Call me crazy, but this might be their best album. Way more creative and ambitious than I would have expected. Sure the production is a little wacky, but I like the raw feel to it.

Excellent follow up to Common Courtesy. Has some really good heavy songs and is good fun to listen to. The album peaks with "Exposed" and "Reassemble," with the only bad song being "We Got This."

Carly Rae Jepsen Dedicated
This essentially feels like Emotion 2.0 in a lot of ways, which isn't a bad thing. The album
finds itself in a grey area between being well-produced and overly produced though, and
there's maybe one or two songs I could've done without. Those things aside, it's catchy and
fun and a great follow up to Emotion.

It gets off to a slow and kinda weird start, but once it gets going it stays consistently solid throughout. A lot more garage-rock sounding than past releases, with a few songs being reminiscent of bands like The White Stripes. Overall a really impressive album, best songs are Medicine State Garden, Fever Dream, and Great Party.

Definitely the best thing she's ever made (although the bar isn't that high). The 80's sound really works well for her, but there are definitely some duds to be found here too. It feels like she's pandering a little too hard to the 80's crowd by having features from Billy Idol and Joan Jett, and some of the slower songs miss the mark, but the highlights are VERY good.

Credit where credit is due, it legit sounds like Falling In Reverse is trying to become better, and you can really hear it.

The saving grace for this album is that at least it's hard rock that's pretty fun to listen to.

Has a few highlights, but the bulk of the album can't do anything to stand out from any other metalcore album you've heard in the last 10 years.
Issues Black Diamonds
Jimmy Eat World Jimmy Eat World
Jonas Brothers Happiness Begins
Justin Bieber Purpose
Kailee Morgue Here In Your Bedroom
Some glimmers of potential can be found here, but she'll definitely benefit from some experience and maturity with her songwriting.
Katy Perry Smile
I want to like this as much as everyone else here apparently does, but it just doesn't do it for me. Perry has shown signs of maturity and higher quality songwriting, sure, but the album is too consistently uninteresting to keep you hooked. A couple compelling highlights and some newfound maturity isn't enough to keep this from feeling painfully average.
Kesha Animal
Kesha Warrior
Like Moths to Flames No Eternity In Gold
Linkin Park A Thousand Suns
Lmfao Party Rock
Memphis May Fire This Light I Hold
Mike Shinoda Dropped Frames, Vol. 3
Motionless in White When Love Met Destruction
Motionless in White Infamous
Movements No Good Left To Give
Has some stand outs, but does little to impress as a whole. The songwriting is good, but too many songs just don't do anything to remain interesting. As a whole, there's little reason to go back to this one.

An undeniably important album in the world of punk music, but man this hasn't aged well. It's catchy as hell, but the same four chords get pretty exhausting by the end of the album.
Sleeping With Sirens Feel
Sum 41 Underclass Hero
Taylor Swift Red
Taylor Swift Lover
It's better than Reputation, and has a few good songs. But it's too all over the place, like she wants to satisfy everybody, and her songwriting hasn't changed or improved in like 15 years.
Tegan and Sara Hey, I'm Just Like You
The All-American Rejects When the World Comes Down
The Bunny The Bear Afterglow
The Courteeners More. Again. Forever.
The Early November Lilac
The Front Bottoms In Sickness and In Flames
In more ways than one, the production is this album?s downfall. Which is a shame, since there?s some quality tracks here. ?Jerk? and ?Bus Beat? are both some of the most annoyingly repetitive songs they?ve ever made though.
The Killers Battle Born
The Naked and Famous Recover
THICK 5 Years Behind
Painfully average punk-rock album. Hides their lack of any real fresh ideas behind progressive messages that lack any true subtlety or meaning.
Tonight Alive Underworld
Twenty One Pilots Blurryface
Villain of the Story Bloodshot
We Set Signals Ordo
Perhaps one of the most frustrating albums of the year so far. Should have been great; it has some quality hooks and instrumental performances. However, the production is this album's greatest downfall. Autotune where it shouldn't be, vocals drowned out in the mix, and the breakdowns are handled just horribly. Hopefully they can put out a more polished album next time.
Weezer The Red Album
Does something that no other Weezer album does: features some good epics of 5+ minutes, but pretty much everything else sounds like it's on autopilot. Features some of the worst songwriting of Weezer's career up until this point.

It has some fun moments, and I guess is better than it could have been, but it's still bogged down by over-production and recycled beats.
Bring Me the Horizon This Is What the Edge of Your Seat Was Made For
Bullet For My Valentine Temper Temper
Coletta Idealism
Death Spells Nothing Above, Nothing Below
Eleventyseven Basic Glitches
At its worst, it's cringey !3OH3!-esque dance pop with mind-numblingly bad writing, and
at its best it's surprisingly well-made and catchy pop music. Unfortunately, it tips
more toward the bad side, even though there are some notable highlights that keep it
from being fully terrible.

As cheesy as it is, 'Idol' is the only thing keeping this from a lower rating. It may be dumb and outdated, but at least it's fun.

