With the glow of Halloween’s sugary snacks and slutty costumes fading, you may be feeling a degree of post-celebratory ennui. Fret not! We’ve cooked up a fresh batch of new releases with which to nurse your post-Halloween hangover.
Aerosmith – Music From Another Dimension!
Eleven years after they put out their last original studio album, Just Push Play, American rock band Aerosmith is finally releasing new material via Music From Another Dimension! Following the band’s near-breakup and vocalist Steven Tyler’s stint as a judge on American Idol, the notion of this album even coming to fruition was questionable, but here it is!
Vitalic – Rave Age
French producer Pascal Arbez, better known as Vitalic, has been throwing down some uniquely infectious beats in a musical landscape that has, in my opinion, largely become complacent. Here’s what you can expect from his newest effort, Rave Age: non-prosaic, sweat-inducing tracks rife with addictive electro hooks. Oh, and speaking from experience, his live show makes for an unconventional-but-awesome first date.
Kylie Minogue – The Abbey Road Sessions
This compilation from Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue is several leaps away from the dancefloor singles that have made her a household name. The album, appropriately recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, features a full orchestra playing reworked and, at times, melancholy versions of her biggest singles.
All That Remains – A War You Cannot Win
If the first single from A War You Cannot Win is any indication, American metal rockers All That Remains have yet another solid release on their hands. I admittedly don’t know much about metal, but what I’ve heard of this seems to be decent enough. Not sure how the metal aficionados will feel about it though (let me know in the comments!).
And here’s the best of the rest!
Ne-Yo – R.E.D.
Wildly popular pop/R&B powerhouse Ne-Yo releases his fifth album in the United States today. Already released in Japan, Ne-Yo’s newest effort combines elements of soulful R&B, hip hop, and dance.
Andy Stott – Luxury Problems
Isis – Temporal
Prince Rama – Top Ten Hits of the End of the World
Saigon – The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses
