The Killers, Sam's Town On their ambitious second album, the Killers venture into the arena-rock realm of Bruce Springsteen. The awesome, anthemic "When You Were Young" is a direct homage to "Born to Run."

Vince Gill, These Days On a remarkable four-disc set of new material, Gill stretches out from country and bluegrass to rock, pop, jazz and gospel with some help from Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall, Bonnie Raitt and, natch, wife Amy Grant.

John Legend, Once Again Reaffirming that he is no ordinary performer, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and pianist continues to lovingly update old-school soul for the hip-hop generation.

Scissor Sisters, Tah-dah The Scissor Sisters put their boogie shoes back on for their second CD, which, with groovy tunes like "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'," is as delightful as its title.
