We are to the final studio album released in our Billy Idol Series which means we are really close to the end of the series which makes me a little sad as I have enjoyed doing this series. The next album up for review is a remix album of Billy’s hits called ‘Revitalized’ which was released in September 2018 and is 31 years after the release of his first remix album called ‘Vital Idol’.
Billy’s songs are brought into the 21st century with remixes coming from some of the best EDM artist of 2018 including Paul Oakenfold, Moby, The Crystal Method, CRAY and many more. The original album has 11 tracks where the digital version gives you an additional 4 tracks for 15 songs total.

Welcome to March and Friday New Releases. There is not a ton of new stuff, but hopefully there is something for you. I have a few I will try out, but not super excited about anything. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Leave a comment and let me know if there is anything that you would like or something I missed (which I am sure I missed a lot).
- Andrew W.K. – You’re Not Alone – (Bee & El/Sony): Here is someone we haven’t heard in a long, long while. I am looking forward to explore what he has in store. It is can usually be fun, strange, or who knows what, however, it is usually interesting.
- Michael Schenker Fest – Resurrection – (Nuclear Blast): This should be an very interesting release as well. The guest list is quite impressive and any Schenker fan will love. Guest appearances by Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, Wayne Findlay and Michael Voss-Schön along with contributions from three original MSG singers – Gary Barden, Graham Bonnet and Robin McAuley. Plus Doogie White is on it, who plays with Michael in Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock.
