Formerly of the aggressive feminist punk outfit Silverfish, Leslie Rankine renamed herself Ruby in 1995 and changed her musical tactics. Instead of hard-edged post-punk, Ruby's music is a dark, eerie fusion of trip-hop and industrial, with quietly menacing beats and droning synths. Although it could be said that she was simply trend-hopping with Salt Peter, Ruby's music is substantially better than Silverfish -- it's more provocative, as well as better written. Not all of the album works, but Salt Peter remains a promising debut. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

"...not the stereotypical dancehall album....King harmonizes like En Vogue, gives you hip hop flava like Mary J. Blige, and moans sensuous R&B lyrics like Karyn White, yet remains true to her Jamaican roots..." © TiVo

Jamiroquai's sophomore record had all the slinky grooves and great musicianship of the debut, but it also offered a better set of songs and more ambitious musical themes. As with Emergency on Planet Earth, Jason Kay's dead-on impression of Stevie Wonder and Sly Stone drives the group's blend of acid jazz and funky R&B. "Space Cowboy" and "Light Years" were hits all over the world, and made the band stars in Europe and Japan, while substantial clubplay earned them a degree of recognition for American audiences. But Jamiroquai refused to be known as simply a party band; the group takes on social issues such as homelessness and Native Americans' rights. © John Bush /TiVo

Most of the members of Sponge had played in straight hard rock bands before group formed. That background is evident throughout Rotting Piñata, the debut from this Detroit-based alternative hard rock band. Sponge's sense of alternative rock goes back as far as Pearl Jam, or maybe only Stone Temple Pilots, judging from the hit single "Plowed." For an STP ripoff band, they're very adept -- the chords cluster together, vocalist Vinnie sings directly from his gut, and the whole thing barrels ahead, ignoring whatever's in its way. Even if they have the polished, commercial veneer, they only deliver the songs in spurts. "Plowed" wails mercilessly and "Molly" is a rare contemplative moment, yet most of the disc features half-finished ideas like the monotonous title track. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
