New CD Releases for November 9th

Another week, another pointless list of the new CD releases. I know nobody buys CDs anymore, it's all .mp3 or iTunes where you can download a single song instead of a whole album. Personally, I would rather enjoy the music the way the artist meant it to be enjoyed, and not disjointed in a cut rate, low quality format.

The GiftSusan Boyle - The Gift
Susan 'The Gargoyle' Boyle has been photoshopped for her the cover of her Christmas offering, which is a refreshingly traditional collection of seasonal songs that would not be out of place at a school Christmas concert. All that is missing is the overzealous pianist/music teacher, a version of 'Calypso Carol' and the boy in the back row picking his nose instead of singing.
Track Listing
1. Perfect Day
2. Hallelujah
3. Do You Hear What I Hear (Duet with Amber Stassi)
4. Don't Dream It's Over
5. The First Noel
6. O Holy Night
7. Away In a Manager
8. Make Me a Channel of Your Peace
9. Auld Lang Syne
10. O Come All Ye Faithful

Bon Jovi Greatest Hits - The Ultimate CollectionBon Jovi - Greatest Hits
Who knew that Bon Jovi had enough material to release a greatest hits CD? And a 2 disc offering at that. Personally I think that Bon Jovi are overrated and should not be able to charge in excess of $100 for concert tickets.

All The Women I AmReba McEntire - All The Women I Am
Never heard of her, but her music sounds like good honest country. Maybe Reba is Shania Twain's mother. She kinda looks like that woman from that TV show where the woman gets to hang out with her ex-husband's new girlfriend. What was that show called?

Viva ELVIS- The AlbumElvis Presley - Viva ELVIS - The Album
We know that Elvis is the true king but the people from Cirque du Soleil have trashed his music while trying to cash in on his legacy. Now to rub salt into the wounds, they have released this soundtrack from the stage show. If you like your Elvis mashed with a little jazz, funk and hip hop then click the image and buy it right now. Otherwise, keep scrolling.

Track Listing
1. Opening
2. Blue Suede Shoes
3. That's All Right
4. Heartbreak Hotel
5. Love Me Tender
6. King Creole
7. Bossa Nova Baby
8. Burning Love
9. Memories
10. Can't Help Falling In Love
11. You'll Never Walk Alone - Piano Interlude
12. Suspicious Minds

Darkly Darkly Venus AversaCradle Of Filth - Darkly Darkly Venus Aversa
2 whole discs of British rock. What is wrong with that statement? Everything.
COF are not really a rock band. They are an ultra heavy, super fast metal band. Described as "Iron Maiden on crack in a graveyard of angels!" by one person and by another as "What in the hell is that shit?"

Also it is not 2 full discs. Disc 2 is only 4 tracks, so unless the band went for some serious extended guitar fornication like Knopfler or Satriani to fill the second disc then they should have just squeezed it onto disc 1.

And if anyone cares, Venus Aversa is an old slang term for (looks both ways and then whispers) Anal Sex.

Track Listing
Disc #1
1. The Cult Of Venus Aversa
2. One Foul Step from the Abyss
3. The Nun with the Astral Habit
4. Retreat of the Sacred Heart
5. The Persecution Song
6. Deceiving Eyes
7. Lilith Immaculate
8. The Spawn Of Love and War
9. Harlot on a Pedestal
10. Forgive Me Father (I Have Sinned)
11. Beyond Eleventh Hour

Disc #2
1. Beast of Extermination
2. Truth & Agony
3. Mistress from the Sucking Pit
4. Behind the Jagged Mountain
