Albums I spent too much time introducing myself to yesterday instead of doing homework (click on the covers for more info):
Bruce Springsteen - Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. (1973)
If you only download one song from this album go with 'Spirits in the Night'
Lykke Li - Youth Novels (2008)
If you only download one song from this album go with 'Dance Dance Dance'
This is one of the best new albums I've heard this year.
