In Brief

** 1/2 "Tourism," Roxette, EMI. There's a little bit of everything in the Swedish pop-rock duo's grab-bag collection, including five new songs, old hits performed in concert and some material previously unreleased in America. A treat for those who relish the vibrant vocals of Marie Fredriksson, who's one of pop's best and most underrated singers. Again working with material beneath her talents, she transforms low-grade fluff into passable--often delectable--pop.

New albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
