81In Our Bones - Against the CurrentV1 Comment
82The Brightest Void - Tarja

Tarja reinvents herself on this album, the first volume of a two part series with the second, "The Shadow Self", due in early August. It features a variety of styles, with symphonic metal only being present on the Within Temptation collaboration "Paradise", ranging from pop rock to almost musical touches, also some country rock, alternative and even a bit of Björk-like electronica. Fans and critics alike may be devided over this new styles, calling it unfocused, but to me it is Tarja's most creative, inventive and varied album (and, with 9 tracks lasting for about 44 minutes, it has no filler tracks). - Martin_Canine

837/27 - Fifth HarmonyV1 Comment
84Deadpool Soundtrack
85This is What the Truth Feels Like - Gwen Stefani

Why is this album not in the top five? Like every, I mean EVERY, song is so good!

86Teens of Denial - Car Seat Headrest
87Aggressive - BeartoothV1 Comment
88The Glowing Man - Swans
89Atgclvlsscap - Ulver
90The Colour in Anything - James Blake
91Misadventures - Pierce the Veil
92Boxes - The Goo Goo Dolls
93The Human Condition - Jon Bellion
94Blut - Farid Bang

German rapper Farid Bang once again delivers everything he is popular for: multisyllabic rhymes wherever you look, double entendres, witty punchlines and epic beats on all of the songs. Yes, as always, his music lacks a certain depth, but this is meant to be a fun gangster rap album by a highly skilled MC, and "Blut" more than delivers. - Martin_Canine

95A Seat at the Table - Solange
96Blood Money - Dope
97Collage - The Chainsmokers
98Hangin' at the Beach - Delroy Edwards
99Imagica - The Birthday Massacre

You know you have an exceptional band when a collection of 11 demos sounds three times as good as an average band's regular studio albums. It bothers me this amazing group gets so little attention and airplay. - Martin_Canine

100Emotion: Side B - Carly Rae Jepsen
