Has it really been 20 years? Apparently so, because Sean “Diddy” Combs, a.k.a. Puff Daddy, and Bad Boy Entertainment have released a five-disc, 80-track compilation to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bad Boy. As Combs said in a press release for the set, "Bad Boy helped make hip hop what it is today - and this collection highlights all the music, history and vision that made Bad Boy number 1. We wanted to thank our fans, celebrate the music, the people, and the Bad Boy lifestyle that have defined the past two decades. We've always made music that makes the people dance; this collection does all that and more, and it is a celebration of all things Bad Boy."

Rhino has made it a point to reissue classic albums on 180-gram vinyl on a regular basis. This is the latest to get that treatment. You're welcome.

Say, have you heard about this new Monkees album? Or has that joke gotten old at this point? Well, even if it is, we’re not going to stop telling it, because it’s served us pretty well thus far: it’s the highest charting album by the group since 1968’s The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees, and it’s gotten some of the best reviews of their 50-year history.

Black Sabbath is currently in the midst of their farewell tour, and if you’re a fan of the band and were already well aware of this sad fact, then we’re sorry for putting it first and foremost in your mind again, but there’s a reason for us having done so: as a way of paying tribute to these heavy metal legends, we’re reissuing the band’s first eight studio albums.

Last year was the 30th anniversary of the Sisters of Mercy’s 1985 album FIRST AND LAST AND ALWAYS, an occasion which led not only to a vinyl set highlighting that LP but also a similar set highlighting their 1987 album FLOODLAND. This year, the Sisterly love continues with the next album in line: 1990’s VISION THING.

Recorded in Denmark, VISION THING wasn’t an Andrew Eldritch solo project, but it definitely reconfirmed that Eldritch was the man with the Sisters’ plan, as it effectively found him starting from scratch with a brand new band: guitarists Andreas Bruhn and Tim Bricheno and bassist Tony James, late of Generation X and Sigue Sigue Sputnik. The sound might be slightly different, but with Eldritch’s voice, there’s no question that you’re still listening to the Sisters of Mercy, as is borne out on tracks like “More,” “Doctor Jeep,” and the title track.
