- So you're a game-changing 20-year-old pop-country uber-star who made your name singing about the ups and downs of teenagerdom with a wisdom far beyond your years. What's your next move? Concept record. That's what Taylor Swift says she'll be delivering when her new album "Speak Now" arrives on October 25.

- Reviews for Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" are starting to spring up and -- surprise! -- everyone loves it. Rolling Stone gives the new album four stars and the BBC puts it a notch higher than Radiohead's "OK Computer."

- And in chart news, Eminem topped Billboard for the fourth week in a row with "Recovery" while M.I.A.'s hotly anticipated "Maya" barely cracked the top 10 in its chart debut.
