BANKS’ ‘Goddess’: Album Review

There’s a level of accessible obscurity that brought BANKS to the forefront of 2013’s summer and has kept her here for the release of her debut album Goddess(out today, September 9). While artists like FKA Twigs remain cloaked in intimidating anonymity and every princess in pop’s rolodex is currently overexposed, BANKS is just

Maroon 5’s ‘V’: Album Review

Maroon 5 are nothing if not consistent. Their 12-year tenure of releasing albums has been punctuated with hit after hit — a huge feat for any band that isn’t named “U2 in the ’90s.” In a world where almost everything is microwaveable, Maroon 5 manage to maintain a solid track record of success,

Ariana Grande’s ‘My Everything’: Album Review

It’s incredibly hard to believe that Ariana Grande is only on her second album. It is also hard to believe that her debut album Yours Truly was only released a calendar year ago.

10 Things To Expect From Madonna’s Next Album

When Madonna releases a new album, it isn’t so much an event as it is an international holiday.

Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Blacc Hollywood’: Album Review

Ever since Wiz Khalifa’s debut single “Say Yeah” (the one with the infectious Alice DeeJay “Better Off Alone” sample) arrived, it’s been pretty obvious that the Pittsburgh rapper has a penchant for crafting anthems.

Kimbra’s ‘The Golden Echo’: Album Review

There is not a single person on this good Earth who didn’t, at least once, attempt to sing Kimbra’s last note on Gotye’s 2011 hit, “Somebody That I Used To Know.” You tried, you failed, and the reason why is because you’re not Kimbra.

10 Things To Expect From Kanye West’s Next Album

Kanye West’s seventh album Yeezus was a bit of a game changer, to say the least.

La Roux’s ‘Trouble In Paradise’: Album Review

La Roux’s first real dose of success was comparable to the Big Bang Theory (the actual theory — not the hit TV show). In 2009, the UK outfit (then comprised of one Ms. Elly Jackson and Ben Langmaid) dropped their self-titled debut album. The project had a handful of proverbial bangers, but it…
