    2020 is probably the worst year of our lives considering how many people are dying and how many still believe it's a hoax for no other reason other than blind ignorance. But since the quarentine, musicians and listeners alike don't have much to do if their not an essential worker. So musicians have used this time to record and write new music to release to give their fans something to do. Here is a list of my top 10 albums released from January 2020 up to now. First up are my 5 honorable mentions. These didn't make the top 10 but are good enough in my opinion to have made the top 15. 15. Taylor Swift "Folklore" Released on July 24. Note: it's a very well written record but I have to be in the mood for it since it's a very monotonous record that I can easily be bored with if I'm in the mood for something more energetic. But when I am in the mood for it I get INTO it. 14. Survive Said the Prophet "Inside Your Head" Released on January 15 by the Japanese rock band. Note: the song "Calm:Unison" is one of my favourite songs released this year, however the rest of the album didn't get the album to a top 10 spot. 13. Halsey "Manic" Released on January 17. Note: still bummed that Nightmare wasn't put on it since a song like "3am" or "I hate everybody" were on it (for the sound and the lyrics respectively; even if it's a loose comparison) 12. Rina Sawayama "Sawayama" Released on April 17. Note: this could have easily been top 3 had I had not over played the shit outta the record over the last 3 months. This woman deserves to win every goddamn award shes nominated for. Still pissed she wasn't eligible for the UK music award show. Even Sir Elton John is a huge stan, not a lot of musicians can say that a legend likes a newcomer's music. 11. Galleons " Metropolis" Released on January 24 by the Australian rock band. Note: vocalist Tom Byrne is also in another band that makes similar music called Valiant Hearts, which was the band that caught my attention at first. Galleons and Valiant Hearts are separate projects but I find them to be like "sister" bands. And now for my top 10 albums 10. Dua Lipa "Future Nostalgia" Released on March 27. Note: not much to say about this album. Since it's a short record, it's easier to really dive deep into it and submerge yourself in the quality of the songs. The only song that I'd rank at the bottom is Pretty Please. The song just isn't as ear pleasing as the rest, especially since the song "Physical" played before it. Since Dua felt more comfortable with herself with her 2nd album, it's more enjoyable. Highlights: Physical ft Hwa Sa • Love Again • Hallucinate 09. Palaye Royale "The Bastards" Released on May 29 by the rock band. Note: I discovered this band back in 2017 when the vocalist did the "American Satan" soundtrack then the following year PR released their album Boom Boom Room Side B. That album made me a fan. This album has its highs and lows, like any other record in existence, but this has its lows higher than the previous albums' highs. Highlights: Hang on to Yourself • Fucking with My Head • Lonely 08. Kesha "High Road" Released on January 31. Note: surprised that it's not my top album? I am tbh but there's a reason why it's so low. Firstly, I'm disappointed that the buzz single, Rich White Straight Men, didn't appear anywhere on the album. Not even as a bonus track. Secondly, the songs "Birthday Suit" and the Japan bonus track "Big Bad Wolf" were originally concieved during the Rainbow era. This bothers me to the point of annoyance, really, more than anything else. Nothing about the songs are bad, it's just why release old songs when I'm sure those spots could've been given to newer songs. The 2 songs I've been able to live without since the album's release are "Honey" and "Shadow". I've also come to prefer the demo version of Potato Song. Highlights: My Own Dance • Resentment • Potato Song 07. BTS "MAP OF THE SOUL : 7" Released on February 21. Note: When they first had their US debut in 2016 I hated them because they were everywhere. Then in 2018 I wanted to give them some sort of attention so I listened to Face Yourself but immediately hated it. Then in 2019 when they released their collab with Halsey I once again hated it. I believe I said "even Halsey couldn't save the song". Since then I've believed that I just wouldn't like them ever. But when 7 came out I wanted to give them a full chance. Glad I did for the 4th time cos I now stan them and they're in my top 4 most played artists on my last fm already (I started listening to 7 in March 2020). Highlights: Louder than Bombs • Filter • Black Swan 06. Meghan Trainor "Treat Myself" Released on January 31. Note: I kinda wish we had the album sooner and then she could've released a side b album with the the new songs. I'm STILL pissed we didn't get Hard to Please on the album. But we did get The Love Train which is half the original album and Hard to Please at least leaked~. Highlights: Have You Now • Wave • Genetics 05. Slaves "To Better Days" Released on August 7 by the rock band. Note: not much to say except