Here is a breakdown of some of the releases that are hitting this week.
Korn Korn III – Remember Who You Are: One of the biggest bands of the last two decades prove you can go home again. One of their best, according to our editor, Rick Florino.
M.I.A. Maya: She's such a provocateur. But there tons of underground rappers doing what she does, doing it better and getting less press. I guess that's what happen when a Seth Rogen movie uses your song and T.I. samples it with Jay-Z and Kanye. Oh, and when you perform while bursting with pregnancy at the Grammys, people pay attention. But given all the press M.I.A. gets for Tweeting journalist phone numbers when she doesn't like what they print about her, will it translate to album sales? We shall see next week, won't we? She's the rap world's version of Courtney Love, redux, 2.0.
In This Moment A Star Crossed Wasteland: Chick signer. Meaty guitars. Kids like the two, especially when under age 15.
Hellyeah Stampede: Former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul rocks with members of Mudvayne and Nothingface on the band's second album. Get on board or get run over by the band's cowboy-friendly anthems. If you want music to forget your troubles to, this is it. So don't drown your sorrows or stuff yourself at the buffet. Listen to this, instead.
