After an August where we had a lack of strong album releases (especially late in the month), September seems to be full of new albums. On the downside, I don’t see anything I’m particularly excited about.

This list has selected single and album releases for the month, not all of them (i.e. releases from groups that I’m interested in tracking). My apologies if I missed a significant release  – please mention the artist and title in a comment and I’ll update the list.

More complete listings are available on merchant websites (I use CD Japan’s list).
