Friday New Releases – November 2nd

Can you believe it is November already??  I find the years are flying by now and before this one is over, I will hit a major life milestone and I don’t know if I am ready for it.  But before that happens, we have new music to get through.  There is a lot here, but there isn’t at the same time.  Hopefully you will find something. Me, there is nothing I am really running out to get.  I will listen to some, but buying is a maybe to a No for most of this.  The things I might listen to sooner than later are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what you are interested in hearing or what I might have missed this week.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

  • 51B1qRfpwJL._AC_US436_QL65_  The Afters – The Beginning & Everything After – (Fair Trade Services):  The Afters are a Christian pop/rock band.  I enjoy them a lot and this is just a greatest hits album so I thought I would feature it for those that don’t know anything about them, this would be a good place to start.  Here is the one new track on the album.

  • 81r3FVfNG3L._SX522_  Metallica – And Justice for All (Remastered) – (Blackened Recordings):  Do I really need to add anything to this release. If you have $180 laying around you can the complete deluxe box set of 6LPs, 11CDs and 4 DVDs as who doesn’t need the same songs repeated over and over and over in different mixes, live versions, etc…

Friday New Releases – July 21st

Happy Friday.  I am in a very busy season at work and I need some new music to listen to so I can make it through this time.  Sadly, not a whole lot I am interested in this week.  I hope there is something for you.  Mine are highlighted in Blue

  • 170x170bb-68  Mr. Big – Defying Gravity – (Frontiers Records Srl):  Can’t wait to play this one.  Mr. Big has been back in a “big” way since 2010.  Now they do take 3-4 years between records, but it is better than the 9 years prior to that.  Either way, it is just great to get new music from this very talented band of musicians.  When ever you can have Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheenan, Pat Torpey and Eric Martin together, you have to be excited.  The opening bass line of this song is unbelievable and has definitely got me excited about this one.

  •  61b+59Pq0CL._AC_US218_  Europe – The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show: Live at the Roundhouse – (Hell & Back Recordings):  Say it isn’t so…30 years…REALLY!!  Damn!  I am getting old.  If you don’t know, Europe has been doing their thing for all this time and I am happy to see a live album to celebrate The Final Countdown.  This will definitely get a few spins.  I didn’t see a video for this so might as well show “The Final Countdown”.
