In Brief

* * "Starting Over," Reba McEntire. MCA. McEntire salutes the pop and country songs she says have long inspired her, her method of flattery being sincere imitation. It's an elegant karaoke exercise, with Reba's voice replacing those of Linda Ronstadt, Dave Loggins, Crystal Gayle, the Supremes and others in arrangements mostly mirroring the hit versions.

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