I'd like to introduce a new category here at Disillusioned. You all hear about what tv shows, movies, anime I watch and books I read, so why not what music I listen to as well? Once you even read about a game, Final Fantasy 12, the only post in the GamerGirl category. Ooops, there are other games played and beaten but I never got around to reviewing them. I'm still playing Need For Speed: Carbon though I have beaten the game. Onward to music.

One of the many things I love in the world is music. I listen to almost anything. I am not much of a country or blues or jazz fan but they do have their moments in time in my life. I grew up listening to mostly rock music and was influenced by my sister with heavy metal. I can listen to anything from Sarah McLachlan to Marilyn Manson to Eminem to SlipKnot. (If you follow me on Twitter you'll know I listen to SlipKnot a lot at work through headphones... ) I love music. I'll listen to the Ke$ha station on IHeart.com when I need to get up and clean and start moving. You can't just sit still when listening to dance music like you can with other music.
I have many tastes in music and it's hard to listen to them all at once. Most days I will pick a station or a disc or a band and listen to them all day long at work. If they don't have enough songs to fill 8 hours then I'll put them on repeat or replay my favorites. I recently acquired Bush: Sea of Memories. If you were a fan of them when they first came out and haven't been paying attention, then you need to start listening again. This album is absolutely amazing. The Sound of Winter is beautiful and I can't get enough of it. It may end up replacing my favorite Bush song from their softer side.
If you didn't know or you don't follow Gavin Rossdale or BushArmy on Twitter (you should) then go to the View's website. They played The Sound of Winter live and it turned out absolutely beautiful. Gavin's voice still sounds as amazing now as it did when they first came out. He will sing and pull on your heart strings like he plays guitar, enough to bring that emotion to the fore and make you beg for more.
So go look at the video on The View and then head over to Amazon or iTunes and grab Sea of Memories or at the very least The Sound of Winter. I promise you won't regret it.
