What’s up with releasing all these albums on the same day? I know they’re trying to jump start the holiday season and this is a good time to release albums, but seriously all on the same day?

Shakira She Wolf    I liked the song She Wolf whether other people liked it or not I can’t say.

Lady Gaga   Fame Monster    Listen to the dark side of fame.  Some of the songs are scary so watch out, but they’re all addictive.

Beyonce     Iam…Yours  Live album   Beyonce’s first live album and she’s got pipes that are shown off live.

Adam Lambert  For Your Entertainment   Glam

Rihanna     Rated R        Was this written for Chris Brown? Some of it is kind of it is frightening and sounds really rough.

Susan Boyle   I Dreamed a Dream   She can sing for real.

Kenny G     Holiday Album     Yes he’s releasing an album

And it looks like Britney Spears was a little off with release of her singles collection.

Are you planning to buy one of the many albums released on November 23rd?  In person or on itunes? Or are you just into singles?  Personally I’m getting the fame monster.  I haven’t figured out if I’m getting the version with the fame attached or not.  I’m buying the actual physical CD  because I want the cover.

Yacht I bet you never heard of them.

I heard about the group yacht by looking through an issue of Rolling Stones, the one explaining why the Beatles broke up.  There were a lot of other bands in there that I didn’t look up, but I thought Yacht looked interesting.  They were number 8 on college radio top 10 albums.  College radio usually has a lot of off beat stuff which is something that Yacht is, off beat.  It was the description that made me look them up.  “This dance rock crew release its new album-packed with rubbery synths and Nintendo bloops” 

My favorite of their songs are Psychic City (Voodoo City) and Summer Song.  Both of the music videos feature actors that look somewhat similar to the actual band members.  Psychic city shows yin and yang with the female in black representing voodoo and the male in white representing Catholism who both battle and find love .  Summer song pokes fun at making music videos without a budget.  I crack up everytime I see it.

What do you think about this band?  Good or too weird?
