Friday New Releases – November 5, 2021

  • 51yv4yWl25L._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Abba – Voyage – (Universal Music / 1221 AB / Polar Music): If you thought things were bad with the pandemic, they are, but you know the world is doomed when we actually get a new Abba album. Who had that on their Pandemic Bingo Card??? After 40 years, our prayers have been answered or is it our nightmares came true…not sure which. Still, who doesn’t want to hear the new Abba album. I’ll give it a spin…why not!!! Things can’t get worse, can they?????
  • 81ksIKEj15L._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Crazy Lixx – Street Lethal – (Frontiers Records): Sweden is the hottest Glam Rock country in the world. They have given us hundreds, if not thousands, of Glam Rock bands over the years and one of the really cool ones. Always worth a listen!!
  • 91voYTlXgeS._SX522_  Hanson – Against the World – (3CG Records): The MMMBoop boys are back. Okay, they are really way more than that song. They are still putting out great music even after all these years. Always worth checking out. I wish them the best.

And then there is all the rest.

  1. Bullet for My Valentine, that’s a band I haven’t heard about in a while! Nothing for me this week, though I did listen to Billy Idol’s Christmas album this morning, heh.

  2. Ahh, the Hip! I bought the Saskadelphia EP already. I’ll likely pass on the reissue. For anyone outside of Canada, this is a solid album. The band is a national treasure.

    As for Radiohead, I didn’t tune them out after Amnesiac, but I had a hard time listening to their output after that. I’m just not into blips and beats that much. I think I’ll check out Crazy Lixx, but it won’t be for a while. I’m still digging through my October haul.

  3. What’s with all the Christmas albums? Glad that u sorted out that this Billy Idol release is the same one that I already have. It is, isn’t it? Still haven’t listened to mine, not once.
    Yep, Crazy LIxx for me too and Bullet for my Valentine. Fans of the Dark sound like fun too.

    Have fun with tonight’s show!!

    Having a Garfield moment and heading over to kitchen for some lasagna.

  4. Hey now, don’t you be dissing ABBA! I certainly wasn’t expecting to ever hear new music from them either, but it’s heartening that they decided to put out a new album, just like Billy Idol did. And speaking of Mr. Idol, you crack me up John that you’d buy his Xmas album, despite the fact you don’t like it.

    There continues to be an astonishing number of album releases week after week. Many artists complained about the quarantines and lockdowns, but from what I can tell, not being able to tour gave them lots of time to write and record new music. By taking advantage of the technologies available today that make recording music remotely and socially distanced fairly easy, it’s no wonder we’re seeing so much new music being released. I haven’t followed Hanson, and wasn’t even aware they were still putting out new music, but the song you shared is pretty good.

    1. I have every album he has on vinyl, so naturally had to complete the set with this one. I’m a little nutso that way.

      Yes, so many releases and it is exhausting. I can’t wait for the last few weeks of the year as there really aren’t enough to do post so I get a break.

  5. I can’t imagine what photoshoots must be like for the Christmas albums. Taking pictures with Christmas trees, twinkly lights, hot cocoa, Santa Claus, and ugly Christmas sweaters in May or whenever the album was made. That’s so strange to me.

  6. I’m really enjoying a bit of Hammock lately so that’ll be on the list for me this week. Will check out the ‘extras’ element of Kid Amnesia but as much as I enjoyed Kid A, that era didn’t get me as much as OK Computer did.
    Abba fall into my worst nightmare category especially given that the release of their album and that of Adele’s has had a massive impact on the vinyl pressing chain – it’s the power of bigger labels to bully their way in. Apparently if an artist / band don’t get their album wrapped up in the next few months there’ll be no chance of it being pressed and out before 2023 now as the pressing of 500,00 (!) copies of Adele’s album and similar levels for Abba.

    1. Nice on Hammock. I had never heard of them, but they were high on a couple sales list so I added them.

      Yeah that sucks on the supply chain for vinyl. I have 3 or 4 albums that keep getting pushed back and I probably won’t get until after the first of the year now that should’ve come the last couple months.
