musical taste

Chart.
favorite bands
Madonna Rebel Heart
Has grown on me a little, but still sounds too desperate to keep up with trends. Instead of expanding the dance
genre limits like on Ray of Light and Confessions, she works with artists like Nicki Minaj. Best are ballads like
""Ghosttown," "Joan of Arc," and "Heartbreak City." There are also nice detours like the folky-dancy "Body Shop."
I recommend the album for fans.

Kelly Clarkson Piece by Piece
Voice is good as always.. lyrics are solid. The 80s tinged light electronic sound doesn't always do her her voice justice through. Often they compete with her vocals. Still worth having but not her strongest.

Garth Brooks Man Against Machine
Have to admit I was disappointed with this album. Sure it's very listenable, but just look at the first song - "Man Against Machine" is fun but does not rival arena rockers such as "Ain't Goin' Down Til the Sun Comes Up." Garth knows how to do a good message song - "We Shall Be Free" was sharp and insightful. But here they often fall flat - "People Loving People" is just plain lazy, and can babies really think the way the baby does in "Mom"? The best songs here have a more old style sound like "Cowboys Forever."

Meghan Trainor Title
She has a strong voice and her girl group meets old school hip hop style produces some classic melodies like "Close Your Eyes." Album cries out for a little more depth though that matches her voice/sound.
