MARIANNE FAITHFULL Easy Come, Easy Go Leave it to old Faithfull to come up with one of the coolest collections of covers we've heard lately. The guests (Keith Richards, Rufus Wainwright) are as eclectic as the material (Billie Holiday, Morrissey).
J. HOLIDAY Round 2 This R&B singer is coming off a Grammy nomination for his gold debut, Back of My Lac'. On the follow-up there are some solid smoothies, such as "Fall," but he still mostly comes off like the poor man's Ne-Yo.
LIVING THINGS Habeas Corpus Nothing like a little Latin to make you think a rock band is getting all highfalutin' on you. But things are pretty routine from this quartet with three brothers—though nowhere near as good as the JoBros.
