While this is his first album not buoyed by a concept since he became the undisputed greatest rapper alive, there’s far more to DAMN. than K-dot’s emphatic demonstrations of dominance.

This album could have been an instant classic if a lot of the weaker moments weren’t so exposed but nonetheless, Tyler definitely shows a surprising maturity and growth (much like a flower) in his music.

Del Rey twists the past and present together to create a new definition of herself and American pop culture in our chaotic present, balancing nostalgia and reality in her signature dreamy way.

As cinematic and atmospheric as Radiohead yet uniquely modern and youthful, Melodrama is the strongest and most complete album experience in pop music.

Yeezus is a statement of provocation in the music world, an unsettling and intense album that impresses for being ambitious, but falls short on the expectations of being an overall good record, no matter how dark it might be.

Blonde is a success not only because, technically speaking, it’s a outstanding sophomoric effort, but also because it’s pure artistry with soul and life injected into it to make it something each listener can engage with and relate to.

On E·MO·TION, every chorus explodes, every hook is impossibly catchy, and every song sounds like a Top 40 single waiting to happen. It improves on Jepsen’s previous effort Kiss in every way: her vocals are more confident, backed by music and production that effortlessly compliment them.

While this might be Frank’s debut, it feels as if a mature R&B artist put out his fifth album or so, bringing unconventional sounds into the mix, elements of gospel, pop and neo-soul.

Lemonade keeps you in an ambiance that is sensed in the room of silence. It’s not awkward, it’s emotionally empowering.

At its basest, beyond its incredibly complicated racial politics, it’s an appeal to love, thought, and conversation.
