Check Out Reviews of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lil Wayne, Kittie and More in Our New Release Roundup
Published Aug 30, 2011As Tuesday rolls around again, we have you covered with the latest reviews of this week's new releases. Over in the Recently Reviewed section, you can read all about new albums by everyone from Red Hot Chili Peppers, to Kittie, to Lil Wayne, Glen Campbell and Male Bonding.
First off, Red Hot Chili Peppers are finally back in the spotlight with their new album I'm With You. With the band now without beloved guitar hero John Frusciante, find out how they fared and how they've come to experiment with everything from cabaret to disco.
Canadian ladies Kittie return to the metal scene with I've Failed You, their sixth studio album. Read up on the cohesive yet aggressive new material and learn why it garnered an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week.
Next up, we have a review of Male Bonding's sophomore album. Featuring "another dozen frenzied, fuzz-laden tracks," Endless Now shows the band coming into their own sound. Also, there's Jacuzzi Boys' newest LP Glazin', Devon Williams's Euphoria and Hella's Tripper.
Finally, after recently being diagnosed with Alzheimer's, country legend Glen Campbell's Ghost on the Canvas serves as poignant farewell -- one deserving of an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence. And on the opposite end of the musical spectrum, hip-hop heavy hitter Lil Wayne has finally delivered his long-delayed and much-anticipated Tha Carter IV. But was it worth the wait?
