Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. The Cure, The Cure (They make quite an impressive comeback with their darkest and most song-oriented work since Disintegration. Great goth stuff here.)

2. Lloyd Banks, Hunger For More (Everything 50 Cent touches really does turn to gold. This MC from G-Unit surprisingly turns out a brooding and powerful solo debut. Easily the hardcore hip-hop album to beat for the summer.)

3. Wilco, A Ghost Is Born (Dense and complicated, this album is even more challenging than their last. But, as the layers begin to reveal themselves, it becomes more and more beautiful. Not the classic their last was, but what is?)

4. VH1: I Love the 70s, 80s, 90s (These three separate compilations are not sorry about only really highlighting the tacky one-hit wonders of their respective decades. It’s a different take on decade retrospective albums, and matches the fun vibe of the show it’s based on.)

5. Butterfly Boucher, Flutterby (This Aussie pop/rocker delivers the kind of Lilith Fair-ready album Sarah McLachlan failed to make. A nice and catchy, radio-friendly debut.)
