Guardians Of The Galaxy Soundtrack Ascends To #1: This Week In Music

August 14th, 2014 8:55am EDT
Guardians Of The Galaxy Soundtrack Ascends To #1: This Week In M
On the Billboard 200, only one album managed to surpass the 100,000 copies mark. Most surprising is the fact that it’s an album that seemed to come out of nowhere. The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack ascends to #1 after outperforming expectations it’s first week, debuting at #3 selling 60,000 copies. This week, Guardians of the Galaxy, Awesome Mix Vol. 1 sells 109,000 copies.

Guardians of the Galaxy definitely killed the vibe of Now 51, which settles for second place, selling 94,000 copies. 94K is respectable, particularly given album sales throughout the course of 2014. Godsmack ...

Godsmack And Spoon Lead New Albums: This Week In Music

August 5th, 2014 9:00am EDT
Godsmack
Summer 2014, sadly, remains a lethargic time for new music. July definitely didn’t give folks much reason to pull out their billfolds or redeem those handy-dandy iTunes cards to purchase a full album. Honestly, everyone should be thanking 5 Seconds of Summer for providing a lift with their self-titled debut.

This first week in August isn’t exactly ‘hot’ either (still talking about albums here of course), but as The Temptations once sung, “beauty’s only skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah!” While the industry could stand that Taylor Swift sized release about now, a pop compilation (Now 51) and ...

2010: The Year That Was – Best Of

December 19th, 2010 1:13pm EST
2010 Best Of
Though 2010 saw a number of good releases from bands all across the musical spectrum, but in the end, it boiled down to a two horse race essentially between the Deftones and their career-defining masterpiece Diamond Eyes and Filter’s career-saving, comeback opus the Trouble with Angels. Both have their strong points, and while neither have many weak points, Diamond Eyes takes the cake. Though the Deftones slot in as Getexposedmusic’s 2010 Album of the Year with Diamond Eyes, keep in mind that Filter and the Trouble with Angels isn’t far behind.

So, sit back, relax and enjoy, he said employ...

Godsmack - 'The Oracle'

Godsmack - the Oracle
Godsmack - “The Oracle” (Republic Records)

Godsmack have always been about one thing- writing entertaining and ass-kicking aggressive hard rock. Well go figure that their latest, and fifth, studio release “the Oracle” is no different. To all those Godsmack haters prepared to completely kill this record because it isn’t reinventing the wheel, ask yourself, why does this band need to change their sound? They have consistently been one of the rock world’s premiere acts because this is what they do, and they are the best at it. “The Oracle” marks the bands re-ascension to the top of the modern...
