Jakob Dylan's new solo album, "Women and Country," is more of a return than a depature. "Women and Country" sees the Wallflowers front man reuniting with T-Bone Burnett, who produced the Wallflowers' first album, "Bringing Down the Horse." After his first stripped down solo record, Dylan (yes, he's the son of that other Dylan guy), went back to working with a full band on "Women and Country." Dylan also tapped singer Neko Case to do back-up vocals on the album and the tour, which comes to Rams Head Live April 22. On his songwriting process "I see it like someone who is writing a play.

Adam Duritz sings as if he's talking. The Counting Crows frontman paces the stage, gestures with his hands, pauses as if in thought, issues words in bursts, shakes his head. It's as if he's telling a story, explaining himself, confessing. There's also that expressive voice, and his predilection for slowing familiar songs down and reworking their melodies, making them new again - all of it gives the band's appearance Tuesday at Wolf Trap an intimacy that made it feel more like a conversation than a performance.

Maybe it's a family trait. Bob Dylan loves being on the outside of the industry looking in; he's made a career of it. His son, Jakob, now enjoys the same role with his band, the Wallflowers. "I like being the underdog,"says the younger Dylan. "Plus, the fans are the ones who mean the most to me." Jakob Dylan, 32, is trying to come back from the relatively slow sales of the Wallflowers' last CD, Breach, which came out two years ago and bombed by comparison with the 5 million-selling Bringing Down the Horse in 1996.

At its darkest, the Wallflowers song "Hand Me Down" sounds like the mother of all bad reviews. Over a rhythm guitar that's equal parts Tom Petty and Lou Reed, singer Jakob Dylan drily chides, "You won't ever amount to much / You won't be anyone." It gets worse from there, as the nameless accusers continue to berate our hero. But what really hurts isn't the venom in these lines, but the condescension. "It's not your fault that you embarrass us all," goes one apologetic jibe. Hearing it, you can't help but wince.

The great George V. Higgins, one-time occupant of this space, wised up some starry-eyed college kids a few years back with this brutal truth: "No one asked you to write, and no one will care if you stop. And if you succeed, no one will notice. It's a rough, heartless business."Why, then, in the face of Higgins' Law, are so many drawn to the writing life? A few clues are offered in the mags this month. For William Maxwell, former New Yorker fiction editor and an author of numerous novels and short stories, writing was a way to tap into the healing power of memory.

Tha Carter III Lil Wayne Grade: B+ Actors of a certain standing live by an old adage - "one for the money, one for the work" - a bit of career calculus where they switch off between working on money-making blockbusters and more artistic, less commercial pursuits. Rappers, especially in this declining economy, can't afford that kind of luxury, but Lil Wayne comes close on Tha Carter III (Cash Money), bouncing between irresistible pop hits and some wild hip-hop experimentation. He performs at 1st Mariner Arena tonight with Birdman, Yo Gotti and Gucci Man The hits are pretty self-evident.

Parents, be prepared to have your kids' patience tested -- and, of course, your own.At almost 90 minutes, "The -Rugrats Movie" is three times the length of those Nickelodeon cartoons your children never seem to tire of. Whether they're ready to sit in a dark room for that long is a decision only you'll be able to make.You're also the ones who'll be forced to sit there alongside them, and be warned: The film is no more or less than the TV show writ large. Although some clever touches are clearly directed at adults -- at one point, a careening baby carriage wreaks havoc on a bucolic meadow scene featuring Bambi and Thumper -- much of the film's humor is quite likely to go under your head.

Madonna kicks off tour, and gets a bit political Even at 50, the queen of pop just can't stop courting controversy. As Madonna kicked off her international "Sticky and Sweet" tour Saturday night in Wales, she took a none-too subtle swipe at the presumptive Republican nominee for U.S. president. Amid a four-act show at Cardiff's packed Millennium Stadium, a video interlude carried images of destruction, global warming, Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, Zimbabwe's authoritarian President Robert Mugabe - and U.S. Senator John McCain.

* = Poor** = fair*** = good**** = excellentGodzillaThe Album (Epic/Sony Music Soundtrax 69338)Like the movie ad says, Size Matters. And just as you can't have a summer blockbuster film without larger-than-life special effects, you can't have a summer blockbuster soundtrack without a generous serving of superstars.Star power is not a problem for "Godzilla: The Album." Not only does it boast a raft of monster acts, including the Wallflowers, Foo Fighters, Jamiroquai and Rage Against the Machine, one track even pairs hip-hop auteur Puff Daddy with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page -- a match-up almost as awesome as when Godzilla squared off against Mothra.
