So i have no problem letting you know that there is an apparent metric shit-ton of records being released this week. BIG RECORDS. You've got the new Bright Eyes, a new Drive By Truckers album, new efforts from Mogwai (coming out strong with one of the best record titles ever), PJ Harvey, Telekinesis and OH MY GOD ARE YOU KIDDING ME STRYPER!!!? You can't be serious. STRYPER????! Just look at that album cover!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh...wait...you ARE serious....because not only is there a Stryper album but there's a new MR. BIG ALBUM!!
We truly live in the Golden Age folks. Truly.
I have no idea when I'm going to get to reviewing any of this (and you better believe I'm reviewing Stryper) but I promise I'll at least hit the big ones. And speaking of big ones...
Look for the review about an hour after I hear it...if that.
