Lori McKENNA wasn't all that different from any housewife with five kids -- except for the four critically acclaimed indie records she'd released -- when country superstar Faith Hill decided to record five of McKenna's songs on her 2005 album, "Fireflies," including the single "Stealin' Kisses" and the title track. For the Staunton, Mass., singer-songwriter who had married her high school sweetheart at 19 and lived in the same house ever since, it was surreal. It didn't stop there.

Faith Hill "Fireflies" (Warner Bros.) ** 1/2 . Forget "Fireflies." Hill should have titled her new album "My Apology." Almost everything about the CD feels like a reaction to the widespread complaints that her last collection, 2002's "Cry," sacrificed country character in pursuit of pop crossover sales. As this album (due in stores Tuesday) shows, Hill did some serious soul-searching.

Redman "Red Gone Wild" Def Jam **** Redman was teetering on the brink of irrelevance. His intoxicating growl and irreverent wordplay made him one of the most promising rappers of the '90s. After his 1996 apex, "Muddy Waters," each following album seemed to get worse. The low point came with a puzzling appearance on the sleazy Christina Aguilera track "Dirrty" in 2002.

WHEN Mandy Moore steps out of her black Prius and bounds into a tiny speck of a restaurant in Los Feliz, not a hipster on the block flinches. Sure, her toffee bangs are partially covering her eyes -- but you'd expect someone might make a correlation between the girl on the street and the enormous photo of her plastered on a giant billboard just a few yards away, towering over Vermont Avenue.
