Kesha's new album is a victory on all fronts, full of satisfying, empowering, diverse pop tunes. At times, it is just a bit shallow.
Soccer Mommy's new album Collection is a fantastic but infuriatingly short album that makes the listener beg for more depth in the future.
Lorde's sophomore album Melodrama is a pop masterpiece. This is a can't miss music experience for 2017.
A Tremendous Sea of Love is a fantastic album with great melodies, a new direction for Passion pit, and fantastic emotional impact - it's just disappointing to see it held back by poor production.
Lana Del Rey's new album is bloated with unnecessary tracks and I don't like the new trap direction. Still, she continues to show potential and there were a number of tracks on this album I did enjoy.
Carly Rae Jepsen's EMOTION is a sweet, sincere, and wonderfully catchy pop album that shows that modern electropop has a place in meaningful music discussion.
Fleetwood Mac's Rumours is pop perfection, filled with outstanding melody, production, and instrumentation.
