Imagine Dragons - Mercury - Act 2
24.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Unlimited Love
28.
65
Genre: Alternative Rock

"Unlimited Love" is a good album with great production. However the main problem is the length, which serves no purpose. It is unnecessarily long.
King Princess - Hold On Baby
29.
65
Genres: Alternative Pop, Soft Rock.

I think one of the main problems for this album is that some songs overstay their welcome, and can feel like fillers. Overall, "Hold On Baby" is a nice album to listen to. And when it's good, it is VERY GOOD.
Camila Cabello - Familia
30.

"Familia" had potential, the idea of ​​making a concept album in Spanish was good. Too bad it didn't focused on where to go, and the execution wasn't very successful. Despite that, it still has some good and enjoyable moments.

Well, this wasn't as bas as I thought it would be.

"These Streets Know My Name" is SO BAD it's so fucking good. That shit made me laugh, I can't believe they let that mf to be out of tune, what the fuck, certified CLASSIC
Avril Lavigne - Love Sux

39.
60
Genre: Dance Pop
Future -  I NEVER LIKED YOU
41.
55

Future's "I NEVER LIKED YOU" is just... bland. It starts good, but as it progresses it gets repetitive, and the lyrics leave somewhat to be desired.

Genres: Dance Pop, R&B
Christina Aguilera - AGUILERA
43.
50
Genres: Latin Pop, Reggaeton
Cazzu - Nena Trampa
45.
50
Genre: Pop Rap, Reggaeton

"Nena Trampa" by the argentinian artist, Cazzu, has a nice production and a few good ideas. But at the end of the day, it is irrelevant and more of the same.
James Bay - Leap
46.
45
Genre: Pop Rock

This album is cute and sweet at moments. Sadly, the same formula repeats over and over again, making the final product to be 43 minutes of grocery shop soundtrack.
GAYLE - a study of the human experience volume one
47.
45
Genre: Pop Rock

There's a lot of hate towards this artist and specially, this EP. Even if the lyrics are dumb asf and this is obviously targeted for a certain type of people, I found some of the melodies to be quite nice. That doesn't means it's decent, it's just... whatever. Irrelevant. I don't see myself returning to this.
Drake -  Honestly, Nevermind
48.
45
Genre: Dance

Honestly, I would 100% listen to this to sleep.
Sebastián Yatra - Dharma
49.
45
Genres: everything

this dude really thought making an album with elements from pop, rock, reggaeton, R&B, flamenco, cumbia and ballads was a good idea. Yes, this album is all over the place, and not precisely in a good way... The only song I truly enjoyed was "Las Dudas". And it was thanks to Aitana, who saved and carried the whole song.

I don't think this album is the biggest crime in music, if it plays I don't mind it. But at the same time, the further away it's from me, the better.
Dixie - a letter to me
50.
45
Genre: Pop

Dixie, the tiktoker/youtuber released her debut album and sadly it is so extremely generic and boring it hurts. Generic doesn't always has to mean bad, there are a few catchy songs like "Not Enough", but man this is so superficial and mediocre it hurts.
