New CD Tuesday! 5/22/07 Edition

It’s Tuesday, soo… that must mean it’s time to rush to your favorite music store (there are still music stores, aren’t there?) to pick up the latest and greatest.

Key new releases this week are:

Maroon 5 – “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long”

Not sure how I feel about the title, but I really dig first single “Makes Me Wonder.” My roomie already bought this and swears it’s like the best CD EVER…. so perhaps its worth checking out. I dunno if it will be as big as their first CD, though. “Harder to Breathe,” “This Love,” and “She Will Be Loved” were all massive hit singles.

Ozzy Osbourne – “Black Rain”

Before he became primarily known as a somewhat bemusing television dad and star of the Ozzfest, Ozzy Osbourne actually released pretty darn good hard rock albums. It’s been a while since he put out a good one (“No More Tears”, perhaps?) but maybe the string of duds has been broken with his latest, “Black Rain.” Next year he will turn 60, so hopefully when he tours in support of “Black Rain” he will forgo his tradition of mooning the audience. Please, Ozzy. Just don’t do it.
The Bravery – “The Sun and the Moon”

Still pining for the days when New Wave ruled the airwaves? Thought the “feud” between The Killers and The Bravery was high entertainment? You are in luck. Eighties revivalists The Bravery are back with their second album, “The Sun and the Moon.” Considering that I buy anything even remotely related to 80s music, I will certainly add this to my collection. Hopefully it’s as good as their debut.
Erasure – “Light at the End of the World”
Speaking of the 80s – Erasure is still going strong. Their follow-up to their acoustic experiment “Union Street” is a return to their familiar electro-pop sound. Vince Clarke and Andy Bell can be counted on to deliver solid, and hummable pop songs, and judging from first single “I Could Fall In Love With You”, this album will be no exception.
Happy listening!!

  1. Maroon 5’s new LP is amazing!!! I wouldn’t be surprised if they were to have more singles off of this album than Letters to Jane. Such great pop songs!!!
