  • Spilt Milk

    • 10 out of 10
    • Jellyfish
    • The second and final album from this power-pop group makes me wish Jellyfish had been able to make just one more record together. The album is best enjoyed as a whole piece, flowing from one track to

    • Weather Report
    • This is Weather Reports quintessential line-up captured live. Jaco Pastorious and Peter Erskine join Wayne Shorter and, of course, Joe Zawinul to create this masterpiece.

    • 10 out of 10
    • Boards of Canada
    • This one will haunt you. From the first notes to the last, their sound surrounds you. BOC has put out a fantastic catalogue, and this album is a great starting point for a new listener. Jump straight

    • 10 out of 10
    • The Who
    • Quadrophenia is everything that Tommy wanted to be, a rock opera that told a story, but one where every song could still stand alone. It was also Pete Townshend's farewell tribute to the Mod

Apple Intros iTunes Pass

Apple added a new feature to the iTunes Store on Tuesday, the iTunes Pass, that lets users purchase content from their favorite artists before it's released. The feature works like an RSS feed in that it automatically downloads pre-purchased songs or videos once they are available.

iTunes Passes can include individual songs or complete albums, as well as music videos and other iTunes content. Apple says that when users purchase a pass, all of the items that are currently available will automatically download to iTunes, and the remaining items will download once they are available, too. As an added incentive to use the new feature, some iTunes Store items will be available exclusively through an iTunes Pass.

It looks like the first iTunes Pass item is Depeche Mode's new Sounds of the Universe album. Only one track from the album is available without an iTunes Pass.

This is incorrect. Right on the iTunes Pass page for “Sounds of the Universe” is a link saying “Go to standard version of the pre-order” where you can purchase the entire Depeche Mode album WITHOUT an iTunes Pass (in fact, the pre-order page lists an EXTRA remix track NOT listed on the iTunes Pass page… yet). The only current benefit of buying the iTunes Pass is that you get to download two songs (instead of just the first single) immediately, before the album’s full release.
