Friday New Releases – March 1st

Happy Friday and welcome to another Friday of New Releases.  If you like hard rock and heavy metal, might be a good week for you…otherwise, not much else.  For me, it is slim pickings this week with only 2 I am mildly interested and a decent Tom Petty greatest hits collection.  Outside of that, nothing else for me. My choices are in Blue.  Let me know if there is something you like or anything I missed.  Thanks and have a great weekend.

  • 51tEDu1QeKL._SS500  Queensryche – The Verdict – (Century Media Group) – Ever since Geoff Tate left, I haven’t given them much of a fair shake, but that will change with this album.  I am going to give it a spin and see wha the buzz is about.  Todd La Torre definitely has the chops as the lead singer so he deserves a chance.  I will let you know what I think.

  • 81r6evhbjnl._ss500_  In Flames – I, The Mask – (Eleven Seven Music):  This band has been around since 1994 and yet I didn’t discover them until their last album ‘Battles’ in 2016.  I will check this out and maybe start exploring their back catalog of about 11-12 albums.  They are a Swedish metal band if you were interested, pretty heavy stuff.

Maybe will look into the next two…

  • 91-I4azk34L._AC_UL115_  Tom Petty – The Best of Everything: The Definitive Career Spanning Hits Collection 1976-2016 – (Geffen Records) – I know, we don’t really need another greatest hits package, but this looks like a nice set and plus…it’s Petty baby!!!
  • 31lfFHUfvEL._AC_US436_QL65_  Weezer – Weezer (Black Album) – (Crush Music/Atlantic):  I might dive into this one, but jury still out.  They are hit or miss with me.

And all the rest…

  1. Don’t bother with Weezer, John. Dreadful album. I spent my commute listening to that and yon Teal album. Both dreadful. Though, in fairness, the uninspired covers album is a good deal better than the Black album.

      1. No worries, John. I know there will be folk out there who will like it and while I’m happy for them, I couldn’t let someone I know suffer through it.

  2. I gather from a marketing perspective, weezer’s hitting it out of the park (dropping the surprise covers, appearing on Fallon’s classroom instruments, even have a theme park in the Fortnite video game) – but musically…!
