It is another slow week for any major artist releases, but I did manage to find a few nuggets and re-releases that may be exciting to some.

1.) A Great Big World: "Is There Anybody Out There?" (first single: "Say Something," feat. Christina Aguilera) Win, Win for this band and Christina, they are now on the map and Christina is back on the map musically. Even though the single "Say Something" makes me want to cry, it is an amazing song!

2.) Cowboy Junkies : "The Kennedy Suite"  I remember years ago when this band first came out, I told all my friends how much i loved them solely because I thought their name was cool....wow.

3.) Scorpions: "MTV Unplugged" (new acoustic versions of their hits, plus five new songs; recorded Sept. 11-12, 2013, at Lycabettus Theatre in Athens, Greece) Scorpions Unplugged...enough said. :)
