1. also front man A man who serves as a nominal leader but who lacks real authority.
2. Music A leading singer with a group. Myles Kennedy. And they sound just like ... Creed with a new name and a new singer. Songs like the title track and opener Find The Real are bombastic business as usual and you'll be hard pressed to spot the difference.
The Delivery Man (Lost Highway)
AFTER his Cold Mountain collaboration with Emmylou Harris, Costello explores country roots with the Nashville label best known for Ryan Adams, and it's his best outing in years. Harris duets on the lovely Nothing Clings Like Ivy and Heart Shaped Bruise while Lucinda Williams drawls through There's A Story In Your Voice. This is no one trick pony, however. The breathless Bedlam Bedlam: see Bethlem Royal Hospital.

Hence Television is a skewed ode to loneliness while Full Moon In My Soul is almost Beatley pop. Creeped Out visits T Rex glam-rock, English Girl could be a Kinks klassic and Demons & Friends is a fantasy dressed in gorgeous harmonies.
Greatest Hits (Atlantic)
GOLDIE LOOKIN CHAIN
THERE'S a lot of hype surrounding the Welsh tongue-in-cheek rappers - and it's entirely justified. Not only is this collection of the band's CD-Rs hugely entertaining but their observations are often as spot-on as Mike Skinner's Streets. Guns Don't Kill People, Rappers Do rips off KRS-One and the laugh out loud Self Suicide - a celebration of celebrity death - plunders a Gravediggaz riff. Musically and lyrically the Golden wonders take a satirical swipe at everyone from Barry White to Eminem.
DOLLY PARTON par·ton
Any of the point particles believed to be a constituent of hadrons, now known as quarks. No longer in technical use.

Live And Well (Sugar Hill)
RECORDED live on the Halos & Horns tour at the Dollywood Theatre in December 2002, this double CD is a career-spanning exercise with a leaning toward Parton's back-to-the-roots albums. It's a joyous affair with reflective songs such as The Grass Is Blue rubbing shoulders with hits like Jolene and 9 to 5. Highlights include unlikely covers of Neil Young's After The Gold Rush and Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven plus a definitive reading of self-penned mega-hit I Will Always Love You.
