Julyssa’s Music Highlights of 2011
3. Brown Eyed Girls – Sixth Sense
Amy already had this in her highlights and I can’t but also have it in mine. Of the “mainstream/commercial” Korean pop that came out this year, this mini is the only one that is perfect from beginning to end. It’s sexy, it’s funky, it’s different. This is not your typical Kpop album, there is no auto-tune or hooks. It’s powerful, raw and filled with swag.
Fierce bitches all around. Grr!
2. Adele – 21
I know that everyone and their momma are jumping all over Adele. She is being praised left and right, and with good reason. This album is one heck of a powerful one. It has the soul, the painful yet beautiful lyrics and the voice. I don’t think I can say much about this album. Everything and then some has already been said.
Also this song broke me down to tears. The sheer rawness and power? I was crying like a baby.
