Patrick Stump doesn't claim to be cool. “I don't believe in guilty pleasures,” Stump says, when the subject of pop music comes up. The Fall Out Boy singer's solo album, “Soul Punk,” which dropped Oct. 18, is the cool kind of pop music, though: the kind that draws on Timbaland as much as any punk band and ends up sounding a little like a Prince record. Stump, who caps his tour Friday at Metro, called in during a recent stop in Buffalo to talk with RedEye about Hollywood parties, socialism and what hip-hop fans think of his other band.

** stars (out of four) One look over the tracklist for Crystal Castles' third album, which features the titles “Plague,” “Sad Eyes” and “Child I Will Hurt You,” should be enough to reassure any listener that the electronic duo has not abandoned its generally grim aesthetic. If anything, it may serve as a warning that Crystal Castles have absorbed some of the lessons of their successors in the past couple years, mining heavy bass and washed out vocals for a dark atmosphere rather than relying on in-your-face abrasiveness.

*** (out of 4) During the middle of Jay-Z's verse on "3 Kings" last year, he had a bar where he just sneered, sniffed, sniveled. That's all it was: "King H-O, y'all should know by now/ and if you don't, uh-- *sniff*. " It was the best part of the song, and today's "Open Letter" embodies that line, only in an entire song. It's both a direct response to the recent controversies surrounding Hov (the illegal-but-actually-legal vacation to Cuba, people clowning on his share of the Nets, his friendship with Obama)

Last night during the NBA Finals, Jay-Z debuted a three-minute commercial for the Samsung Galaxy phone and in the process revealed the following: Jay-Z is making a new album! The name of the album is "Magna Carta Holy Grail. " The album will be released on July 4, 2013 ... kinda. Producers Rick Rubin, Timbaland, Swizz Beats and Pharrell are involved! In what capacity is still to be determined, but still. Kanye West was in attendance during this session but wasn't shown on camera.

*** (out of 4) Rihanna's new album “Unapologetic,” her best since “Good Girl Gone Bad” and maybe her best ever, finds the singer conflicted. She explores both tragic love and her general badassness in a way that hints at some interior reality. (This vulnerability, and the power of hope in a place fractured by love, contrasts with the impregnable ice fortress of pop stardom Rihanna has built around her.) With that mission in mind, the singer's A-team of collaborators offers a varied range of ideas that Rihanna handles...

***1/2 (out of four) When you're in love, there's no way to look cool. In theory, love's a graceful, sophisticated experience, but in practice it's full of silly pet names and stupid inside jokes - things that make the other person laugh and onlookers roll their eyes. In the seven years since his last album, “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” Justin Timberlake has staked out a career on being an impeccably cool dude--single-handed championship of the pork pie hat aside. So the recently married singer's gushing, lovestruck third solo album, “The 20/20...

*** (out of 4) Since Robin Thicke broke through as a songwriter in the late '90s, he's always hung around the cusp of stardom, never quite breaking through for himself. That never stopped him from hanging out with some real stars though, keeping the company of guys like Lil Wayne, Jay Z and the Neptunes. So it's fitting that finally, in 2013, when his No. 1 hit "Blurred Lines" earned him a standing invite to all the coolest parties, he had to be dropped off by Pharrell, who is experiencing something of a renaissance himself this year (with...

Album review “G I R L” Pharrell Williams 3 stars   Holy cow, do I ever want Pharrell to collaborate with Janelle Monae! His just-released album, the funktaculicious “G I R L,” had me doing a mental shuffle-step-spin so hard, I felt like I was back in her 2013 album “The Electric Lady.” Actually, now I'm daydreaming about a mashup between his “Gust of Wind” (“With your love I can board the skies/Running away that electrifies/Mothership Other, can I stow away?

** (out of 4) Regardless of the varying quality of the music they contain, posthumously released albums are usually pathetic . Often, a group of music biz execs take a break from, say, gorging themselves on whatever's left of Justin Bieber's sweet young soul to squeeze more cash out of beloved icons no longer around to complain. Their goal? Rally the artist's fan base by assuming that no one will speak negatively about a legend, especially a dead one. For Michael Jackson, who passed away in 2009, this has already happened.
