The Big News
I know, sale-wise the new Katy Perry record is a much bigger deal than anything else coming out this week, but since I really have no interest at all in ever hearing that record, I figured I’d start with something that is actually important, the new, and final, Chuck Berry release, Chuck. Berry ied earlier this year, and look, it’s like the David Bowie and Leonard Cohen releases of last year, you ain’t gonna find a negative review of this record so I’m just gonna let it speak for itself.
