In Stores Now And Coming Soon: New Albums By Korn, The Osbournes, AZ, David Bowie & More

You don’t need to hear it from a Korn Korrospondent (whatever happened to them, by the way?) to know that the band is “Here to Stay.” Their latest album, Untouchables, is this week’s big new release.

Nipping at Korn’s heels are those lovable Osbournes, whose Family Album compilation includes a few oldies and some new goodies — Kelly’s rendition of “Papa Don’t Preach” and Pat Boone’s TV-theme version of “Crazy Train” among them.

Former Tony! Toni! Toné! crooner Raphael Saadiq releases Instant Vintage, featuring D’Angelo, Angie Stone, and TLC’s T-Boz, while They Might Be Giants fans say Yes to the band’s latest effort, No!.

With renewed vision and a new label to express it on, David Bowie serves up Heathen, his latest offering, which features guest spots from Dave Grohl and the Who’s Pete Townshend.

Wanna see where all the beef began? Check out The Difference, the compilation featuring KRS-One’s first dis track to Nelly (“Clear ‘Em Out”) as it hits shelves as well.

And some tribute albums — to Disturbed and System of a Down — may be cool, but it seems like just about anyone can get this type of recognition these days. What’s next, a tribute to Sum41? Oh, wait …
