>LET LOVE RULE

Pop blues singer Lenny Kravitz sets about making a name for himself—other than as Mr. Lisa Bonet—with an affecting album heavy on the social consciousness. (Virgin)

STEEL WHEELS Mick, Keith and the rest of the Rolling Stones crank it up one more time, with satisfyingly potent results. (Columbia)

SURPRISE You could go apoplectic trying to decide how much time to devote to the track "Think Too Hard," which is probably just what Syd Straw had in mind in this debut album full of pokes and teases. (Virgin)

I WONDER DO YOU THINK OF ME Recorded by Keith Whitley this spring, just before his death from effects of alcoholism, this melancholy country album becomes truly sorrowful in the light of events. (RCA)
