I have a problem

I have always bought music obsessively. I have made purchases based on album covers, band names, band members, buzz, reviews, similar genres, recommendations and more. Things have escalated since I started working again. I have not lacked this much restraint since I worked at the Music Plus on 17th street (they would cash my paycheck with my purchase). Here's a recap of what I have gotten my hands on in the last two months:

  • The Advantage - The Advantage
  • The Advantage - Elf Titled
  • Animal Collective - Sung Tongs
  • Animal Collective - Feels
  • Bad Brains - Rock For Light
  • The Bad Plus - Suspicious Activity
  • Behemoth - Demigod
  • Jello Biafra w/ the Melvins - Sieg Howdy
  • Black Heart Procession - The Spell
  • Karl Blau - Beneath the Waves
  • Boris - Pink
  • Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
  • The Clash - London Calling
  • Brian Eno + David Byrne - My Life In the Bush of Ghosts
  • Fad Gadget - The Best of Fad Gadget
  • Faun Fables - Family Album
  • Gnarls Barkley - St. Elsewhere
  • The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike
  • Head Like a Kite - Random Portraits of the Home Movie
  • Hella - Hold Your Horse Is
  • I Love You But I Have Chosen Darkness - Fear Is On Our Side
  • Knut - Terraformer
  • Liars - Drum's Not Dead
  • Melvins - Stoner Witch
  • Messer Chups - Crazy Price
  • Ministry - Rio Grande Blood
  • Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime
  • Mission of Burma - The Obliterati
  • Mogwai - Mr. Beast
  • Opeth - Ghost Reveries
  • Orthrelm - OV
  • Pearl Jam - Pearl Jam (gift)
  • Peeping Tom - Peeping Tom
  • Placebo - Meds
  • Some Girls - Heaven's Pregnant Teens
  • Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
  • These Arms Are Snakes - The Lion Sleeps When Its Antelope Go Home
  • These Arms Are Snakes - This Is Meant to Hurt You
  • Tool - 10,000 Days
  • Zao - The Fear Is What Keeps Us Here

The good news is that, if given the chance, I would only un-buy a couple of them.

Are you similarly afflicted? What is blowing your hair back these days?
