MUSIC Ximena Sarinana Mediocre The Mexican actress is from cinematic royalty, but with this album she truly makes a name for herself. Like a Latina Fiona Apple, her album of jazzy, seductive grinds translates even though it’s in Spanish.

MUSIC Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy Axl Rose’s anthemic rock voice still makes my panties wetter than the November rain. Chinese Democracy, inflated by all the hype and a very, very long wait, surprisingly lives up to its promise -- even with the all new band line-up. “Better” has some of the sickest guitar squeal…