Neck Deep All Distortions Are Intentional
First and last songs are probably the best, but yeesh the production on this is rough. Too much autotune throughout, and there are some effects used that would sound cheesy on mid-2000's dance-pop album. Hopefully the band can bounce back from this obvious misstep.
Ocean Grove Flip Phone Fantasy
Osatia All In Time
Our Last Night Let Light Overcome
Our Last Night Overcome the Darkness
Powerman 5000 The Noble Rot
PVRIS Use Me
Their first major misstep. Starts off well enough, but the fact of the matter is that if it weren't for the middle three songs (Death of Me, Hallucinations, and Old Wounds), which all came out last year, this would be a major disappointment. The non-singles just can't do anything interesting to stay on par with everything else, aside from maybe January Rain.
Queen A Kind of Magic
Relient K The Anatomy of Tongue In Cheek
I don't fully understand the higher average for this album compared to their debut. While this isn't fully awful, it doubles down on the jesus loving and repetition, leaving me feel like they didn't really improve that much at all, despite some of the songs being catchy.
Relient K Relient K
Selena Gomez Stars Dance
Silverstein A Beautiful Place to Drown
Sleeping With Sirens Live and Unplugged
Decent enough music, but the album as a whole feels like little more than a quick paycheck for the band. Also, with the entire album being acoustic, it's not a very exciting listen.

Disturbed Evolution
Echosmith Lonely Generation
A very repetitive, boring album from a band that once showed decent potential. This has some of the most boring instrumentation I've heard in a long time, and every song has some word or phrase that's repeated in the chorus over and over and over again. I wanted to at least enjoy it a little, but even the songwriting is boring and cheesy throughout the whole album.
Ellie Goulding Brightest Blue
Side A: Boring and slow pop-ballads, way more filler than should be legally allowed, and
a few bright spots.
Side B: Repetitive and uninteresting beats, terrible songwriting, and an overwhelming
feeling of desperation to stay relevant in the mainstream pop scene.
This album makes one hour feel like three.
Escape the Fate I Am Human
Escape the Fate Chemical Warfare
This is just a mess. Maybe it isn't as much of a dumpster fire album that it could've been, but this band just doesn't know what it wants to do anymore.
Fall Out Boy American Beauty/American Psycho
Flyleaf Between the Stars
From Ashes To New Panic
This band wants so badly to be the bastard love-child of Hollywood Undead and Linkin Park. They normally say to not judge an album by its cover, but this is one of the rare instances where you can.
Glass Animals Dreamland
Hollywood Undead Swan Songs
Issues Issues
Justin Bieber Believe
Kesha High Road
Linkin Park One More Light
Machine Gun Kelly Tickets to My Downfall
Turns out the album is pretty well represented by the cover: Machine Gun Kelly does his best Blink-182-esque pop-punk impression while maintaining all the same habits he had as a rapper, including horrible writing, over production, and needless filler.

This makes Restoring Force look like a masterpiece. Such a disappointment.
Our Last Night Let Light Overcome The Darkness
A combination of two mediocre EPs - that were already difficult to get through on their own. This has some of the worst songwriting in the genre, and it's just so boring and uninspired. If you've heard any post-hardcore band from the 2010's that have nose-dived in recent years, then you'll know what you're in for.
Panic! at the Disco Pray for the Wicked
Picturesque Do You Feel O.K.?
PVRIS Use Me (Deluxe)
Say Anything Anarchy, My Dear

Sleeping With Sirens How It Feels To Be Lost (Deluxe)
Album's decent enough, but this deluxe reissue is a pretty shameless cash grab. Only one new song?? That's a joke.
Sophie Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides
I just don't get it. Most songs just repeat their title over and over again, and it's just weird for the sake of being weird. And some of the noisier parts are legitimately hard to get through. I don't know, maybe I'll try this again in a year or two and see if anything changes.
Stand Atlantic Pink Elephant
One of the biggest and most disappointing sophomore album nose-dives in a LONG time. Over-produced, poorly written, and a complete lack of flow in the second half make this one of the worst pop-punk albums (if you can even call it that) of the year so far.

With the exception of a few tracks, all the covers are very forgettable. In the end, this compilation album should have never been made.
You Me At Six Suckapunch
I just can't warrant giving this any higher of a rating. It feels like some weird cross between Bring Me the Horizon's 'Amo' and modern Imagine Dragons. Mix in some horrible and bland songwriting, and a ton of confusing production choices, and you have this mess of an album.

Fall Out Boy M A N I A
Yeesh, this album is a mess. It's like they took the few things that they're last two albums got right and replaced them with all the things they're last few albums got wrong. Not one song is memorable in any good way, and this can't help but feel like a waste of talent for Patrick Stump, who still remains a great singer through all this.
FEVER 333 Wrong Generation
This was made with the best of intentions, but let's be real: Jason Butler is a terrible rapper, the lyrics are incredibly repetitive and predictable, and there are no interesting beats or instrumental moments to supplement Butler's grating vocals. Thankfully this wasn't longer, but it's still a slog to get through.
Grant MacDonald Superhot Harry
Green Day Father of All Motherfuckers
It's painfully obvious how little care and effort when into this, and that's probably worse than any of the actual songs on here.

Easily the worst pop album of the year. I don't have the patience to sit down and write a review for this, so here are the cliffnotes: Some of the worst and most cliche songwriting (maybe ever), the same recycled minimalistic trap beats are used OVER AND OVER, and the hooks are honestly just annoying more often than not. The production is slick like any other pop record, but just about none of this actually works in any satisfying way for the listener.

Ticket For Famous Unbroken
Even with me trying to be nice, this album's a chore to finish. Uses every overdone idea from the early 2010's metalcore/post-hardcore scene, but doesn't add anything new or interesting. Maybe this band would've picked up some steam had they released this in 2011 or something.
