MARY J. BLIGE Growing Pains
Three things you can count on: death, taxes and good Mary J. Blige albums. And from the killer dance groove "Just Fine" to the hauntingly melancholy "Fade Away," her latest is often better than good.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
With Johnny Depp warbling effectively in the title role, this soundtrack, in vivid fashion, plays like a grand night at the theater. Edward Sanders' choirboy croon on the heartwarming "Not While I'm Around" will melt you.
