Out now: The Killers, Guns N' Roses, Death Cab and more

The Killers - "Day & Age" - The Las Vegas quartet returns with their third LP, arguably their strongest yet. Click here for a full review.

Guns N' Roses - "Chinese Democracy" - Available exclusively at Best Buy, "Chinese Democracy," in the works for 14 years, is the first Guns N' Roses album since 1993's "The Spaghetti Incident." Better late than never, right?

Kanye West - "808s & Heartbreak" - West's fourth LP marks a new direction, relying heavily on a drum machine and material fueled by the death of his mother and his separation from his fiancee.

Death Cab for Cutie- "Something About Airplanes" (10th anniversary deluxe edition) - The Washington indie rock act's debut album from 1998 is reissued with redesigned artwork, liner notes and a seven track bonus disc featuring the band's first Seattle performance at the Crocodile Cafe in February 1998.

Local artists:

King Sparrow - "Derailer" - These guys are brand new to the scene, rock hard and are deserving of your attention. If you don't believe me, read my interview with them and listen to the tracks from their newly-pressed debut EP, "Derailer." Then hit them up to purchase a copy, or better yet, get one at their next show on December 4 at Bottom Lounge.

The Code Kids - "We Sell It Back to You When You Beg" - Are you a fan of high-energy, stripped down rock 'n' roll? Of course you are, so I know you'll want to check out locals The Code Kids and their newly released three-song EP.
