ANTENNAZ.Z. Top (RCA 66317)Fans might be able to tell the difference between Z.Z. Top's Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, but to anyone else, the band is just two guys with beards and one guy without. Likewise, there will be some listeners who hear something special in "Antenna," and many more for whom it will be just another Z.Z. Top album. It's not as if the band has made any drastic changes in its approach, for the songs here are neatly divided between straight-up rockers and techno-tinged boogie tunes (including one, "Deal Goin' Down," that boasts a U2-style intro)

You won't read about it in Rolling Stone or Spin, but there's a new musical genre taking shape in the United States today. It draws from sources more far-flung than the rap/rock fusion of Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock, and it boasts a sound more radical and revolutionary than breathless breakbeats of drum 'n' bass. This style is so new, in fact, it doesn't even have a name. But it does have its champions, and chief among them are Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Mark O'Connor, the trio responsible for "Appalachian Journey" (Sony Classical 66782, arriving in stores today)

For someone whose music most people would have no problem putting into a pigeonhole, Alison Krauss is very careful about labels.As far as music fans are concerned, she's probably the best-known bluegrass singer in the business. A regular winner at both the Grammy and Country Music Association award shows, Krauss has managed to maintain a pop star profile at a time when bluegrass barely registers on the average listener's radar. After all, no other bluegrass artists can boast of releasing platinum albums, as Krauss has with 1995's 2 million-selling "Now That I've Found You."
