Things I Picked Up From The Grammies

I just bought Confessions on a Dance Floor by Madonna and Demon Days by Gorillaz - thanks to their smashing (how British!) opener at the Grammys . The album review? Confessions sounds like the old Madonna, seriously. When I mean old, I mean Borderline-type Madonna, not the Justify My Love type. Of course, worthy of accolade is the other producer, Stuart Price, also known as The Thin White Duke. The pulsating flux of his beats rejuvenated the Madonna franchise. MY favorite track? Get Together and Jump - it really sounds like Madonna singing to a Daft Punk backdrop.

I'm also glad I picked up Demon Days - I've been terribly intrigued by the album, ever since DARE came out. To sum up Demon Days, having an alternate persona, a cartoon one at that is much appropriate to their sound. Springy, and eclectic, for the lack of a better word. Weird but alt-pop, nevertheless. O Green World and DARE are my stand outs for this one.

a late reaction, but I just don't understand how U2 could win so many grammys/grammies this year...

Let's just say Bono has a lot of lovable extra curricular activities that endear him to the Grammy voters. That's what I think at least.

I'm not saying they don't deserve it, it's just that it's a tad too conspicuous a win.
