KEEP IT COMIN'Keith Sweat (Elektra 61216)Because he helped pioneer the hip hop-powered sound of new jack swing, fans have come to expect a certain amount of rhythmic insistence from Keith Sweat, and his current album, "Keep It Comin'," certainly delivers on that front. Indeed, from the bouncy beats of "Let Me Love You" to the sample-studded groove of the title tune, the album is an almost irresistible inducement to dance. Even so, what makes this music worth returning to isn't the way it swings, but the way Sweat sings.

The Artist Formerly Known As PrinceChaos and Disorder (Warner Bros. 46317)As with most contractual disputes, the key to "Chaos and Disorder," the latest release from the Artist Formerly Known as Prince, lies in the fine print. According to a line at the bottom of the album credits, "this compilation serves as the last original material recorded by [TAFKAP] 4 warner brothers records." In other words, this is symbol-man's grand goodbye to the label, and given the enmity generated during his fight with Warner Bros.

INCESTICIDENirvana (DGC 24504) There are only two kinds of rock fans -- those who love specific albums and those who adore certain artists. Album fans tend to have limited loyalty, and will maintain their support only if an act stays within the boundaries of its initial success; artist fans, on the other hand, buy anything and everything their idols record. As such, those whose interest in Nirvana runs no further than the songs on "Nevermind" are likely to be disappointed with the odds and ends that make up the group's newest album, "Incesticide."

GET UP ON ITKeith Sweat (Elektra 61550)There's always been something of a lover-man aura to Keith Sweat's music, but he's never presented that side of his sound as literally as he does on "Get Up on It." Between the pillow-talk persuasiveness of his voice and the single-minded insistence of his lyrics, Sweat makes no secret of how he defines romance. As such, "Get Up on It" comes across less as a musical valentine than a sort of danceable sex manual. To his credit, Sweat avoids the kind of slavering explicitness that marks the work of his proteges in Silk, but even so, there's not a whole lot of subtlety to be found in the likes of "Come Into My Bedroom" or "Grind On You."
