  • Mezzanine

    • Massive Attack
    • "Black Milk" knocks me off my feet in this collection of moody and eclectic songs. Massive Attack uses samples and keyboards in a very unique way, but not all the songs pack the same punch.

  • Kind of Blue

    • 10 out of 10
    • Miles Davis
    • The jazz album to end all jazz albums. Miles Davis and John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderly and the list goes on. The who's who of who's who in jazz have assembled for this monumental record. Get this

    • Modern Lovers
    • This timeless masterpiece is little known, but it has inspired almost as many bands as The Modern Lovers' own inspiration -- and only slightly better known -- The Velvet Underground & Nico.

  • Velocifero

    • 6 out of 10
    • Ladytron
    • "Back to the future" isn't the right turn of phrase for Ladytron's newest album,

  • De Nova

    • 10 out of 10
    • The Redwalls
    • Wow! Perhaps my 5-star rating is simply because the Redwalls are not only new and fresh (none of them older than 22!), or perhaps its because -- despite their ages -- they are able to totally capture

Zune HD to Hit Stores on September 15

Microsoft's iPod touch competitor, the Zune HD, is set to hit store shelves on September 15, and is available for pre-order now. Like the iPod touch, the Zune HD includes a touch screen interface and comes in 16GB and 32GB capacities.

Zune HD was unveiled in May, and looks to be positioned to go head to head with Apple's iPod touch. The new Zune will include a 3.3-inch OLED display with 420x272 resolution, an HD radio receiver, 720p HD video playback via a custom dock, and a built-in touch-based Web browser --presumably a modified version of Internet Explorer.

Apple hasn't announced new iPod touch models yet, but the company typically rolls out its media player updates in the September time frame, which might be an indicator that Microsoft is hoping on capitalizing on iPod owners that have been planning on replacing their old units next month.

Microsoft's Zune lineup hasn't, however, had much luck at overtaking Apple's iPod. Unless the Zune HD dramatically outperforms the iPod touch, Microsoft will likely have trouble yet again at stealing some of Apple's media player market share.

I would like to see how that OLED display performs out in Direct sunlight.

My guess, poorly
