cherry-budsSprouting Seeds
Spring is here ~ we may not feel it yet, but we can see it.  We know that April showers will bring May flowers, so the rain doesn’t seem all that bad.  The cherry buds have appeared, and the trees are preparing to burst into bloom.  Soon we’ll be venturing outside again ~ a little at first, to test the air, then habitually, and finally regularly.  We’ve been amazed this year at the amount of music already scheduled for spring, with over 200 albums announced before the season’s very first day.  We’re only able to review a fraction of what we receive, so this page is our way to help our readers to preview as much upcoming music as possible, all in one place.  An amazing April to all ~ may your next favorite album be found right here!
