So this week is looking a bit better than the last. Looks to be a lot of oldsters out this time around with efforts from Richard Ashcroft, Green Day and Duran Duran taking the BIG release slots. Throw in some Pet Shop Boys and The Strokes and you've got an week that's almost OK, it just needs something to put it over the top.
Oh wait. Found it.
A SOLO ALBUM FROM TOMMY "FORMALLY OF STYX" F@#@ING SHAW!!!
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!!!*
So that's your stash. Put some in your earholes. I know a good bit of this stuff is active over on Rdio.com, a site you are going to be seeing a good bit more of on ChunkyGlasses, so check that out and until next week, avoid Kenny G at all costs.
*I'm totally reviewing the shit out of this album. For the team of course.
