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.
