Having just finished reading 'Rain' by Don Patterson I'm left with the all too familiar, slightly bemused, 10,000 yard stare and asking myself what the hell was that. A far more eloquent view of the experience can be found here. However let it not be said that I didn't appreciate it, its just that I'm left feeling incredibly confused (think slowly turning gears and nothing happening).
Speaking of the under appreciated, Kings of Leon have a new album out and it seems to be taking a fair amount of stick. Fair enough the video for Radioactive is incredibly dodge on a Herculean scale dodge but if any other band around produced something like this they would be lauded from a height. I think its half decent and as good as anything this year. Damn the begrudgers!
