New tepid No. 1 album replaces old tepid No. 1 album


So after five weeks at number one, Eminem’s utterly bland Recovery was knocked from the Billboard’s top spot by another gray-scale release, Avenged Sevenfold’s Nightmare. The “metal” record moved 163K units to Eminem’s week six tally of 159K.

I don’t know how to feel about this. On the one hand, “Not Afraid” is Em’s best single since  “Lose Yourself” but the rest of the album is pop-rap nonsense with a few lyrical gems scattered throughout. It’s not a great record and I don’t know if it ever deserved the number one position. On the other hand, A7X’s album is worse: centerline-riding, pop-metal shlock that doesn’t deserve the top spot, either.

Both artists are certainly getting worse with every release, little by little.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
