To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

New CD Album Releases, 4-13-2010: Tom Lehrer, Jeff Beck, Natalie Merchant
Not much big and new this week, but let's just take a minute to dig on the genius of The Tom Lehrer Collection. This collection features 26 cuts, largely recorded in the 1960s. This has pretty much all the obvious cuts. By his count, for being such a well known name over many years, he only published 37 songs.

Best of all, this comes with a bonus DVD including live 1967 performances in Oslo of, among other classics, "The Masochism Tango" and my personal springtime anthem "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park." Sweet.

"If, after hearing my songs, just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend, or perhaps to strike a loved one, it will all have been worth the while." - Tom Lehrer

Emotion & Commotion is the first new album from Jeff Beck in seven years. I wouldn't think of Beck as a big time commercial artist, but I note that he is as high as #4 currently at Amazon.

The #1 seller at Amazon at the moment is Leave Your Sleep from Natalie Merchant. This two CD set is based on musical adaptations of 19th and 20th century British and American poetry. What I'm hearing sounds pretty listenable, though I'm not sure how memorable any of it will prove to be. It has just a little bit of Renaissance fair flavor to it, but not to a stilted degree.
