JELEEL! - Angel From Heaven

Jeleel was hit and miss before Dive In when he started adopting a rage / alternative trap sound
BANKS - The Altar

*I did not listen to or count 27 Hours in my rating as my CD copy doesn't have it due to it being a streaming bonus track*

The Altar is a fucking beautiful album. I love it. BANKS was one of the earliest alternative R&B artists I discovered and a lot of her work including this album is amazing. From more poppy but punchy cuts such as This Is Not About Us, Trainwreck, and Gemini Feed, to the slow bops like Mother Earth, Mind Games and To The Hilt, this album varies very very well.

Wstdyth - MeltWaterPul5e
68
This album is... almost good. Wstdyth is a cloud trap / ""hyperpop"" artist who I discovered early last year and vastly enjoyed their music.

Kenny Loggins - Nightwatch
70
This album has fantastic soft / yacht rock tracks like the title track, Whenever I Call You "Friend", Wait A Little While, Kenny's version of What A Fool Believes and Angelique, but also has these pop rock cuts that I wasn't feeling nearly as much especially compared to those previously mentioned songs. However, the great outweighs the underwhelming decently here.

Nightwatch (9/10)
Easy Driver (7.5/10)
Down 'N Dirty (7/10)
Down In The Boondocks (6/10)
