Remember "Torn," the Natalie Imbruglia song that was played every three minutes on one radio station or another a few years ago? Of course you do. Well, the former Australian soap star has a new album out, White Lilies Island, but don't expect to find any more eternal pop melodies on it.

San Francisco native Tommy Guerrero has returned from skateboarding and relative obscurity with this year's offering of Junk Collector. Guerrero, who became a poster child for Powell Peralta in 1985 when he began his professional skateboarding career, eventually became a member of the Bones Brigade - a sort of a mid to late '80s skateboarding dream team - and was cast in vintage skate films such as "The Search for Animal Chin."
