SMILE! Fact reviewing the ALMOST ALICE (CD) Buena Vista Buena Vista releases Al- most Alice, an album that puts a musical mad hatter spin on Alice and her magi- cal Wonderland. Utilizing an eclectic array of recording artists with original songs based on the film's unique characters, with something for everyone. The lead single, "Alice" is written and per- formed by Avril Lavigne, along with "The Poison" (The All-American Rejects), "The Technicolor Phase" (Owl City), "Her Name Is Alice" (Shinedown), "Painting Flow- ers" (All Time Low), "Where's My Angel" (Metro Station), and "Strange" sung by Tokio Hotel and Kerli. Get up as 3OH!3 signals "Follow Me Down," trailed by "Very Good Advice" from the 1951 Dis- ney film, plus "In Transit" (Mark Hoppus and Pete Wentz), "Welcome to Mystery" (Plain White T's), "Tea Party" (Kerli), "The Lobster Qua- drille" (Franz Ferdinand), and "Always Running Out of Time" from Motion City Soundtrack. Wolfmother de- livers "Fell Down a Hole," and it all comes to an end with Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" done magically by Grace Potter and the Noctur- nals. A Wonderland of songsl LITTLE BOOTS n HANDS (CD) Elektra Brit sensation Victoria Hesketh a/k/a Little Boots is UK pop music's "next big thing" -- as the petite 25- year-old paves the way for the future of dance-pop. Proof of that can be found on her much-anticipated album Hands -- a dozen songs that will keep your boots right on the dance floor. Boots delivers tracks with melodies and moods that overwhelm, and impossible to get enough of. Expose yourself to the sultry opener "New In Town," the destructive "Earth- quake," the hit song that started it all on Youtube "Stuck On Repeat," the chemistry of "Click," the cur- rent single is the synth- pop-gem "Remedy," and hits the halfway mark with the haunting "Meddle." Boots kicks off the second half with the spirited "Ghosts," the sum of it all "Mathematics," the straight-up "Symmetry," the inviting "Tune Into My Heart," the pulsating "Hearts Collide," and screeches to a halt with "No Brakes." Little Boots' feet are firmly planted on the groundl LOVE HAPPENS ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK (CO) La-La Land Love Happens is a ro- mantic comedy starring Aaron Eckhart as therapist Dr. Burke Ryan, and Jenni- fer Aniston as florist Eloise Chandler. The original mu- sic by composer Christopher Young is the perfect compan- ion to the story that has both people struggling with the hurt of love and loss. Eventu- ally finding themselves in a place where sometimes, love by bob morello the rest happens when you least ex- pect it. Young has already had success composing scores for, Spiderman, Ghostrider, The Grudge, and Drag Me To Hell. Love Happens is chock full, with sixteen outstanding tracks from the film, along with seven Bonus Tracks, each song spewing the emotions of the rollercoaster ride between the two principals in this fas- cinating comedy. CARRIE NEWCOMER -- BEFORE AND AFTER (CD) Rounder Carrie Newcomer's name is a misnomer, as this is her twelfth release on Rounder. Born a Quaker, Newcomer deftly uses her music to cut across secular and spiritual boundaries. The title track begins the festivities, as Mary Chapin Carpenter du- ets, adding her resonant vocals to "Before and After," the "Ghost Train" leaves the station with a message, the elegant string sound of "I Do Not Know Its Name," plus the skimming lyrics of "Stones in the River," the wishful "If Not Now," a bright ray of hope with "A Small Flash- light," and the forgetful "I Meant to Do My Work Today." "A Simple Change of Heart" sets the pace for second half beauties as, "Hush," the bit- ing "Coy Dogs," singing the praises of "Do No Harm," the poignant "I Wish I May, I Wish I Might," and the humorous bonus track "A Crash of Rhi- noceros." Newcomer will be on tour, March 26 at the Harvard Public Library/ Harvard MA, and March 27 at Cambridge's Club Passim. KEN PEPLOWSKI NOIR BLUE (CD) Capri Jazz reedman Ken Peplow- ski teams up with drummer Joe La Barbera, the well-re- spected bassist Jay Leon- hart, and acclaimed pianist Shelly Berg, to create a stel- lar group. Together they of- fer up a delicious mix of stan- dards, with the music of Duke Ellington/Billy Stray- horn, and three original compositions. Peplowski opens up on clarinet for the straight ahead sound of Irv- ing Berlin's "The Best Thing For You," switching over to saxophone for pianist Berg's tune, the bossa beat beauty "Home With You," trailing with the airy Ellington/ Strayhorn tune "Bourbon Street Jingling Jollies," let's it all hang out for Hoagy Carmichael's "Riverboat Shuffle," and lower the deci- bels to tender mode for a won- derful job on Ray Noble/Max Kester's "Love Locked Out." Drummer La Barbera's com- position "If Not For You" gets royal treatment, followed by a pair of Strayhorn ballads - "Multi-Colored Blue" and the title cut "Noir Blue." Jerome Kern's "Nobody Else But Me" gets a makeover bop version by the boys, before delivering Peplowksi's lengthy, original composition of "Little Dogs." No matter how you color it, Peplowski paints the town red with his exciting albuml
