CORSO IS STILL HAUNTED BY ACCIDENT-RELATED DREAMS. We asked Tony Crisp, author of Dream Dictionary, to explain.

CORSO: ''I dream that I wake up in my bunk facing the wrong direction, headfirst instead of feet first.''

CRISP: ''He's feeling if you're the right way around, if you go about life correctly, you're going to get through this.''

CORSO: ''The other dream is that I wake up in my bunk, I throw open my curtain, and there's a wall. I'm trapped.''

CRISP: ''He can't escape. There was possibly a period on the bus where he felt that panic.... There's probably some anxiety about going on tour again.''

ALIENS, ANTS & FARMS How do AAF measure up to others of their kind?

ALIEN ANT FARM ANThology On tracks like ''Movies'' and ''Attitude,'' AAF infuse metal with pop hooks and surprising musical dexterity. B+

ADAM ANT Friend or Foe The pirate-shirted pop star abandons his punk band, Adam and the Ants, for a ''Goody Two Shoes'' solo career. C
