While 'Montero' is one of the best pop songs of the year, most part of the album is generic and boring. Quite a disappointment considering how good the title track was.

HALSEY: IF I CAN'T HAVE LOVE, I WANT POWER

BILLIE EILISH: HAPPIER THAN EVER

American pop superstar’s sophomore album is an expansive follow-up for her groovy, atmospheric, and even terrifying debut. It has some flaws and things that could have been done better –any experimentation can partly go wrong– but still is among the best pop music released this year.
