Featured New Releases on Music Unlimited:

J. Cole – Cole World: The Sideline Story
Some incredible buzz has been building around J. Cole after signing to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. He’s since graduated from college, put out several hit mixtapes and toured alongside Rihanna and Jay-Z himself. His steady stream of new music and videos has led to this long awaited debut, including 12 tracks he produced himself. Get ready, because now that J. Cole is off the bench, there’s no stopping him.

    If you like: Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Young Jeezy
    Recommended Track: “Mr. Nice Watch (ft. Jay-Z)”

Wilco – The Whole Love
It’s been a good couple of years for Wilco. Create a new music festival? Check. New record label? Check. Sponsor a little league team, create a custom Wilco bike? Check and Check. They even managed to make another great record. Not a bad list of accomplishments for a band on the backend of their second decade blurring the lines between Country, Folk and Alternative Rock.

    If you like: Ryan Adams, Yo La Tengo, Spoon
    Recommended Track: “Capitol City”

Blink 182 – Neighborhoods
While a band reunion is not a novel concept, the circumstance that brought about the return of Blink 182 were the results of tragedy. After an acrimonious split lead to a series of different projects, (Angels and Airwaves for Tom DeLonge, +44 for Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker), a 2008 plane crash that killed four people and left Barker with third degree burns over half his body was the catalyst for reconciliation. A tour in 2009 was a major celebration for fans, but it would be another two years before new material would appear as Neighborhoods. “Up All Night” is a blistering attack of heavy percussion and guitar feedback that might catch long-time fans off-guard at first, but a signature pop-laded chorus along with the lead vocal volley between DeLonge and Hoppus is as familiar as ever.

    If you like: Taking Back Sunday, My Chemical Romance, Green Day
    Recommended Track: “After Midnight”

I noticed Evangelion is no longer on the Canadian store. Any idea if it will ever come back? I already bought 11 episodes of it and would have liked to buy the rest of the series.

I have some feedback regarding the new video store preview that I downloaded this past Tuesday.

I enjoy the layout and everything except that I’d strongly recommend that you change the font size. I’m playing my video games and renting movies from the video store on a 55″ LED TV and it’s barely readable. I have to literally walk closer to my tv to try and make out the words, pricing, and soforth. (My eye sight is perfect) I never had that problem with the standard video store that’s available to everyone now. I was always able to read everything crystal clear.

So before it launches, that’s the only recommendation that I would make, would be to make the font larger, it’s tough to read.

All in all, great job, really enjoyed the preview. =)

I like the new video store, but I still don’t want to rent any movies on there. If you guys could bring the price down to 2.99 per rental or so for HD, I feel that would be fair, since we’re not getting any of the extras we could get by renting a blu-ray disc somewhere. I would rent SOOOOO much more if this was the price.

Really love the new Video store layout, it’s alot easier on the eyes i find.

Will the new video preview be replacing the current video store once it rolls out to the public?

This seems like the best place to ask, so are there any plans to expand the video store app to the game store? More specifically, as a way to view and organize owned games/DLC/the like? Right now the interface for going through purchased content is a real hassle, and it seems like this new app would be a great for that purpose.

I was ready to drop Netflix when I first launched the new video store app.. but then realized it was still $2-5 per episode and not a streaming service. When will you guys offer a comparable video service? I refuse to pay those exorbitant purchase prices.

What happened to Breaking Bad? I just bought the latest available video, episode 10. Episode 12, the season finale, just aired tonight. I see that Episode 11 is available on itunes and Amazon Unbox but not PSN. What gives?
