Danny Brown XXX
Danny Brown Atrocity Exhibition
with xxx, danny brown let you know how twisted, demented and dark his mind and thoughts are. with atrocity exhibition, danny simply lets you see how his life is/was through his eyes, creating one of the most vivid and intense depictions of depression i've ever heard in my life, no matter the genre. on "ain't it funny", i was actually feeling ready to go in the streets and start stabbing anyone on sight lmao i lost my shit there. that's how crazy that shit was! as one guy said it, only brown could've pulled this off. an album so overwhelming, so over-the-place, so nasty yet so good. and man, danny brown has to have some of the best bars in the game! this is not only the standout project of the year, it's also one of the best albums i heard rhis decade. this guy is arguably one of the best to ever do it. 5

Brockhampton SATURATION
much like injury reserve's floss last year, here comes a mixtape so good, so left field, so refreshing it might just turn you into a stan of the group that created it immediately! this is the perfect mix between hip hop, pop and heavily auto-tuned tracks, with all the songs delivering in quality, both lyrically and instrumentally. in an overall disappointing year for hip hop (some amazing ones but only a few albums were truly great), this project feels even more essential. you might be turned off by the amateurish, youthful sound going on from start to finish but keep in mind these guys met each other on a forum and the rest is history. for now, go listen to it. 4.5
Brockhampton SATURATION II
brockhampton's saturation ii is an improvement on every level over the first entry from this trilogy (especially in terms of lyrics), giving every member of the group a moment to shine. two amazing albums in a really short amount of time, from a group that contains 12 members or so. that's insane, and everyone should start taking them seriously because they might be starting not only something exciting, but most importantly, something truly important for the hip hop genre. 4.5
Brockhampton SATURATION III
"amazing albums" pole younger doesn't have that lmao but aside from that, this shit is defin their best album to date and a fitting conclusion to this surprising series. the members are playing with each other in way more interesting ways, the sounds keep things cohesive without compromising experimentation, the mixing is better, the flows are improved, the auto tune is only used when needed... everything is improved. amazing year for these guys and i can't wait for the next one!

Frank Ocean Nostalgia, Ultra.
Frank Ocean channel ORANGE
Frank Ocean Blonde
this is a mature, introspective release that will sound average first listen due to the way it builds things up, but it will also open up like a flower after many repeats. it's an album that sounds like it plays better in the background, but if you bring it to the foreground, you'll find how emotion-heavy and powerful it really is. is it better than channel orange? no. is that what people wanted it to be? no. does it stand on its own as another brilliant piece of work from one of today's most compelling artists? hell fuck yea. 4.5+
Freddie Gibbs Shadow of a Doubt
i understand that this album doesn't sound like pinata at all but as far as gangsta rap go, i don't think you will find any other project better than this one in 2015! freddie gibbs just keeps showing how diverse he is as a rapper and how capable he is to appeal to all masses. top 5 material imo! 4.5-

another excellent project by injury reserve. we got a more accessible album this time around, with
some unbelievably catchy hooks, agressive, in-your-face beats and phenomenal sampling all around.
and yet, the project doesn't feel like nothing you've listened before this year, embrassing its
weirdness when needed. seriously, this shit has the best hook game i heard in 2016. 4.5-

Kendrick Lamar Section.80
Kendrick Lamar DAMN.
I can already see people calling this a sell out move from kendrick due to the more trendier sound that can be found throughout the majority of the album. however, that is a really unfair assumption to make, if you take the time to properly digest the conceptual narrative that unfolds all the 14 tracks on display here. kendrick meditates on various themes like his position in the business, the fears that his status infused on him, the depressive feelings that he dealt and still deals with, coincidencies of the past that literally made it possible for him to be where he's at, and other things like politics, religion, society and the trends, etc. all of these themes show both kendrick's wicked personality and his wicknesses, culminating in an album that lets you know who kendrick really, really is. this is a really personal album and some people won't get that because on a surface level, it seems like a very straight-forward project but that isn't the truth at all. even sonically, the production has an astonishing amount of detail and texture to it, with some sounds only being able to be caught if you use really good headphones. the beat switch-ups are also used to change the characters' different moods/feelings, which is a great touch narratively speaking. it is more than enough to cement him as one of the greatest to ever do it. 4.5

