New Album Round-up

Since I've lost my FTP capabilities for a few months - AOTW is on hold. But if I could keep that wonderful little project going here are some of the newer albums I would have sent your way.

1. Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel - This one is a little retro throw-back to the period between Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion. It is pretty good but takes some time to grow on you.

2. Jello Biafra and the Melvins - Sieg Howdy - this is more an EP because half the tracks are remixes of the first album. But otherwise, boy howdy! The new songs kick sooo much ass! Kalifornia Uber Alles 21st Century is awesome! This concert is going to totally rule - for the ones lucky enuff to be going.

3. Gang of Four - Return the Gift - the post-punk masters re-record an album's worth of their legendary song catalouge. This album is like a greatest hits only better because we get super-produced updated versions of all the greatest songs.

4. KMFDM - Hau Ruck - I can not stress enough how kick ass this album is. Old Sasha finally perfected that post-En Esch/Gunter sound he's been tooling with for the last 5 years. This album rocks all the way through on ever damn song without a single low point. Seriously kids - this one rules! Best full album since Symbols!
