August (and Not A Lot After?)

So these are the releases I'm excited about/interested in for August. As always, get at me with what I might have overlooked.
1Arcade Fire
The Suburbs


Still haven't gotten around to listening to these guys (I've been meaning to check out Funeral for months). This seems to be getting mostly (a-cough) rave reviews.
2Queens of the Stone Age
Rated R


Almost picked this one up a month back. Thanks to the re-release, I'm glad I didn't.
3Iron Maiden
The Final Frontier


Those samples are pretty sick. I'm pretty shocked by how consistently strong these guys' comeback has been.
4 Mogwai
Burning/Special Moves


Never heard these guys live.
5 David Gray
Foundling


Pretty great singer-songwriter. I'm surprised he's got another new one so soon.
6Blind Guardian
At the Edge of Time


Sometimes you just need to sit back and let Hansi's crazy-high voice and the double-bass work their magic. Wizardry indeed.
7 Ra Ra Riot
The Orchard


Haven't seen this getting a lot of buzz, which is good and bad. If it's as strong as the Rhumb Line, though, it shouldn't disappoint.
8 10 Years
Feeding the Wolves


One of the best "radio rock" bands out there, and I'm not just saying that because I'm a sucker for singers in the cult of Maynard. (Okay, maybe a little.)
9Brandon Boyd
The Wild Trapeze


I've got my fingers crossed for this being good.
10 Brian Wilson
Brian Wilson Reimagines Gerswhin


Just recently heard about this. It sounds fascinating (and also almost *too* ambitious; I suppose we'll see).
11 Disturbed
Asylum


Always good for a laugh.
12 Revis
Fire and Ice


Originally supposed to come out in July, but got bumped back. Last I heard it was August, but I'm not sure. I hope it comes out soon, though, since the second I heard these guys had reunited I got extremely excited. Like, too excited for broadcast channels. Which brings me to...
13 Lost
Season 6


I'll admit that this season was a little spotty, but I'm in the camp that absolutely loved the finale. I appreciate the greater arc of the series, and though I can understand the complaints and objections hurled against it, I can also find the merit even in its missteps. Because I've been brainwashed.
