I am opinionated when it comes to music. Yes, I have become a music snob. Oh, I tired and tired not become a M.S,but over the last couple years I truly believe I can tell you what CDs you should own. Today the Cd you should own is Tidal by Fiona Apple. She came on the scene with this ten track masterpiece. I love a girl that can play the piano! Her voice and lyrics are well above average. They are the kind of lyrics that have you saying "Oh, now I understand" after you've heard the track 12 times.

Jennifer Hudson's CD comes out in September. I have been waiting for this since she was on American Idol! I have been fan since the first note I ever heard her sing. People tripping out because the CD cover. They say it was doctored,since she more of a full-figured girl. She isn't getting the slack, but the record company is. Either way she is fine to me.
