On The Shelves: US Album Releases, October 30, 2012 - Neil Young, Black Country Communion, Toby Keith, Meek Mill, Rod Stewart, Katherine Jenkins

It's going to be a tough fight to knock Taylor Swift from the top of this week's chart and looking at this week's major contenders, it seems unlikely that any of them have the commercial punch to do it. As major labels hold some of their big releases back for the Christmas rush, others will be kept back until 2013, so they don't get swamped by a barrage of festive compilations and greatest hits releases.

Neil Young releases his 35th studio album this week. Psychedelic Pill was written and recorded in collaboration with his sometime band, Crazy Horse, marking their first album of original material since Greendale in 2003. As with many of Young's latter-day releases, the quality is less than consistent, though most reviews have erred in favour of the experienced rocker and Metacritic have given it a highly respectable collated score of 82.

Black Country Communion - the super-group featuring Joe Bonamassa, Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian release their third album, Afterglow, this week. There have been rumours bounding around that Black Country Communion were on the verge of splitting but, with an album to promote and, that doesn't seem likely just yet. The album's been well received in the world of rock, metal and blues publications; the lure of Bonamassa may well be enough to create some mainstream appeal for Afterglow, as well.

Led Zeppelin Reunion Not On The Cards: Jimmy Page Dispels Rumors


Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page Robert Plant Jason Bonham

The mooted Led Zeppelin reunion has been all but dismissed by Jimmy Page. The guitarist set the record straight at the film premier of Celebration Day, reports The Independent.

In the slightly awkward press-conference surrounding the press push for their upcoming gig-movie, the band refused to talk reunion, with Robert Plant deflecting any ill-received questions on the matter. But when it came to the film’s premiere, Jimmy Page just couldn’t keep quiet about it, and told reporters exactly where a reunion lay on the band’s priority list. "I think it's disappointing for people when the answer is no," Page said, well and truly quelling rumors. However, like all correspondence surrounding the reports of reunification, this was followed by a statement that will keep the flame running low: “That's what it is now," he said.

Celebration Day covers their 2007 reunion concert at London's 02 Arena. Jason Bonham, the son of the late John Bonham, played the one-time tribute concert to honor Atlantic records founder Ahmet Ertegun. "Once the idea was proposed, 'Would we do the concert?' It had to be Jason," Page said. "I think it's probably frustrating to the public when they see how good it is, and they go, 'why won't you do anymore?' They don't get it," Bonham explained. "But you know what, there's a time, and for me it's when John Bonham was in Led Zeppelin."
