April 2006 Selected Album Releases

Here is this month's selected rock/pop/hip hop/indie releases. It's good to see Josh Todd and Buckcherry back with their first album since 2001's Time Bomb. And Busta Rhymes finally follow's up 2003 It Ain't Safe No More. For those of you waiting for Live's seventh studio album, the release date for Songs From Black Mountain has been pushed back from April 11th until May 9th, 2006. We'll see if they can regain their luster as one of the top post-grunge rock bands. Speaking of post-grunge bands, Godsmack returns with their fourth full length album, and promises a return to their roots, along with some great new music. Lastly, if you have never seen a picture of Lacuna Coil lead singer Cristina Scabbia , do yourself a favor and check her out. She is one of the best-looking lead singers in hard rock today (and she appears in concert w/ Rob Zombie in Des Moines this month!) Without further adieu, here is April's Release list:
