I hope that this bunch ends up as good as the last ten I got from them ... those were quite listenable top-to-bottom, although (with a few exceptions) I find it hard identifying which one sounds like what ... I guess that's why they ended up going for a penny, good but not great, "like other bands" but not with their own "sound". One of the best things from these infrequent binges is getting to hear some really interesting "international" music ... one of my favorites from the last batch was by a French "world music" group called Le Duc, and I would have never encountered them otherwise! I also end up "pushing my boundaries" in picking up stuff that I would normally not seek out, like some jazz guitar or strange New Age stuff.
At least using Amazon (I pull up the album that JayAndMarie have listed and check out the 30-sec audio clips), I'm able to filter out stuff that irritates me (there were several tonight which had five-star reviews but were like fingers on the chalkboard), but at a penny each (OK, so it's more like $1.26 each with shipping), I'm able to load myself up with a lot of new music for less than the cost of one discount disc!
Yeah, I know ... I should be sleeping.
