This is the big week that we have all been waiting for. No, I am not talking about the new Coldplay. The world must wait one more week for the album destined to be the biggest album of the year. I am still not sure how Coldplay became as big as they are. I really remember selling the import of their first album almost 10 years ago, back when nobody knew who they were. Now they are the biggest thing ever. I really don't think Coldplay needs much help in selling records. But iTunes has partnered with Coldplay and plays the commercial with the new single about 100 times per day. I have gotten a little sick of the Coldplay...but for some reason I like their new song. I guess it is the power of Apple. I had resisted getting a Mac for so long but am now so happy to finally have one. I guess they somehow got a hold of me. I guess I am not as strong as I thought I was. I was always strong enough to resist commercials and advertising in the past, but I guess I just gave in.
So what is really out this week is the new album from My Morning Jacket. It is called Evil Urges. I know that I have talked about My Morning Jacket a lot lately --at least I feel like I have. Some of those conversations have for sure been in my head, but I know I have also mentioned them on my blog a couple of times. I had held out for a while on My Morning Jacket as well. They got their start back in 1998 and it seems to have taken me almost 10 years to get into them. It took that little movie called I'm Not There to finally bring me around to falling in love with My Morning Jacket. I have slowly given time to each of their four albums and fallen in love with all of them.
