FRESH: T-Pain, The Offspring, Panic At The Disco

T-Pain - Silver and Gold
Here is the first single from T-Pains third studio album "Thr33 Ringz" It's no secret that T-Pain likes to 'sing' (for the lack of a better word) about drinks, so it comes as no surprise that this cut is about mixing silver and gold Patron to make a new beverage. It's typical T-Pain fare - so you'll either love it or hate it. Can't say this one does anything for me, still, it'll probably be a hit. Is this what today's industry has been reduced to?

Panic At The Disco - That Green Gentleman
That Green Gentleman (Things Have Changed)" is the third single from the second album by Panic at the Disco, Pretty. Odd. It's been two months since Panic At The Disco released their second album, Pretty.Odd., but many listeners still haven't got their heads around the band's transformation. Watching their heroes morph from emo trailblazers to Beatles-obsessed sixties revivalists was just too weird for some fans to take in. contains a swinging chorus, lashings of jaunty guitars and a call-to-arms outro that finds Brendon Urie offering one of his finest vocal performances to date. It may take a while for some people to catch on, but when they do they'll realise that Panic are actually making some of the most thrilling music of 2008.

The Offspring - Hammerhead
This year is fairly exciting for the band, especially since they’ve been out of the spotlight since I was just starting college five years ago. Not only did they stream their new album, Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace, on imeem, but they also released the video for the hard hitting new single, “Hammerhead.” To be honest, i still like thier "Conspiracy of One" days.

I'm really glad I am not the only one who feels that way about T-Pain.

Sure, he can synthesize voices all day long to mask the lack of vocal skills, but I miss natural talent sometimes.

Like you said, it will likely be a hit, though...
