>Pop Tina Turner, "Tina!" (Capitol). As Tina Turner prepares to launch her first North American tour in years, Capitol has assembled "Tina!," a compilation documenting her development from deep soul diva, to R&B/pop crossover artist, and finally, to mainstream pop- soul grande dame.

Duran Duran's Rio (right) has been named the greatest music video of all time. The 1982 video, featuring the band in suits on a Caribbean beach being teased by scantily-clad women, beat favourites like Michael Jackson's Thriller and Madonna's Like a Prayer.

Take On Me, the 1985 video from A-Ha, where singer Morten Harket was a comic book character who...

By JOHN HUGAR For years now, Icelandic band Sigur Ros has been making instrumental "post-rock" music, and has had a great deal of success. Now, however, the band looks to the realm of pop music. New album, "Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust" ("With a Buzz in Our Ears, We Play Endlessly") is their poppiest yet, with the band just as concerned with hooks and choruses as atmosphere. This could have blown up in their faces, but instead, it creates a very intriguing album. What the band has...

MOTLEY CRUE -- "Saints of Los Angeles" (Eleven Seven Music): The last time the original members of Motley Crue went into the studio, the foursome came out with 1989's "Dr. Feelgood," the glam-metal band's seminal release. "Saints of Los Angeles" is not even close to on par with that album. In the 19 years since "Feelgood," the Crue has put out live albums, discs with singers other than Vince Neil, a studio CD without drummer Tommy Lee and countless singles, books and compilations. "Saints"...

By Jon Pareles At around 3 a.m. Sunday at the 2008 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Phil Lesh and Friends were harmonizing on "Sugaree," a song by Lesh's band mate in the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia.

Ghostland Observatory was pumping out electronic dance music in one...
