Arts and Entertainment Prince is sueing fans who post links to recordings of his live performances online

The singer is targeting 22 individuals for 'massive infringement' of his work

Album: Maroon 5, Hands All Over (A&M)

The studio anchor of Maroon 5's third album is super-producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, who apparently approached the band, rather than the other way round, before inflicting upon them the same process to which he subjected Def Leppard, Bryan Adams and AC/DC: basically, strip away everything, get them to write better songs, and start from scratch.

Album: Semi Precious Weapons, You Love You (Geffen)

Semi Precious Weapons are an outrageously flamboyant glam-rock quartet from the same NYC scene that spawned Lady Gaga: she used to support them, now they're opening her Monster's Ball jaunt and blowing teeny minds.

DVD: Precious (15)

Claireece "Precious" Jones (played elegantly by newcomer Gabourey Sidibe) is no ordinary 16-year-old black girl growing up in 1980s Harlem.

Album: Foals, Total Life Forever (Warner Bros)

Compared to the claustrophobic Antidotes, Foals' second album is a breath of fresh air – as if someone had opened the windows of a hermetically-sealed rehearsal room upon the band's somewhat solipsistic math-rock exercises.

Album: Gabriella Cilmi, Ten (Island Records)

Oh dear. Having scored themost played record of2009 with the still-notthat-irritating "SweetAbout Me", the Italian-Aussie songstress hasplugged into her "innerdisco diva" for this, hersecond album. It's a disastrousdecision: moreTeena Marie than DonnaSummer; all backcombedbeats and 1980s powerchords.Ten calls to mindKylie's early 1990s discodabblings, when she maderecords aimed at crossingfrom the dancefloor to theradio, when her naturaltrajectory was alwaysthe other way around.

The Word On... Tinchy Stryder, Catch 22

"Generally Stryder's straight solo tunes simply don't compare to the samples or collaborations that make up exactly half of his album. It's not that they're a complete flop, it's just that they're noticeably not his stronger moments." - Laura Nineham, dro wnedinsound.com

Album: Master Shortie, A.D.H.D. (Odd One Out)

It's hard to know what to make of Master Shortie, the hip-hop persona of former Brit School pupil and West End musical performer Theo Kerlin – and not just because his showbiz past casts doubts upon his hip-hop credentials.
