Music post?

The summer doldrums are hitting me hard, so much so that I have very little to talk about, games wise. I did have about three hours in a car today, the majority of which there was a reasonable cell signal, so I listen to a few albums on my personal rotation. These are albums that I have been listening to, on and off, since college. In no particular order:

I think that everyone owned Crash during the mid 90s. This CD spent the most time in the 5 disc changer my room mate and I shared, providing a buffer between his Radiohead and Smashing Pumpkins and my Marilyn Manson and Orbital. Speaking of Orbital...

I first heard The Box in the middle of the night when I may or may not have been driving home from a bar. It took a bit of digging for me to find the album it was from. Once I found In Sides I bought the rest of Orbital's catalog as soon as I could. Being in college and poor, that took a while.

So Gwen, I head that Gavin has done you wrong. If you ever need a shoulder to cry on, I'm here.

This album has sneaked into my posts before. This is a great drinking alone disc. Not that I recommend that sort of thing. And finally:

Equal parts concept album, goodbye message to deceased father and (some I am told) soundtrack to House of Leaves, Haunted is one of the greatest things I have ever heard. Poe pretty much disappeared after its release, appearing as a guest singer on two Conjure One albums, and then nothing. There were label shenanigans involved which mere mortals don't understand. I don't care, it's been 16 years, I need more Poe.
