OUTRAGEOUS! + some CD reviews!

I was watching TV last night when I saw a commercial for ASTROMobile advertising their new Phone Tattoos or something like that. It was just a simple, plain ad, definitely not worthy of the gazillions of ringgit Astro sucks up every minute from its subscribers who don't have any other choice of satellite TV.

At the end of the ad it says,

"It's Funky!"
"It's Outrages!"

Okay, I didn't notice the rest because my eyes had popped out of my head. "Outrages"?? ASTRO's 60 second advertisement not even undergoing spell check from a director? Was it not even checked before it was sent to be circulated on all the TV channels?

Surely ASTRO can afford better designers/directors/copywriters/spell checkers.

CD Spree!

I went on a wonderful CD buying mission today. I was planning to get the Kingdom of Heaven soundtrack and Ciara's album. Unfortunately, the former was not released yet and the latter was sold out. Instead I bought the new one by Télépopmusik called Angel Milk, French Kiss (compilation), the new one by Garbage called Bleed Like Me and the CSI Soundtrack.

Here's a review so far:

Télépopmusik Angel Milk : Very nice. Much smoother and a more sophisticated and slightly different sound from the first album Genetic World. Sounds just a teeny weeny Delerium-like according to my sister. Maybe that's why I like it. The sounds are less funky electronic-y and more ambient-y.

French Kiss (from Intentcity Records) : A compilation of songs which are supposed to be Paris-y and romantic. I must agree. Maybe not romantic, but they sound very delicious. I especially love the first song, Tu Es Le Seul by LornaLee, and the last track, French Movie by Loner. A few French songs, very smooth, very chilled and pretty sensual.

Garbage Bleed Like Me : Personally I prefer Beautiful Garbage to this, but it might grow on me later. I just bought it for the loud factor before I slowly die out from all the chilled music playing in my car. I like Shirley Manson's vocals. I usually like females singing on loud rock songs.

CSI 1st season Soundtrack : I haven't finished listening to all, but I can tell you I will love it! Every time I watch CSI I fall in love with the music they play. It's a great buy, I tell you! You've got deep grooves mixed with alternative tracks, but always sound great together. On the whole, an upbeat, deep groovy sound.
