David Bowie (Pictured)
Never has an new album from a sexagenarian been so anticipated. That it's his best in nearly half his years makes Bowie's one of the great comebacks ever.

Their debut album, Woman, deeply affects anyone who's heard it, reviving actual, word-of-mouth buzz.

Nine Inch Nails
Reznor announced this reunion one week before the release of the How to Destroy Angels album. Self-sabotage? Who cares. NIN is back!

Devendra Banhart
Looks like cutting all that hair off seems to have given Devendra a Samson complex because someone's music isn't quite as powerful these days.

Rob Zombie
The successful director still clings to his music for some reason. Calling his new album Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor ought to be the nail in that coffin... which doubles as his bed, apparently.
