Sisters of Avalon

Judging from the soaring self-assurance of ”Sisters of Avalon” to the love-wounded quiver on ”Unhook the Stars” (the title track of the recent Nick Cassavetes film), Lauper remains an intoxicating pop siren. Her sixth album — and first release of all-new material in four years — is a wonderfully eclectic affair that has the gorgeous sound of sweet comeback in every cut. B+
