Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. UNKLE, Never, Never Land (James Lavelle returns with a follow-up LP that may be just as good as the last one. A hypnotic, ambient ride through dark ‘n’ dirty beats and Brit-pop vocals.)

2. Gwen Stefani, Love, Angel, Music, Baby (A total guilty pleasure, but a nice one. The No Doubt singer collaborates with Dr. Dre, Eve, The Neptunes, and more for a sugar-pop solo debut that is silly but still catchy.)

3. Willie Nelson, It Always Will Be (With a career that is as much about duets as anything else, this is a wonderful back-to-basics recording from a country legend.)

4. Pearl Jam, Rearviewmirror (A double-disc greates hits collection from some of the pioneers of grunge. It proves that this band has more maturity and weight than many of its Seattle peers.)

5. Seal, Best: 1994-2004 (A fine assembly of original hits and fun covers from the UK soul-pop singer-songwriter. He’s underrated and overlooked, and here’s a great example of why.)
