Here you can find a list of many of the new ska albums added to the station's playlist. Sorry there is not a full review accompanying each listing but I do not have the time, I am lucky to just keep this list updated. Also, instead of picking apart someone's album song by song, I recommend just checking it out samples on Amazon or Itunes or put in a request.