so, who said pop punk was dead? it might be, but the menzingers continue to appear out of nowhere to remember us that a piece of it is still well alive. relatable content (especially if you're in your 20's - like me - or 30's), passionate vocals, catchy melodies and memorable hooks all contribute to a very enjoyable body of work. 4.5
The Mountain Goats The Sunset Tree
The Mountain Goats Goths
the mountain goats have always been one of the most consistent folk bands to ever do it, with lyrical concepts that are simply fastinating and folk music with the usage of guitars to create the perfect tone and mood for the concepts to shine through. on goths, and after countless great albums, they finally crafted a near-perfect one, perhaps one of their best since "sunset tree" but with no guitars whatsoever, which is incredible. it's folk music in its purest form for the most part, which also gives the album a theatrical feeling that fits like a glove, as if we were in a theatre. it's musically ambitious, it's funny, it's sad, it's catchy. amazing! 4.5

some tracks feel dated, especially during the middle part of the album, but atcq still returned with some superb and utteely unique songs that instantly resemble their earlier work. they didn't lose a bit of their identity, and that's the most important factor. the first couple of tracks are really good, and for the most part, this is both a welcome return and a good way to say farewell to one of the most prolific hip hop groups ever. 4+

Algiers Algiers
Algiers The Underside of Power
while lyrically, their last album felt more focused and well-writen, on this new project right here, things get wider and bigger and even messier and sparse as a result. the music surrounding it, however, always feels epic, flawless and absolutely commanding and it's hard not to fall in love with the whole experience, even with its shortcomings. 4-

Bruno Mars 24K Magic
i'm so wowed by this release. i never really enjoyed bruno's early work, mainly because his lyrics were absolutely sappy and cringy af and the production itself was just your typical mainstream ballad bs. here, bruno continues to embrace that funky sound we first heard with the incredible uptown funk and honestly, this sound works 100% in his favor. the lyrics are more well thought out as well and the vocals are simply amazing when they need to be. one of the best pop albums of 2016. 4-

you either accept the path dr. dre took in terms of his approach to hip hop or you don't. if you're expecting the chronic part 2 or even something remotely similar to 2001, you're going to be disappointing. otherwise, there's no reason for you to dislike this project.. dr. dre brought the best out of everybody and made them spit great bars over dark, moody and agressive beats to create what is easily his most mature, darker album to date. not his best and far from a classic but it's a damn great return from the doctor! 4-

Jay-Z 4:44
one of the worst soundoff pages in the history of sputnikmusic yet, considering how people keep giving this album a 1 only because it was released on tidal. what we have here is a really deep look into the life of a hip hop character who quickly started to lose momentum inside the game. however, jay-z seems to be pushing himself as hard as he can to out himself in the spotlight again and quality-wise, he definitely did it on here. brilliantly sampled beats, z's sharpest bars since the black album, great content, short in lenght and straight to the point. the only glaring flaw here is his lack of energy as far the delivery goes. he lacls the spark he once had and some songs simply don't reach their full potential because of that. aside from that, this is definitely his best album in a looong, long while. 4

he needs to improve on the hooks and there are a few weak songs towards the end of the album but overall, this is boom bap shit done right! you can't go wrong with joey but i feel like this isn't the best thing he can do. i'm pretty sure he can drop something much stronger than this but only time will tell. for now, this will do it! 4
Joey Badass ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$
joey continues to embrace the old school boom bap style but now, he also brought a more contemporary, melodic sound to the table and surprisingly, things work really well. the content is there (more politically charged), catchy hooks, all the guests fit like a glove, the prod does its job for the most part. i can't say this is a step forward in relation to his previous effort since the first half is a bit too repetitive sonically speaking and the album definitely lacks tracks as amazing as, let's say, paper trails or christ conscious but still, great effort. 4-

definitely a very interesting ep to listen to, especially because it feels like an expansion of to pimp a butterfly, but i just can't ignore the fact that some of these tracks feel a bit unpolished and incomplete. kendrick is a perfectionist, so listening to this unmastered ep is a bit weird coming from him.. can't lie! somehow, this ep manages to sound better than most albums released throughout the year. worth a few spins for what it is! 4-

lorde finally proves people that she is much more than a one-trick-poney by releasing melodrama (not much in the way of melodrama, ironically), a fascinating yet raw look into her messy relationships and what she has learned, or not, from them. lorde is much more mature, not only lyrically but vocally as well and even in terms of taking more risks musically, which more than often pay off. she still has that youth very present here, though, which sometimes lights a little spark in the middle of all the darkness. writer in the dark liability and supercut are easy standouts. 4

i wasn't really looking forward to this album, even though i really enjoyed the waters but i simply hadn't put much attention into the singles he had dropped prior to this release. i gotta say, i was really impressed by the end result! there aren't many artists tackling the concept of love in the way mick did here, and that's easily the strongest aspect of this album. the concept is wonderfully realized thanks to jenkins' always-on-point lyricism and interesting skits that give another layer to the project (the glitches can become annoying, though). the beats are also fantastic and varied: in one moment, you're listening to a really chill track and after a few minutes, you see yourself listening to a kaytranada assisted jam that's probably the best track this album has to offer (communicate, btw). all in all, extremely good follow-up to the waters that actually plays like a sequel in more ways than one if you pay close attention. 4

