Todd Rundgren brings MTV to the PC in The Individualist, his latest album. Using the extra memory available in the new Enhanced CD format, Rundgren has filled The Individualist with stunning montages set to 10 new Rundgren songs. For example, in the cut "Family Values," a swirling kaleidoscope of images—from quaint postcards to crayon stick figures—surrounds a '50s-era family. At the end, the family confronts a disturbingly distorted vision of itself. The album also can be played on an audio CD player (you get the sound but not the graphics) and is priced like most audio CDs, making it a bargain for a state-of-the-art multimedia experience. (Enhanced CD for PC and Mac, TR-i, $16.98)