that most of this album is completely fun to bop to. Lyrically, there are songs that I've thought about writing but could never put into words. Talk to a Friend is one of these. Highlights: Like I Do • Secrets • Talk to a Friend 04. Declan McKenna "Zeros" Released on September 4. Note: this album surprised me. I LOVED the lead single, Beautiful Faces, and didn't think I'd like the album as muh as I do. I wasn't much of a stan of his before but since the release of buzz non-album single British Bombs, I've been anticipating the next thing he does. Now I'm just waiting to be able to get a physical copy. Highlights: Rapture • Beautiful Faces • Twice Your Size 03. Marilyn Manson "WE ARE CHAOS" Released on September 11. Note: despite being released literally today I've already loved it this much. It's a first time for MM to not have any unclean (screaming) vocals on an album since 2007's EAT ME DRINK ME. This album imo is his best and its gonna be hard for me to say otherwise. Highlights: Paint You with My Love • Infinite Darkness • Perfume 02. Ellie Goulding "Brightest Blue" Released on July 17. Note: this album also surprised me. I wasn't much of a fan of Delirium as much as I was the previous 2 albums, but everything about this album has reawakened the stan in me. The album is just full of bops and songs that tug at you more vulnerable points. This album deserves every bit of success that goes its way and more. Highlights: Worry About Me • Love I'm Given • How Deep is too Deep 01. JoJo "Good to Know" Released on May 1 & August 28. Note: hands down the BEST release of 2020 and nothing can change my mind. Every bit of this album is just pure talent. This woman gave us eargasm after eargasm with this album. Plus a deluxe reissue??? My ears have been blessed. Not only is this imo her best album, it's also the album that she has most creative control over. Highlights: What U Need • Love Reggae • So Bad

    Hi. This is the second story about an alternate history of an artist. If you want to read the first one about Madonna, click the link below. https://fotpforums.com/blogs/entry/710-alternate-history-of-madonna/ Alternate History of Mariah Carey The 90s - Mariah Carey started her career in 1990 with Charmbracelet, an album full of lovely and sleepy ballads. The lead single Vision of Success was a modest hit in Sri Lanka and USA. - The next album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel (1991), was a top 10 hit in USA and UK. Mariah was praised for the single Obese, which talked about Mariah's weight issues during teenage years. - In 1993, Mariah released Rainbow. The album was a WW hit and sold 10 million copies. Not only it was successful, but also critically acclaimed. The album is known for its brave themes about LGBT community. Singles Against All Straights and Gaybreaker were no.1 hits. Gaybreaker was groundbreaking for being the first song to feature a rapper. Gay-Z in this case. - In 1996 Mariah reinvented herself. The album Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse was a departure from ballads and r'n'b sound. The album was full of Mariah's whispers and techno beats. The critics called it innovative. The album and the lead single You Don't Know How to Whisper flopped. - In 1997, Mariah tried to return to the charts with The Emancipation of Mimi album , but it only managed to reach top 40 in USA. - In 1998 Mariah formed a group called Music Box with the actress Jennita Lopezita, who got Oscar for Selena, and underground artist Beyonka. They worked on an album that was supposed to be called Caution. When the album was almost finished, Jennita stole the recordings and ran away. In 1999, Jennita released the album as a solo artist. Beyonka, who hoped that album would help her gain some success after flop EPs, went to oblivion, while Mariah has never spoken to Jennita again. The 2000s - In 2000 and 2001, Mariah Carey decided to take a break and became Britney Spears groupie. - In 2002, Mariah starred in a movie called Filter and did a soundtrack with the same title. The movie talks about a successful chanteuse who decides to quit her singing career and fight smoking around the world. Both projects flopped, but gained cult status over the years. - In 2003, Mariah released a book called Me. I Am Mariah... The Interior Designer, which was a bestseller. Apparently, interior design has always been her biggest love. - In 2004, Mariah released Are You There God? It's Me, Moo. The album was a comeback for Mariah. It was a collection of modern silky ballads about Mariah's crisis during flop years. The single Through the Rain was a no.1 hit in USA and many other countries. - In 2008, Mariah went on a world tour for the first time. It was called Larger Than Life Tour and promoted all Mariah's previous albums. Madonna's Smelly Feet Tour was a big competition at that time. The 2010s - In 2014, Mariah received a phone call from Beyonka, who offered her to buy Lemonade project, but Mariah wasn't interested. - In 2018, Mariah released her first hits compilation called Milk Me: The Greatest Hits.