Mount Eerie A Crow Looked At Me
sonically, there's nothing here that will make you want to comeback to it, and the same thing can obviously be sad about the content of the album, which is devastating and profoundly sad to say the least. however, this isn't the type of album you keep coming back to multiple timea, despite how good it is. it's an experience, it belongs to a moment during life, and you come back to that experience when you feel like tou should. 4

Perfume Genius Too Bright
Perfume Genius No Shape
hadreas continues to get better with each project, with no shape being his best effort to date. it's not just about how he carries the concept with no missteps, but also about how he uses subtelty and you tenderness to unfold each story and how different rythms (or the lack of them during the slower moments) play a huge role at that too. one of the best pop efforts of the year so far. 4+

if you're expecting pusha t to talk about things that have nothing to do with his drug wealth, you're gonna be disappointed but if you've been on board with him for a while, you're gon love this project for sure! the not so good "my name is my name" wasn't nearly as good as it could've been because it lacked focus and direction. on "darkest before dawn" however, you won't find those completely unecessary fillers anymore. he's dropping bars after bars about his favorite topic, trying to make us believe how nasty and unrelenting is drug life is, two words that very well define this project. well worth the 30 minutes! 4

not up there with the other two albums imo it might feature better content but the hooks and the prod aren't so creative this time around. having said that, that's only compared to their previous efforts because on its own, it's pretty much another bombastic, entertaining yet thought provoking album from a duo that continues to try to be amongst the best. 4+

Ryuichi Sakamoto Async
sakamoto created a very minimalistic project that is actually focused on everyday life events that most people ignore, considering how vulgar, minimal and on-first-glance banal they seem to be. however, from his perspective, after seeing his life on the line, these little things are huge, important, meaningful, spiritual, powerful. if we choose to disappear from the stressful world we live in and instead immerse and tune in to async, we can see that perspective too, and it's an impressive one to look through. 4

SZA Ctrl
i wasn't looking forward to this album mainly because her last mixtapes didn't show anything exciting or refreshing thay made her stand out from the competition. her stories weren't interesting and were told in a vague way, the vocals weren't powerful enough to make the songs come to life. however, on her debut album, those issues are completely gone! the songwriting is raw and honest, the vontent is dark and sexual, the production always packs a ounch and do her vocals when needed. only a couple of tracks like "go gina" don't really offer much of anything to the concept of the album. everything else is gold. great debut from sza and a huge progression from her mixtapes to this! 4

this is what the atrocious cherry bomb should've been if ot had been properly mixed and taken more seriously. you still have the odd shit that made tyler who he is nowadays but it never really takes the front seat and allows the more mature moments to stay in equality. the production is amazing this time around and it consistently gives every track what they need, wether it's a banger or a dreamy typa shit. by far his best project to date, and might be even better than his mixtape bastard. 4-

along with this french duo, blu creates some of his. most enjoyable and entertaining music in quite a while. his projects had great lyricism but suffered heavily from bad prod and some really awful mixing. none of those problems are here, and while the lyrics aren't that memorable, they are still decent and the beats are A1. 3.5

Clarence Clarity SAME
this new ep has a really fresh concept that more than makes it worth checking out (especially considering the track itself is pretty good) but after one or two listens, there's. no reason for you to come back to it and listen to the same track over and over again. you can perfectly listen to the version you like the most, though. clarence continues to experiment, and i love that he's creating ep's like this just to further experiment before he drops another killer album like last year's stellar project. 3.5-

Coldplay Parachutes
Common Finding Forever
Common Black America Again
ri didn't really enjoy any album he dropped after the magnificent "be" and i was kinda worried about this release but looks like all he needed was something inspiring to make him want to push the envelope again. without preaching, common goes deep about the most noticeable social issues of nowadays through most of these tracks, bringing a more soulful sound to celebrate the black culture. its appeal is more limited this time around mainly because of that, though. 3.5-

