Posted By on Fri, Aug 20, 2010 at 10:10 AM

Each Friday, we review 10 recently released CDs in 10 words each:

Albert Castiglia Keepin’ On — Former Junior Wells guitarist keeps the blues train running strong.

Lost in the Trees All Alone in an Empty House — Chapel Hill collective offers folk-driven music with strong songwriting. (Band was set to open the now-canceled Neko Case show at Knight Theatre.)

Angels of Babylon Kingdom of Evil — Manowar drummer, Megadeth bassist team up for newest “metal supergroup.”

Robert Cray Band Cookin’ In Mobile — Five-time Grammy winner releases first live CD/DVD album.

Peter Salett Addicted to Distraction — Mild vocals and mellow rock reminded me of James Taylor.

Katie Melua The House — Vocally driven pop album leans closer to Tori Amos style.

Missouri Mile That’s What I Do — Missouri sisters release seven mediocre songs of generic new country.

American Hi Fi Fight the Frequency — Band breaks off from Miley Cyrus to release fourth album.

The Last Felony Too Many Humans — Cookie monster vocals dominate repetitive guitar riffs for bad combination.

Peter Block Peter Block — Pop-rock style reminds me of They Might Be Giants.
