The other new one I picked up was Paul Simon's So Beautiful or So What. Maybe I'm just too jaded these days, but it didn't move me either. Not bad, but underwhelming.

other than the waits,the only two that i keep returning to are the flaming lips 'soft bulletin' and the cure 'the top'...so i guess those are my big 3
Ditto, Mr. H, on finding the old stuff missed the first time around! That's what I've been doing for the last few years, mostly with Todd Rundgren, Genesis, Three Dog Night(!?), Isley Brothers, and James Taylor as well. I also picked up The Soft Bulletin last year as an experiment and was pleasantly surprised. (Those drums are a little cavernous...)
