CHRIS CORNELL
CHRIS CORNELL
$11.99(sale priced)
It will be released on Nov. 16 in a number of of formats, with a total of 11 previously unreleased songs across the offerings. They all include When Bad Does Good, which was released as a taster track. Since Chris sudden passing I have put all my efforts and energy into sharing his music and legacy with his fans from all over the world, his widow Vicky said in a statement. I felt we needed to create a special collection to represent all of him the friend, husband and father, the risk taker and innovator, the poet and artist. His soaring vocals found their way into the hearts and souls of so many. His voice was his vision and his words were his peace. This album is for his fans. The album was produced by Brendan OBrien, while Pearl Jams Jeff Ament created the artwork. It was assembled with help from a range of Cornells friends and colleagues, and included memorials written by Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, Tom Morello and Mike McCready.
MARK KNOPFLER
DOWN THE ROAD WHEREVER
$12.99(sale priced)
Knopfler produced the record along with former Dire Straits keyboardist Guy Fletcher, who has been one of his primary collaborators since the group disbanded in 1995. They cut it at Londons British Grove Studios with Jim Cox and Fletcher on keyboards, Nigel Hitchcock on saxophone, Tom Walsh on trumpet, John McCusker on fiddle, Mike McGoldrick on whistle and flute, Glenn Worf on bass, Ian Ianto Thomas on drums and Danny Cummings on percussion. Hes worked with most of these musicians in the past and he gave them the freedom to express themselves on the new songs however they saw fit. I think the business of making a record, from having written a song and then bringing it to musicians, it can be quite a bendy route, Knopfler said in a statement. Its not just motorways all the wayand you can end up in the occasional cul-de-sac, then you have to do a 16-point turn to try to get your truck back out on the main road as unobtrusively as you can. Thats part of the fun of it.
MUMFORD & SONS
DELTA
$10.99(sale priced)
Its never easy for an artist to extend their early successes. Becoming a sudden sensation has its advantages, of course, leapfrogging as you do over the competition and gain the attention of the masses. Yet, it also manifests often undue expectations and scrutiny over every last step you make in the future, setting a high bar that can be difficult to ascend later on.Its an intimidating tightrope walk, which is the main reason why any artist that garners that sort of acclaim needs to have resources in reserve to stay in the good graces of the music-streaming/ticket-buying public well into the future.Mumford & Sons is a pretty obvious example. They burst into the world about a decade ago, the supposed advancing army for a new generation of folk/Americana artists. The U.K. group has crossed the Rubicon and want to do everything in their powers to stay there. How do I presume when theres so much at state, they coo harmoniously on 42, the opening track of their new opus Delta. Its a song that sounds like a prayer to the heavens, sung with anthemic resolve, some hope and perhaps even a wee bit of trepidation. I need some guiding light, they continue before kicking in with a billowing refrain.
SMASHING PUMPKINS
SHINY AND OH SO BRIGHT 1 / NO PAST. NO FUTURE. NO
$11.99(sale priced)
Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. arrives with the distinction as the first Smashing Pumpkins album since 2000 to reunite original band members Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin. Missing is original bass player D'arcy Wretzky. Though in the run-up to this album and the recent Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour, there appeared some hope that she too might have been welcome to rejoin the band.Despite the collaborative, even convivial, atmosphere created by getting the band back together, the first impression the album makes is a distinctly solitary one. Opening song 'Knights of Malta' begins with Corgan wordlessly intoning the tune of a soul song, which is soon revealed as a way of introducing the lyrics of the chorus. 'Knights of Malta' plays like Corgan riffing over top of Isaac Hayes' version of 'Walk on By' and building his own modern composition from it. As unexpected as that might sound, the song is emblematic of a couple of the bandleader's tendencies in recent years. One of these is to have his lead vocals high and upfront within the mix, a sonic detail met with no small amount of commentary/criticism in the previous era of Smashing Pumpkins albums from Zeitgeist (2007) to Monuments to an Elegy (2014). Additionally, 'Knights of Malta' is an example of the kind of songwriting Corgan discussed in a 2014 interview with NME.
