Coin go for a more synthpop-focused album than their debut LP and the end result is a better album. My favorite tracks are "Talk Too Much", "Lately II" and "Feeling".

The Weeknd Beauty Behind the Madness
The Weeknd Starboy
Overall, another satisfying album from Mr. Tesfaye. I may even prefer this to Beauty Behind the Madness. I recommend Starboy, Party Monster, False Alarm, Rockin', Sidewalks and Reminder.
The White Stripes De Stijl
The White Stripes Get Behind Me Satan
The xx Coexist
Vampire Weekend Father Of The Bride
Walk the Moon Talking is Hard
The highlights are "Different Colors", "Sidekick", "Shut Up and Dance", "Portugal", "Work This Body", and "Spend This $$$".
Weezer The White Album
William Michael Morgan Vinyl
"Missing", "I Met a Girl" and "Lonesomeville" are all great country songs. If you do like your country to be traditional (rather than the "metro country" phase that it's going now), this album is for you.

Bryson Tiller T R A P S O U L
Production and vocal-wise, it's great; it's the lyrics that bring the album down.
Cage The Elephant Tell Me I'm Pretty
Liking this new Black Keys album, but where's the new Cage the Elephant album?
Carrie Underwood Storyteller
COIN Coin
Cold War Kids LA Divine
Darius Rucker Southern Style
Disturbed Immortalized
Drake Views
Views is a decent album, and Drake once again shows that he can both rap and sing well, but the album is overlong.
Dreamers This Album Does Not Exist
Based on the first two singles (Wolves and Drugs), these guys had a lot of potential. But
several of the tracks do not really live up to these songs. The album is decent guitar-
driven indie rock, but besides those greats two tracks, "Lucky Dog" and "Shooting Shadows"
(though "Painkiller", "Sweet Disaster", "Cry out for Me" and "Little New Moon" were good as
well), the remaining few tracks could have been better.
FFS FFS
G-Eazy When It's Dark Out
The first half of the album is pretty good, but it wears out towards the end. Key tracks: Random,
Me, Myself & I, One of Them, Calm Down, Don't Let Me Go, Nothing to Me
Greta Van Fleet From the Fires
Hillsong United Empires
Incubus (USA-CA) 8
Jack U Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack U
James Bay Chaos And The Calm
Linkin Park Living Things
Meek Mill Dreams Worth More Than Money
Once again, what could have been an excellent album was watered down by some poor lyrics. Production and flow is very good though.

Bishop Briggs Bishop Briggs
Bring Me the Horizon That's the Spirit
Coldplay A Head Full of Dreams
Elle King Love Stuff
Five Finger Death Punch A Decade of Destruction
Includes some of their stronger cuts like "Battle Born" and "Far from Home", but also includes a decent amount of their poorer stuff like most of the Got Your Six singles and "Lift Me Up". And their cover of "Gone Away" does not do justice to the original at all.
Future DS2
Jason Derulo Everything Is 4
Joseph I'm Alone, No You're Not
Aside from "SOS (Overboard)" and maybe some other tracks, this album is boring and generic.

Black Veil Brides Set the World on Fire
Catfish and the Bottlemen The Ride
Sophomore slump. Aside from "Twice" and maybe a few other tracks, this isn't very good.
Eminem Revival
Five Finger Death Punch Got Your Six
Another average album from this band. "Boots and Blood" is terrible. If you want to listen to decent rock music, skip this and listen to Highly Suspect's "Mister Asylum" instead.

A snooze fest, "VHS" consists mostly of filler tracks, and only "Renegades" and "Jungle" were outstanding. Not even Imagine Dragons could save this record.

1.5 very poor
Ded FMFY
Ded Mis-An-Thrope
Deuce Nine Lives

"Vacation" is one of the worst hit songs of the year, and it's not like the rest of this is any better.
Fall Out Boy M A N I A
Hinder Extreme Behavior
Lou Reed and Metallica Lulu
Meghan Trainor Thank You
Sleeping With Sirens Gossip
Three Days Grace Outsider
Basically a worse version of Human. Tracks like "Right Left Wrong", "Me Against You" and "The New Real" are just crap.

EDIT: How does this have a better average than that album? I know it's just a 0.1 difference, but still.
XXXTENTACION 17
XXXTENTACION ?
Zac Brown Band The Owl

1.0 awful
6ix9ine DAY69
I did not like XXXTentacion's debut album released last year. That was a masterpiece compared to this.
93Punx 93Punx
AJR The Click
AJR Neotheater
If their intention was to make an album that's worse than The Click, then they've succeeded. Why alternative radio continues to love these guys is beyond me.
Buckcherry Fuck
Corey Feldman Angelic 2 The Core
Doofus Wainwright Are Shit
Five Finger Death Punch And Justice for None
"Sham Pain" is in the running to be one of the worst songs of the year.

EDIT: And it's not even the worst song on this.
Gang of Four Complicit
Jake Paul and Team 10 Litmas
Judah and the Lion Folk Hop N' Roll
There are some decent tracks here like "Forever Always", "Insane" and "Better Man", but the bad tracks outweigh what good these songs have. "Folk-Hop Sound", "Reputation", "We Own the Night" and "Uh-Huh, Yeah!" are all horrendous. The deluxe edition comes with a remix of "Take It All Back" and a bonus track.
Kendrick Lamar DAMN. Collector's Edition
Kid Cudi Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven
Kurt Cobain Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings
There are some good tracks, like "And I Love Her" and "Reverb Experiment", but this as a whole is an album Cobain wouldn't have want to be released. Several of the tracks have Cobain's voice altered greatly, and it doesn't do justice to him. Strangely, the better tracks are the ones without Cobain singing.
me&me Playdough Cooked in Tea
Nostalgia Critic The Wall
Sachiko M Bar Sachiko
Didn't even make it past the five minute mark of this, because what I heard is what I'll hear for the rest of the album. And it's just noise.
Six Feet Under Graveyard Classics IV: The Number Of The Priest
Soggy Butt Queef The Ass-Shank Redemption
Who the hell thought this was a great idea to make this?
