I've been pretty busy lately and haven't had the time to listen to as much new music as I usually do. But today I had a day free of meetings and distractions, so I was able to get a lot of work done while catching up on a bunch of new albums. It's easy to do this with my Rhapsody subscription since I can stream any album I wish without having to buy it. I liked a lot of what I heard today, so I thought I'd build a playlist. Rhapsody also keeps a record of the songs you listen to, so it was easy to go back to all the new albums I heard today and create this playlist. I just picked a single track from each of the 10 albums I was able to stream. If you haven't heard them yet, I can highly recommend most.
What's your favorite new album?
