BUSH | Everything Always Now | February | I'm sure you figured out that this record would be horrific as soon as you saw the word "Bush," but I've got some disturbing news: it's going to be even worse than you thought. It's to be helmed by artistic war criminal Bob Rock, notorious producer of shit — the least horrible thing he ever worked on was Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend," if that gives you any idea. I can't see how Bush will get Rock's full attention, either, since he'll also be producing records for 311, Mötley Crüe, and the Offspring in '11 — this guy's the music-industry equivalent of a lawyer who defends only rapists.

DR. DRE | Detox | February | The Chinese Democracy of hip-hop: to avoid the pressure of following up his classics, Dre has kept stalling and stalling until he can be absolutely sure nobody gives a shit anymore. This time, the disc is allegedly mastered and finalized, and the check's in the mail and everything — but it hasn't leaked online yet, so believe it when you see it.
