New CDs

March 5th, 2005 No comments

When I was out shopping earlier, I bought a couple of CDs (as well as the Comic Relief Little Britain DVD, which I’m yet to watch).

The first CD I bought was “Start Something” by the Lost Prophets. I’d heard a couple of their songs which I thought were brilliant (Last Train Home, and Summertime), and expected the album to be a more metal sound and less commercial than the tracks that I had heard. I wasn’t expecting it to be as metal as it is, so I’m still undecided if I like it or not.

The other CD I bought was “The Invitation” by Thirteen Senses. Wow! Fantastic album. I’d heard “Thru The Glass“, and that became my first paid for download for my iPod and has been played on it pretty much constantly since; therefore I decided to take a gamble and buy the whole album. I love it, it’s a wonderful mix of Snow Patrol, Coldplay and maybe even Radiohead. I suggest you go and buy this one.

As a side note, on the Thirteen Senses album, there is a deftly hidden track – and it’s a good way of hiding it too. It’s not stuck on the end of the last track 10 minutes and 15 seconds after the song ended, like most other CDs. It’s actually at the start of Track 7. If you listen to track 6 right to the end, Track 7 will start with a time of -1:30 which is the hidden track, or you can start track 7, and press your “Rewind” button to get to it. It’s worth the hassle, trust me!

Anyway, this will probably be my next purchase. I’m absolutely loving Dakota at the moment, so can’t wait for the rest of the album. I must say that I don’t think that the ‘Phonics have beaten “Word Gets Around”, which is a bit of shame, so here’s hoping that this is a turn-around for them!

Music To Develop By

January 11th, 2005 No comments

I stumbled across this posting today on Dan Fernandez’s blog, which gives three tracks that have been written for developers to write code by. They are described as “Progress/Tribal House”, and all three are roughly an hour long

I’ve had a quick listen to one of them (via the streaming option) and it didn’t sound that bad. I’m currently downloading all three to play them locally (all perfectly legit).

So, if you’re looking for some music to write code to, they might be worth a shot!
