THIS IS MERandy Travis (Warner Bros. 45501)Compared to such guys as Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Alan Jackson, Randy Travis seems like an old-timer on the country music scene, and some listeners may have begun to think of his music as tame and predictable. Boy, are they in for a surprise. Even though "This Is Me" is full of the sort of stuff Travis is famous for -- straight-forward singing, low-key sentimentality and a wickedly wry sense of humor -- somehow he manages to make it all seem fresh and new. Granted, some of the credit belongs with the songs, particularly "The Box," an impressively cliche-free song about fatherly love, and the dryly funny "Small Y'All."

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- In 2003, when Howard Dean named "guns, God and gays" as Southern obsessions and said he wanted to work for the white guys with Confederate flag stickers on their pickup trucks, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware must have seen Jesus. Now he's gone one better. To the litany of political pandering, Mr. Biden has added a new invocation: slavery. As in, "Hey! I'm from a slave state, too!" Those weren't his precise words, but Mr. Biden, who is considering a run for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, has been working hard lately to liberate his inner bubba, twice mentioning that his home state was once a slave state.

MOVEMoby (Elektra 61568)AMBIENTMoby (Instinct 253)It's no wonder that Moby has emerged as the first true star of techno music. Not only does he have the right combination of skills, being a keyboardist, composer and producer, but he's also blessed with sufficient range to make what he does as listenable as it is danceable. "Move," for example, spans almost the whole techno spectrum in six songs, offering pop exuberance in "Move (You Make Me Feel So Good)," a trance-inducing pulse in the percussive "Morning Dove," retro thrills in "Move (Disco Threat)

These days, there's a lot of talk in the music business about the people who have helped make country music more popular than it has been in years. Some will point to Randy Travis, and the way his singles revitalized the unvarnished sincerity of country singing; others will applaud Dwight Yoakam for making hillbilly music hip again. And of course, everyone will mention Garth Brooks, who almost single-handedly proved that a country fTC artist could have a pop-star-sized audience.But if you want to know the truth, there's nothing any of them have done that can compare to the revolution wrought by Roy Acuff.
