Nothing really had me ready to spend this week but I did make it out to the local shop Tuesday. On the list: the new Ozzy album and, hopefully, the new Scorpions disc. With my $3 off coupon for the Ozzy album, I started the hunt…..
Ozzy Osbourne – Black Rain – $9.99: Wasn’t going to pass up a new Ozzy album for 10 bucks, especially when you can get two free tickets to Ozzfest with it! The artwork, or lack of, was different than what I’d seen on the Net but I snatched it anyway.
Southern Lord sampler CD – Free: Nothing better than getting something for free. 11 bands, 11 songs…..I’ll listen to see if there’s anything good.
Unfortunately, there was no Scorpions album, I’ll order online. Puzzled by the Ozzy artwork, I went to Best Buy and Target to make sure I got the right CD. Sure enough, they all had the same plain, drab digipak without art. Not sure what te deal is with that. Maybe a limited edition? I’d sacrifice the two free tickets for a jewel case, artwork, and booklet.
