PINK. Yes, Pink's gone 5.1 - who knew? I didn't until I bumped into her fresh DualDisc in the store. Hell, still doesn't know, crediting it with "enhanced stereo" only.

Talk about A road to nowhere ... I'm sitting in Sterling Sound, one of the foremost mastering studios in New York City (make that "the world"). And everywhere I look, I see a high-tech wonderland - except outside the huge window, where everyone can see the remnants of the High Line.

Iggy and the Stooges: Ready to Die

New release (Fat Possum; tour dates)

Ready to Die is billed as the 40th-anniversary follow-up to 1973’s Raw Power because it’s the first album since then to be credited specifically to Iggy and the Stooges, with James Williamson returning on guitar.

Or, to paraphrase another song: "To everything / Burn! Burn! Burn! / There is a season." Which is not to say that I recommend ignoring the heat in your grill or fireplace. What I mean is, with summer on the wane and fall on the way, there's still time to enjoy one season while getting ready for the next. And for each of these purposes, there is an iPod.

John Mayer: Paradise Valley

New release (Columbia; tour dates)

John Mayer takes another journey into the Americana he explored on last year’s Born and Raised. No wonder. Paradise Valley is named for an area not far from his home in Montana, a refuge that obviously gives him great peace, inspiring him to create music that’s closer to the land. And in further evidence that Mayer has turned a new leaf after the hiatus that was necessitated by his throat surgery and his sometimes out-of-control verbal and physical behavior, this new album is all about understatement.

I told you about fast-growing fields of new formats intended to replace the CD. You know the place: First there was Warner's MVI, for Music Video Interactive.
