Happy Friday everyone! We have another great list of new album releases for you. The floodgates are open and albums are coming hot and heavy each week and this week there should be something for you. I have a few I want to hear, but aren’t going crazy to hear them. I have marked those in Blue as usual. What albums do you want to hear this week. Also, let me know what my list does not include because I am just one man and can’t find everything coming out. Thanks so much for stopping by this week and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Olivia Rodrigo – Sour – (Geffen Records): This is not one I want to hear which is why it isn’t in Blue. However, this is one my kids are going nuts over. With the smash hit “Drivers License” this young lady is blowing up the radio. I am sure I will hear this one, but it will be under duress.
P!nk – All I Know So Far (Live) – (RCA): P!nk has a live album and that is cool. She’s a major talent and I have to say I enjoy her pop sensibilities. Fun and lots of attitude. Since we still aren’t going to shows, this is the next best thing. The song below is the one studio track from the album.
Welcome to Friday the 13th and the last good day of releases for at least 3 to 4 weeks. Yes, Friday New Releases will be absent from this site until a couple weeks into the new year in January when there is finally enough to talk about. However, this week isn’t totally worthless. There a couple releases I am interested in, but not much else. My choices will be highlighted in Blue, let me know if you find anything you like of if I missed anything. Thanks and until next time, have a great weekend!
Harry Styles – Fine Line – (Erksine Records/Columbia/Sony): Harry is back with his second studio album and I have to say, I am actually looking forward to this. I was pleasantly surprised at how great his debut was and it was so much better than anything One Direction put out. My oldest daughter is even more so excited as she keeps the vinyl of his debut up in her room rather than down in my wall of vinyl. I am hoping for another release of a variety of styles and hope he pushes himself even more on this one.
Stone Sour – Hello, You Bastards: Live in Reno – (Cooking Vinyl Ltd): I like live albums lately, so I might give this one a try. Corey Taylor and the boys are releasing their first live album and I am sure it will rock your face off. I mean, it ain’t no Slipknot, which is actually why I like them more, but Corey only knows how to bring it hard and heavy. Ok, no video so far so here is a classic.
Wow!! The new releases are coming in droves. Another extensive list of releases this week just like last. There has to be something for everyone as the artist here cover the gamut of genres. There are a handful I am interested in streaming at least, not sure about buying…yet. I will test the waters first. Those are highlighted in Blue. What do you see that you like? Let me know and let me know what releases are missing from the list. I hope you find something. Have a great weekend!!
Stephen Pearcy – View to a Thrill – (Frontiers Records): The lead singer of Ratt (or some version of it) is back with another solo effort. I am becoming very skeptical of this release with all the antics going on with him from the latest Ratt tour…not a pretty picture. The tracks I have heard so far are so, so…but after his last one was pretty decent, I will give this one a try. We will see.
Red Dragon Cartel – Patina – (Frontiers Record): Jake E. Lee isback with Red Dragon Cartel’s 2nd album. I get the impression this is a real band now and so the songs should be solid and consistent. I am digging what I have heard and have higher expectations for this one over the last. I can’t wait to crank this one up.
