Does Rob Thomas Deliver The Goods On His Third Album?

8/25/2015 12:15pm EDT
Review: Rob Thomas Delivers On Third Album ‘The Great Unknown’
It has been six years since the last Rob Thomas album – shocking right? In 2009, Thomas issued Cradlesong, his sophomore album following a successful first outing with Something To Be. Cradlesong couldn’t match the success of Thomas’ debut, no matter how good “Her Diamonds” was. Now a half-decade plus later, Thomas must find his niche in ever-changing pop circles. Somehow, Thomas manages to accomplish this feat on his third effort The Great Unknown, keeping things contemporary by pop standards in 2015. At the same time, Thomas doesn’t drift away from what makes him, well, Rob Thomas fo...

Luke Bryan Stays At No. 1

Luke Bryan Makes It Two Weeks Atop Billboard 200
It’s hard to topple a king, and that’s exactly what country singer Luke Bryan is this week. After dropping Kill The Lights with robust numbers last week, Bryan manages to keep the top spot warm for a second consecutive week. No, he couldn’t score another 345,000 units, but he was good enough for another 99,000. Sophomore week blues happen to everybody, even when you’re a “Country Man” like Bryan.

So with Luke at the top once more, were there any newbies that debuted in the top 10? Yes. Melanie Martinez entered at #6 with her unique debut effort Cry Baby moving 40,000 units. The numbe...

Celine Dion's Terminally Ill Husband Reveals His Final Wishes, W
Celine Dion is returning to her Las Vegas residency following a year-long hiatus to take care of her sick husband, Rene Angelil, who is battling throat cancer. He was the one who pushed her to get back to work.

She told USA Today: "I didn't want to be here at first, I don't need it. Don't get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities. But René really gave me a gift. All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I've got this. For now. When it hits me, it's going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we're fine. I'll take care of our kids. You'll wat...

Review: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

8/24/2015 11:20am EDT
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats Go Retro On Self-Titled De
Singer/songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff is not new to the game – he’s dropped two albums ahead of 2015’s Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Even so, Rateliff isn’t exactly a household name. After listening to his third album and the debut by the collective as a whole, perhaps Rateliff’s stock will rise. The “sweat” is real on Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – the energy is crazy. It’s imperfect, but it’s definitely an album with some great moments.

“I Need Never Get Old” gets the LP off to a rollicking, fast start. A mix of retro-soul a la Motown (and Stax) with a dash of c...
