I'm supposed to be doing my reading for tomorrow's US Political History class... and Psycholinguistics too. But I can't be bothered.

I bought Steven Curtis Chapman's latest CD. He's one of the few artists I'll buy everything of, no matter what... just because I know he's so reliably good. (Other artists in the 'buy everything' category include Five Iron Frenzy, PFR, Cindy Morgan, Jonny Lang, P.O.D., Switchfoot, and Bobby McFerrin.) So... It's good, as expected. Great songwriting, and incredibly slick production this time (more money now that they're under EMI...) The instrumentation is thicker and... glossy. But there's something that bugs me about it. It's the guest appearances. Now, I'm all for musical guests on CDs--I think it's fun and keeps things interesting--but the way SCC (or his producers) used them was DUMB. He had three (THREE!) amazing guest artists appear on the album, Jason Wade (Lifehouse), Mac Powell (Third Day) and... wait for it... JONNY LANG (*swoon*). And did he really make use of these three amazing men? NO! They sing barely audible backup and Lang plays a great guitar solo that is basically drowned out by drums and electronic audio effects and noise. I was SO disappointed.

YOU HAVE JONNY LANG IN THE STUDIO AND YOU DROWN HIM OUT!?!? ARE YOU STUPID!?

*ahem*
