Another great Friday with another huge selection of releases. However, the selections aren’t “huge’, if you know what I mean. There a handful I am interested in hearing, but nothing I am running out and buying. Streaming for me on these…unless one is so good it warrants a purchase. I wonder if I have gotten through all the ones from last week (I am writing this two weeks out) but I doubt it. Anyway, my choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear or if there is anything I missed. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!
- Keane – Cause and Effect – (Island Records): Keane’s debut in 2004, ‘Hopes and Fears’ was fantastic and their second was pretty great as well. As a result, I do enjoy checking out anything they put out. Nothing has lived up to those two releases, but still find a golden nugget in each release and they hope is the same on this one. “Is It Any Wonder” why I would keep trying? Not really. Great English Pop.
- Slash with Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators – Living the Dream Tour (Live) – (Snakepit Records): Let’s see…Slash √…Myles Kennedy √…both of them together √…and Live √…I don’t think I need any other reasons to “check” this out do I.
- Jeremy Camp – The Story’s Not Over – (Sparrow Records): Christian Rock singer Jeremy Camp is back with his 12th release and he sounds as great as ever. “Dead Man Walking” is exactly what I like from him. A rock song with a little pop sensibilities and a great beat mixed with a lot of energy and power. If the rest of the album follows this formula, this could be good.
And the rest…
- Zac Brown Band – The Owl – (No Reserve/BMG): I’m not huge on new country, but Zac is pretty cool.
- Blink 182 – Nine – (Viking Wizard Eyes/Columbia): I’m not sure why I care because they haven’t been anything since Tom DeLonge left, but I will listen anyway…you never know…maybe it is good.
- Liam Gallagher – Why My? Why Not. – (Warner Music): Liam Gallagher of Oasis tries again to show he is the better brother, but does anyone care…probably not. I just want something good to listen to…maybe this one will be. The song below is pretty good and I love his singing.
- We Three – We’re All Messed Up…But It’s Okay – (Palawan Productions): These 3 called We Three were on America’s Got Talent and they were pretty good. The kids liked them as well. It is an E.P. so I will give it a try and see what they offer. I think they had an album last year that wasn’t bad. We will see.
No video for this E.P….yet
