New Releases on CD for Friday November 17th (11/17)

The Following are some of the releases on CD that we are most excited for, but is by no means a comprehensive list, there there just too many awesome releases to cover all of them!

Black Sabbath – End (CD/DVD)

$18.99

addcart

Almost five decades ago, the toll of a bell and rolling thunder marked the conception of an ear splittingly monolithic riff. In that moment, Black Sabbath and the sound of Heavy Metal were forged. The band embarked on what Ozzy describes as the most incredible adventure you could think of, a journey that would go on to define a genre.

The End is a celebration of Black Sabbath’s final hometown concert at Birmingham’s Genting Arena on February 4th, 2017. This unforgettable farewell show from one of the biggest bands in the world will be released by Eagle Vision on November 17th, 2017.

With a hit packed set list including Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs, and many more, the high production values, visual effects, and pyrotechnics wowed fans, as the band delivered the most emotionally charged show in their history.

The End captures a once-in-a-career performance, an essential snapshot of musical history, and a fitting farewell to true innovators and original heavy metal icons, Black Sabbath.

Featuring Ozzy Osbourne (vocals); Tony Iommi (guitar) and Geezer Butler (bass), with Tommy Clufetos (drums) and Adam Wakeman (keyboards / guitar).

Electric Light Orchestra – Wembley or Bust

$18.99

addcart

Wembley or Bust is a special release commemorating the June 24th, 2017 performance by Jeff Lynne’s ELO at the famed Wembley Stadium in London, England. The Wembley or Bust album is available digitally, or physically as a 2 disc audio CD and a 3 LP vinyl package. There are also two Deluxe packages each including the 2 disc CD set, and the concert film on Standard DVD or BLU-RAY DVD. The music is produced by Jeff Lynne, and the concert film is directed by Paul Dugdale.

In Wembley or Bust, we see Jeff and his remarkable musical ensemble filling Wembley Stadium with one of the greatest rock & roll spectacles of all time, complete with bells, whistles and spaceships in front of a 60,000 capacity crowd. As Jeff says himself ‘It’s the best time I ever had in music… It is beyond anything I could have imagined’. More popular than ever, Jeff Lynne’s ELO have always been known for their epic live shows and with a distinct style that seamlessly and innovatively blends rock, pop and classical music.

The Wembley or Bust audio and film includes performances of many of the most beloved songs of our lifetime, from vintage ELO classics like “Mr. Blue Sky,” “Livin’ Thing” and “Evil Woman” to “Do Ya” from his days with The Move, “Handle With Care” which he recorded with the Traveling Wilburys, right through “When I Was A Boy” from his latest ELO masterpiece, Alone In The Universe.

Jeff Lynne is widely regarded as one of the greatest record producers in music history. In addition to his storied career in ELO, Lynne was a co-founder and member of The Travelling Wilburys together with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Tom Petty as well as a producer and collaborator with some of the biggest names in music including The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, and most recently, Bryan Adams.

Electric Wizard – Wizard Bloody Wizard

$12.99

addcart

Wizard Bloody Wizard is the latest/9th studio album from Electric Wizard; produced by guitarist/vocalist Jus Oborn & guitarist Liz Buckingham & mixed by Oborn this 6-track all-analog affair is the follow up to 2014’s Time To Die. Conceived to form a single piece of vinyl these half-dozen tracks see The Wizard pursuing a more streamlined path, maintaining the essential, revered elements of their sound while simultaneously taking a broader view, operating in a world beyond fashion, niche or cult.

Charlotte Gainsbourg – Rest

$12.99

addcart

Songs like these affirm life, even in the face of death. They transform personal suffering into public spectacle. Few things are more terrifying than exposing our bruises to others, knowing that they could misunderstand, or prey on our vulnerability. On Rest, Gainsbourg doesn’t just reveal her pain, but monumentalizes it, lays out a red carpet, and invites people to watch. Her refusal to be sequestered by grief is, quite literally, a death-defying feat.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – Soul Of A Woman

$13.99

addcart

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ final studio album, Soul of a Woman is a lush, orchestral masterpiece. A true testament to the life and career of Daptone’s fearless leader and one of the world’s greatest performers. In the year prior to her death from pancreatic cancer in 2016, Sharon Jones toured and performed tirelessly, and was also the subject of Miss Sharon Jones!, an acclaimed documentary by Oscar-Winning director Barbara Kopple. Yet somehow, the beloved and heroic soul singer found time to complete a studio album. Soul of a Woman features eleven songs which reveal that the emotion, dynamics, and drama of Jones’ voice remained at full power until her final days.

The songs on Soul Of A Woman exemplify two distinct sides of the band s sound. Side One showcases the grittier, bluesier material like Matter Of Time and Sail On giving Sharon the room to flex her vocal prowess, creating a liveness that few studio albums posses. Side Two takes on a more sophisticated orchestral mood. Tracks like When I Saw Your Face and These Tears (No Longer For You), capture a soft vulnerability in Sharon’s vocals that draws you deep inside, and yet they remain nuanced with the signature toughness that never allow you to forget she’s steering the ship. The finished product is an album that captures a band and a singer at their peak.

Talib Kweli – Radio Silence

$13.99

addcart

ver 20 years after delivering 1998’s Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are Black Star album, Talib Kweli has become synonymous with political activism and his polarizing Twitter account almost as much as the words “classic Hip Hop.” Following the April release of his collaborative EP with Styles P, The Seven, Kweli boomerangs with Radio Silence,his first solo album since 2015’s Fuck The Money.

