Rock critic Ken Tucker reviews the new albums from singers Linda Ronstadt and Kate Bush. Ronstadt's is called "Cry Like A Rainstorm, Howl Like The Wind," and Ken says it's a return to her early pop-rock sound. Bush's new work, "The Sensual World," continues what Ken calls her "lulling loopiness."
Tucker, a founding member of the band Sleater-Kinney, is back with a new group, The Corin Tucker Band, and an album called 1,000 Years. Rock critic Ken Tucker says the record has an "air of heavy but often beautiful melancholy."