Deftones Deftones
Deftones Gore
by no means one of deftones' best albums but incredibly, it still shows progression. how is it possible for a band with almost 30 years to keep evolving? especially considering they never bring the same sound again, they are always renewing themselves but of course, without throwing out their uniqueness. gore is another brilliant creation from one of the most consistent bands ever, regardless of genre. amazing! 3.5+

d.r.a.m embraced his goofiness like he should've done but without putting it in the way of the music itself. he actually managed to show how versatile he can be with his voice, which is surprisingly decent, as he easily waves from bangers like the thugga assisted track to r&b jams like "sweet va breeze", without ever leaving the funny side of his music. i was expecting the album to be bad, but it ain't! it's actually a surprisingly confident, positive debut. tracks like cute and wifi weren't needed, though. 3.5+
dvsn Sept. 5th
the content and lyrics always run around the same idea and it can defin get stale for some people but thanks to passionate, powerful vocals and beautiful melodies, things never get boring and this is one of the most interesting r&b debuts in a while. definitely the best one coming out from ovo imo but they still miss something unique to distance themselves from the other members of the group. the biggest issue ovo is facing right now, actually. 3.5-

if you're searching for an optimistic, uplifting album celebrating the details in life we often miss, this is for you. the rhythms are very enjoyable. jens lekman continues to perfect his sound, even tho he's not exactly bringing it to new heights. in fact, things get kinda shaky at times, especially production-wise when some sounds simply don't mash well with others. 3.5

the album is very repetitive and overly sentimental at its core but you can't deny how sincere and personal he's getting on all of these tracks! he's throwing everything at us all at once and many of those things are very relatable. if you like that stuff, this one is a must listen. 3.5-

hopefully, this is the project that will put him in the spotlight. the beats are so different from each other, with the celestin often going from funk to jazz, yet 99,9% never feels like a mess of an album. in the end, everything comes together perfectly, creating a very excentric, exciting, vibrant experience worth repeating again and again. excellent! 3.5+

mac still has that monotone voice but he's bringing more flows, lots of energy and dope bars this time around, quickly making me forget about he's more obvious flaws. i'm not a fan of him yet but this is a damn solid project, easily his best one to date. a tad too long, though! 3.5
Marianas Trench Astoria

ScHoolboy Q Habits and Contradictions
ScHoolboy Q Oxymoron
ScHoolboy Q Blank Face LP
schoolboy q has been trying to create a great album for a while now, but he certainly failed to do so every single time he tried. habits and contradictions never really went in after the haunting and dark sacrilegious, while oxymoron lost points with too many boring, uninspired club bangers that didn't have to be there at all. to be honest, this album right here faces many of the same problems the others had, even if this one is a tad better. his label made him put that overtime track as well as the track with candice, which are absolutely horrible tracks that don't even fit in the overal feel of the album. this project is a bit too long too, could've easily been cut out to like 60 minutes. 3.5+

The Avalanches Wildflower
it's obviously not the game changer that their last album was, and wildflower overtsays its welcome more than a little bit but the first half is very strong, showing that even after all these years, their identity is still very vivid. while far from a masterpiece, it's definitely worth a listen. 3.5

The Weeknd Trilogy
The Weeknd Beauty Behind the Madness
yeah you might call this a sell out move but as far as sell out moves go, this one worked quite well! it doesn't have the atmosphere that his first three mixtapes had but as a pop album, it doesn't many things right! 3.5+
The Weeknd Starboy
if you already embraced the fact that he's been pursuing new sounds for a while now and each album brings a new chapter for him and his music, you are bound to be surprised here. at 18 tracks, things could've gone south rather quickly but in fact, the album starts off on a strong note and ends itself perfectly too. up until the interlude with lana, everything was snapping big time. ironically, stargirl feels completely out of place musically speaking and it's also absolutely undercooked in its creation, fading away when it was getting remotely nteresting. it's a filler. things do pick up again with the excellent sidewalks and the momentum kept going until attention came in. things really got to a low point here, with the track being both too slow and not enough exciting for it to work. with the other two tracks right next to it, things got even worse. nothing without you is easily the most generic track here and the track with future, while decent, ends wirh an awful, pointless verse from him that adds nothing but lenght to an already overlong album. thankfully, the album ends with two fantastic tracks, die for you and the feel-good feel it coming, which opens up things for abel as far as his future goes, both artistically and in real life. the album could and should've been shorter, with those fillers hurting the overall quality of the album, but it still worked for the most part, with the standouts being really huge standouts and saving it from being just a merely decent effort. 3.5+

