This Week's Interesting Music Releases - November 23, 2010

Kanye West's new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is in stores this week, and is easily the highlight of the new music releases.

Other new music out this week that I can strongly recommend includes Giant Sand's Blurry Blue Mountain, Girls' Broken Dreams Club EP, Hafdis Huld's Synchronized Swimmers, and Regina Spektor's Live In London.

Allen Ginsberg's Beat Poet Figurine & CD Set is tempting, who doesn't need an action figure of the famous Beat poet?

The National: High Violet (Expanded Edition) adds an eight-track bonus CD to one of the year's finest albums. Other reissues this week include the remastered vinyl box sets The Rolling Stones 1964-1969 and Rolling Stones: The Rolling Stones 1971-2005 (13 and 14-discs, respectively), The Who: Live at Leeds (Super Deluxe Edition), and the remastered Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine.
