Now we are in to full swing in the new year. The albums are starting to come out and today we have a long list of releases. There will hopefully be something for everyone. There are bunch I am interested in, but might not necessarily buy right now. They will be streamed to start with and I will pick up the ones I like the best. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you like or are interested in. Thanks and have a great musical weekend.
- Starbreaker – Dysphoria – (Frontiers Records): Tony Harnell and Magnus Karlsson team up again with the band’s third album and first in over 11 years…damn…way too long. It is metal, it is hard rock and it is usually great. Can’t wait to hear this one.
- Rival Sons – Feral Roots – (Atlantic Records): Rival Sons are one of those bands you just fall in love with immediately when you hear them. Now on their 6th studio album they just keep getting better. They are straight up rock & roll with a heavy blues influence and worth a listen. Give them a try.
- Kiss – Kissworld: The Best of Kiss – (Mercury Records): Just what we need another greatest hits band. Come on guys…give us some new music or at least put some rare versions of some big hits on here. But being the sucker I am, this one is on order…or course it is the limited edition colored-vinyl that won’t be out until March 29th…but I can wait since it is just a greatest hits album. Funny how I complain about a greatest hits album, but I am going to see them in concert and that is basically what I will hear.
- Michael Franti & Spearhead – Stay Human, Vol. 2 – (Boo Boo Wax): This guys is really cool. There is something about him I like. It is his voice, his style, his sound…everything. Check him out.
And the rest I want to hear…
- Heart – Live in Atlantic City – (Rock Fuel LLC)
- Backstreet Boys – DNA – (RCA Records): Okay, make fun of me, go ahead…I am just curious about this one so sue me.
- Quiet Riot – One Night in Milan (Live) – (Frontiers Records): Another one I am curious about. I hated the last album, but maybe they work better live.
- Santana – In Search of Mona Lisa E.P. – (Concord Music): Duh!!!
