It is already April and I can’t believe how fast time flies. We just got back from New York City for a family vacation and what a great time we had. I love that city!! Now, what do we have new this week you might ask. Well, we have a lot of different things, Metal, Rock, Southern Rock, Pop, Christian and so much more. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want, if anything.
- The Dead Daisies – Burn It Down – (Spitfire Music): John Corabi and boys are back with yet another Dead Daisies release. They are pumping out the music and thankfully so. Since Corabi came on board, I have really loved these guys. And coming of Corabi’s recent Live album playing his one Motley Cure album in its entirety, I am ready for some more.
- Thirty Seconds to Mars – The New Album – (Interscope): Jared Leto and company are finally returning with some new music. He shares his time between movies and music and although I like his movies, he is one of the few actors that actually has some musical chops and Thirty Seconds to Mars rarely disappoints. Looking forward to this one as I have loved the first song and here it is…
- Blackberry Smoke – Find a Light – (3 Legged Records): Blackberry Smoke are keeping that Southern Rock/Country blend music alive. Hailing from my hometown of Atlanta, they always get my support. They are nothing short of amazing so give them a shot.
The next three are Various Artists albums celebrating two classic artists. The first is a collection of Johnny Cash poems sung by Chris Cornell and so many others. Then we have not one, but two collections of Elton John covers from some big named artists. I might have to check these out.
