New in May
- Tori Amos - American Doll Posse – Each of the 5 persona on the album have their personal blogs, more details at the wikipedia page for the album (May 1).
- Groove Armada - Soundboy Rock – Unpredictable (May 10 US release).
- Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight – Highly anticipated. 4 years since Meteora; too long a wait. They seem to have dropped the Nu Metal sound, I am not sure I like that (May 15).
- Black Book (Zwartboek). Paul Verhoeven’s new war time drama/thriller playing in last year of WWII in the Netherlands. Betrayal, tragedy and revenge. 8.0 rating at IMDb ( No release date for the US, but May 1 at Amazon UK).
- Pan’s Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno). A dark, amazing movie. Ranked #1 for 2006 and #45 all time at IMDb. It is not too late to see it in a theater. Too bad New Line doesn’t produce HD DVDs (May 15 - US).
