Underscoring that there my music library is… eclectic, I’ve got Manowar, Depeche Mode, Van Halen, and Tori Amos on this list.  Not the type of lineup you’d expect to see at any music festival.

And if you haven’t yet, get yourself a tape measure and read House of Leaves while listening to Haunted… then loan them to someone, because no one should brave the underworld alone.

More good stuff in here, including a version of “Exit” by U2 from the improperly cut original CD pressing of the Joshua Tree, which was one of my first CDs. The end of “One Tree Hill” was erroneously spliced onto the beginning of “Exit”, which makes for some weird listening if you play the track alone.

Apropos to nothing, I do a mean rendition of “Ex-girlfriend” in Rock Band.

Two great tracks from Poe in here.  Poe had two albums, Hello and Haunted, which were both beautiful pieces of work. She had some insanity with her record label, and has yet to record a third after 13 years.  It’s one of those situations where the first two were so good that I really want a third, but I’m afraid it might not be as good.

Haunted was a weird album that served as the musical companion to an even weirder book, House of Leaves, by Poe’s brother, Mark Z. Danielewski.  If you’ve never read it,  highly recommend getting the book and the album together.  Also, a tape measure.   You’ll definitely want a tape measure.
