You can never be bored of Lady Gaga. You never know in advance what her next album will sound like. With Joanne, she took it to the next level: you never know what the next song will sound like. And that's awesome. This woman will be considered a legend by the time she's 80.
Above Anti, This is Acting and the soundtrack to Suicide Squad? Disgrace. This is clearly a great transition from pop to folk. - Swellow
Delta Heavy have always intrigued me, with heavy dnb and dubstep remixes of already catchy songs, and combining that style with funky house, gives them an experimental reputation that iften has great effect. But only now are we getting a full-on album, and I really don't know what to say. Delta Heavy, despite having different styles of music, have always made me think of Nero, with their weirdness but skill to put unlikely attributes together. And Nero have so far released two albums which they claim to tell post-apocalyptic thrillers when the tracks are put together. And that totally makes sense, but you don't get a full sense of what they envision.

This is too low because this album is being ignored by people who like good music because it's country.

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