I can't remember what the Ode to Joy sounds like. Thankfully, Mom just got me a copy of Beethoven's Ninth, which I just finished ripping in preparation to put it on my Zune, and I'm now listening to the fourth movement and waiting for the Aha! moment to hit.

...there it is.

Over the course of the last few hours, I've ripped:

3 Hebrew Religious Music CDs
4 Japanese Dramas (anime-related)
2 Techno-Dance CDs
2 Classical CDs
2 Anime Soundtracks
2 Japanese Pop CDs

(Eclectic? Me?)

I was impressed - WMP managed to pick up the album information for everything but one of the Hebrew CDs.

There's a new CD out from angela (yes, that is actually the correct casing for the band name), but if I don't like it better than the last one, I'm not going to buy anymore, regardless of how good their stage presence is. Atsuko has a good voice, but she loves digging really deep into the notes, really tearing them out, and I don't like that style much. It roughens the songs too much for me. Like, Asu e no Brilliant Road was great, but several of the songs from I/O, and a couple of the ones from Sora no Koe.... Well, we'll see.

I saw in Kinokuniya that she did a cover of "You Get To Burning." That's... well, suited to her, but somehow disturbing. Don't ask me why. I don't know why.

She sang it at Otakon a buncha years ago. It was actually reasonably good.

Wow. She also likes to cover Cruel Angel's Thesis, and I've heard her do that as an encore several times. ^^

The Ninth Symphony is the closest I ever come to any sort of religion or spirituality.
