New Records (week of 8/13/13)

Introducing a new weekly series; New records. Covering some of the weeks hottest releases on vinyl. Can't buy them all but one a week is reasonable. Right? Or maybe one every two weeks? I'll suggest a record each week and you can decide if it's worth a purchase.

Out this week (Tuesday August 13, 2013)

Limited vinyl 180g pressing contains all of the 12 original tracks. There is no added content but who cares. I'm a sucker for some good punk, metal, hard rock on vinyl and I'm sure this record will hit all of those soft spots in a couple loud spins.  Even though this record received a lot of radio play, it has somehow managed to stand the test of time. Unlike other bands and albums of equal success, I don't find myself annoyed with the tracks from hearing them too many times.

My all-time favorite Nirvana record is Bleach but I often think Nevermind might be the better record. I'll see if the warmth of this upcoming vinyl release playing on my record player can finally put it ahead in my mind.  Definitely my must buy record for this week.
