Time to Buy Some New Music
I just ordered several CDs from Amazon.  Eight of the nine CDs, with the exception of the Wilco album, were cited in the July 9 Entertainment Weekly as "new-alternative albums you need to own."  I suspect that taking recommendations from EW destroys any residual street cred that I used to possess.

It was interesting how well Amazon's database profile of me predicted these purchases. I started by choosing the new Wilco album. Then Amazon recommended I also buy The Shins' CD. Soon I had chosen all the other albums, with the exception of the Killers' CD,  just by picking Amazon's subsequent recommendations. Amazon's software works all too well.
Here's my haul. Use the comments feature to tell me what you think.
