What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Speak For Yourself / Imogen Heap
I was going to write something incredibly clever and insightful, probably about the contradiction between the soaring and very human vocals on this album and the cold category of Electronic to which it belongs. And it would have been good.

But then I went off to Amazon to do a little research on Ms. Heap. And discovered that the CD version of this... uh... CD... well, you might remember the furor over Sony's Copy Prevention software debacle, where they put stuff on some of their CDs that broke people's PCs. And installed even if you refused to accept their license. And refused to uninstall. And was defended by some suit at Sony with the dubious argument that most people don't know what a rootkit is, so why should they care? (Presumably he'd make the same argument about cancer. Or high blood pressure. Or the AMT.) Anyway, turns out this was one of those destructodiscs. Which is one more reason to like the iTMS. Because no matter how you feel about DRM, at least Apple isn't trying to turn your computer into a pile of slag.
