New CD Album Releases, 6-28-2011: Christopher Titus, Beyonce, Dolly Parton, Billy Ray Cyrus

Christopher Titus
The likeliest new album this week is a straight stand-up comedy album from Christopher Titus, Neverlution. I usually wouldn’t think of actually buying a straight album of talking. There are a very few here and there worth a listen, but I can’t think of many not made by Richard Pryor that are worth hearing repeatedly. But Christopher Titus is brilliant, and created one of the all time greatest situation comedies. When Chris Titus talks, he’s actually substantially got something to say.

I loves me some Dolly Parton, and she looks really good for 65 years – but this album ain’t sounding like much from what I’ve heard. Saw her performance of “Together You and I” on the Ellen Degeneres show, and this might have been the absolute suckingest song I’ve ever heard her sing.
