Happy Friday! We have another batch of over 40 releases for you this week, but will any of them be talked about more than Taylor Swift’s new one? Probably not. However, that doesn’t mean she has the only important release because there is another one I will listen to probably more than hers. Yes, I will listen to hers as my girls are fans and I won’t be able to escape it. Let me know what you want to hear this week and what we may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!\
Taylor Swift – Midnights – (Taylor Swift): She’s BACK!!! Taylor is knocking out albums faster than Aaron Judge was hitting homeruns. This one is supposed to be about dreams or nightmares she has had…or something like that. All I know are my kids are excited. And Taylor will sell more albums than anyone and she hasn’t even released one single for this album yet…as a result, no video to show. If I get up in this morning and there is one, I will update.
Stryper – The Final Battle – (Frontiers Records): Micheal Sweet and company are back again. Talk about putting out a lot of albums. Michael Sweet is a freaking machine. And I think the quality has been there so I am on board for another one. Bring it Mr. Sweet!!
Welcome to October and the first Friday of new releases for the month. And what a month this will be. I already have something on order for every Friday of the month so it will be my favorite day of the week. Who are we kidding, it already is my favorite day. Now even more so. There are only 2 releases I really care about this week and they are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what has your interest peaked this week or if I missed anything. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
The Darkness – Easter is Cancelled – (Canary Dwarf LTD): The Darkness returns with their sixth studio album and if you love that whole retro glam rock feel, then this will be right up your alley. No one does Glam today like these guys do. From the ear-piercing falsettos to the screeching guitars, it is all a blast and this should be no different. Check them out.
Whitesnake – Slip of the Tongue (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) – (Rhino Records): Whitesnake brings us yet another box set celebrating one of their big albums. This is the 3rd and the 30th Anniversary Edition of ‘Slip of the Tongue’. The other two were ‘Slide it In’ and ‘1987’ and the were fantastic. Full of live songs, rare songs and remixes and remasters and everything you could want and this one is no different. This is on order but it will NOT be home when I get there as for some reason Amazon isn’t giving me release day delivery. I’m a little pissed, but I guess I will get over it. Check out David’s unboxing video below…
Welcome to February’s First Friday of new releases. There is a little Metal, Rock, Pop, Country and even Frank Zappa (he is his own category). Hopefully something will float your boat. There is only one I am really interested in and I might check out some others, but too early to say. My choice is highlighted in Blue as always.
Justin Timberlake – Man of the Woods – (RCA Records): Is it no surprise that Justin is back with a new album as he is performing as the headline act for the Super Bowl Halftime Show on Sunday. The first single is a little different and took some getting used to, but I think I am digging it a little now. I am interested to see what he has to offer. I will admit I am a fan of his music so this one is a no brainer for me.
Happy Friday, it couldn’t get here quick enough. There are a handful of releases this week. Nothing has me overly excited, but there are a few I will give a listen. Those will be highlighted in Blue.
Sting – 57th & 9th – (A&M): I haven’t listened to much of his stuff lately, but figured with the limited releases this week I would give it a try. No big expectations, so hopefully won’t be disappointed.
Rik Emmett & RESolution 9 – RES9 – (Provogue): The former Triumph singer is back. I was so pumped when I heard he was putting out new material. He even teams up with former bandmates…Cool!! However, early comments don’t sound promising. Doesn’t matter…he has earned enough cred for me to give it a spin.
