Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of August 17, 2018.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.  As our staff post reviews of these albums, links will appear below the artwork (if we remember…) so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


Featured Release

Sweetener [Explicit]

Ariana Grande: Sweetener
Genre: Pop
Label: Republic Records

The queen of pop has returned.  It’s her first album since 2016’s breakthrough Dangerous Woman, as well as the horrid Manchester Arena suicide bombing that killed 22 at a concert on May 22, 2017.  The singles released in advance of Sweetener have fared quite well, with “No Tears Left to Cry” and “God Is A Woman” in particular garnering positive feedback.  Regardless of whether or not Sweetener lives up to the milestone that was its predecessor, it’s great to see Ariana back in the game after events that may have paralyzed other artists with fear.  Listen to the embedded track below to find out if “God Is A Woman”:

Listen to “God Is A Woman”:

The new Clanton looks to be a “real” follow-up to %100 Electronica unlike the ESPRIT album from last year, looking forward to it.