Clocking in at 11-tracks, Radio Silence begins loud and clear with “The Magic Hour,” which ushers in a nearly 45-minute, jazz-infused journey through the mind of an educated and seasoned MC. 

As Kweli explained to HipHopDX in June, his lightning fast ability to compose tweets has sharpened his pen game, which shows on the new album.

For example, “She’s My Hero” is like a lyrical punch to the gut. The song revolves around the case of Bresha Meadows, a girl who, at 14, gunned down her father after years of alleged physical abuse.

Morrissey – Low In High School

On Sale: $11.99

addcart

“Society’s hell/ you need me, just like I need you,” sings Morrissey on My Love, I’d Do Anything for You. This seems a neat enough summary of his oeuvre: at once political and personal, isolationist and needy, revelling in contradiction.

Low in High School, his 11th solo album, is as dazzling and infuriating as anything in his canon, full of the stuff that has made the 58-year-old former Smiths frontman one of the most provocative and adored stars of our time.

Here are more songs of anger and compassion ambiguously mixed up with narcissism and misanthropy, where you are never quite sure whether the singer feels more moved by the state of the world or the state of his own love life.

Nine Inch Nails – Not The Actual Events

$8.99

addcart

“Yes … everyone seems to be asleep,” Trent Reznor whispers at the opening of the ostentatiously-titled “Dear World,” the second song on the new Nine Inch Nails EP, his voice digitally teased like the anodyne textbot in Radiohead’s “Fitter Happier.” The line returns at the end of the song as a kind of provocation: Even the most loyal Nine Inch Nails apologist might consider whether such gestures might not have been better left in the ‘90s, where they felt more essential to the times. Today’s listeners have Echo Dots in their homes to bleat similarly toneless directives. Shouldn’t Reznor be able to plump deeper than this Palahniukian mumbo-jumbo fifty-one years into his life, nearly thirty years into his career, on the other side of a visionary, definitively mature stint soundtracking films?

But as the song wears on, something approaching self-awareness begins to reveal itself through a new sense of high-dramatic extroversion. This is not the filter-less, flagellating Reznor of old, purging himself on record as on 1994’s The Downward Spiral and 1999’s The Fragile. Here, he’s a veteran Hamlet, donning the cape and snatching up the skull once again, but by now, he knows the cues well. The outlook here feels more measured and removed. That’s not to say that NIN is shamelessly retreading old territory on Not the Actual Events—just that they have a focused, well-reasoned idea of what the project is designed to do.

Bob Seger – I Knew you When

On Sale: $9.99

addcart

With a little more than a month left to go before Bob Seger’s new I Knew You When LP is scheduled to arrive in stores, the veteran rocker has revealed some of the details surrounding the set — including a complete track listing for the regular and deluxe editions.

Slated for a Nov. 17 release and available to pre-order now, I Knew You When marks Seger’s 18th studio release — and arrives on the 49th year of his long-standing association with Capitol Records, making him the longest-tenured solo artist in the label’s history. According to the press release announcing the milestone, Seger’s discography now includes 13 platinum and seven multi-platinum sales awards, as well as a diamond certification for selling 10 million copies of his Greatest Hits LP. I Knew You When follows the 2014 release of Seger’s most recent collection of new material, the No. 3 hit Ride Out.

As previously reported, I Knew You When collects a blend of covers and originals, as well as material that was earlier part of the trove of recordings Seger assembled for Ride Out. The sessions clearly found him in a reflective state of mind with respect to the spate of classic rockers we’ve lost over the last several years; the record’s first single, “Busload of Faith,” is a Lou Reed cover, and a tribute to Seger’s longtime friend Glenn Frey closes out the deluxe edition of the LP — which is dedicated to the Eagles co-founder’s memory. Listen to “Busload of Faith” above, and look over the complete track listing below.

Review From Ultimate Classic Rock

Sia – Everyday Is Christmas

On Sale: $15.99

addcart

Sia’s first ever Christmas album. The collection of original holiday songs was written by Sia and Greg Kurstin. The album’s lead single, “Santa’s Coming For Us,” has several counterparts on the album including other festive songs like “Candy Cane Lane,” “Ho Ho Ho,” and “Puppies Are Forever” which are anchored by ballads “Underneath The Christmas Lights,” “Snowman,” and “Snowflake.”

Mavis Staples – If All i Was Was Black

$12.99

addcart

nlike many protest songs birthed by the political situation in the US, the title track of Mavis Staples’s 16th solo album is bereft of rage. Instead – as with all of the songs on If All I Was Was Black – it replaces mockery and fury with a warm, calm clarity that is soothing and stirring. Staples explains how it feels to be judged by the colour of your skin (and, on other tracks, the effects of police brutality and internalised oppression) with a patience and simplicity that is heartrending. That the songs on the record, which largely deals with race and oppression, were written by a white man could have undercut the emotional heft. (That man being Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, a longtime collaborator of Staples, who soundtracks his words with a weighty marriage of gospel and blues rock.) But Staples has had decades of practice delivering truths as part of the Staple Singers – who were celebrated for their gospel “message songs” – and her performance here is so utterly convincing it feels like a moot point.
