The pickings are slim but there are a few titles that might be worth your time...

New Album Releases 12-08-2009: Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Neil Young, Glee Vol. 2

We once again have our list this week and it once again came to me late.  I apologize for that.  In addition to coming to me late, it came to me during a stretch when I have barely had enough time to do anything.  It's not a story worth telling.  There is just an abundance of stress in my life at the moment.  It will pass.  Until it does, well, I'm behind.  Enough about me.  Let's look at the New Releases.

The bad news for me is I find myself broke this week.  The good news?  That's actually not what I'm stressed about because there's really nothing on this list that's getting it done for me.  We have the return of Chris Brown after his highly publicized arrest for abusing then-girlfriend Rihanna.  Hip hop fans might find something worthwhile in the Snoop Dogg record or the new release from Timbaland.  Jared Leto fans will want to check out the new 30 Seconds to Mars CD.  Gleeks of the universe are going to be all over the second soundtrack volume to the hit TV show Glee.

We also have some inside information and reviews of a couple albums coming out this week.  Gene "Malice" Thornton was interviewed by BC's Clayton Perry about Clipse's new album, Til The Casket Drops.  The latest archival release from Neil Young has been given the once over by Donald Gibson.  With that, here are your new releases:
