April 17 Notable Releases

A few of the 1,148 new and re-released albums coming out this week.

Nine Inch Nails -- Year Zero. NIN and Reznor first release in several years looks to harken back to the industrial pop of Pretty Hate Machine. While Trent doesn't want us to call it marketing, the interactive game, conspiracy story, online experience that has led up to the album may be a landmark effort in both the communications industry and the major lable music industry which has been desperately devoid of fresh thinking since the invention of the super saver sticker.

Page McConnell -- Page McConnell. Phishy keyboard player releases his first solo album with a little help from each of his ex-bandmates (though not on all the same songs). I'll trade you a grilled cheese I made here in the parking lot and these far out pants I made from hemp and pubes for a live bootleg of the album, if ya' got one man.

Avril Lavigne -- The Best Damn Thing. Avril looks to prove she's got more staying power than her previous skinny ties on grrrls fashion statement.
