There's really only one thing you need to know about this weeks releases. Sure you've got the return of Cornershop (really?) and for the jazz/guitar heads you've got a new release from Al Di Meola. Then you've got Steve Martin, J. Mascis, the New York Dolls, Rise Against...wait a minute! It seems there might be a lot of competition for your earholes this week...that is if you ignore the fact that Mastodon is putting out a live album. Those guys scare me as much as they rock me, so guess what? THEY WIN!
