The leaves fall, the temperature drops and the record stores unleash a stampede of albums to local record stores. You can count on all three year after year. This year's new releases prove as diverse as ever and should satisfy one and all. If you haven't already one or twenty, here are some recommendations.

The pop/rock aisles are rich with some of the most popular bands going. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers lead the list and should surpass last year's Hard Promises sales with the new Long After Dark album. From the sound of the few singles it may be Petty's best project to date.
