Three divas lead off this week's FOXLight music release roundup, and it doesn't get any bigger than them.
Mariah Carey drops her much-delayed Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
Madonna finishes her career-long Warner Bros. contract with the 36 track double-disc best of Celebration.
And arguably the Queen Diva, Barbra Streisand releases her first straight-up Jazz album, produced by Diana Krall, Love Is The Answer.
Brand New Eyes marks the return of Paramore, with diva-in-training Hayley Williams.
Revolution is the latest from Country diva, Miranda Lambert.
Alice In Chains brings in new vocalist William DuVall and guest Elton John for their first since 1995, Black Gives Way To Blue.
And, new Rock is represented loudly by AFI with Crash Love; and Breaking Benjamin with Dear Agony.
Also out this week...
New music from Classic Rock stalwarts: Foreigner adds new singer Kelly Hansen for the Wal-Mart exclusive Can't Slow Down, a disc of new music, a disc of remixed greatest hits, and a DVD of live performances plus a behind-the-scenes documentary.