    The 60s Satyricon (1969), also known as Fellini Satyricon, is a weird fantasy drama directed by Federico Fellini. Wiki: "The film is divided into nine episodes, following the scholar Encolpius and his friend Ascyltus as they try to win the heart of the young boy Gitón, whom they both love, within the film's depiction of a surreal and dreamlike Roman landscape and culture." The 70s I didn't watch these movies, but they seem interesting and some of them are well known. The 80s Labyrinth of Passion (1982) is a Pedro Almodovar comedy. Probably one of the most interesting movies by Almodovar. It features a lot of crazy characters, crazy themes and nudity. Another Country (1984) is a good movie. Maybe a little bit boring in comparison to the other movies here. It explores homosexuality/homophobia and hypocrisy. Basically, Rupert Everett is a gay guy who is disappointed with society and boys who had sex with boys, but they don't want to label themselves as gay or bi because of the reputation, so they pretend to be straight and are homophobic. My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) is a gorgeous comedy drama that deals with racism, besides homosexuality. Maurice (1987) is a romantic drama in early 20th-century England. It also deals with hypocrisy and homophobia of that time. I won't spoiled anything here, but I loved the twist. Law of Desire (1987) is a movie directed by Pedro Almodovar and that should say a lot. It tells a story about Pablo (a film director), Juan (Pablo's love interest) and Antonio (Antonio Banderas), who is in love with Pablo. Torch Song Trilogy (1988) is comedy drama about a gay man who works as a drag queen/torch singer. Longtime Companion (1989) is the first wide-release theatrical movie to deal with the subject of AIDS. Great actors, great story, interesting characters. The 90s My Own Private Idaho (1991) is an interesting movie directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix. I wished it had a happy ending. The Wedding Banquet (1993) was directed by Ang Lee and tells a story about Wai-Tung Gao and Simon, a gay couple whose happinesses is interrupted by Wai-Tung's parents who decide to come to USA from Taiwan and marry him to a girl. Different for Girls (1996) is a British comedy drama about a transgender woman who reunites with an old friend who fells in love with her. Rupert Graves is charming. Happy Together (1997) is a brilliant and artistic drama directed by Wong Kar Wai and follows two gay characters from China who try to renew their relationship in Argentina. In & Out (1997) is a solid romantic comedy starring Kevin Kline and Tom Selleck. Edge of Seventeen (1998) is a decent coming of age movie set in the 1984. I liked the 80s fashion and music. The 2000s Presque rien (2000) is a French Belgian drama focused on a holiday romance. Bad Education (2004) is another gay themed movie directed by Pedro Almodovar. It is a drama that focuses on sexual abuse by Catholic priests, transsexuality and drug use. Summer Storm (2004) is a German coming-of-age drama about unrequited love. A Home at the End of the World (2004) is a drama (based on a novel of the same title) about a complex relationship between two male characters (one of them is played by Colin Farrell) and AIDS. Brokeback Mountain (2005) is another great movie by Ang Lee. I guess I don't need to say anything about it because it is one of the most iconic gay movies of the 21th century. A Single Man (2009) is a debut movie by Tom Ford. It was based based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Isherwood. Since Tom Ford is a fashion designer, the movie is visually elegant and stylized. It features a fashion model Jon Kortajarena, whose role was small. Jon wants to be an actor, but he sucks at it. The 2010s Les Amours Imaginaires (2010) is a Canadian drama directed by Xavier Dolan, who also acts in the movie. It is in French. Interesting movie about friends (a girl and a gay guy) who fell in love with the same guy. Xavier's character is annoying. Worried About the Boy (2010) is a biographical movie about 80s pop star Boy George and his band Culture Club. It is a great movie with so many interesting facts and it portraits many popular artists of the 80s like Billy Idol, Steve Strange (leader of Visage) and Marilyn. Although it is a TV movie, it is well made. Keep the Lights On (2012) is an American drama based on a true story and shows a complicated relationship between Erik (a filmmaker) and Paul (a lawyer with drug addiction). Kill Your Darlings (2013) is a biographical drama about Beat Generation, but it features gay moments and gay characters. Call Me by Your Name (2017) is a coming of age drama set in Italy. Good actors, great story, beautiful sceneries. Love, Simon (2018) is a nice movie, but it just feels like a more commercial version of gay themed movies from the past. Still, it was fun to watch. Other: While I focused more on movies with romantic note, I enjoyed these ones too. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994) is an Australian iconic comedy about drag queens. An acclaimed movie that impacted To Wong Foo, which was more commercial. To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar (1995) is "an American comedy film, starring Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze, and John Leguizamo as three New York drag queens who embark on a road trip." It was a great and unexpected choice to cast macho men to play drag queens. Fun and charming. The Birdcage (1996) is also a comedy, focused on drag queens, effeminacy, conservative people and other stuff. Madonna's dancer appeared in this movie.

