P.S. > Van, the Used is from Utah... don't know if you like that type of music, or if you knew that, just thought I'd throw that out there.
I listen to lots of other stuff, but those are the albums that get a whole lot of rotations right now, and I only really chose stuff where I felt I could recommend the whole album (that is, of course, if you like that style of music), not just a few songs, which really disqualified most of the rap I listen to (Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Three 6 Mafia, Slim Thug, Kanye West, Notorious B.I.G., Chamillionaire, Young Jeezy).
What do you guys have in the IPod/CD player/Tape Deck/Turntable right now?
