Lady Gaga's return to her electro-pop roots brings shame to the genre. Weak choruses plague the entire album, with even the better cuts feeling like leftovers from The Fame, her debut album released over ten years ago. Most songs here sound like anyone could have made them, with the awful drop on 1000 Doves bringing to mind images of Marshmello, and tracks like Fun Tonight and Plastic Doll lacking any real punch or driving force. Chromatica's highlights feel weaker than better pop songs dropped ... read more

I adore the fusion of metal and pop that Poppy offers on I Disagree. It may be a gimmick, but it's a gimmick that's works ridiculously well, offering incredibly tense moments like the highlight BLOODMONEY, and the hooky Concrete which has the ridiculously hard bar of "bury me six feet deep / cover me in concrete / turn me into a street". It doesn't always work - Fill The Crown is definitely more by-the-numbers and the album suffers from this reliance on the formula a bit, but ... read more

This record takes you on a moving journey and I am completely along for the ride with songs that sound this good.

Perfume Genius' voice is so beautiful, and he lets you know it, going directly from his high register in Jason to a deep threatening voice in Leave.

Perfume Genius seems to be able to do it all, and everything feels ... read more

It is consistently impressive how consistently good Carly Rae Jepsen's music is, both across albums and across songs within those albums. She could have released this project as a completely new album with a new cover, title, everything and it would have been amazing - these are songs that weren't good enough for her previous album.

They definitely sound like they were written during the same time as Dedicated, tackling similar themes of self-love, wanting your S.O. to be more emotionally ... read more

This is easily The 1975's strangest album yet. It sees them venturing down multiple genres, in a sprawling, confusing mess, and overall it doesn't really pan out.

This doesn't sound like an album. Where their previous album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, had a lot of different genres, there they were all revolving around a common theme of how technology colours our relationships. On Notes On A Conditional Form, there is no cohesion. The band start off with a spoken word piece ... read more
