Art as music and Laurie Anderson

I have been listening to the new and innovative Laurie Anderson CD/Album/Digital Download  (what are we supposed to call these now?) titled Homeland.  It is a fascinating collection of songs— inventive, witty and intelligent music and lyrics that deal with many aspects of the current state of our nation.  I find it one of the most  interesting albums to come out since Radiohead's In Rainbows and Portishead's 3.  It's her first studio album in 10 years and I hope Homeland gets the acclaim those albums did.  There is an NPR interview here and a way to listen to the album for free.
I also like that she once did a concert for several thousand dogs.
