It's like the attack of the classic rockers in this week's FOXLight Music Release roundup, with lotsa new music from vintage acts.

Mark Knopfler, still resoundingly NOT in Dire Straits, returns with solo album number 5, Get Lucky.

Endgame is the latest crack of heavy metal thunder from Megadeth.

Former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley drops a sonic boom of his own, Anomaly.

Bruce Hornsby returns to more pop-oriented fare with Levitate, an album he says is his first "with no piano solos."

The more current side of rock is represented by the latest from Muse titled The Resistance; and The Incident, a double disc effort from Porcupine Tree.

Actress Scarlett Johansson joins with singer-songwriter Pete Yorn for Break Up, an album of duets recorded in 2006.

Also out this week...

Kid Cudi's debut is titled Man On The Moon: The End Of The Day, co-produced by his mentor (and huge fan of Taylor Swift's videos), Kanye West.

Happy Hour marks the return of Kid Rock disciple Uncle Kracker, and joining him is a diverse roster including Kenny Chesney, Boyz II Men, and 70's soft rock falsetto Leo Sayer.

Singer-songwriter Mason Jennings drops the introspective Blood of a Man.

Chair In The Doorway is the first new music in five years from Living Colour.

Mi Plan is the first all-Spanish language effort from Nelly Furtado.

Blues legend John Mayall drops his 57th album, Tough.

And the big catalog release this week is the long-awaited boxed set from cult power-poppers Big Star titled Keep An Eye On The Sky, a colossal 98 tracks on 4 CDs, many of which are previously unreleased, and all of which should serve as an appropriate introduction and coda to the music of Chris Bell and Alex Chilton.
