Lambert stormed the country charts with the incendiary "Kerosene" in 2005. Now she tops herself on what will likely remain the country album of the year.

Fogerty's documentary roots rock was always rebel music, a counterculture of factory-floor politics via Hank Williams and Dale Hawkins. Revival is no rerun. It is Fogerty getting back to work.

On Neon Bible, the reverb is so big and black that the beat becomes boom andthe orchestral garnish, arranged by Chassagne and Final Fantasy's Owen Pallett, gets pressed to the margins.

Kala is less pop-friendly than its predecessor. It'sheavier, noisier, more jagged.
