So obviously Ed Sheeran ruled but there were a few notable new releases this past week. The Carly Rae Jepsen album is good pop music, but in the realm of Mandy Moore/Jessica Simpson rated material versus the superior produced songs by Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears back in the day. She'll do, but she's nothing special or anything to write home about. Uhh P!nk came out with a new album but to be honest I wasn't impressed with it at all - it was kinda clunky and formulaic in my personal opinion and a lot of the bonus tracks were better than what actually made it onto the album. Nelly Furtado also finally released her album and the sad thing is, it's not that good if I'm to be honest. It's very eclectic and experimental but as a whole it doesn't mix well and I like it mostly based on the fact that Nelly stuck to her guns and released it as she desired rather than go back into the studio and retool the album for her label. It's a mess, although I am expecting to give both her and P!nk's album second listens and see if they are better after hearing them again.
What I Watched
Didn't go and see anything this week, but started slowly watching 'The X-Files' from the beginning. It's something I was too wimpy to watch when it originally aired (heck I was afraid of 'Are You Afraid of the Dark?' tbh) and I am liking it so far but laughing at all the dated early 90's filming technology and dated electronics in general.
