"Baduizm," Erykah Badu Billboard-Soundscan New music "Flaming Pie" Paul McCartney Paul McCartney's first studio album in four years is almost good, ft is better than " Off the Ground," his lightweight last album. But as a self- professed response to his work unearthing Beatles songs for the recent "Anthology" series, the new music is nowhere in that league. ; The idea behind "Flaming Pie" was to record a quick, casual set of songs with friends (Ringo Starr, Steve Miller, Jeff Lynne) and family members (his wife, Linda, and son, James) and watch the sparks fly. But when they ignite, the sparks, don't last for very long. Songs like the boomer nostalgia trip "the Song We Were Singing," the pop- blues scorcher "The World Tonight," the wistful • ballad "Someday s" (with great orchestration by George Martin) and thejaunty, mid-career Beatles- style "Young Boy" are highlights, though most are quickly dragged down by the commonplace. ; Neil Strauss, N.Y. Times News Service ''Hand It Over" Dinosaur Jr. i If K-Tel ever makes another Guitar Rock album, Dinosaur Jr. should be included. The group's new Mbum, "Hand It Over" goes from lo-fi chonls to ear-splitting sounds. It's pure guitar overload. That's in part because the vocals aren't powerful enough to penetrate through the sound. • The songs that exert some presence, especially ^'Nothing's Going On" and "I'm Insane," do work nicely. The rest have such muffled lyrics that it's like trying to have a conversation at a rock concert. : ' Matt Kohlman, Associated Press Writer Video Top 10 VIDEO SALES )." 101 Dalmatians" 2.