    So, I'm sure many of you have already seen Gaga's latest music video for 911. The video is very surreal and confusing for the entirety of the song. The visuals don't seem to make too much sense until the song ends, where the video changes completely and you get a post-song scene that basically explains the whirlwind of visuals you were just subjected to. Now, with the context of the end scene, it isn't all too hard to figure out what the symbolism was within the video after a few re-watches. That being said, I thought it would just be fun to make a little chart/rundown of all the symbolism and connecting imagery I found in the video! I'm not saying I'm finding out anything particularly new, as I'm sure many to all of you have caught onto the same questions and answers that I'm providing here. This is kinda just for me, because I find it fun to do this kind of stuff! But, if it's helpful to anyone, that's great! I'm going to just go in chronological order of what the imagery means in the video to the actual events happening "in real life". Then I will show a list of images/characters from the surrealist dream and their real-world counterparts/equals. Let's go! Gaga has been involved in an accident. Here we see she was probably riding her bike and was hit. The red beads on her ankle represents her bleeding wound. The man bashing his head on a pillow represents the victim of the crash who was in the car: the pillow being the airbag. The woman in blue who starts off singing the song is the first witness to the crash. The group of three in the blue are also witnesses to the crash. The paddle represents their phone on a selfie stick. The man with the umbrella and the woman in white are paramedics. The people in blue point their paddle towards the paramedics, meaning they probably called them to report the accident. The paramedics descend onto the scene. The umbrella could be the ambulance or the ambulance sirens themselves. We see a woman cradling a person in a shroud. She is the friend or loved one of another victim of the crash who already died at the scene. They are the first person the paramedic goes to and checks their vitals. Because we do not see them again, it is assumed because they are already dead, the paramedics move onto the other victims. I actually don't know what this means! It seems to correspond to the line that follows this first chorus: "Keep my dolls inside diamond boxes". My best guess is that Gaga is weighing between the two. The paramedics are not in time to save the victim on the right, but are able to save the victim on the left. It is perhaps why she moves the doll on the right hand (a soul?) to the box (a body?) on the left hand. Let me know what you think! The water Gaga dances next to relates to the lyric "Front I've built around me, oasis. Paradise is in my hand." but this could also symbolize the water on the street of the accident. Meanwhile, the paramedic attends to someone: he holds up a shell to his face, which represents an oxygen mask. Gaga begins ascending, meaning her life is slipping away. I think the halo around the middle of her head symbolizes she's on her way to heaven, but not quite there yet. The rope around her ankle represents the paramedics finally beginning to attend to her, grabbing onto her before she slips away any further. Fun fact: this shot is a reference to the Italian surrealist film 8 1⁄2 ! The mirror in the woman paramedic's hand represents a flashlight which she is shining in Gaga's eyes to check her vitals/response. The male paramedic pulls Gaga down to the ground, and when she hits it, there is a brief shot of Gaga in the "real world" – indicating that the paramedics have begun their revival procedures. The red dress symbolizes the blood bleeding from her wound. The paramedics arrive, with the male paramedic holding a rope – representing the tourniquet. The male paramedic wraps his fingers around her ankle, representing his putting pressure on the wound to stop the bleeding and applying the tourniquet. In the next shot he opens his mouth and turns towards her, with Gaga stepping away soon afterwards. I believe this represents CPR/mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Gaga turning away and leaving could mean that the CPR is not working. In this shot, the mural behind them obviously represents the "real world" accident. The female paramedic is holding a snake, representing the Star of Life on EMS uniforms. The man is first seen attending to Gaga's leg; applying the tourniquet. Then he is seen with his hand on her chest while hers waves. This could further represent the CPR attempts and her stuttering heart. In the scene with the black background we see yellow "caution" tape that surrounds the accident scene. The male paramedic brings the female paramedic a box with two daggers inside. These daggers represent defibrillators, which are often the