The sophomore album from 11x Platinum-certified, 43x Gold-certified, and GRAMMY®-winning rock icon COREY TAYLOR .“I have no fear when it comes to music. None,” Corey Taylor declares. “It feels so good to really lean into the things that I've been chomping at the bit to do.” Those “things”? The 13 diverse, unforgettable songs on CMF2, ranging from the punchy, timeless first single “Beyond” to “Someday I’ll Change Your Mind,” a soaring, sentimental stunner with an infectious chorus. The songs move seamlessly from the punk rawness and anthemic rallying cry of “We Are The Rest” to the acoustic lament “Breath Of Fresh Smoke” to “Post Traumatic Blues,” which has a wild sensibility that echoes the lyrical topic of PTSD.

A defining album of the 90s, Last Splash by The Breeders turns 30 this year. To celebrate, the band have returned to the original tapes to give it its first-ever remaster, and by doing so have also unearthed two lost tracks that will delight fans. 
  
Recorded by the ‘classic’ Breeders line-up of Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson and featuring singles ‘Cannonball’ and ‘Divine Hammer’, Last Splash was “an alt-rock classic” (Pitchfork’s Top 100 Records of 1990s) on release; a fast seller too, quickly attaining Platinum status in the US. 
 
Despite having had the boxset treatment on its 20th birthday, the album was still left to be remastered so 10 years on, the original ½” tapes were taken out of the archives and have been lovingly worked on by Kim Deal, Benjamin Mumphrey and Miles Showell (Abbey Road). 
 
Never sounding so good, the album for its 30th anniversary, it’s getting the ultimate vinyl pressing. Entitled Last Splash (the 30th Anniversary Original Analog Edition), this new version has been cut at half speed at Abbey Road by Miles Showell, now spanning two LPs and running at 45rpm. 
 
This edition contains an exclusive, one-sided etched 12” which features two previously unreleased tracks – ‘Go Man Go’ and ‘Divine Mascis’ (‘Go Man Go’ is a track that Kim co-wrote with Black Francis while ‘Divine Mascis’ is a different version of ‘Divine Hammer’ with Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis on lead vocals). Both tracks originate from the original sessions and were left forgotten until the sessions were exhumed to create this new master. 
 
The attention to detail continues to the album’s art, which equally celebrates Vaughan Oliver’s iconic sleeve. With Vaughan sadly no longer with us, his long-time design partner Chris Bigg has gloriously reimagined the album’s sleeve for this new version.

Vinyl LP pressing. To call American Nightmare an iconic hardcore band is an understatement. The enigmatic act may have only released two full-length albums since forming nearly two decades ago but after temporarily losing their name, changing members and breaking up, the band has risen from the ashes with an album that expands their legacy and reestablishes them as titans of the genre. "We've progressed to the true essence of the band," frontman Wes Eisoldexplains. "In making this record we had one goal: To make a hardcore punk album that was true to American Nightmare, who we were then and who we are now. No filler, just existential poetic venom. This is ground zero, a new life for the band."

Recorded when they were still in high school, The Donnas' 1997 debut was and will forever be one of the most infectious, sing-along slabs of punk ever waxed. Owing no small debt to the Ramones (all the way down to their sharing of "anonymous" names), the girls gleefully turn the sex, drugs, and rock and roll dials up to 11, except this time it's the females that are looking for some action ("I wanna huff all night" and "I'm gonna get in his pants tonight" are two representative lyrical lines). And for our Real Gone reissue of this classic, you are getting The Donnas raw and unfiltered... that's right, we actually scored the original quarter-inch 2-track master tape to the album, so you're getting an all-analog version of this punk-rock masterpiece. Band commentary just adds to the fun. Natural with black swirl vinyl pressing! A1. Hey I'm Gonna Be Your Girl A2. Let's Go Mano! A3. Teenage Runaway A4. Lana & Stevie A5. I'm Gonna Make Him (Tonight) A6. Huff All Night A7. I Don't Wanna Go B1. We Don't Go B2. Friday Fun B3. Everybody's Smoking Cheeba B4. Get Rid of That Girl B5. Drive In B6.

Better production? Check. Better musicianship? Check. A more mature attitude? $#@! no! Released just a year after The Donnas' first, self-titled record, American Teenage Rock 'N' Roll Machine slowed the tempos a bit-think more Runaways and KISS, less Ramones-but, with songs like "Checkin' It Out" and "Leather on Leather," the libidinous lyrics remained unchecked. Nor did The Donnas' penchant for crafting catchy hooks, supercharged by the budding guitar heroics of Allison Robertson. Our reissue comes with a fresh remastering for vinyl from the original masters by Mike Milchner, and features band commentary along with the original "pin-up" calendar. Fire orange with black swirl pressing... shake in the action! A1. Rock 'N' Roll Machine A2. You Make Me Hot A3. Checkin' It Out A4. Gimmie My Radio A5. Outta My Mind B1. Looking for Blood B2.

College Dropout

Vinyl: $36.99 Buy

MP3 Album: $11.49 Download

Special edition double vinyl LP. The week this debut album came out, Kanye's name was all over the Top 20s for his hit singles "Through the Wire," "Jesus Walks," "All Falls Down" and "Slow Jamz." What's even more remarkable is that this breakthrough came during his recovery from a car wreck that nearly took his life-the song "Through the Wire" is about the accident, and was recorded two weeks after he was in the hospital, with his jaw still wired shut. He's hailed the event as both the worst thing that could've happened to him, and the best. The record sold 441,000 copies in it's very first week and has been named both by "Time" and "Rolling Stone" as one of the greatest albums of all time. Guest appearances here include Jay-Z, John Legend, Ervin "EP" Pope, Miri Ben-Ari, Syleena Johnson and Jamie Foxx.

But Here We Are is the new album from Foo Fighters, and marks the bands return after a year of staggering losses, personal introspection and bittersweet remembrances. A brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters have endured recently, But Here We Are is a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family. Courageous, damaged and unflinchingly authentic, the album opens with “Rescued,” the first of 10 songs that run the emotional gamut from rage and sorrow to serenity and acceptance, and myriad points in between.

But Here We Are is in nearly equal measure the 11th Foo Fighters album and the first chapter of the band’s new life. Sonically channeling the naiveté of Foo Fighters’ 1995 debut, informed by decades of maturity and depth, But Here We Are is the sound of brothers finding refuge in the music that brought them together in the first place 28 years ago, a process that was as therapeutic as it was about a continuation of life.
