Tuesdays are big in entertainmentville: Not only do all the new DVD releases hit Netflix, but new music also pours into stores, including iTunes. So I take a spin through each week's iTunes music releases and pick out some albums and tracks worthy of a download. In addition to my picks below, you can also download David Cook's self-titled debut album. Here's what's on my list this week:
Queen of fierce: Beyonce's third album, out today, is actually two discs (which is somewhat meaningless to us downloaders). The first 10 songs or so are all ballads sung from the heart by Beyonce, but for the rest of the songs she morphs into an alter ego named Sasha Fierce (can you read that without giggling?) who fiercely sings some fierce dance songs. I'm already a big fan of "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" and am really impressed with "Radio," which is way more techno than I'm used to Beyonce sounding. "Video Phone" is another totally unexpected track that makes the Sasha Fierce name start to make sense.
They call her mellow: The critics seem to agree, Dido's voice sure is comforting, but that doesn't mean her songs aren't totally melancholy. It's been awhile since Dido released new music, and Safe Trip Home will not disappoint folks who dig her. I'm already enjoying several tracks, including "Don't Believe in Love" because of the sad violins in the background (reminds me of Al Green's "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart") and the delicate "Look No Further."
One more pick still to come if you just read more
