Lookingh 4 Myself, Usher
Rating: 3 out of 5
Usher's seventh album is a far cry from the tried and tested - from the opening dub-step track Can't Stop Won't Stop, which was produced by and features will.i.am, to the Jacko-inspired I Care For U, the album experiments with genres. With a track list of 18 tunes, the CD is also good value for money, and the classic ballad Lessons For The Lover stands out for us.

Rock Of Ages: Orginal Motion Picture Soundtrack
Rating: 3 out of 5
If you've seen the Broadway musical of the flick, or love a good episode of Glee, you'll want to get your hands on this CD. Catherine Zeta-Jones rocks out on Hit Me With Your Best Shot; the cast's rendition of Don't Stop Believin' gives Lea Michele and co. a run for their money. And we especially love Tom Cruise's Pour Some Sugar On Me.
