Tuesday is new release day! What's on tap for March 22, 2011:
Duran Duran: All You Need Is Now
It's fair to say I like Duran Duran more now than I did in the Eighties. That's no reason for them to hook up with Mark Ronson and put out a new album.
Pet Shop Boys: The Most Incredible Thing
I love PSB. But this has something to do with a ballet they wrote. So, I guess, technically, it is still dance music.
Soundgarden: Live on I-5
Remember when Seattle was relevant?
Yellowcard: When You're Through Thinking, Say Yes
Yellowcard have been around forever, but I have no idea who they are or what they sound like. Maybe I should visit Hot Topic and find out.
Green Day: Awesome as F**k
Somewhere about 2/3rds the way through their career, Green Day were unexpectedly hailed as geniuses. Now they're giving us a live album.
Chris Brown: F.A.M.E.
This guy is an A.S.S.H.O.L.E. If everyone ignores him, he'll go away.
The Strokes: Angles
At least it's not a concept album titled "Angels" about our heavenly watchdogs. True fact: Over 50% of Americans believe in angels!
William Fitzsimmons: Gold in the Shadow
It's folk rock à la James Taylor but it's on Nettwerk? What's going on at Nettwerk, anyone know?
Panic at the Disco: Vices & Virtues
At least they've removed the stupid exclamation point from their name.
Ke$ha: I Am the Dance Commander & I Command You to Dance: The Remix Album
Who are we to argue with someone who makes out with unicorns? She commands it, we do it.