Twenty One Pilots Vessel
Twenty One Pilots Blurryface
the album is a bit all over the place, at least sonically speaking, but most of these songs are so emotional, so relatable, so uplifting, so gratifying to listen to that i honestly don't care. for people who relate to what they're saying, you'll feel like you're watching them live. 3.5-
Ty Dolla Sign Free TC
i'm in love with the first part of the project but the second half is nowhere near
as good. i will have the first part on heavy rotation for a while with tracks like la and horses on the stable taking the spotlight but man, this could've been much better! 3.5-
Ty Dolla Sign Campaign
ty dolla focused on what it did best on free tc (the first half was amazing, only ruined
by the second half desired by his label) and the results could hardly be any better for
him. the beats have a lot of texture and layers to them, and ty sounds really good
over them. there are really good bangers like the track with quavo, but more laid back
moments like no justice, r&b, stealing and juice are when he shines, though. however,
the concept wasn't executed in the best way and the lyrics can get repetitive but they
don't ruin the experience at all. 3.5

great concept but unlike in summertime, things don't come together all that well by the end of the project. loving the unorthodox beats for the most part tho, defin complement vince's delivery as well as the topics being tackled here. not everything works but ep's are made for experimenting, though. it's nice to see vince going out of his confort zone to try new things before he creates his next, hopefully great album. 3.5-

creates something more original next time. it
worked this time around, might not work next
time, much like his last projects. 3.5-
Young Thug BEAUTIFUL THUGGER GIRLS
young thug finally tries something new with his music while keeping things inside his zone and the end result is one of his most consistent and focused projects yet. the harmonies and melodies are memorable, the beats are insanely textured, and while the lyrics are still nothing to csre about, they don't dimished the album's overall quality. 3.5
Your Old Droog Kinison
your old droog showing that he's far from being a nas copycat with this rock influenced hip hop album. 3.5
Your Old Droog Packs
definitely a solid effort but it could and should've been way better. the skits brought absolutely nothing to the table and the interlude pales in comparison to the rest of the tracks. these shortcomings create pacing issues that really damage an otherwise great project, full of dirty, nasty and creative beats, bars on top of bars and droog's exceptional mc skills. plus, why no "42"? why no "vigilantes" instead of "help"? why? 3.5-

Chance the Rapper 10 Day
Charli XCX Vroom Vroom
couldn't disagree more with the majority of the scores being given to this ep. people are probably shitting all over the tape because it's from charli xcx, who dropped a very overrated, underwhelming pop album two years ago but now that she joined forces with sophie, things got waaaay more interesting, with all these glitchy, dynamic beats fitting charli's energy perfectly. terribly underrated imo, even if i agree that it never reaches its full potential. 3+
Charli XCX Number 1 Angel
charli xcx keeps bringing pc music and her hyped vocals to create some of the weirdest mainstream pop music you are likely to hear these days and for the most part, it bangs but bro, the lyrics are awful. it's a really huge minus for me. 3

i've been a clipping fan for a while, with clppng being one of my favorite albums this decade, but i just can't get into this album. the concept is great, but it's an issue. it compromises both the rapper's work and the experience musically speaking. it might make up for a nice first listen, but there's nothing here that justifies a second, or multiple listens. there are some good moments, of course, but everything in between those moments become a slog to listen to after a while. 3+

Eric Biddines The Local Cafe
Eric Biddines shows a lot of potential on this mixtape, with decent lyricism, really well produced tracks that flow well into each other and a certain uniqueness when it comes to his delivery. it's feels a bit too long and his nasal voice sounds weird at times, tho. 3+
Erykah Badu But You Caint Use My Phone [Mixtape]
I understand what she's trying to do on this mixtape and it's definitely fun to listen to in spots (and that last track, great). However, things don't always work and the end result is far from memorable or consistently entertaining, at least as far as i'm concerned. still, this is a free mixtape, so it's worth giving it a spin! 3

FKA Twigs EP
Flume Skin
the sound he creates is still compelling to listen to but it feels by the numbers instead of feeling like the dynamic, fluid experience that his debut was. 3-
Flume Skin Companion
the sound of it is undeniably beautiful but it has been done before and in a better way. there's nothing fresh here. 3
Flume Skin Companion ll
a large improvement over the last ep. this one is all over the place, with all the 4 leftover tracks being completely different from each other, but each one of them shows flume's versatility and they certainly have quality. the inclusion of vocals in some of these tracks was pointless tho, especially on the weekend. the vocal changes on depth charge, not so sure about that either. enough and fantastic are indeed fantastic. 3+
Foo Fighters In Your Honor
Foo Fighters Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
French Montana MC4
not nearly as bad as i thought it was going to be, considering how terrible montana is as a rapper. however, i enjoyed some of these tracks not because of him, but both due to the fact that most of these beats were really good and, most importantly, the guests did a really good job, especially on that track with jada. 3

