Still recovering from last week's too-good-to-be-true collection of new releases? Still listening to The Hold Steady, unable to muster the courage to take it out and pop in one of those other very good CDs? Well, you better get to it because a few more good ones hit stores today.
Here's a list of the five most significant releases of the week, again all rated on a one-to-four-star scale. Basically, I've listened to some of these so you don't have to; look for full reviews of all of these in Friday's Weekend.
Sting — "Songs from the Labyrinth"
Jimmy Buffett — "Take The Weather With You"
The Be Good Tanyas — "Hello Love"
The Lovely Sparrows — "Pulling Up Floors, Pouring On (New) Paint" EP
Abandoned Love Records
Rod Stewart — "Still The Same: Great Rock Classics of Our Time"
