The National The National
The Vaccines What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?
The Vaccines Back in Love City
Good album, maybe just 2-3 songs too long. Album is full of fantastic riffs and definitely
is not musically uninspired. Yes, lyrics are cringey in some places, but also very funny.
The War On Drugs I Don't Live Here Anymore
Granduciel plays it too safe this time. Victim is like a gust of fresh air on this album, absolutely stellar track.

Not the album i was hoping for. Desert Snow, Ava and NYE are fantastic, but other songs are
really forgettable.
Lord Huron Vide Noir
Manchester Orchestra Cope
Maya Hawke Moss
Dissapointing effort from Maya, album has great moments (Therese, Crazy Kid, Mermaid Bar), but there is too much filler. I dont understand why song Blue Hippo was not included, it would be a standout in this album.
OneRepublic Dreaming Out Loud
Parquet Courts Sympathy For Life
Typical grower of an album, might bump after more listens. Pulcinella is great closer though
Pedro the Lion Havasu
Pixies Beneath the Eyrie
Snow Patrol Final Straw
Taylor Swift Midnights
The Lumineers Cleopatra
The Lumineers The Lumineers
The National First Two Pages of Frankenstein
This Isn't Helping saved this from 3.0 for me. Really disappointing effort, it seems that rthey ran out of ideas. I will be surprised if they ever make another 4.5+ album.

Jesus this band, what a snoozefest. If only there were 2-3 songs good like Body Paint, but no it seems like 1 great song per album is enough for them
Bleachers Bleachers
Antonoff should stick to producing, his songwriting sucks big time and this just as bland as you could imagine.

Imagine Dragons ƎVOLVE
Mumford and Sons Delta
Of Monsters and Men Fever Dream
OneRepublic Human
Ryan Tedder is really desperate to make another hit like Counting Stars and it really affected this album in very bad way. Almost every song is terribly overproduced, drums are almost non-existent and guitars can be hardly heard. Had to bump Oh My My from 2.0 to 2.5, because that album at least had some good moments, this has almost none. And 2 bonus tracks (Wild Life and Ships+Tides) are clearly the most interesting, almost same as with The Less I Know and Colors from Oh My My, which just shows that they can produce good songs, but Tedder just sold band out for this pop garbage.
Weezer Pacific Daydream

1.5 very poor
Arctic Monkeys Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino
Arctic Monkeys Suck It and See
Imagine Dragons Origins
Imagine Dragons Mercury - Act 1
This will be even worse than their last album

This is so bad that even Sowing would give it 1.5 at best
Jonas Brothers Happiness Begins
Maroon 5 V
OneRepublic Artificial Paradise
Longest song is 3:29, thats all you need to know about this "album". It is not an album, its just a collection of singles put together pretending to be an album, so they could make money from sales. How low have you fallen, Ryan Tedder....

1.0 awful
Arctic Monkeys Humbug
Imagine Dragons LOOM
jfc this is even worse than Mercury, they are now competing with Maroon5 for the biggest shit ever released from a mainstream band
Maroon 5 Red Pill Blues
Maroon 5 Jordi
Just heard one song from new album and i know that this will be like 1.5 album at max
