El Camino feels more aggressive, riff-driven, upbeat and loose.
Blink-182 are reunited once again and now they unleash their sixth studio album Neighborhoods.
Block B is a group that stands out in the Kpop world. They are a cool fusion of hip-hop with some Kpop flavor — a combination that sounds weird and impossible, but somehow Block B makes it work.
The Bohemians have taken different genres and blended them to create a wonderfully unique sound that has simply enchanted me.
Bon Iver, Justin Vernon’s main musical project, released his sophomore album amidst a big wave of hype. The result is an elaborate album that takes the listener on a gorgeous emotional journey with a few surprises along the way.
Flamingo starts with Welcome to Las Vegas, an ode to Flowers’ hometown and the track that defines the sound of the rest of the album, which sounds like the b-side from The Killers’ Day & Age, but doesn’t have the same variety and energy of it.
Brian Joo released his third solo project Unveiled. It takes a bit of a different direction than anything he did with Fly to the Sky or on his previous albums.
Femme Fatale marks Britney Spears’ seventh album in her discography since she exploded into pop idol-hood in the late 90s with that sexy school-girl outfit video of Baby One More Time. In here, she reunites with music confidante Max Martin — who was behind Baby One More Time as well as Circus.
Hate myself for saying this, but Circus is not as bad as I thought it could’ve been. The fact is, the album has some pretty catchy tunes, which include the first single Womanizer, Circus, Shattered Glass, Radar, and my guilty pleasure If U Seek Amy.
