New Release Tuesday

Every Tuesday, Rusty tells you about some great CD's and DVD's you should probably stop pirating and go out and buy at your nearest retailer.

Easily one of the most anticipated albums is yours for the taking as
Neon Bible, the second album from the acclaimed Arcade Fire, hits shelves today. The best part about the follow up to 2004's lauded Funeral is that the Fire don't try to add anymore flames, but instead just follow the same formula and bring about even greater results. Pitchfork even surprised its readers with the 8.2 review posted yesterday (then again, they did give Funeral an astounding 9.7, and named it their album of the year in 04.) At any rate, it's definitely worth the wait and the buy. Especially for the re-working of "No Cars Go." If you feel like spending an extra couple bucks, pick up the deluxe edition which features two 32-page flips books in super special clamshell packaging.

Making his way as the first member of the Strokes to release a solo project, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.'s debut hits shelves in the states today after a warm reception overseas last fall. And for those who already spent money importing the album who don't think it's worth picking up again, the U.S. version has two bonus tracks, including a cover of "Postal Blowfish," originally done by Guided By Voices. Make sure to see him on the road this month opening up for Bloc Party.

What should easily be known as one of the funniest movies of the past quarter century, Borat - Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, is released today on DVD. For those who couldn't get enough laugh, the DVD comes packed with a half hour worth of deleted scenes. I remember seeing this in the theater and laughing so hard I cried. The first time I saw it I couldn't catch my breath during what is the greatest scene of the film (I won't spoil it for those reading this who might be living on Neptune.) Not so sure how they're going to pull of a sequel, but according to 20th Century Fox it is in the works.
