Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the thrash metal legends' fourth album, originally from 1988.

Last Building Burning, the latest release from Cloud Nothings, is an eight-song album that clocks in at just over a half hour, succinctly capturing their feverish, guitar-heavy live sound.
Disturbed - Evolution
Evolution is the seventh full-length album from hard rockers Disturbed, which makes good on its title: unwaveringly clinging to the uncompromising spirit that solidified their reputation, while boldly progressing at the same time.
Empress Of - Us
Us, the new album by Lorely Rodriguez, aka Empress Of, showcases her skill both as a lyricist and as a producer. Her deeply personal 2015 debut, Me, was so personal that she found it difficult to perform live, so decided to facilitate a more equal exchange of energy between herself and listeners for its follow-up.
John Grant - Love Is Magic
Love Is Magic is the fourth solo album from unique songwriting talent John Grant, the most electronic album yet from the Michigan-born musician.

Elle King - Shake The Spirit
Shake The Spirit is the second studio album from alternative blues-rock artist Elle King, documenting an emotionally challenging but artistically productive period of her life. She says that putting out this record "is like shaking myself awake."
Yoko Ono - Warzone
Yoko Ono's Warzone is a strikingly different record from any she has previously made. Revisiting and re-imagining 13 songs about warfare from her past work spanning 1970-2009, the lyrics and messages are still pertinent in 2018.
Doe Paoro - Soft Power
On her third album Soft Power, LA-based singer/songwriter Doe Paoro digs into her own frustration and anguish, ultimately coming away with a newfound strength that's profoundly inspiring.
