About Austin KruegerAustin works as a cost analyst for TDS Telecom in the Government and Regulatory Affairs team. He has a marketing degree from UW-Whitewater and has worked in various departments including marketing, sales and network services since joining TDS in 2004. He is a huge sports fan – if he’s not at work, odds are you can find him at Miller Park, Lambeau Field, Camp Randall or the Kohl Center watching the game. In his spare time, he’s chairman of a local non-profit, avid music fan, rec sports MVP and an early adopter when it comes to most new technologies.
Having been a fan of these guys for a while, it was a treat when a loyal reader requested a review this week. In the meantime, pick up Toulouse Street today for the criminally low price of $4.99. Toss it on in the car and you’ll be guaranteed to be rockin’ down the highway.
Today’s artist may be the most identifiable with a type and style of all time—and that’s saying something. Bob Marley's "Exodus" has been named the best album of the 20th century by Time magazine. VH1 called it the 26th greatest album of all time and Rolling Stone had it #169 on their 500 best of all time. Very serious praise for an album you can get today for $5.
Finishing out the American Idol/Cheap Tunes Tuesday trifecta, today’s featured album is Teenage Dream. It debuted number one on the Billboard 200 and sold nearly 200k copies its first week. To date, it’s at roughly 8 million sold worldwide and was nominated for seven Grammy Award nominations.
Sticking to last week’s theme, today’s artist is also a judge on the newly rebooted American Idol. This album—his fourth major release—opened at number one on the Billboard 200 and the top country charts. It broke a million in sales in just a month and became the third best-selling album of the year and is Bryan’s highest-selling album to date. Whether you're already a fan or he's new to you, you'll score a great deal that won't crash your party.
Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan have formed the judging panel of the rebooted American Idol which kicked off a couple days ago on ABC. While never completely fading out, Lionel has seemingly always found a way to stay in the fringe of Hollywood, and with this comeback, he's returned to front and center. Can't Slow Down is a nice throwback to an industry icon, and it’s only $4.99.
Without question The Jimi Hendrix Experience left their mark on the music world and influenced thousands of bands with their short, but amazing tenure. Electric Ladyland is a steal for $5 bucks today, and hopefully reminds you of one of the greatest acts to ever hit the studio.
Perhaps realizing the potentially polarizing nature of their sound, Metallica began to reinvent their music, experimenting a bit with other elements like southern rock, blues and country. It certainly alienated some of the band’s loyalists, but brought in a whole new audience not only to the new stuff, but the old as well. With Metallica touring later this year, it's a good chance to take a listen and cure your Tuesday blues.
It’s rare that critics can universally agree on an album being five stars across the board. This is one of those uncommon instances. Hundreds of bands have covered Paranoid over the last five decades and the tributes aren’t likely to end. The band broke up, reunited and officially called it quits last year. While there may not be any new Black Sabbath on the horizon, being able to pick this up for $5 bucks is an outstanding consolation.
This album stayed on the Billboard 200 for more than a year, and became the second-highest selling female album in history. Not too shabby for a relative unknown and a record they were hoping would break even. Today you can score this chart-topper for $5.
While Creed's sophomore effort sold more copies, this album received a very positive critical response. My Own Prison blew up when it was released, and it's easy to see why. This one feels like a rock album made in a garage somewhere, and the rawness gives it the charm. It's a solid get today for $6 bucks,
