Shearwater, Journey Back with New Albums

Shearwater returns with <em>Rook</em>.
Shearwater returns with Rook.

Esquire music critic Andy Langer surveys the week's new CD releases, including new records from Journey, Shearwater, Dr. John, and Weezer.

Journey's new album Revelation, available exclusively at Wal-Mart, also features yet another new lead singer: Arnel Pineda.

Weezer's third self-titled album, known by fans as "the red album," sees the band push into newer territory while also maintaining their well-known power-pop sound.

Austin, Texas' Shearwater also returns with the slow-burning and charming pop of Rook.

Big Easy legend Dr. John and his band The Lower 911 releases The City That Care Forgot, an album of New Orleans-style funk and blues.
