Out This Week / on 13 April 2018

Manic Street Preachers / Resistance Is Futile (new album)

Is it possible to be bored of an album before it comes out? They announced their 13th long-player, Resistance Is Futile, and put it on their webstore back in November 2017, and thus the Manic Street Preachers have subjected fans to what feels like the longest album pre-order campaign in history. It’s finally out. Thank God!  Read more

David Bowie / CHANGESTWOBOWIE (CD / vinyl)

Never mind the Manics, resistance really is futile when it comes to David Bowie reissues. Despite Parlophone repeating their annoying ‘random’ vinyl thing (some are black some are blue) and this reissue of the 1981 compilation (also available on CD) being completely superfluous in terms of actual audio… we still want it, anyway. And that cover picture is just really cool. Read more

U2/ Pop and other vinyl reissues

U2 reissue their 1997 album Pop along with All That You Can’t Leave Behind and the Wide Awake in America EP. Read more

Neil Young + Promise of the Real to release soundtrack to 'Paradox'

Neil Young / Paradox

While the film Paradox sounds challenging and a bit self-indulgent, it has resulted in an accompanying Neil Young soundtrack, which is released on Friday. Read more

Tina Turner / The Greatest Hits

It might be a shameless tie-in with the West End musical, but this Tina Turner Greatest Hits is a two-CD set (containing 33 tracks) and has a great track listing. Best of all it’s under £6.

Juliana Hatfield / Sings Olivia Newton-John

“And tonight, Matthew…” –  Juliana Hatfield releases an album of Olivia Newton John cover versions. Read more

Gary Barlow / Open Road (21st Anniversary edition)

I was joking when I described Barlow as a ‘national treasure’ but he clearly divides people. Despite the dubious manufactured beginnings of Take That, Barlow has written enough good songs over the years to earn respect (Take That ‘comeback’ tune Patience is SDE’s favourite). That said, I remember being deeply unimpressed at the time with the singles from his first solo album Open Road, which to me seemed a bit boring and dull and lacked the pop economy of tracks like Back For GoodRead more

Barry White / Love’s Theme: The Best of the 20th Century Records Singles

This new compilation contains 21 of Barry White‘s iconic hits and features newly remastered audio from the 20th Century Records master tapes. Double vinyl and CD both feature new notes and track details. Connoisseurs should go for the 46-track triple-CD ‘complete’ singles set which offers a more detailed overview of this era.

Love / Forever Changes (50th anniversary box set)

The Damned‘s first new album in 10 years was produced by a certain Tony Visconti. Guitarist Captain Sensible said: “We deliberately recorded the album retro style – the same way our debut album was made, basically.”

Metallica / The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Revisited

There’s nothing like putting a jokey reference to the price in a release to date it. Metallica‘s $5.98 EP is being reissued and is now three times the price, although the CD EP is offered in a lenticular ‘longbox’ for maximum retro appeal.  Read more
