Various Artists, Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac
Like most tributes, Just Tell Me is a blind game of darts. Here, the ones that hit the bull’s-eye, like Karen Elson’s slinky “Gold Dust Woman,” Lee Ranaldo and J Mascis’ thumping “Albatross,” and Antony’s glacially haunting “Landslide,” vastly outweigh the shank shots. That includes MGMT’s “Future Games,” which flies so hilariously off the mark that it’s bound to knock over Stevie Nicks’ Tequila Sunrise. B+ Kyle Anderson

Sixpence None the Richer, Lost in Transition
It may be news to some, but the band best known for soundtracking She’s All That‘s makeover moment with their sugar-pop confection “Kiss Me” didn’t expire along with Freddie Prinze Jr.’s career. They did break up six years ago, but they’ve reunited in fine form on Lost. True, the songs are less sunny than in their heyday (death and disappointment both get their due) but still appealingly winsome. B+ Ray Rahman
