Friday New Releases – November 16th

Wow! Another HUGE week of releases. There are a ton I am interested in and some I have bought already or will be very, very soon.  There is a wide range of artists covering Rock, Metal, Country, R&B, Pop, Showtunes, Christian, Alternative, Hip Hop and many more.  There has to be something you will be digging.  If not, let me know and let me if there is.  I love to know what people are in to and whether or not I am missing out on anything good.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.  Have a great weekend!!

  • 516Ip89wAfL._SS500  Needtobreathe – Acoustic Live, Vol. 1 – (Atlantic Records):  If you read my site, you know this is one of my favorite bands so it is no wonder this tops the list.  The vinyl is on order and I hope I get it on release day, but doubt it since it is from the NTB webstore and not Amazon.  Oh well!  The album is a collection of acoustic tracks from their acoustic tour last year.  All classic NTB tracks and these guys are fantastic live, so high expectations.

  • 51Gk2XlnhfL._AC_US436_QL65_  Chris Cornell – Chris Cornell (Deluxe) – (Universal Music):  This set looks S.W.E.E.T.!!  An extensive greatest hits compilation of his  Soundgarden, Audioslave and Solo work among some rare treats as well.  This is another must have in the physical form.  It is on the Christmas list and if I don’t get it, I will immediately buy on Amazon Christmas Day.

And the rest in Blue are streamable, but not sure if I will purchase…

  • 51DKTzXqchL._SS500  Nita Strauss – Controlled Chaos – (Sumerian Music):  Alice Cooper’s outstanding guitarist gets own time to shine on this debut solo album.  I am interested in hearing what she has to offer.  There should be a lot of amazing solos and just all around greatness.  Turn it up!!

  • 81BZj3LyoOL._SX522_  P.O.D. – Circles – (Mascot Label):  Boom!!  The P.O.D. boys are back.  After 25 years together they are still going strong.  Haven’t heard anything yet (even the video below I haven’t watched) and can’t wait to put it on and see what new they bring to the table.

  • 51zX7Y9DnfL._SS500  Mark Knopfler – Down the Road Wherever – (British Groove / Virgin EMI):  Knopfler…that is enough right there.  I am in!!

  • 41LKfNdAD4L._SS500.jpg  Michael Buble – Love – (Reprise Records):  Could this be his last album?  If so, I hope he goes out with a Bang!  I really enjoy his voice and style and would hate to think this will be it.

  • 81WPW5Nf6mL._AC_UL115_  Rush – Hemispheres (40th Anniversary) – (Mercury Records):  The Live disc is where its at!!  Give me, Give me, Give me.

    1. I missed that one. Luckily, it is a good week for me. I would say I hope next week is better for you, but I know it won’t be as next week list is the shortest list I have ever done for a Friday Release post. Actually, it will start getting slim for about a month starting in the middle of December.


  1. I can’t think of anything that I’m interested in today. I’ll check out Old 97’s and I might listen to yon Black Eyed Peas album, as I’ve liked the singles and it’s clear Fergie’s absence is a bonus.

  2. Just purchased Rush and the Stones Voodoo Lounge Uncut…I have been waiting for this Stones Live Voodoo show since 1994! Caught that tour twice that year!
    Today is a good day for buying music!

    1. Understandable on the Cornell one. This will be my first, so I am happy that one will be at home when I get there.

      That Nita one is badass!! I listened to it this morning on the way to work and it was sensational. She ends with a cover of Queen’s The Show Must Go On and nails it. I didn’t pre-order this one, but a trip to the record store this weekend will solve that.

  3. You are missing the following albums:

    Memphis May fire- Broken (hard rock)
    Amongst the Giants- Obscene (SCREAMO METAL)
    Mumford and Sons- (alternative)
    And Set For The Fall- Still just breathing (Hard rock)

    I personally didn’t like these releases but we’re fairly popular and surprised you missed them.
