Her smash, the catchy "Love Song," garnered nods for song of the year and best female pop vocal performance. "I couldn't believe I was there," Bareilles says, still sounding awe-struck. "It was one of the best days of my life. It was such a special experience.

As long as she is miserable in love, as long as her emotions remain a magnificently tangled web, Fiona Apple will continue to satisfy her fans. The singer-songwriter's long-awaited new album, in stores today, is called Extraordinary Machine. It's a more realized extension of the passionate, arty pop approach heard on Apple's last record, 1999's When the Pawn ..., whose actual title is 90 words long. But this time around, the sound, though brilliantly layered, is more streamlined and accessible.

The Des Moines, Iowa, metal scene pretty much includes just two bands: Slipknot and Stone Sour. James Root and Corey Taylor are in both. Slipknot is known for intense live shows in which the nine members wear masks to de-emphasize themselves and focus on the blistering, heavy music. Stone Sour isn't known for much. Yet. Now in the middle of the band's first real tour (which stops in Baltimore Nov. 29 at Thunderdome), Root says crowd reactions have been favorable. "It's going really, really good so far," he says by phone from Toledo, Ohio.

A funny thing happened on the way out of "Spice World" -- I realized I was a Spice Girls fan.Lord knows, it wasn't what I had expected. Back in November, when the "Spice World" album came out, I was distinctly unimpressed, finding little merit in the crass commerciality of the Pepsi jingle "Generation Next" or the musical ambition of a semi-show-tune like "Lady Is a Vamp." It was as if the Spice Girls had begun to believe their success was in some way connected to having actual musical ability.
