New Music Purchases

    While in Chicago this weekend I stopped at my local Best Buy and picked up a few essentials. On the music front, I opted for the brand new Blake Lewis album, Heartbreak On Vinyl as well as the new Madonna 2-disc compilation, Celebration. I am wishing I had purchased the recent Kylie remix compilation, Boombox, but perhaps next time. The Madonna disc was $22.00! Yikes! Blake Lewis was on sale for $7.99. Not too shabby.

    Blake LewisI am impressed with Blake’s album so far. Since he left Arista and joined forces with Tommy Boy, he released first single Sad Song and the rest of the album falls in line with that dance/pop style that I love so much right now. I honestly think that Tommy Boy is the right home for Blake at the moment. The album features solid production from the likes of S*A*M & Sluggo, Carl Ryden, Rodney Jerkins, Dave Audé, Blake himself and others. I’ve always loved Blake so I hope he at least has some success on the dance charts with this album.

    Madonna This purchase was a bit impulsive, especially considering I already have most of the other songs on CD. I was going to buy the single disc version Madonna’s final album for Warner Brothers but it didn’t contain “Revolver,” the Lil’ Wayne track. All in all, I’m happy that I bought the disc. I still want to get the DVD with all of the videos. I will have to save that for another day and another dollar (or $20).
