New CD Album Releases, 5-24-2011: Lady Gaga, Brad Paisley

I don’t know what’s wrong with people. Sales of music have fallen in half over the last dozen years or so – and the most popular thing that they actually do spend music money on is a tired, homely and utterly talentless whore like Lady Gaga. I can’t even be bothered to make fun of her. She has a new album this week.

Then there’s a new Brad Paisley album. I think he’s supposed to be a “country” singer. I know I’ve heard a few of his songs, but damned if I can remember any of them. Don’t know why anyone would need to fool with stuff like this when they’re still making Hank Williams and Tom T Hall albums.
