While in Chicago this weekend I stopped at my local Best Buy
and picked up a few essentials. On the music front, I opted for the brand new Blake Lewis
album, Heartbreak On Vinyl
as well as the new Madonna
2-disc compilation, Celebration
. I am wishing I had purchased the recent Kylie
remix compilation, Boombox
, but perhaps next time. The Madonna disc was $22.00! Yikes! Blake Lewis was on sale for $7.99. Not too shabby.
I am impressed with Blake's album so far. Since he left Arista and joined forces with Tommy Boy
, he released first single Sad Song
and the rest of the album falls in line with that dance/pop style that I love so much right now. I honestly think that Tommy Boy is the right home for Blake at the moment. The album features solid production from the likes of S*A*M & Sluggo
, Carl Ryden
, Rodney Jerkins
, Dave Audé
, Blake himself and others. I've always loved Blake so I hope he at least has some success on the dance charts with this album.

This purchase was a bit impulsive, especially considering I already have most of the other songs on CD. I was going to buy the single disc version Madonna's final album for Warner Brothers
but it didn't contain "Revolver," the Lil' Wayne
track. All in all, I'm happy that I bought the disc. I still want to get the DVD with all of the videos. I will have to save that for another day and another dollar (or $20).
