Several songs by the writers of a couple of Faith Hill's hits on board, as well as Hill's hubby, Tim McGraw, again co-producing, it's not a huge surprise the Massachusetts singer's third album, which just debuted atop the country chart, veers further than ever into pop-rocking Hill-Twain territory. It's also top-heavy with stop-and-smell-the-roses philosophizing, a little of which usually goes more than far enough.

** 1/2 Jo Dee Messina, "I'm Alright," Curb. The Massachusetts-born singer has a country hit with the bouncy kiss-off song "Bye Bye," but the knockout is "Even God Must Get the Blues," which she croons with a Bonnie Raitt-like heart and soul. Despite some conventional pop-country material, Messina's sophomore album has enough grit to keep it a notch above the pack. Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
