Last time I walked into a CD shop, I walked out with about 10 items. That was in Guangzhou where each ORIGINAL costs between $6 to $8.

Opps! I did it again. I really should have known better.

The venue of my fall
THAT CD SHOP, Great World City. No puns intended.

The damage
Let's just say although the promotion price is the most attractive around town, I can get twice the number of discs in GZ for the same cost.

After sampling most of the discs on their listening booths (a very clever ploy!), my resistance fell by 70%. I just could not wait for a second trip to GZ to stock up my audio ammo. I need new tunes and I need it now - or then! Haha!

The culprits

1>Blackout - Britney
2>X - Kylie

>>>> move aside Indie music! Industrial groove is taking over the world! Madonna paved the way for the likes of Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado to gain mainstream.

3> Minutes To Midnight (SE Asian Tour versian with 3 Bonus Tracks) - Linkin Park 4> Corrine Bailey Rae (Special 2CD version) - CBR

>>>> don't you hate artistes who re-release their CD months after with extra booty???

5> The Best Of Andrea Bocelli/ Vivere - AB
6> Amore - Andrea Bocelli

>>>> Andrea who??? Yes, I swing from pure popular to high-brow neo-classical.

I like my music clean and simple -

> acoustic with good voice OR
> industrial with throbbing bass, slurry synthesisers and electronically-modified voice

That's 6 more to my more than quadriple towers collection. If you have been to my room, you will know what I mean. :)
