As you might be able to gather from the episode title and a discussion at the beginning of last week’s episode, a certain someone is back on the show this week, and as always, is firing on all cylinders…however few he may have. Fear not, though, as Nick and Brian are still here to try to reign him in and keep things as normal as possible. Love or hate him, you should stick around for the new music that goes along with our five album reviews, as well as our rundown of a few first impressions.
