New Releases This Week: Tori Amos, Bon Jovi, Spandau Ballet

Those of you that are still putting your pocketbooks back together after picking up last week's new releases, will probably be a tad dismayed to learn that there is a whole new batch of new releases again this week.  This week's releases include a new holiday album from Tori Amos, yet another new album from Bon Jovi, and a righteously awesome box set from AC/DC, maaaaan.

For Clevelanders and fans of pop culture in general, the newly released soundtrack for A Christmas Story, unavailable prior to now, is a wonderful holiday gift!

    Queen continues to hold its place alongside Elvis Costello, Jethro Tull, Elton John and many others as kings of repackaging. Is it ever safe to buy another CD?

    Yes – as long as it's not Queen. Everything else should be safe. Although, I think it's about time for another Aerosmith hits compilation!
