ALBUM REVIEW

Vince Staples – Vince Staples

Vince Staples’ new self-titled album is his least compelling project so far, yet its authenticity sheds a light on one of the most important names in today’s experimental hip hop landscape, uncovering an honest self-portrait of the Long Beach rapper.

Spellling – The Turning Wheel

Revealing a shift from her last projects, Cabral seems to fully embrace the baroque pop genre in The Turning Wheel. This is a record filled with orchestral instruments generating intersecting melodies, featuring emotion-evoking, and striking breathy vocals on top of triumphant melodies.

Laura Mvula – Pink Noise

British singer Laura Mvula’s third studio album is the best of her career. Bright and colorful songs explode in lust for sensuality as she also becomes a more aware person about herself and those around her.

Lady Gaga – Born This Way / BORN THIS WAY THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY

Lady Gaga’s 2011 album is a timeless milestone in pop music. Born This Way features the strongest songs of the last decade and shines with its originality. Born This Way’s tenth-anniversary edition is a catastrophe beyond measure. The six new reinterpretations of the songs on the album sound characterless and downright dull and don’t do the original version any favors.

Lucy Dacus – Home Video

On her autobiographical third full-length record, American singer and songwriter Lucy Dacus shows the best compositions and the most intimate sound of her career.

Doja Cat – Planet Her

The third album by the singer by California shows both that she has good production and good writing, and that these two factors are not enough to make a genuinely good and memorable album.
