Tuesday means music and movie releases and today I went in search to two new albums.
First let me say I hate Wal-Mart. I try to avoid shopping at the low-price mecca. Remember glam fans, you get what you pay for.
Now a confession: I went to a local Wal-Mart Supercenter in search of both discs. I've been wanting both for two weeks, and I thought some new music would lift my spirits and help get me through the day.
When I finally made it to the electronics department I searched high and low for the new discs. I couldn't find a stand for new releases anywhere. In fact, I didn't even see a stand for new DVD releases. So I searched and walked in circles desperate for my new music.
I couldn't find either CD.
On my last ditch pass of the music section, I saw The Best of Slaughter for 5 bucks. I snatched the disc and took off for the cash register. After all, if I lower myself to Wal-Mart I'm going to come out with something.
Now, I only had a few minutes to listen to my new Slaughter CD because the Wal-Mart is fairly close to work.
The album includes the tracks:
Up All Night
Mad About You
The Wild Life
That's Not Enough
Out For Love
Days Gone By
Dance for Me Baby
Gave Me Your Heart
I am a little baffled that "Fly to the Angels" isn't part of the compilation. I'm also confused that the album is on a Capitol Records imprint, distributed through EMI. Yes, Slaughter was on Capitol Records back in the day, but of course this isn't the case now. I assume this was some sort of contract fulfilment deal.
This affordable best-of package was released October 17, 2006.
Expect reviews of Influence and Metal Mania Stripped Volume 3 in the days ahead.
