7. Lorde - Melodrama

Lorde - Melodrama
June 16, 2017
Critic Score

35 reviews

Melodrama finds Lorde producing the best work of her career so far, crafting an ambitious and uncompromising pop statement suffused with intensely personal artistry. Both jubilant and frightened, insecure and proud, the album establishes her as a pop star on her terms.

6. St. Vincent - MASSEDUCTION

St. Vincent - MASSEDUCTION

It might not be the preeminent masterpiece many are already making it out to be, but the album does have some great moments, and it bodes good things for the trajectory of St. Vincent’s ongoing career.

Celebrating his influences and paying homage are admirable and generate a joyous, entertaining album, but it ends too quickly.

Jens Lekman - Life Will See You Now

22 reviews

There’s a lot in Life Will See You Now to suggest that it’s Lekman’s finest album to date. It’s certainly his most refined and emotionally rich.

1. Kesha - Rainbow

Kesha - Rainbow

Critic Score

27 reviews

The extraordinary vision that Kesha has put forth ensures that in due course, Rainbow will be remembered on its own merits: not only as the unquestionable best album she’s ever put out, but also one of 2017’s finest pop releases.