if you enjoyed his last two mixtapes, there's no reason for you not to enjoy this. i found it to be a bit too repetitive for my taste. 3
Future DS2
i like some of these tracks and i wouldn't mind listening to all of them individually but as an album, it leaves much to be desired. still bumps. 3+
Future FUTURE
for once, i can understand what future is saying. that's the best thing he brought to this tape, an improved delivery. some of the beats are crazy too and the project definitely contains some of future's best tracks to date, like poa and mask off. however, at over 1h with content this repetitive, there's no way you gon listen to this without a lot of pauses throughout. it drags and the quality is more questionable towards the back end of the album. a huge improvement over his last shitty mixtapes, but he needs to keep things short next time. 3-
Future HNDRXX
much like his previous effort, i was enjoying it until i wasn't. at 17 tracks, things start to get stale after a while. however, this r&b side is actually much more interesting than what future showed us last week but quantity doesn't mean quality and once again, the whole package is a bit damaged due to too many tracks. 34 in one week is way too much! i can't ignore that hndrxx is an improvement in relation to all of future's pos-ds2 releases tho, by bringing honest, more introspective songs and a flow that i can actually understand. solid! 3

Gallant Ology
gallant shows a lot of talent when it comes to lyrics and his vocals definitely bring those lyrics to life, painting a vivid picture of what's talking about. there are room for improvement and i felt like the project overstayed its welcome a little bit but this was a surprise, to be honest. gallant is in a league of his own, and it will be up to people to decide if he deserves to be in the spotlight. he's good! 3+

Gucci Mane and Future Free Bricks
Harry Styles Harry Styles
harry styles failed to bring memorable lyrics to the table and he didn't fully create his own identity with this album, wearing his inspirations on his sleeves perhaps a bit too much at times, but... having said that, pretty much every song on here is rock solid, filled with impactful vocals from start to finish, more-than-competent production, catchy melodies and even though the album is jammed with different genres, it doesn't feel like a mess, flows well and, more importantly, it shows styles' versatility. now, there's a loooot of improvement to do but for a debut album, well done! 3+

ILOVEMAKONNEN ILOVEMAKONNEN2
better than the first entry imo i'm loving the harmonies on the track "forever" and the other tracks are dope too but man, even though his oddity as an artist gives his music a certain appeal, it also makes it tricky to enjoy it at times! i still like what he did on this ep but it certainly isn't for everyone! you gotta understand what he's doing in here, otherwise you're gonna hate this project. 3+

Isaiah Rashad The Sun's Tirade
i was anticipating this album a lot since cilvia demo was easily one of my projects of 2014. laid back production, amazing bars and isaiah going in out of nowhere on tracks like modest and soliloquy made it a standout of that year. so, my expectations were sky high for this one! did it deliver? eeeh, not all the way through imo. my biggest problem with this new album is that not only didn't he show any improvements in relation to his last project; he actually downgraded in many aspects. first, there a lack of wow moments unlike on the first tape. everything sounds too familiar across the whole thing, to the point that mid-way through i was actually bored of it. the sun's tirade is too mellow for its own good, and unfortunetly, the beats aren't the only thing creating that problem. worse than that is the fact that rashad feels like he's not even trying in most of these tracks, especially in "a lot". it sounds as if he was struggling to say his last words before dying. to make things even worse, the writing is not that good either. most of the time, he doesn't get too deep into the stuff he's tackling. he doesn't allow us to go inside his world in order to know him better. having said that, the album have some really good moments, especially during its first half. the singles were hot, just to begin with, and then we have shit like "wat's wrong" (kendrick delivering an amazing verse) and tity & dolla (once again, the guests doing their job). but these moments are not that great. there are no standout tracks! huge disappointment. 3+

JID The Never Story
good debut album that primarily serves as a window to show off his potential. it's flawed, especially when it comes to the lyrics and his extremely nasal delivery but he does have a nice flow, a decent singing voice and a really good ear for production. not bad at all. 3+
JID DiCaprio 2
when people proclaim you the next kendrick lamar, the next big thing, you better show you're up to that bar, even if it's not your fault that there's so much hype around you. jid obviously set high expectations following everything he did on the last couple of years, and i really thought he was going to give a huge step forward from his last mixtape, but what he got here, sadly, is just a bunch of cool beats and flows, some dope bars here and there and not much else, really. the middle portion of the album is very slow-paced and forgettable, the features don't bring anything fresh with them, the bars hide what is essentially a thematically poor project... this isn't progression, and jid failed miserably at setting himself apart from his peers. that's what his goal was.
Jidenna The Chief
nice mix between nigerian's rhythmic music and contemporary r&b, hip hop and dancehall. it's too all over the place and some tracks are awfully generic (trampoline is terrible) but you know, it has some gems (bambi) and it's a really fun project overall. 3

