Amazon $5 album sale

Holy gumballs, Amazon has 100 albums for $5 each. This is very exciting if only because Jeff Buckley's Grace is one of those albums. Stop what you're doing and go out (stay in) and get this album (download the mp3 of the album). Then listen to it over and over again in your room, on your headphones, and play Track 6 (Hallelujah) over and over again and read all sorts of meaning into the line "love is not a victory march" and wonder what the heck that has to do with cutting your hair and bathing on the roof, and regret that you didn't play this song walking down the aisle (or In My Life, or Canon in D, for the love of ice cream) and remember that The Big Fella also vetoed it as a first dance, then maybe google your ex-boyfriends and call it a day! Sometimes I forget that this isn't Helene's Bad Mood. Anyway, buy Grace. It's super fantastical. If you have an extra 5 bucks burning a hole in your wallet, check these bad boys out:

Billy Idol, Greatest Hits (Don't hate. Dancing With Myself and Catch My Fall are awesome and not even in just a nostalgic way.)
Kings Of Leon, Because Of The Times (Not including the link because you're better off without this album. I haven't heard it but, trust me.... I'm an expert in bad music.)
Carole King, Tapestry (What?)
John Mayer, Continuum (ha ha)
The Beach Boys, Endless Summer (including Don't Worry Baby -- very very dreamy)
Rage Against The Machine, Rage Against The Machine [Explicit] (Is Tom Morello overrated, or what? Please discuss.)
Eddie Vedder, Music For The Motion Picture Into The Wild
Silversun Pickups, Swoon (Amazon MP3 Exclusive Version) [+Video] [+Digital Booklet]
Matisyahu, Light
Coldplay, A Rush Of Blood To The Head (Warning Sign and Amsterdam. Enough said.)
The Smashing Pumpkins, Siamese Dream
Simon And Garfunkel, Live From New York City, 1967
30 Seconds To Mars, A Beautiful Lie

Everclear, So Much For The Afterglow
(Santa Monica Blvd. in my Jeep Wrangler on my way to my multistate bar review class, singing at the top of my lungs to Father of Mine. Oh 1998.)
Duran Duran, Rio (2001 Remaster) (I'm not going to tell you my favorite track because it's too emabarassing.)
Ice Cube, The Essentials [Explicit] [+digital booklet]
Various Artists, Sex And The City: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Roxy Music, Flesh And Blood (Rio wishes it was this album.)
Nada Surf, The Weight Is A Gift
