Throughout her career, Ani DiFranco has given her own take on tired rock star cliches. When other artists answered to major labels, she opted to start her own. While other guitarists relied on electric heroics, she pounded on a strangely tuned acoustic. And when faced with the task of releasing a career retrospective, Ani created anything but the traditional ''greatest hits'' package. With Canon, the double-disc set, fans will get an unprecedented look at how the artist sees her prolific

Making their debut studio album, New Wave produces Against Me!, raising the agressive folk-punk, anarchist protest music up from the underground. Against Me! made the mistake of releasing one of the more beloved independent label debuts of the decade with 2002's Reinventing Axl Rose, and have been playing a game of catch-up ever since. Tom Gabel's Billy-Bragg-meets-the-Clash songcraft melded punk and folk, the political and the personal, and rocked pretty damn hard as well. Their output since

Wyatt's career began forty years ago drumming and singing for Soft Machine, a post-psych outfit tied to the ''Canterbury Scene'' of the late 60s that yielded Pink Floyd and Gong, among others. On this, his ninth album, Wyatt collaborates with Brian Eno, Paul Weller, Phil Manzanera, and a small orchestra of string, woodwind, brass, and percussion players. Divided into three acts, ''Comicopera'' is an epic genre-bending allegory told through Robert's fragile tenor voice.Shrink-wrapped.