Vince Staples Big Fish Theory
vince staples continues to further push the boundaries of his music style and here, while doing so, he actually pushed some hip hop boundaries as well by bringing a really fresh sound to the table with the help of flume and, especially, sophie. mixing west coast beats with afro rhythms while throwing some minimalistic sounds to the mix to make for a more layered adventure musically, big fish theory's is probably the most ambitious and rewarding project since atrocity exhibition. some people will be thrown off by this sound though, so approach it at your own risk. great concept too. 4+

i really want to like this album. there are some great moments here and there and zayn's vocals never allow boring beats to completely ruin a song. the problem is that he borrowed too many elements from other artists - frank ocean, miguel, usher, nerd, xx and many more - and it lacks the personality needed for a debut album to truly shine. the lyrics and content can run a bit stale towards the end too. i see potential though, so i'm expecting him to drop something way better in a couple of years from now, much like timberlake did. nice debut but not what it should've been.. 2.5

Drake Views
after the leaked tracks prior to this ralbum's release, i was afraid that we were rgonna get take care part 2. in other rwords, those tracks made me feel like we rwere about to get some dope tracks in the rmiddle of straight bs. i was praying that rviews would prove me wrong. it didn't. rthis exactly what i was expecting it to rbe, probably even worse. most of this rtracks are skippable and not something you rwould go for if you're trying to improve, rto show progression. the first half is reasily the best, wavy and more personal, rand it defin has its good moments, despite rsome really cringy struggle bars. the rsecond half is terrible tho, embrassing rthe side of drake that will never be good. rthe title track is the only redeeming one, rprobably the best track off of this shit, rreminding me of the best moments off riyrtitl. considering the amount of time we rhad to wait for this shit to drop, this rshit didn't deliver all the goods. it's rworth a few spins but nothing more. 2.5+

this duo is an interesting one. the visual music they try to create is definitely compelling and unique, but only when it works. when it doesn't - quite often - things get really cringy. plus, i don't know why they sometimes use auto-tune on the vocals, since it doesn't add anything. it does exactly the opposite. weird choices that compromise the quality of the album a lot. like i said, interesting duo but they have yet to create an interesting album. 2.5+

40 minutes of music that sounds exactly like his other tapes but with even less
appeal. i'm failing to see him evolving. it's worth listening, especially for

he's very one-dimensional and predictable af. he can be creative at times but
dropping tapes back and forth? that's destroying his songcraft skills imo. 2.5+

flawed af, with all the problems debuts suffer from. overlong, messy, badly writen, he gets carried by the production pretty much all the way and you can clearly see some biting as well (late kanye, anyone). however, the album is also packed with some really memorable moments and like i said, the production makes up for the majority of the mistakes here. i was expecting an awful album but this is not that bad tbh. not even bad. not good either but solid enough for me to care about jaden now. giving this shit a 1 lowkey exposes you as a guy who don't always listen to the albums you give a rating to tho i mean, you can dislike this ofc but in no way the album is awful all the way through.

asap ferg tried to step out of his confort zone, the trap game, to show is full power in terms of versatility. while he managed to pull it off with some impressive flows and energy to spare, the tracks rarely make sense when we try to join them together to create the bigger picture. the message got lost along the way and, worst of all, some of these tracks aren't even good as standalone tracks (world is mine; strive). there are hints of something truly great here (psycho is defin one of his best tracks so far) and the harder tracks still hit (new level, let it bang) but something went really wrong. the middle portion is good but the album truly starts and ends in a rather false note. this is not a bad album, but it's definitely one of the most disappointing ones so far this year. 2-

shit that made him one of the whackest acts in current hip hop. sadly, that's exactly what you're
going to get here. either that or tracks like owe which resemble drake waaay too much. even eminem
was badly implemented here, with him being way over the beat to the point it sounds like a
freestyle (dope rapey verse tho lol). the only legit good track here outside of the singles imo
was the one with migos, sacrifice. that shit was fire, man. why can't he stay in that fuckin lane
instead of being in the cornfield all the time? 2.0

Future and Young Thug Super Slimey
Gods of Mount Olympus Gods of Mount Olympus
Gorillaz Humanz
my biggest problem with this album is that pretty much every track doesn't feel like a gorillaz one. they lack identity. however, even if they had their identity well defined, the album would have been just average, anyway. the concept is tepid, the lyrics don't really connect that well with each other, the runtime is way too long, some of the guests don't do anything special to justify their presence and even the production feels lazy more often that not. it's sort on standouts as well. it has a couple of good songs, but where are the great ones like we had on previous albums? 2+
Grace VanderWaal Perfectly Imperfect
for her age, she has an undeniable talent to both sing and write but musically, she's still a long way to go if she wants to be remembered by the masses year after year. there are countless voices similar to hers and backed up with much better production. here, all the ballads sound exactly the same. 2+

