It is yet another Friday and another long list of new releases. However, this week does not hold a lot that I am interested in giving a listen. Hopefully there is something of interest to you so let me know what you like.
The albums I am interested in listening to are highlighted in Blue as usual.
- Usher – Hard II Love – (RCA): Usher always has some great songs and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us on this release. He is the essence of cool, but this album cover is not the most attractive cover I have seen.
- Meatloaf – Braver Than We are – (Savoy Label Group): Usually Meatloaf and Jim Steinman put out great, epic songs. I am not hearing many good things about this release. One reviewer gave it a 35% out of 100%. Not sounding like much of a release. I will reserve judgment and listen to with an open mind… at least try anyway.
- Ryan Stevenson – Fresh Start – (Gotee Records): A Christian artist and I am always interested in picking up some new music. I heard one song and was really impressed so I figured I would add him to my must list for this week.
- Casting Crowns – The Very Next Thing – (Provident Label Group): Another release from this fantastic Christian band. They release, I listen. No different this time. I can usually guarantee a few great songs to add to my library.
- Led Zeppelin – The Complete BBC Sessions (3 CD Set) – (Rhino Records): If I can stream it on Apple Music, I will give it a listen. I will definitely pick up the one new song, “Sunshine Woman” (sort of new, just never released from 1969 I think).
- Aaron Lewis – Sinner – (Dot Records)
- Taking Back Sunday – Tidal Wave – (Hopeless Records)
- Against Me! – Shape Shift With Me – (Total Treble)
- Ken Navarro – Bonfire – (Positive Music Records)
- Willie Nelson – For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price – (Sony Legacy)
- Ian Hunter – Fingers Crossed – (Jjm)
- Die Antwoord – Mount Ninji and Da Nice Time Kid – (Zef Records)
- Carrie Newcomer – The Beautiful Not Yet – (Available Light Rec)
