This Week's Interesting Music Releases - November 22nd, 2011

The last big music release week of the year brings several albums I can wholeheartedly recommend, including Kate Bush's 50 Words for Snow, Calexico's Road Atlas 1998-2011,
Rhett Miller's The Interpreter, Live at Largo, and Wooden Wand's Briarwood.

Also out this week are The Muppets soundtrack and Magazine's No Thyself, the band's first album of new material in 30 years.

Three box sets from Rush span the band's studio recording history. Sector 1, Sector 2, and Sector 3 each contain remastered albums on five CDs each along with a DVD of bonus material.

The Rolling Stones' Some Girls has been remastered and includes a CD of bonus tracks, and is available in a plethora of special packages.

What new releases are you picking up this week? What can you recommend? Have I left anything noteworthy off the list?
