May 22 Notable Releases

A few of the 1,995 new and re-released albums coming out this week.

The National -- Boxer. Quirky lyrics delivered in a tasteful baritone -- obtuse songs, that seem to actually say something about something else. Could be the album that blows them up to be as big as Springsteen thinks they are.

Jeff Buckley -- So Real: Songs from Jeff Buckley. Some people's leftovers (or "Lover You Should Have Come Overs") are better than other people's masterpieces blah, blah, blah.

Ozzy -- Black Rain (Includes Bonus Ozzfest Ticket Offer). I have no idea if buying this actually improves your chances at getting the free Ozzfest tix -- but it will have guitar solos and lots of doubled vocals.

Pancho Sanchez -- Raise Your Hand. Dirty latin jazz... why are you laughing?

Anybody have an opinion about the National? I couldn't seem to enjoy that last record. Must have missed a secret meeting in the basement of my brain where they explained it.

Haven't heard much of National, so don't have much to gauge them on other than that Peabs likes them & he's the only person I know w/ >1000 friends on Myspace.
