Calendar's pop staff surveys 40 of the nation's most popular or critically acclaimed albums :

**** HOLE, "Live Through This," Geffen. Courtney Love's incredibly sad lyrics reflect the turmoil in her life in an album that aims at all levels of the human psyche and rarely if ever misses its target.

**** LIZ PHAIR, "Whip-Smart," Matador. Her voice still hits those characteristically flat notes that make her real. This brilliant sophomore effort confirms Phair as a revolutionary force.

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good, recommended) and four stars (excellent). A rating of five stars is reserved for reissues or retrospectives.
