Friday New Releases – February 5, 2021

Welcome to the First February Friday of the month. There are a handful of releases this week and I am sure you will find something. There are two this week that are of interest although no purchases will be made unless they are great. Apple Music will be my choice of streaming platforms for those two albums and they are highlighted in Blue. What are you interested in this week? What have I missed? Let me know in the comments your thoughts on the releases. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!

  • 81EmQMCe92L._SX522_  Foo Fighters – Medicine at Midnight – (Roswell Records / RCA): I will admit, I am kinda burnt on Foo Fighters and have been for years. I don’t feel they have been as strong as of late and I got a little Dave Grohl overload over the years. But I will give this a listen as I do all their albums as Dave has earned that respect.
  • 51Aq-ObuH1L  Todd La Torre – Rejoice in the Suffering – (Rat Pak Records): The current lead singer of Queensryche is finally tackling his first solo album and I think that is great. I hope it doesn’t sound anything like Queensryche because then what would’ve been the point of doing a solo album. I am not a huge fan of his version of the band, but he is a great singer and does an amazing job with them so I will give this a try.

And all the rest….

  1. I’m interested in hearing Todd’s album. Just got the early years 79-81 box set on cd! Just to be in the game gotta dig up Done with Mirrors, haven’t listened to it in ages. Last time we did this was with that hob album?

  2. Foo Fighters, eh? Think the last thing that was worthwhile was The Colour and the Shape (sorry, Foo fans!). They have definitely made the same album more than once.

    The releases I’m interested in this week are from Hayley Williams and Walking Papers.

    1. This one is a little different. I’m not saying it is good, just a little lighter and more pop sounding in places. Hayley tricked me and I wasn’t able to get that in my list as she waited to last minute to announce.

  3. It’s a little ironic that Tate and LaTorre both came out with albums around the same time. It took me a few seconds to get into Tate’s song but once I did, I liked it. As for Todd, the song you feature here reminds me more of Helloween than Queensryche but that’s probably just me.

  4. I only know the Foo Fighters because their drummer was in the Queen documentary, “The Show Must Go On.” But yeah, not much of a Foo Fighters fan. Other than that, there’s nothing really here for me. But I appreciate you for doing this John.