last-ditch attempt at reviving a patient, proving that the other attempts had not worked. Two orange-clad figures who we have seen throughout the video arrive with a gurney. These figures represent other EMS members on the scene of the accident. In the next scene (not shown) Gaga is on the stretcher and the male paramedic takes the two daggers and stabs Gaga's chest. That pretty much wraps up the surrealist/dream/hallucination/escape-thoughts/whatever-you-want-to-call-it portion of the video! Now I will just run-down all the visual connections and matches from dream-to-reality! Top: the two paramedics in the dream and in reality. Bottom: the paramedic with the mirror & the paramedic with the flashlight. Top: the black figure on the horse is the ad for the White Sands, NM that looms over the scene (also where the dream portions of the video are filmed!) Below: Gaga's wrecked bicycle, the scattered fruit, and her busted-up ankle. The other members of the scene: 1) the airbag victim 2) the woman cradling her dead loved one 3) the man being given an oxygen mask 4) the first witness and 5) the selfie stick witnesses (Note all the color coordination in their wardrobe!) And finally, the entire scene! On the left you can see a figure in blue, which is the police officer directing traffic. The flying confetti is the sparks of the marquee. The orange figure on the ladder is the fireman attending to the faulty electricity. I also thin the busted fire hydrant could represent the water I mentioned from earlier. And with that we're done! I do still have some questions. I don't think the exact nature of the accident really matters, but I'm curious anyway. There seems to be two pedestrian victims (Gaga on her bike and the person who died on the scene), as well as two cars involved (the sports car, belonging to the man given the oxygen mask, and the other car, owned by the pillow/airbag man). Very interesting! I loved this video a lot and it's just so pleasing watching it over and over and making all these connections. I'm glad that Gaga didn't make it too vague at the end, and the parallels are all pretty notable and make sense. It's still artistic, but not so over-the-top that people can't click with it and understand it. So lovely.

    Kylie and Madonna stans should overlap more, in my humble opinion. They're pretty similar artists in that what I like about both of them is their extensive discography of thematically different albums. Obviously, I am an expert on both (it's sarcasm, I promise) so I decided I would compile a list of Kylie albums to listen to based on Madonna albums that you may like. Let's start with the most obvious comparison: Ray of Light ---> Impossible Princess The Experimental One If you like the more experimental electronic sound of Ray of Light, Impossible Princess might be your Kylie album! While more trip-hop and a bit darker than ROL, it's Kylie's most experimental album and the one she wrote the most songs on, and her writing is quite impressive if you ask me. Also fun fact, Madonna said that Don't Tell Me from Music was inspired by Kylie's Cowboy Style from IP, which is an EXTREMELY fun fact if you ask me! Bedtime Stories ---> Body Language The R&B One Maybe it's my bias cause each of these are my favorite album by the two artists, but I do think Bedtime Stories fans will see the merits in Body Language as well. BS is more 90s r&b while BL is more 2000s r&b, but they're both each of the artists most cohesive albums musically. While I don't want to say definitively "if you like one, you're sure gonna love the other one!", I do think they could be good jumping off points for one another and both worked for me as vessels to get into each woman's discography. Confessions on a Dance Floor ---> Fever OR Light Years The Early 2000s Disco Album Amazing that Kylie put out two, right?? Disco queen! I include both because I personally prefer big anthems like Your Disco Needs You over quiet the repetitive Can't Get You Out Of My Head and even though Fever is probably more similar to Confessions, if you're like me and Fever just doesn't quite do it for you, Light Years is a fun alternative (I know, unpopular opinion). Before I say anything else that could be bad let's just move on! Erotica ---> Kylie Minogue (1994) The Super 90s Album I first want to say that when I say "dated" I don't mean it in a negative way. Something can sound quintessentially 90s and have that be the best part of it. That's how I feel about these 2 albums and why I think of them similarly. While not her first controversy, Erotica was Madonna's super sexual album that really stirred the pot for women in pop music lyrically and KM94 was Kylie's first non-PWL album and a huge break from her previous sound, so I'd consider both to be big turning points in their careers. If you're interested in sultry 90s music and Erotica is your Madonna album of