speaking of the sonic, here's a couple of quick cd reviews of bands that i like but left me disappointed.
audioslave's "out of exile" - the same thing from the last album. nothing new. their sonic is regurgitated.
foo fighter's "in your honor" - repetitive. however, the acoustic cd is a step forward. their sonic is repetitive.
coldplay's "X/Y" - bland. boring. risk free. no sonic whatsoever.
queens of the stone age's "lullabies to paralyze" - unfocused. done before. sometimes bright. some sonic, just not enough of it.
