With over a decade between album releases, the Verve's fourth album, Forth, gets its US release tomorrow, and is also available in a double-album vinyl package that also includes the CD.
Matthew Sweet's Sunshine Lies is my most anticipated release from the king of power pop. The album features contributions from Susannah Hoffs of the Bangles as well as longtime collaborators Richard Lloyd, Ric Menck, and others.
The week's reissues include the self-titled album from Hindu Love Gods (Warren Zevon fronting a Michael Stipe-less REM) and several Alice Cooper reissues.
