Pam's New Music Downloads

If you're still holding out for another "Fast Car," you won't find it on Tracy Chapman's new CD, One Bright Future. but there remains an enduring appeal to her sweet twang and honest introspection. "Thinking of You," is a gentle heart breaker.

Heidi Klum's hubby, Seal, could sing the movie listing and breathe soul into them. On his latest album, Soul, Seal respectfully tackles R&B classics by Al Green, Sam Cooke and James Brown and proves himself to be a worthy successor to their legacy.

It doesn't take long on the new Dido album, Safe Trip Home, to realize how much she's been missed. "Don't Believe in Love," the standout opening track and first single, returns the British singer-songwriter to classy territory with its jazzy, understated cool.
