Gossip 

Music for Men, (Columbia)

Gossip face potential backlash for their major label shift---a far cry from an Arkansas punk-rock blues band originally on Kill Rock Stars. But Music for Men is an homage to homos. The title track and "Men In Love" nod to the lack of queer-minded music. Political dance anthems "Pop Goes the World," "Heavy Cross" and "8th Wonder" will fill clubs, but it's Beth Ditto's powerhouse vocals that make Gossip one of the best bands in the business. "Love and Let Love" winks at Salt-n-Pepa when Ditto whispers, "Ah, push it." And that she does.
