Check Out Reviews of the Books, Rick Ross, the Department of Eagles and More in New Release Tuesday
It's Tuesday, meaning a pile of new album reviews are up today on Exclaim.ca. So be sure to click through to our Recently Reviewed music section to get your fix.

First up, we have the latest from the Books, a collage music duo from NYC that have released their anticipated fourth album, The Way Out. While checking out the review, you could also give the record a listen for yourself via this stream here.

Next, there is Tradition, the a moniker for experimental folk artist James Klassen (not to be confused with the '80s reggae band of the same name). The new album, In Small Gestures So Huge Love Is Everywhere, might sound sad on the surface, but our reviewer reckons there's something else underneath.

Picking up the pace, grungy Scandinavian electronic music meets pop on K-X-P's self-titled debut album, which earns the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week. Also, BC singer-songwriter Frazey Ford's debut solo album Obadiah was released today. Before her solo career, Ford was a founding member of the Be Good Tanyas.

Indie pop/experimental duo Department of Eagles have released a compilation of rarities called Archive 2003 - 2006, which is compiles of tracks recorded prior to their critically acclaimed 2008 release, In Ear Park. And thrash metal outfit Early Man have released Death Potion, an album filled with nods to thrash's good ol' days.

Finally, Canadian roots artist Kim Beggs has released Blue Bones, a lovely little mix of cover songs and original material, while rapper Rick Ross has finally dropped his Teflon Don.
