Sit back, grab some coffee as it will take you awhile to get through this list. We have around 75 releases for you this week so there is bound to be something for you to listen to this week. Maybe more than one thing. For me, my choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear this week and what we may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and let’s get to the releases…
Michael Bublé – Higher – (Reprise Records): What can I say, I like Buble!! That voice is incredible and I like that whole Crooner thing as well.
Hardcore Superstar – Abrakadabra – (Golden Robot Records): If you like Modern Glam Rock then you know Sweden delivers some of the best. Hardcore Superstar is a band worth checking out and I will be doing that today!!
Happy Friday everyone!! You made it to another weekend so sit back, grab a coffee and relax. There are over 45 albums on here which might the most I’ve ever had on a list. Knowing that, I am confident there will be something for you to enjoy. I have a handful of releases I am excited about and they are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you would like to hear or what I may have missed so everyone can know about the release. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and exciting weekend.
Queensryche – Operation: Mindcrime (4CD/DVD Box Set) – (Capitol Records): We getting a double treatment of goodness from Queensryche. The first is a 4CD box set celebrating my favorite concept album Operation: Mindcrime. It has the remastered album, bonus track and I believe live shows as well as a DVD with a lot of videos. I can’t wait.
Queensryche – Empire (3CD/DVD Box Set) – (Capitol Records): The second is a three disc set of their masterpiece Empire. Another of my favorite albums. This is remastered with more bonus material and a live show. Everything you would want. And a DVD of the videos and such.
We are not into August. Summer is in full swing, but releases are not. Only a handful this week and nothing I am overly excited about, however, there a couple I will listen to as I listen to everything they put out…they will be highlighted in Blue (as usual). Let me know what you have a hankering for this week or if I missed anything. Enjoy and have a great weekend!!
James – Living in Extraordinary Times – (BMG): James has been around since 1982 and have been solid all along so I will give it a listen for that reason. I am not ready to run out and buy anything, but a good stream will suffice nicely.
Phil Wickham – Living Hope – (Phil Wickham): This Christian singer has one heckuva voice and always has some standout tracks on his releases so of course this one will be played. Always happy to fly his flag when he puts something out and this will be no different. Give him a try!!
Friday is my favorite day of the week for many reasons. One – it is the last day of the work week, obviously. Two, it is the day new releases come out and I always get excited to get new music.
This week there are 4 releases that I am excited about:
Jordan Feliz – The River
I haven’t been this excited about a release in a long time. From what I have heard so far, he is nothing short of amazing. I have high hopes and don’t think I will be disappointed. I have posted this one before, but worth another listen.
Phil Wickham – Children of God
He is one of the shining spots in Christian Music. His albums are consistently good and he always has a few gems on each of his releases. Based of the song below, I am sure there will be more gems on this release as well.
Candlebox – Disappearing in Airports
I have enjoyed them for years and glad to have some new music. Like this song on the video below for “Vexatious”. Looking forward to the album.
Texas Hippie Coalition – Dark Side of Black
I don’t know what it is about these guys, maybe it is just the straight-up, in your face, rock & roll, but I can’t get enough of them.
