Kanye West [RCA Records] *** 1/2 Kanye West, the self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton Don, is a flashy dude - known, on record, for clever turns of phrase, attention-grabbing beats and huge walls of sound, and off, for his cool-gear-and-hot-girls lifestyle blog. Subtlety is not his strong suit. Neither is self-control. Yet, his new album, 808s & Heartbreak (Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam), is austere and disciplined. And his self-imposed constrictions - singing (with loads of AutoTune) instead of rapping, sticking to distinctly nonhip-hop rhythms and new-wave-era synths - have unleashed a new burst of creativity that rivals his debut, The College Dropout.

Billy Ronson won another game in overtime for the Baltimore Blast on Friday night, and should be taking bows around the Major Soccer League for his early-season scoring binge.But Ronson (seven goals, 17 assists) said yesterday that a lot of people around the league still are waiting for him to fall off."There are so many people doubting me," said Ronson, who used his knee to knock in the winning goal 3 minutes, 46 seconds into sudden-death overtime against the St. Louis Storm on Friday night at the St. Louis Arena.

With almost any awards show, the bottom line is "Who will win?" But to find out who the Best Whatevers are, the folks at home are usually forced to endure an unending stream of witless celebrities and pointless production numbers -- precisely the sort of time-wasters that leave most of us wishing there were a way to fast-forward through to the good stuff.Not the MTV Video Music Awards, though. This special (which airs live at 9 tonight on MTV) is perhaps the only awards show on television that manages to remain interesting even when they're not announcing another batch of winners.

It also put them in a second-place tie with the Blast in the Major Soccer League's Eastern Division, two games behind the Kansas City Comets.