choice, KM94 might be a good album for you! And even if not, just listen to Confide In Me it's so good I promise MDNA ---> Kiss Me Once The Messy Album Again, not a bad thing. I know both albums get a lot of hate but I honestly highly enjoy both quite a bit. One of my favorite things is cringy music by otherwise talented artists and these albums definitely work for me on that front. I figured I'd mention them for anyone that's like me that likes this kind of stuff, but I also understand if you like neither, that's ok too! True Blue ---> Rhythm of Love The Fun Early Album I definitely use the word "fun" too much to describe music, but what can I say? Girls just wanna have fun! These albums are both generally upbeat and boppable. If you're looking for an early discography highlight, these are definitely good picks, and what do you know? Their both the artists third album! Rhythm of Love is more disco inspired 90s pop whereas I'd call True Blue an 80s pop album, I do think fans of one would enjoy the other. I couldn't find matches for all of the albums that I liked, so sorry if you didn't find your fave on here, but I wanted to add this one for shits and gigs: Like a Virgin ---> Enjoy Yourself These albums have a lot in common: both are each artists worst album, both are their second albums, and I've never been able to listen to either in full. Similar icons! Although it should be noted that LAV has 2 iconic songs that are more than listenable please don't hurt me So...yeah, I was bored and thought this would be fun. If you have any other comparisons you'd like to share, I'd love to hear them!

    I bought a new Beyoncé perfume (I believe it was Midnight Heat) about 11-12 years ago, because I wanted to try all of them, and I remember being told at the shop that if I bought the largest size perfume, I’d get a free bag with it, which I obviously went along with. I used it for like 2 years straight as my gym bag at school. I don’t have it anymore. I remember there being like scratches on it, and parts of it tearing away. I used it so much

    Since US music is getting boring and I'm tired of listening to the same stuff over and over I've been expanding the languages I listen to since starting with Kpop back in 2019 with BLACKPINK. Every so often I will share a song that's in a different language from the previous song(s). To start is a song by Taiwanese singer and actress Vicky Chen called 入土之前 (or in English; Til I'm Underground) it's from her 2019 album Am I Who I Am. It's pop/rock sound is certainly a step up from whatever bland music America is making now. If you are interested in listening to her album, you may do so here https://open.spotify.com/album/4UNHITlg3vOCdwV2qMwwl1?si=5xkUsO_LS3y2OHm_Z3n6Dw&utm_source=copy-link

    Blackout has perhaps become Britney’s most lauded album among fans and retrospective pop music critics. This is rather significant considering its relatively low impact at the time. The music had taken a backseat to Britney’s media attention and tabloid coverage. The critics were more concerned with her awkward pole-dancing in the “Gimme More” music video or her lip-synced fumbling performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. The album remains a black sheep among her discography, which sees Britney completely embracing the underground genres of dark electro-pop, techno, and even dubstep (all of which became more popular in later years). It didn’t offer the type of bubbly personality, sensuality, or radio-friendly hits we’d come to expect from a Britney album. This was what made it such an outlier – not just for Britney, but for the pop music landscape. Blackout is arguably Britney’s most cohesive album; the soundscape is succinct and each track brings its own level of satisfaction for the overall listening experience. However, despite this praise, it’s difficult to name Blackout as the best Britney album. The project is decidedly impersonal. Beyond a few softer tracks – like “Heaven on Earth” and “Why Do I Feel Sad” – the album is aggressively and unabashedly sexual. In The Zone had offered tracks oozing intimacy with a slice of passion: Britney whispered soft desires in “Breathe on Me” and easy sultriness over oriental strings on “Touch of my Hand”. Blackout hits listeners with gritty, hard-edge beats, forward lyrics of uncommitted erotic encounters, and a fair amount of vocals from the male producers that make you feel like a sweaty guy is breathing down your neck at a club. In fact, the entire albums feels like strobe-lights in a crowded black-box club, black paint on the walls and floors, and graffiti all over the bathroom stalls. The room is spinning, it’s dark, and there are people grinding on you from all sides. In some ways I suppose that was the intention of this album: it was meant for the clubs. On In The Zone, Britney co-wrote eight of the tracks. These were oftentimes specific