Alright, so we all know now what we've suspected all along: the new Gorillaz album kicks ass. I'm a bit dissapointed that Del couldn't swing by the studio for a second outing, but MF DOOM (and the plethora of featured artists) more than make up for his absence.

What I'd like to talk about is an album that you may have looked over this week. Common's Be is a perfect example of what it means to combine purposeful poetry with competent, if somewhat understated production. Kanye West has proven that he should put the microphone down and stick to sitting at the sound boards. Check it out.

Speaking of music production, Ryan has by now relayed to everybody the events that have taken place, with him picking up a guitar, and the beginings of something cool taking place. There is a lot of work to be done before anything vaguely listenable can be counted as a song, but I'm willing to make it happen.
