Ray Davies has a five song EP Thanksgiving Day, in anticipation of his first solo album coming in February.

Enya’s first album in five years is Amarantine, and it’s currently #3 at Amazon.

Billy Joel’s new My Lives is a box set of rarities, plus a DVD. Particularly, it includes a bunch of material from early bands he was in before he hit.

Try! John Mayer Trio Live in Concert actually features a lot of brand new songs rather than being a rehash best-of. It also is said to be considerably more serious driven, guitar playing music, reflecting a lot of jamming time with Buddy Guy, BB King, Herbie Hancock and other such folk. Sounds like the singer-songwriter is butching up a bit.

Their crappy A Bigger Bang album from a few weeks ago already long forgotten, the Stones have unleashed another album, Rarities 1971-2003. Looks like another stupid cash in for idiots who’ll buy absolutely any worthless thing with the words “Rolling Stones” on the cover. There don’t seem to be more than a couple of actual unreleased songs, just more crappy live re-hashes of the hits.

Creed singer Scott Stapp has a solo album out now, The Great Divide.
