Friday New Releases – May 19th

Another Friday has arrived and as school starts to wind down for some and Summer is coming, there are a bunch of new albums for you to choose from.  Anything strike your fancy???  There are a few for me and they are highlighted in Blue.  There are more I want to hear, but these three are the ones I will attack first. Enjoy!

  • 170x170bb-34  Linkin Park – One More Light – (Warner Bros):  Their new song “Heavy” is doing well on the charts and features Kilara.  My kids love this song and it doesn’t sound like the Linkin Park of old.  I am interested in seeing what the rest has to offer.  I haven’t been thrilled with their current releases and hoping for some return to greatness with this one.

  • 170x170bb-2  Papa Roach – Crooked Teeth – (Eleven Seven Music):  Big fan of Papa Roach and so glad they are back with some more hard rock.  The Deluxe Edition of this gives you a live concert from The Fillmore in Detroit.  That means the Deluxe is a must grab for me.

  • 61XubpxqWQL._AC_US160_  The Dead Daisies – Live & Louder – (Steamhammer):  The Dead Daisies released their second album last year and now after two albums, bring us a live album.  With this talented group of musicians what is not to like and not to want…Definite Yes! for me!

  1. I don’t know what Linkin Park is thinking or doing with their new music direction, as it sounds more like The Chainsmokers. “Heavy” is a total bore as far as I’m concerned, and there’s been a huge backlash from fans. While I think it can be a good thing for artists and bands to change things up from time to time by going outside their normal comfort zone, Linkin Park has totally abandoned their awesome signature sound that they had for 15 years! If their new stuff was really good, it would be OK, but what I’ve heard so far is disappointing.

    I’m surprised to see new music from Fastball and Erasure, as I wasn’t aware they were still together. And it’s heartening to see David Archuleta is still recording new music. He has a lot of potential.
