Wow, it's finally here. Any music fan has been salivating over today.
It's on these weeks that it's just a bit depressing (I stress a bit) that I get these CDs weeks early. A decade ago, I would have gotten up incredibly early after not being able to sleep and zoomed over to the local Newbury Comics to pick up five or six new albums today.
So here's the top-seven releases of the week, with my star rating. If you pick up Weekend Friday, you can read full reviews of The Decemberists, The Hold Steady, The Killers, Beck and The Dears.
The Decemberists — "The Crane Wife"
The Hold Steady — "Boys And Girls In America"
The Killers — "Sam's Town"
The Dears — "Gang of Losers"
Beck — "The Information"
Lindsey Buckingham — "Under the Skin"
Evanescence — "The Open Door"
