Out Today: Beasties Bite Back, Stevie Nicks Gets Witchier

What's the best way to celebrate the elimination of Osama Bin Laden? Listening to the Foo Fighters' latest album Wasting Light for the fourth week straight, of course. Send help, or at least the announcement of a late-summer or early fall tour date. Come on, man, just one hit.

This week's new releases are a solid bunch, with the Beastie Boys' long-awaited return following MCA's cancer scare, and Fleet Foxes leading the Mayday charge with Helplessness Blues. Also on the list this week you will find the return of Donny and Marie Osmond, Fleetwood Mac earth mother Stevie Nicks, the inexplicably continuing musical career of one Jennifer Lopez, and the reissue of one of the best anarcho-punk records of all time.
