    What a week is for new albums with both Green Day and Norah Jones returning. Even Sum 41 brought new material to the party with 13 Voices, their first album in 5 years. Meanwhile, a new Joyce Manor record, Cody, hit the shelves. Kaiser Chiefs dropped their sixth study LP, Stay Together. And we're sure the followers of Phish will be happy with their newest effort, Big Boat.

    Did we mention Pitbull has a new record out? Climate Change is his 10th studio LP, and no it's not about global warming - the name of another Pitbull album. It's about changing the music industry. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with stunning new albums.

    Here are our favorites:








    Norah Jones - Day Breaks - Blue Note

    It's almost impossible to define Norah Jones' style, she has the sensibilities of a pop artist, the swagger of an every-night jazz player, and a heart made of blues. Day Breaks shows all sides of her compelling artistry, making for one of her finest efforts yet.


    Green Day - Revolution Radio - Reprise

    It's been four years since we last heard from Green Day. Revolution Radio finds the band once again commentating on America, a place where they found their stride a decade ago, but this record has more incommon with their 90s material than anything recent.


    Phantogram - Three - Republic

    Sure the title may be a bit on the nose - it's their third record - but this may be their strongest work from the duo yet.


    GTA - Good Times Ahead - Warner Bros. Records

    Miami-based duo GTA just unveiled their debut LP Good Times Ahead via Warner Bros. Records. For those unfamiliar with the duo, they've always been about defying genre, but Good Times Ahead is about more than that, and just like the title suggests, it finds the band looking forward rather than in the rearview.
