America's favorite hot mess returns to lead off this week's FOXLight music release roundup. Courtney Love reboots Hole for Nobody's Daughter, a loud set of tracks about "greed, vengeance, and feminism".
Newly single Melissa Etheridge drops album number ten, Fearless Love, a return to rock for the raspy-voiced songstress.

Loud and proud new rock arrives from Alpha Rev, who team up with Strokes and Paul McCartney producer David Kahne for New Morning...and Drowning Pool regroup for a new self-titled set.
And a couple from the old-school...Peter Frampton returns with his first new music in a while, Thank You, Mr. Churchill...and Last Alaska Moon is the latest from folk-rocker Livingston Taylor, brother of James.
On the reissue front...The Essential Carole King takes a disc of self-performed greatest hits and backs it with a second disc of equally great hits written by King, but performed by other artists, like The Monkees, Aretha Franklin, and Gene Pitney...1983's Katrina and the Waves and 1984's Katrina and the Waves 2, both Canada-only releases, go worldwide with bonus tracks...This Is Big Audio Dynamite: Legacy Edition adds a disc of dubs and remixes to B.A.D.'s 1985 debut, remastered on Disc 1.
And vinyl fetishists can bust out their Discwasher brush and aim their Zerostats at three new, old favorites, each on 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl: Eric Clapton's Money and Cigarettes; Alice Cooper's Billion Dollar Babies; and Cheap Trick's Cheap Trick at Budokan.
