I will also give each album a two-listen verdict, for those looking to purchase. Remember, I listen twice because I'm nice! This week we're giving away Asher Roth's debut "Asleep In The Bread Aisle,"Pet Shop Boys' "Yes," and Depeche Mode's "Sounds of the Universe."

If you are interested in winning these 3 releases, leave your name in the comments! It just dawned on me that I didn't put a closing date! Entries will be accepted until Friday, April 24th at NOON PST.

Asher Roth, Asleep In The Bread Aisle
Two-Listen Verdict: "Asleep In The Bread Aisle," is not a horrible album, but the sometimes witty Asher Roth and the sporadic good lines can't save this bland, boring album. 5.2/10


Pet Shop Boys, Yes
Two-Listen Verdict: It's been a while since PSB have released an album that has been so modern, classic, and downright danceable. Just so you know, this deserves for than just two listens. 7.7/10


Depeche Mode, Sounds Of The Universe
Two-Listen Verdict: It happened. Depeche Mode have released two back to back albums that shoves everyone's "washed-up" remarks back into their despicable faces. It's tremblingly dark and starkly original. 7/10
