The week before Thanksgiving and the last big week of new releases. There will be more releases over the next three weeks, but not as big as this one (in numbers, not necessarily quality). There are a handful I will give a spin and they will be highlighted in Blue as usual. Let me know what interests you or what I might have missed. Now next Friday there are new releases, but it is also Record Store Day Black Friday, so hopefully some I can grab…until then.
- Coldplay – Everyday Life – (Parlophone Records / Warner Music): I will admit, I hold hopes out that they will release something as good as ‘Parachute’ again. So, this will get a spin to see what they bring to the table this time. My hopes aren’t too high.
- Beck – Hyperspace – (Fonograf Records / Capitol): Okay, it’s Beck…why would he not get a spin? His quirkiness is always welcome even if not always appreciated.

Happy Friday! Take a look at the list of new releases and see what floats your boat. There are a few I am really excited and interested to hear, but one of those I don’t have much hope that it will be good (Bon Jovi). The ones I will be attacking first are highlighted in Blue.
- Bon Jovi – This House Is Not For Sale – (Island Records): Bon Jovi’s track record over their last 3-4 albums has been piss poor. A couple songs I have heard so far suck!!!, but some were decent. Still doesn’t give me much hope that this will be any good. I will still listen off the extreme hope that one day they will find glory again.
- Robbie Williams – The Heavy Entertainment Show – (Robert Williams/Farrell Music): I am a huge Robbie Williams fan. I have never understood how he didn’t have much success stateside, but that is okay as I like him anyway. Eagerly anticipating this release. I am sure it will be great. Read my post on the Top 20 Robbie Williams songs. I wonder if any of these songs will force me to update that list???

When I gave this a listen the first time, this playlist put me in a great mood. I hope the new playlist coming up on Wednesday is as good as this one. Go to Apple Music and give it a listen at this link.
Robbie Williams is one of the most talented singer/songwriters out there and is so extremely underrated in the states. He had a few minor hits early on in the states, but for some reason, never caught on. The rest of the world seems to adore this man as he has sold over 75 million records over his career.
Robbie was a member of the British boy band Take That in the early 90’s before branching out on a solo career and releasing his first solo album in 1997. It is that solo career where I became a fan and have been since. He is one of the few artist that will release an album and I will buy it without hearing anything on it beforehand. I don’t think I have been disappointed yet.
I am going to give you my Top 20 favorite songs by Robbie Williams. This was actually really hard to narrow it down to 20. I eventually narrowed it down to 24 songs and then I had to re-listen to everything again to get it down to the Top 20. I hope you give him a listen and become a fan, if you are not already.
