BLACK SABBATH
END (2cd set)
$14.99(sale priced)
Black Sabbaths tumultuous, triumphant 50-year journey finally reached its end earlier this year with a bittersweet hometown show at the old Birmingham NEC. The End Of The End, one part concert film, one part documentary, captures that living wake. The big-budget live footage captures the tangible levels of emotion swirling around the band and the audience (anyone who thinks they never need to hear War Pigs again should clock the titanic version here). Theres gold in the off-stage footage: Ozzy blasting a harmonica on a rehearsal room blast through The Wizard, or the band musing on their friendship with estranged drummer Bill Ward.Well, chaps, thanks for coming, Ozzy tells Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler at the death of it all. Now fuck off. If they really are dead and gone, this makes a fine headstone.Black Sabbaths tumultuous, triumphant 50-year journey finally reached its end earlier this year with a bittersweet hometown show at the old Birmingham NEC.

BOB SEGER
I KNEW YOU WHEN
$9.99(sale priced)
I Knew You When marks Seger's 18th studio release and arrives on the 49th year of his long-standing association with Capitol Records, making him the longest-tenured solo artist in the label's history. According to the press release announcing the milestone, Seger's discography now includes 13 platinum and seven multi-platinum sales awards, as well as a diamond certification for selling 10 million copies of his Greatest Hits LP. I Knew You When follows the 2014 release of Seger's most recent collection of new material, the No. 3 hit Ride Out.As previously reported, I Knew You When collects a blend of covers and originals, as well as material that was earlier part of the trove of recordings Seger assembled for Ride Out. The sessions clearly found him in a reflective state of mind with respect to the spate of classic rockers we've lost over the last several years; the record's first single, 'Busload of Faith,' is a Lou Reed cover, and a tribute to Seger's longtime friend Glenn Frey closes out the deluxe edition of the LP which is dedicated to the Eagles co-founder's memory.
NINE INCH NAILS
NOT THE ACTUAL EVENTS
$7.99(sale priced)
Reznor and now-diehard collaborator Atticus Ross (currently the bands only other member) are working as they do when writing for film. Theyre not exorcising personal trauma open-endedly, as Reznor did on the bands best-known worktheyre painting more universal impressions in broad, dissipated strokes. On any self-respecting NIN release, Reznor always finds some reason to justify razing modern civilization, but on Not the Actual Eventsone of the first definitively post-Trump projects from a major musical artisthis argument feels more convincing than ever. It is coming, and you didnt even notice, Reznor murmurs hoarsely, mentioning a trajectory in decline, chastising both himself and a world he doesnt recognize anymore. One cant help but think: Same, man.
MORRISSEY
LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL
$12.99(sale priced)
The British indie king-in-exile continues his misanthropic streak on his umpteenth uncompromising denunciation of the brutal idiocy of humankind. Societys hell, he declares for openers, as thumping drums, clanging guitars and horns of war assemble in a world of propaganda and occupation.Who Will Protect Us From the Police is typical of his contempt for uniform of all stripes, but the epic centrepiece I Bury the Living is next-level vitriol. Sung from the hapless viewpoint of a sweet little soldier (gimme an order and Ill blow up your daughter), its thrashing refrain of honour mad canon fodder is unlikely to garner many RSL invitations.Theres trademark tragicomic self-pity, too, between the Christmas bells of Home Is a Question Mark and the dancing electric piano of Spent the Day In Bed. The classic Mozzer trope of withering from sexual neglect reaches a new pitch of terror in the stampeding finale of Jackys Only Happy When Shes Up On the Stage.
