Kick off your week with a dose of rock and roll via the following free Album Previews, currently oozing from the blogosphere directly into your eardrums…

Tom Waits - Bad As Me (Released October 24th)

Back in August, Tom Waits invited us all to a goofy 'private listening party,' during which he spun his new LP, 'Bad As Me.' If you was unable to locate the rusty pair of wheels where the party ultimately went down (your loss), you can now listen to the record in full by heading here and 'requesting an invite'.

Noel Gallagher - High Flying Birds (Released October 17th)

Noel Gallagher takes on brother Liam's humiliating post-Oasis effort, Beady Eye, with his new solo (but might as well be Oasis) LP, 'High Flying Birds.' Stream it in full over at SoundCloud.
