Published Jul 13, 2010As most of you out there know, Tuesday is new release day, so we have a pile of new reviews up for grabs in our Recently Reviewed music section.
We're starting things off with the always controversial M.I.A., whose new album // / Y / is out this week. The record is M.I.A.'s most abrasive, contradictory and thematically vacant outing to date, but perhaps it's best for you to just read the review.
Next up, Norma Jean might have the least metal-sounding name in metal, but their new album, Meridional, has earned the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence. And speaking of metal, Sweden's Soilwork recently released The Panic Broadcast, a strong addition to their seven-album catalogue.
Slowing things down a touch, we have Boxer the Horse, a pop rock outfit from Charlottetown, PEI, and their first full-length album, Would You Please. Also, Canadian folk rock legend Buffy Sainte-Marie has released The Pathfinder: Buried Treasures, a collection of songs from the '70s.
It's a bold move naming your band after a much-loved soccer anthem. However, Halifax's Glory Glory Man United have lasted long enough without a lawsuit to release Zombies!!!, a full-length debut that received top marks from our reviewer.
Be sure to check out this week's reviews and keep up with our list of New and Forthcoming Release Dates. Read these reviews and more at the Exclaim! Recently Reviewed music section.
