New CDs

Posted by Tim Riley Sun, 06 Nov 2005 15:54:00 GMT

Yesterday I bought three CDs. First was the album Road Apples by the The Tragically Hip. I sought this one out based on a last.fm suggestion linking it to Hawksley Workman. After a first listen I would pen it as unremarkable early-90s Canadian Rock, but I will give it a few more chances.

The two other discs I picked up were much more satisfying. The store had a bin full of cheap classical music, so I chose a couple of pieces that I really should know: Handel’s Water Music and Royal Fireworks Music, as well as Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty suites. I have immensely enjoyed these from first listen, and will be sure to listen to them a number of times over as I spend this week cooped up studying for my final uni essay.

    Hey Tim, I had almost forgotten but I am very sorry not to have gotten back to you on MSN a little while ago. Only half of the time I appear online I am actually there at the computer. Hope your exams are swatting along fine and you are enjoying your creative new music selections.

    Hey Paul, thanks for your message. Don't worry about MSN. These things happen :) I'm a bit worried about my paper - I need to skidaddle on it this evening and get it finished!
