February New Album Releases

Feb 4/5

Sheryl Crow - Detours. Sheryl Crow returns with her 6th studio album. The buzz is really good for this one, as she's reunited with Bill Bottrell, the producer of her first hit album, Tuesday Night Music Club. Entertainment Weekly gave it an "A." I listened to clips on her Web site: "Now You're Gone," "Love Is All There Is" and "Gasoline" sound awesome.

Hot Chip - Made in the Dark. The electronic/pop band returns with their third album, following up acclaimed hit The Warning. It's already earned 4-star reviews from Rolling Stone and Uncut. Preview the album here.

Jack Johnson – Sleeping Through The Static

Lenny Kravitz – It’s Time For A Love Revolution

Feb 11/12
Michael Jackson - Thriller [25th Anniversary Edition]. The Akon remake of "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" doesn't excite me, and neither does the prospect of "The Girl Is Mine" with Will.I.Am (although "Beat It" with Fergie might be fun). Still, if you already picked up the remastered version that came out a few years ago, you only need this if you really want to remakes.
One Night Only – Started A Fire. The band's debut, features current single "Just for Tonight," which I like.

Morrissey – Greatest Hits
Feb 18
The Feeling – Join With Me. The Feeling follows up their solid debut Twelve Stops and Home. New album features lively current hit "I Thought It Was Over" (and band features hot lead singer Dan Gillespie Sells).
Simple Plan – Simple Plan
Feb 25/26
Goldfrapp - Seventh Tree. Their fourth album, featuring lovely first single "A&E." I'm really looking forward to this one.
Janet Jackson – Discipline. Remember when Janet Jackson scored a record seven top 5 hits (including four #1s) from one album? Well that was almost 20 years ago, and the biggest hit she's had in the last 6 years only peaked at #25. Ouch. Maybe this album--her 10th--can turn that around.
