musical taste

favorite bands
Taylor Swift Reputation
I think the New York Times review is pretty spot on in this case. She does an admirable job of fusing other elements of pop to her signature sound. It's also a deeper album than one might suspect from the released singles. "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" has a girl group bounce, "New Year's Day" is a beautiful acoustic ballad, and "Don't Blame Me" as a sparkling R&B groove. Her voice is a bit limited on the album, and I was wishing for more songs like the more Taylor-like "Getaway Car," but overall the album is another big success for Taylor.
Kelly Clarkson Meaning of Life
To me, it is a huge disappointment. She goes for a soul/R&B sound, but the arrangements are cookie cutter and she winds up shouting a lot. Her voice is ruined on what sounds like fake soul. A couple slow burners help the album a bit, but it gets a 2 from me.
Pink Beautiful Trauma
Shania Twain Now
Miley Cyrus Younger Now
I wish the rest of the album was as strong as two last songs and even “Malibu.” But much of Younger Now just
comes out as dull. Going more rootsy isn’t such a good idea when her voice is as monochromatic and lacking in
emotion as it is. Despite what the critics say, the new Shania Twain is much better!
The Killers Wonderful Wonderful
Lights Skin & Earth
It?s not as genre bending as Siberia and sometimes gets lost in pleasant background music, but the many highlights take her electro-pop sound to new levels. Another very enjoyable album from Lights!
