Alanis Morrisette 'Montreux,' Snoop Lion, Phoneix, Rob Zombie, Michael Bublé Among Week's New Music Releases

  |   Comments

It's not a banner week for the new releases this week, which is just as well because I haven't been able to acquire all the awesome flung at us last week. There are a few titles of note for April 23, so we'll give them their moment in the sun and make you aware of what's out there.

Our ranking official Gen. Jabbo reviewed Alanis Morrisette's Live At Montreux 2012, whic is available in audio and video formats this week. There's no denying the impact her Jagged Little Pill record had in the mid '90s and while she's never again reached those same commercial heights, she has maintained a following and in some minds gone on to do more interesting work than the album that made her famous. Here, she performs songs from across her career at the famed festival.

Snoop Dogg is no longer... welcome Snoop Lion and his reggae incarnation. I don't especially covet rap music and am not big for reggae either so this isn't high on my list (did I really just say "high?" That was truly unintended but I'm not editing it out) but I admit a mild curiosity. Snoop has had a longer shelf life than a lot of hip hop stars, maintains a strong following, and his laconic cadence is one I can actually imagine working in a reggae setting. Will it? Does it? That's up to you to determine because I'm sitting this one out.

Michael Bublé is something of a polarizing figure in the music world with some questioning is authenticity and originality and others gobbling up his every release. Well gobblers, To Be Loved is his latest; yours if you want it.

With that... here are this week's New Music Releases for Tuesday, April 23
