The Hives, Tyrannosaurus Hives: This garage band's latest is more fun than anything the Strokes/White Stripes/Vines have done lately.

Lloyed Banks, The Hunger for More: Newly solo rapper emerges as more than just 50 Cent's sidekick, and a bankable talent in his own right.

Travis Tritt, My Honky Tonk History: The country vet's barroom voice remains as potent as a shot of whiskey on his bright, engaging latest.

Scissor Sisters, Scissor Sisters: The grooviest dance-pop outfit to come out of the downtown New York scene since Deee-Lite cuts and pastes 70s disco, glam-rock and Eltonesque pop into a kitschy-cool sound.

k.d. lang, Hymns of the 49th Parallel: On this heartfelt disc, Alberta native lang wraps-her velvet voice around songs written by such Canadians as Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen.
