Welcome to another week of new release and do we have a bunch to choose from. We have an astounding 56 releases today!! That is INSANE!!! With that many albums, there has to be a little in here for everyone. I have a handful that I want to hear today and you will as well I am sure. My choices are in Blue. Let me know which ones you want to hear this week and also tell me if I missed any which I am sure will happen. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend.
Metallica – Metallica (Deluxe Editions/Box Set) – (Blackened Recordings): The biggest selling Metallica gets the Deluxe treatment with a newly remastered album and previously unreleased, demos, rough mixes, & live tracks. Includes a 28-page booklet. This will be fun going through and will keep you busy for quite some time.
Metallica – The Metallica Blacklist – (Blackened Recordings): This Metallica set if 4 CDs of artists of all sorts of genres playing songs of the album. You get 50+ artists and a pretty cool tribute album basically.
Welcome to the last Friday of February for new releases. There isn’t a whole lot of new ones that are peaking my interest. There are a few I will listen to and as usual, they are highlighted in Blue. Let me know if there is something that tickles your fancy or if there was anything that I don’t have on my list. Thanks and have a great weekend.
Alice Cooper – The Sound of A E.P. – (Edel Germany): Alice Cooper’s latest album ‘Paranormal’ is absolutely stellar. This is really just a single release of “The Sound of A” from that album, but what makes it special is the 4 B-Sides you get as well including Live versions of “The Black Widow”, “Public Animal #9”, “Is It My Body” and “Cold Ethyl”. That makes it worth it!!
CoreLeoni – The Greatest Hits Part 1 – (Frontiers Records): Leo Leoni, guitarist from the band Gotthard, releases this on the 25th Anniversary of Gotthard to celebrate rock and bring back some songs that Gotthard has left behind. With singer Ronnie Romero taking on the vocals this could be a very interesting project. Worth at least a listen.
Welcome back to Friday New Releases. This week is a little better than last week, but not by much. There are only a few I am interested in this week and they are highlighted in Blue. I am beginning to think February for music releases is like February for movie releases, there aren’t as many and they aren’t as good. I am hoping for a couple exceptions to that rule. Let me know what floats your boat.
Pop Evil – Pop Evil – (Entertainment One): Pop Evil is one of the few modern rock bands I like. And based on what has come out so far this year, I need something good and heavy. They usually don’t disappoint. I will admit it is a little generic, but it is consistent and you know what you are going to get.
David Cook – Chromance E.P. – (Analog Heart Music): Former American Idol winner is finally back, but only with an EP. I will take what I can get. David is a little rock, but mostly pop and I don’t know if he has ever fully found where he wants to be with his sound. Hopefully this finds him in a good place.
