Amy Winehouse - Lioness: Hidden Treasures
This is the first posthumous album from Miss Winehouse since her untimely death in July. After so many years of recording sessions and promises of a release "soon," it's sad that it took her passing for a follow-up to Back to Black to be released. It is a welcome release, though. Featuring new songs, re-recordings of old songs and covers, it serves as a respectful eulogy for a great artist. Rest in Peace, Amy.

The Black Keys - El Camino
Ah, I've been waiting for this one, actually pre-ordered the vinyl as soon as the album and release date were announced. It came today, along with a t-shirt, which I'm wearing right now while watching a live stream of their free show at Webster Hall in NYC. Yeah, I don't like this band at all. It's another great album from a great band, and my prediction was right, this will definitely be on the year-end list of my favorite albums of the year.
