Where the north London rapper’s last album, ‘Stillness In Wonderland’, was a dense concept album that required the listener’s conscious perseverance, this is a short and sharp collection of bangers that combines fantastic, punchy lyrics ( I’m a boss in a fucking dress! ) with golden-era hip-hop production. This is the best rap record of the year so far. Foals – ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 1’. Foals, 2019.
X – Los Angeles (1980) X’s debut Los Angeles set the template for The John Doe and Exene Cervenka Show, the great punk soap opera of the 1980s. Falling in and out of love and hate over every album, they gave us every detail of every booze-fueled breakdown, and always left room for bitchy asides about the rest of the poseurs and degenerates trying to make the scene in the shadow of Hollywood. Billy Zoom’s maximum surf and rockabilly riffs always helped made sure the desperation never felt like a drag. The album laid a foundation for lyrical innovation for everything that followed. 77. Lou Reed – The Blue Mask (1982) Common threads aren’t easy to find in Lou Reed’s career-this is a point of pride for the man who hired Metallica to stinkbomb 2011 after a seven-year studio sabbatical.
Far far the best album of the 80s in fact the best album of all time. I'm a primary metalhead, but Thriller was THE first and only song and album that caught my attention; opening the world of music into my little world and setting the foundation on my perception of great music. So if it weren't for Micheal Jackson, I wouldn't be a Pantera fan. - MinistryMonster. This is my all time fave album.
The best albums of the year so far come from Janelle Monae, Cardi B, Kali Uchis, Sleep, Kasey Musgraves, Julian Casablancas and the Voidz, The Weeknd. Negro Swan, the fourth official studio album under the moniker (not counting the ones he’s apparently keeping to himself), tosses rap, R&B, rock, gospel, jazz, and screw music into a blender, then lets the mix dry and warp in the sun. Charcoal Baby and Vulture Baby are the same brand of woozy, disembodied warm-weather music as Kool and the Gang’s Too Hot ; minutes later, Swan’s chasing Memphis and Texas rap homages with a full-throated gospel invocation from New York–area vocalist Ian Isiah. Orlando invokes ’70s Stevie, while Out of Your League revisits ’80s Prince.
The best tracks of the half-decade so far: "We Can't Stop," "Climax," "Get Lucky" and many more. The end of 2014 also meant the end of the first half of the 2010s, a decade thus far marked by fantastic popular music from sources expected (Beyonce, Usher and Lady Gaga kept delivering bangers) and unexpected (who saw the incredible rises of Carly Rae Jepsen and Miguel coming?). Although the past half-decade was brimming with memorable hits, these 20 defined the last five years the best, and will endure through the second half of the 2010s and beyond. This is Nashville pop at its finest.
This time, on album five, the electronica mastermind wants you to have a blissful psychedelic experience, and he’s here to guide you through from beginning to end. Though ‘Singularity s 62-minutes can get extremely heavy. it’s still a near-perfect trip, and one that confirms Hopkins’ status as one of the genre’s brightest talents. With any justice, this’ll be the album that catapults them into being recognised as one of the most important artists in the game.
The album itself is as versatile and thoughtful-a genre-hopping collection of jazz, funk, house, and disco that rolls out like a survey of all the fun the ’80s could offer. Listen: Patrice Rushen: Haven’t You Heard. McCartney had fiddled with synths before, but this album motors almost entirely on them, its Top 40 choruses distilled to essence below cheery keyboards and tinny drum machines. Its gulping electronic beats are so playful that the record can initially scan as shallow-one long, instrumental furtherance of his Silly Love Songs sanguinity-but the skill in its arrangement and embrace of technology doesn’t waver. Originally derided as a novelty, McCartney II is now remarkable in its prescience of the lo-fi and bedroom pop movements.
VARIOUS Drive OST (Lakeshore Records, 2011). If the soundtrack for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive only included the score by modern composing icon Cliff Martinez, there’s an argument to be made for it making this list: its synth-splatted themes capture the film’s alternating serenity and savagery with Carpenteresque tension. But there’s far, far more going on, and on this – her first, subtlest and probably best statement so far – she owes more to living traditions of techno and ambient than to any dodgy neologism or arch retro urges.
