Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of December 16th 2008
- Fall Out Boy Foilex A Duex
Help Pete Wentz pay for diapers. You can even buy the record off the band’s MySpace page for $3.99 and it’s worth it. Tracks like “She’s My Winona” and the single, “I Don’t Care,” are poptastically terrific.
- Ghostface KillahGhostedeini The Great
“I just want to celebrate,” he says and this rad record will def put you in the mood to party! If James Bond was gangsta, these would be his jams.
- All American Rejects When The World Comes Down
“I wanna touch you, you wanna touch me too.” It’s true. It’s like they can read our minds and then they add guitars and even violins.
- Keyshia Cole A Different Me
On her opening track, she says she “would like to introduce a sexier side of me.” Well, she’s not wearing any pants on her record cover and her songs are soft talk R&B. Yet, she just doesn’t grab me the way her sexy image promises.
- Anthony Hamilton The Point Of It All
Classic ’70s-sounding R&B tracks like “Please Stay” pull me in, but weird Muppet-like vocal affectations ruin perfectly cool songs like “Fallin’ In Love.” If you’re looking for a soulful record to screw to, just buy the last Al Green record and skip this newbie.
- Soulja Boy I Soulja Boy Tell’em
The tracks are hot and he’s got some rhymes, but this boy just yells ‘em at you. He lacks the finesse of man.
- Jamie Foxx Intuition
This big name pulled some of the best in the business for his second record: Kanye, Lil Wayne, TI, and T-Pain. But the record just isn’t as powerful as the names behind it. Still, his collaboration with NeYo — an ode to independent women, “She Got Her Own” — is an awesome feminist tribute.
- Plies Da Realist
Rapper Plies is a young gun…literally, dude gets violent. No one can tell him what to do, as his best track/anthem addresses older people asking him to pull his pants up on his battle cry “Pants Hang Low.” Barack Obama, are you listening?
- Brutha Brutha
This five brother act is like the new New Kids On The Block. Their music is Top 40 to a fault, but people love them and their BET reality show “Brother to Brutha”.
- “Mamma Mia”
My, my, how can I resist you?!
- “Drake Bell In Concert”
The Nickelodeon kid star is all grown up and rockin’ out!
- “Dr. Horribles Sing Along Blog”
Neil Patrick Harris sings his way into your heart, even though he’s a super bad sci-fi villain!
- “Generation Kill”
The HBO series about the U.S. military’s first 40 days in Iraq drives the horror home.
- “Burn After Reading”
Brad Pitt, George Clooney, John Malkovich — this movie is so hot it’ll probably burn itself. Oh yeah, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton also star in the Coen brothers’ flick!
- “The House Bunny”
Anna Farris plays a hilarious Playboy centerfold with a heart of gold.
- “Planet Terror”
Rose McGowan battles zombies with a machine gun for a leg. Director Robert Rodriguez sure knows what to give a woman.
- “Louis CK: Chewed Up”
Louis jokes about wanting a woman roughed up my motherhood. Hot.
- “The Women”
Despite an all-star cast, this flick flopped more than old lady boobs around the pool in Florida.
- “Criterion Collection: Bottle Rocket”
Hot ginge Wes Anderson’s first film gets even more collectible.
