Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. Wire, Red Barked Tree
(The post-punk legends return with an album that sounds much fresher than they happen to be. If you closed your eyes, and forgot the middle-age of this rock band, you would think these songs come from some promising newcomers. Insanely listenable.)

2. Ghostface Killah, Apollo Kids
(Enigmatic Wu-Tang Clan rapper comes back strong with his best LP in years.)

3. The Decemberists, The King Is Dead
(Thankfully, these overachievers have trimmed the fat of their epic tendencies and opted for a solid selection of folk-inspired anthems.)

4. Nicki Minaj, Pink Friday
(You know her as the best part of Kanye West’s “Monster.” On her solo LP, she jumps between R&B pop and club-ready rap.)

5. Duran Duran, All You Need Is Now
(With some help from producer Mark Ronson, the kings of the New Romantics stop trying to sound modern and instead make an album that puts them firmly back in 1986. Welcome back.)
