This week brought a lot of new and awesome albums. Unfortunately, a lot of releases get overlooked for coverage by the release date due to limited resources (or interest).

These releases have nothing to do with each other and would probably never be put together other than they unfortunately happen to share the same release date and they are all getting reviewed by me.
