HAGERSTOWN, Md. A judge has approved a deal enabling people to get refunds on the Evanescence album, "Anywhere But Home," if they bought it a Wal-Mart in Maryland.

The agreement signed Wednesday partially settles a lawsuit filed by a local couple who claim the copy they bought at Wal-Mart contained explicit lyrics but didn't carry a parental advisory sticker. Evanescence is fronted by lead singer Amy Lee, who is from the Little Rock area.

New York-based Sony B-M-G Music Entertainment and its Wind-Up Records subsidiary agreed to offer the refunds in exchange for dismissal of the claims. The record company didn't acknowledge any wrongdoing.

Bentonville-based Wal-Mart is being sued by the couple, which claims the retailer deceived consumers by selling the album without a warning label.