Gwen Stefani The Sweet Escape
Incubus If Not Now, When?
J Dilla The Diary
J. Cole 4 Your Eyez Only
not only a huge disappointment but also one of the most disappointing albums released by a big
artist this year, regardless of genre. wether he's stealing a beat from an artist and doing it
no justice at all or doing his awful singing game that had already hurted his last
project, he's once again showing that he's nothing more than a painfully average rapper
with high aspirations. good ideas alone don't take you too far. well, he still went
platinum with no features so, good for him... 2+

Kings of Leon Mechanical Bull
Korn Untitled
Krizz Kaliko Go
i understand what he's trying to do and he surely have the best of intentions with all these personal themes and all but i just don't think his voice his layered enough to pull most of these tracks off and the intrumentals are often very basic and bland. i'm not feeling the lyrics as well, he never gets too deep inside the topics he tackles. not bad but i just think he left too much to be desired, there's a lot of room for improvement imo. 2+

considering how good the tracks that he keeps posting on youtube are, i really thought his project was going to be something fucking amazing. he's good at telling great stories, he often hops on dope prod and his technical skills are great. sadly, what we got here was a 90 minutes long tape with generic beats that almost sound like bad rip offs of iyrtitl's material, uninteresting content, stories that don't deserve to be told for 7 minutes straight, awful hooks and the list goes on and on. really disappointing release. 1.5

a very left-field release from tde, and easily the worst album to come out from there too. the vocals are too damn muddy, baffled by the production more often that not. that brings us to another huge problem. lance tried to go for some abstract typa shit with the overall sound, but that decision backfired him. awful transitions from track to track, skits that don't add nothing to the narrative. all in all, a mess of an album. tbh, this sounds more like a bunch of snippets rather than a full lenght album. i came into this album expecting to learn why tde brought him to the team, but now i'm even more confused. oh, and no, he's not jay rock.. 1.5+

machine gun kelly tries to do pretty much every genre he doesn't know shit about while incorporating them with a genre he kinda knows about (does he?), and the result is one of this year's most painful albums to listen to this year, regardless of genre. 0

Meghan Trainor Title
Meghan Trainor Thank You
this is another confirmation that she's one of pop's lamest female artists to ever exist. trying to emulate britney spears from start to finish really wasn't a good idea. she just can't pull that off. so bad.. 0

Mustard 10 Summers: The Mixtape Vol. 1
Nav NAV
pretty much every track sounds the same, showing little to no versatility when it comes to crafting music. that joint with the weeknd is the only standout here, and mostly because of abel. everything else feels like copy & paste. 1-
Nelly M.O.
Nickelback Here and Now
Of Mice and Men Cold World
it's not that their core sound used to be good or anything but this is easily the bottom of the barrel for the band. atrocious vocals, indiferent lyrics and intrumentals that lack any kind of impact make for an album that will probably kill this band for good. 1-

somehow, he manages to get worse and worse with each new release. if that's what he's trying to pull off, i applaud him. 0

SBTRKT Save Yourself
i'm not sure what they were trying to accomplish here, borrowing songs from other artists like the-dream and stuff but i didn't enjoy the idea at all and whatever message they were trying to throw at us didn't land. i'm confused and it seems like i'm not the only one! 1
Selena Gomez A Year Without Rain
Shawn Mendes Illuminate
shawn mendes simply lacks personality to set himself apart from the competition, with predictable lyrics and vulgar production not helping at all. 1+

Tech N9ne The Storm
at 32 tracks, you already know half of those will be filler. think again, because every track here sounds like filler. easily his worst project to date. solely for fans and even then, i'm not so sure. 1-

as cheap and generic as you can get from this genre. you have listened to this by the numbers shit on the radio over and over again by countless different artists and duos. 1-
The Chainsmokers Memories...Do Not Open
easily the worst project of its kind this decade so far. the tracks here are sooo by-the-numbers, so predictable, so tepid. it only exists so they can keep breaking stupid recorxs in the hot 100. 0

the first contender for worst album of the year. one of the most cringy attempts to stay relevant in a while, really. 0+
Troy Ave Major Without a Deal
Troy Ave Nupac
you can tell right away this album will be bad simply because of that awful title. turns out, the project is just as bad as its title suggests. amateurish lyricism (courtesy of troy), predictable beats, sluggish performances. not worth anyone's time. 1
Ty Dolla Sign Airplane Mode
Tyga The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty
Tyrese Black Rose
Wale SHINE
wale continues to not focus on what he's actually good at, and the results are obviously mediocre, much like his last couple of albums. his delivery is boring af from start to finish, the beats are a snoozefest, most of the features don't bring the so much needed energy (even travis scott). not a good effort at all and it features some of the worst tracks he has ever done. 1-
