Cheap Tunes Tuesday

Invisible Touch is simply masterful. From top to bottom, the album runs through up-tempo standard pop, to thoughtful, introspective ballads. Out of eight tracks, six of them were successful singles and very popular radio staples to this day. This one today for $5 bucks is a steal.

Alter Bridge

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

Alter Bridge released their debut album "One Day Remains" in August of 2004. If you’re a fan of Creed’s earlier work, before they got a bit more into the pop genre, you’ll enjoy this too.
