Weezer Raditude (Amazon)
I still remember the day I got Weezer's blue album, way way back in junior high school. It was probably the second CD I ever bought, after Dookie. My eleven year old self thought I was so cool listening to all that angsty rock & roll. Man, memories. Anyway these guys are still making music 15 years later. Raditude is their seventh studio album, and the title was a suggestion from actor Rainn Wilson.
Andrea Bocelli My Christmas (Amazon)
The first-ever Christmas album from Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli makes its debut this week. It's a compilation of seasonal favorites, mostly in English with some very special guests including Reba McEntire, Mary J. Blige and The Muppets (!!). So now you know what to get your mom for Christmas.
