Amy Grant loves Christmas music. She loves it enough to have released an album of Christmas music back in 1992, and to have done Christmas shows in Nashville every year since.The shows have done well, too. Not that Grant is in it for the money -- truth is, she donates her profits each year to charity -- but she does get a lot of satisfaction from knowing that the Christmas show she puts on with the Nashville Symphony can sell out the Nashville Arena for two nights each season.Still, her ambitions are bigger than that.

Washington -- It's hard to think of Amy Grant without remembering the "Baby Baby" video.Meeting her now, in the lobby of Washington's Four Seasons hotel, she seems every bit the businesslike pop star. Even though she's in the midst of a publicity tour to promote her new album, "House of Love" (A&M 31454-0230, arriving in stores today), Grant is courteous, charming and totally down-to-earth in her sensible shoes and conservative blue dress.Still, the "Baby Baby" clip defines the way most of us imagine her. It was hardly typical video fare, with no special effects or exotic locales; all it offered was Grant and a good-looking guy cavorting and acting cute as she lip-synced to the song.

The Crystal MethodVegas (Outpost 30003)Like the Chemical Brothers, the Crystal Method's greatest genius isn't rhythmic but textural. In other words, it's not the beats that make "Vegas" worth visiting, but the way those beats are played out. Master mixers Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan have tweaked the components in their electronic arsenal for maximum sonic impact, so the synth sounds are thick and chewy, the drums carry more punch than Holyfield, while...
