For Katy Perry fans, they are ecstatic that she continues her reign as one of the perennial pop queens, plus an X Factor group premieres  their debut album.

1.) Katy Perry : "Prism"  - With her 4th album under her belt, Perry reveals that she is very in the moment with this latest album. She went through a lot while making it, getting divorced and hooking up with John Mayer. Gone are the gimmicky blue wigs, and fans get to see the her more vulnerable side. Check out her latest release called "unconditionally."

2.)  Fifth Harmony (girl group formed during the second season of "The X Factor USA"): "Better Together" (five-song EP) I really like these girls and who knows maybe they will find lightning in a bottle like One Direction.

3.) Def Leppard : "VIVA! Hysteria" (live at the Joint in Las Vegas in March 2013) These guys are one of my favorite hair bands ever and I was lucky enough to see them live...amazing.

-Backstreet Boys :"The Essential Backstreet Boys" (two CDs, 29 songs)

-Pearl Jam : "The Essential Pearl Jam" (two CDs)
