Friday New Releases – March 20th

Happy Friday and hope everyone is hanging in there with all the craziness in the world.  Despite the world’s events, there are some pretty decent releases.  I think there is something here you will find. I have a few I am interested in, but for those that love pop you’ve got The Weeknd, Conan Gray (my kids are thrilled) and Kelsea Ballerini.  But those aren’t for me even though I am sure that I will hear Conan without having a choice.  My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you see that you like or what I might have missed.  As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

  • 91aBQXDZjQL._AC_UL115_  Def Leppard – The Early Years – (Virgin EMI / Mercury Records):  If you follow the site, you know I have no choice in buying this.  Why?  Because they are my favorite.  It is already bought and will be delivered this fine day.  It is a remaster of their first two albums, B-Sides & rarities, but the gem of this are the live shows from the early 80’s.  Pete Willis anyone!!!  Steve Clark!!!  Enough said!!  These are going to be AWESOME!!!  I guess that wasn’t enough said.

  • 91VspBjh2nL._SX522_  Adam Lambert – Velvet – (More is More LLC / Empire):  Adam’s vocals keep getting stronger.  With Queen, he is amazing.  His solo stuff a little hit and miss, but with that voice, I am willing to give it a listen.  It is very different from Queen so don’t expect anything like that except maybe the theatrics and drama.

Friday New Releases – November 3rd

Can you believe we are in November already.  Christmas is just around the corner and with all the new releases today, what might be on your Christmas list?  I don’t really have anything from these releases that I am dying to have, but there are a couple I will give a listen to.  Not much in the rock world for me, it is all Pop.  The ones I am interested in at least listening to are highlighted in Blue as always.

If you want to buy any of the albums, I have tried to make it easy for you. Click on the link after each album and it will take you to iTunes and you can download the release with just a few clicks.

  • 51m6YjZEtOL._AC_US400_FMwebp_QL65_  Maroon 5 – Red Pill Blues – (222 Records/Interscope):  Maroon 5 brings us another record, but with the over saturation of Adam Levine on TV with the Voice and the lack of greatness from the singles so far I am not overly excited.  However, I have been a huge fan since the beginning so it will get listened to.  I hope there are songs that only feature the band.  I am sick and DAMN!!! Tired of the releases for this album so far that feature another artist.  Why do songs today on Pop Radio have to be with someone else.  I don’t get and this is a topic for another time.  I do like “Cold” though.

  • 51-yr3+L5-L._AC_US436_QL65_  Sam Smith – The Thrill of It All – (Capitol Records):  Finally the voice of Sam Smith is back with some new music.  I know my oldest loves him and I have to admit he has a nice voice.  I will give it a spin and see what he has to offer.  The first two promotional songs have been good.
