February 27 Notable Releases

A few of the 2,580 new and re-released albums coming out this week.

Money Mark -- Brand New By Tomorrow. First solo album in several years from this long time Beastie Boys collaborator.

Manowar -- Gods of War. Let me just start with a direct quote from the band's pr-o-machine. "Manowar's First Volume in a Cycle of Concept Albums; Each a Tribute to a Different War God. This 2007 Limited Edition Issue Comes in an Embossed Metal Slipcase Containing a High Grade Mediabook Bound in Leather, also featuring a Bonus Dvd with Previously Unreleased Material About the Making of this Album and Special Behind-the-scenes Footage." This is special edition is really good news for those of you who couldn't wait until April 3 for the regular version of the album. Also in case you didn't know, Manowar once came in number 1 in a Russian poll of the greatest rock bands of all time (Beatles a lowly number 2). They also actually look like their cover art in real life; naked, rippling muscles and so gay, a pile of naked women cannot distract from their gayness. Not that there is anything wrong with that, obvs.

Dean & Britta -- Back Numbers. 50% of Luna bring us their second post-Luna album with a mix of loungy originals and covers. P.S., Luna.
