Welcome to October and there is abundance to keep you busy this month. Maybe not as much as weeks past but still a broad range of releases that there is bound to be something up your alley. I have quite a few I want to hear including some Super Deluxe Editions of older albums as there are a ton of those almost every week now. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear and even what I may have missed that way everyone will know. Thanks so much for the continued support, stopping by and commenting. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
KK’s Priest – Sermons of the Sinner – (EX1 Records): K.K. Downing, formerly of Judas Priest brings his own brand of rock with KK’s Priest and I love that he is playing off his former band because why shouldn’t he capitalize on that success. And what is even better is that is Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens on vocals. I have purposely not listened to anything yet as I want to check this out all in one sitting.
Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett – Love For Sale – (Columbia / Sony / Interscope): Lady Gaga…Yes Please…Tony Bennet…Absolutely Yes Please!! In what might very well be Tony’s last recordings how could you not want to hear this. The man is a legend and throw in Gaga and the two together are pure gold!!
Another week has passed and another week impacted by Covid-19 as many releases scheduled for today originally are now later in the year. A few brave souls have stuck to their guns and are releasing their albums still to our enjoyment. As the U.S. is slowly opening back up and some stores are open again, we will see how things go. I won’t be venturing out as much at first, but I need to hit a record store soon as the shakes are starting to get bad. Withdrawal sucks!! Until then, my choice for this week is highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you like or anything I may have missed. Thanks and have a great week.
Colton Dixon – Colton Dixon E.P. – (Atlantic Recording): Christian pop artist Colton Dixon is finally back after the stellar album from 2017, Identity. That is a high mark to beat so I will be happy if he is anywhere near the greatness of that one. Sadly, this is only an E.P….give us a full album soon Mr. Dixon!!! Please!!!
And that is it for me. The rest has some promising stuff and maybe the Jason Isbell will get listened to, we will wait and see…
Asking Alexandria – Like a House On Fire – (Sumerian Records) – Digital Only – physical copy June 26th
This is the last Friday New Releases for the rest of this year. I don’t have anything for the next two weeks. If you haven’t released by this date, you will miss the Christmas rush so you might as well wait until January or be lost the hubbub. Not much out this week. The only one I am interested in is the live Linkin Park album and it is highlighted in Blue. Let me know if there is anything for you.
Linkin Park – One More Light Live – (Warner Bros): This was recorded off their most recent tour and just months prior to Chester Bennington’s death. This for me is a must have for any Linkin Park fan to get one of Chester’s final performances. I have heard the song “Crawling” from this show and it is outstanding. I am sure the rest will be as well.
