Two excellent CDs I've been listening to lately

The first is the Unicorns' Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone, which I bought some time back and played a lot for a while but have recently taken out again. Despite an at times almost too high whimsy level, one of the handful of best new releases of the last several years.

The other is Ray Davies' Other People's Lives, which I didn't play much the first time around. It's really quite good although the playing (his vocals aside) is, if solid, a bit generic. Still standing as one of the finest songwriters of the rock era, and I'd rate this outing above any other release of the last ten years by any of the old war horses with the exception of Dylan's Modern Times.
