Toro y Moi – Anything in Return

Though there seems to be an arrogant overabundance of experimentation underlying many of the tracks on Toro y Moi’s latest release, the fact remains Chaz Bundick is a truly gifted artist.


Thalía – Habítame Siempre

Habítame Siempre is familiar ground, never bordering on boredom and favoring the comfort (and the maturity) that comes with accepting who you are… showing growth into her musical persona, fitting perfectly into the album despite not being a powerhouse vocalist.


Taylor Swift – Fearless

Taylor Swift’s sophomore album delivers crossover pop-country flare all around. But think more Avril Lavigne than Faith Hill… if you know what I mean.


Taeyang – Solar

Solar is a fine album. It has the beats and the melodies that are easy to listen to, but at the end of the day it’s the same Taeyang with the same haircut, same moves and same songs.


Swell Season, The – Strict Joy

Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova are back with The Swell Season’s sophomore album, Strict Joy, which captures that sort of melancholic vibe from the film Once, so it’s very familiar already.
