| ||Carly Rae Jepsen E MO TION||4.5|
| ||Bea Miller Not an Apology|
Her vocals are mature for her age for sure. The songs are solidly catchy pop songs. There is nothing here that Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson haven't done better though. It is fun, but unremarkable. An artist to watch, however.
| ||Wilco Star Wars||4.0|
| ||Veruca Salt Ghost Notes|
It's very similar to their two great albums - American Thighs and Eight Arms To Hold You. Actually better lyrically with more emotional depth. Production is good, but the songs could have a feeling of more joy - it also sounds a bit similar, but if you listen closely, you can find things you didn't hear before. Great to have them back!
| ||Barenaked Ladies Silverball|
Their knack for creating catchy, strong pop songs is back - though it lacks the uniqueness and wit of when Page was part of the band. Strong album and much better than their last couple albums but not like Stunt, Gordon, Maroon..
| ||Kacey Musgraves Pageant Material||4.5|
| ||Hilary Duff Breathe In. Breathe Out.|
The whistles on "Spark" are one of the most annoying things you will hear in pop music. It doesn't get much
better. Only "Confetti" and "Arms Around a Memory" rise to the level of her sometimes decent bubblegum pop.
The rest is very dull and formulaic, never standing out at all.
What was I expecting? Not much, but I like some pop music so had an open mind
|mvdu They are one of those bands that is "cool" to like but really not enjoyable in my opinion |
|mvdu Modest Mouse not my kind of thing for sure |
