This septet is back with an epic set that is one of the best rock albums you'll hear all year, covering richer musical and emotional terrain than you might expect to find from the land of soccer moms.
Praise & Blame
Taking on traditional gospel and blues, the 70-year-old delivers a praiseworthy effort. Best is a haunting version of Bob Dylan's "What Good Am I."
The Aussie goddess nails what may be the best album of her career, with Madonna's Confessions on a Dance Floor producer Stuart Price at the helm.
W.ants W.orld W.omen
You can hear just why Kanye West recruited Dwele to sing on "Flashing Lights" and his new single "Power." This is a first-class neo-soul affair.
