.
Owl City – Ocean Eyes
Say what you want about this digital pop, but it’s catchy, and it’s good. I just listened to this album yesterday.
Sigur Ros – Takk…
Icelandic rock music with classical elements. Confused yet? Just listen to them.
Raphael Saadiq – The Way I See It
One word: classic. This is your mom’s music and your music rolled in to one.
