50 Words for Snow
Yes, Kate Bush has returned after over seven years with an amazing ground-breaking album. I rate it up there with Blue from Joni Mitchell for deep thoughts and sonic retrospection.

A Very Gaga Holiday
With only four cuts, this ‚Äėsurprise release‚Äô including two cuts from the recently-aired Thanksgiving special, Lady Gaga shows off her New York state of mind and jazz vocal chops. Consider this release an early holiday gift and it tastes just like that first candy cane of the season.
Best Cut: "White Christmas" (with new verse)
Location: Ice skating in Union Square.

Home for the Holidays
Okay, okay, so this album is already over SIX YEARS OLD! And that‚Äôs the reason for this review. Get on it boys! We need a new holiday collection from you and it‚Äôs already too late for this holiday season. This one will tide us over just one more year, so start those bake sales and get thee into the Castro Theater for a new 2012 release!
Best Cut: ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs No Place Like Home for the Holidays‚ÄĚ
X-Factor winner and another in a line of great gay male tenors who look hot in sweaters, this CD is a little fluffy but do we really care? I think this CD might well warm up a few boys better than a hot toddy.
Best Cut: ‚ÄúMary‚Äôs Boy Child‚ÄĚ
Location: Shopping in Ingenious on Castro.
