Another great Friday of new releases this week. I’m telling you this is shaping up to be a great month. I have another item this week on order that will hopefully be there when I get home from work. We have lot of Rock this week which is always good, but so much so that there is no way I will get to it all…ever! My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what I missed and what you might be interested in hearing. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful music weekend. I know I will!!
- Michael Sweet – Ten – (Frontiers Records): Lead singer of Stryper is here with his 10th solo release…10 is hard to believe, but it is true. I just did a Michael Sweet album ranking and can’t wait to see where this falls on the list. I am hoping for some hard and heavy stuff. Check out the song below and go gran this one.

Everclear has been around since 1991 and was started by leader Art Alexakis. When they were at their height, the main three guys included Art, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund and this to me is the classic line-up. This was the band at its peak. All the hits you know, “Father of Mine”, “AM Radio” , “Santa Monica” and “Wonderful” just to name a few.
After the disappointing sales and reception of the band’s 2003 album, Slow Motion Daydream, Craig and Greg left the band. Thankfully, Art continued Everclear with now a revolving door of musicians. But don’t kid yourself, the band is Art’s and it doesn’t matter who the players are, you want Art’s vocals and sound as that is all that matters.
I am going to go through and rank 12 albums which does include a Covers Album and a couple albums of re-recordings as those aren’t technically compilations. I won’t review any live albums or ones listed as greatest hits. I figured these 12 best represent that band and are what should be ranked. So let’s get started and I hope you enjoy.
