Happy Friday! It is about time it got here, I need this weekend! We have a handful of releases this week and some I am actually interested in hearing and I will highlight those in Blue as usual. We have a variety of styles this week to choose from so hopefully there will be something for you. Let me know what you want to hear and what release I might have missed as it does happen. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
- Bush – The Kingdom – (Zuma Rock / BMG): Gavin Rossdale and the boys are back. Bush is hit or miss for me, but they’ve hit enough that I try out their releases and I will this one. Here’s hoping for some solid rock this time around.
- Pretenders – Hate for Sale – (Chrissie Hynde / BMG): Chrissie Hynde and boys are back (that phrase sounds familiar…oh yeah…see Bush above). I have always loved her voice and the punk/new wave style. She is a legend and that is why she will get a spin.
- The Chicks – Gaslighter – (Columbia Records): The Dixie Chicks are back!! Wait…I’m sorry…it is The Chicks now which I think it as offensive as The Dixie Chicks…is that just me??? This band can’t catch a break, controversy surrounds them, but I still like their music. So let’s see what they bring to the game this time around.
And the rest…
- Kansas – The Absence of Presence – (InsideOut Music)
- Ellie Goulding – Brightest Blue – (Polydor Records)
- The Bacon Brothers – The Way We Love – (Forosoco Music)
- U.D.O., Das Musikkorps Der Bundeswehr – We Are One – (AFM Records)