to her experiences or interests. In 2005, fans were seeing Britney becoming more and more involved in the creative process, and were even promised the most personal project of her career. Whatever work was done between 2004 and 2007 was seemingly scrapped (with only a few Britney-penned tracks surviving on an EP) and the public received Blackout instead. Britney barely contributed to two of the tracks on the album, and considering her private struggles, the media scrutinizing her behavior, and being pregnant during recording, it’s hard to find the artist’s personal connection to the music. Britney only performed once to promote the album, and was focused instead on her own trials and tribulations. Considering what was going on with her at the time, a raw, sexually-charged record is an odd professional move. That isn’t to say that Britney isn’t present on the album. Despite criticisms of over-reliance on autotune, Britney is direct, loud, and sassy on Blackout, giving more than a few memorable performances. An album doesn’t necessarily need to come from a personal place to be good. Blackout is sonically interesting and one of the most provocative pop albums of the 2000s. Other female pop singers of the time couldn’t quite pull off this type of image and embracement of underground pop subgenres as Britney did. It remains a solid, timeless album even after all these years. One of the reasons why Blackout can’t quite snag the title of Britney’s best album is because of the releases that bookend it. In the Zone saw Britney’s intentionally-charged blossom out of her teen-pop image and into womanhood and creative metamorphosis. The album doesn’t quite hit you from all sides, as there are a few tracks that could have been replaced by any number of excellent unreleased material, but it saw Britney at her most involved. It was refreshing to see her finally take control of her music. On the other end, Britney barely gave Blackout enough time to rest in the dirt before releasing Circus in 2008. Although Britney still wasn’t giving much creative input, the album has a better balance in tone. The album is more positive, brighter, and doesn’t preoccupy itself with the subject of sex. The album is full of certified hits (“Womanizer”, “Circus”, “If U Seek Amy”) and even more potential smashes (“Kill the Lights”, “Shattered Glass”, “Unusual You”). Circus saw Britney re-embracing Top 40 sensibilities, but unlike the bubblegum releases of her youth, this album is mature and competent. One can’t quite say whether or not In the Zone or Circus are Britney’s best efforts – just as it can’t be said with certainty that Blackout takes that crown. All three are highly formidable pop albums in their own right, and it all depends on what the listener wants from Britney Spears as an artist.

    On June 9th 2017, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson a.k.a. Katy Perry released her fifth studio album (yes, we need to count her Christian music debut album because that's a part of her history) titled 'Witness'. The album was supposed to present Perry in a much different light compared to her previous records. She called it "purposeful pop" era. The album was notably different in its sonic landscape and overall theme, also worth to be mentioned was the production that largely sounded way colder than any other records that she had ever released. I called it her Erotica era. However, unlike what was hoped, the album was criticized beyond terrors. The music was panned mainly because of the lack of tasty hooks that usually permeated her previous records. The lyrics however were praised and many critics noted the improvement of her songwriting ability. Still, the album had missed Perry's own expectations to reinvent her music and image for the public and possibly winning more critics hearts. She did gain some witnesses, but not as big as what she thought she could gain. So, what went wrong with the era? Some people had said that it's because of the stark differences of Witness compared to her other pop songs. Some others had said that it's because of the persona she chose to present to the public during this promotional period. More had even said that it's the change of her hairstyle and hair color . I can't disagree with any of those perspectives, however I believe that it was more about the promotional efforts themselves rather than those other aspects. Remember that though she performed often during this era, it was not as constant as her previous album cycles. Her performances on big notable events were largely hit-and-miss compared to the automatic success that her previous performances had made. That messy YouTube live broadcast event was also not that good in my opinion. The music is not the problem for me, but it's the singles choices that made me scratch my head in confusion. Perry opened the Witness era with "Chained to the Rhythm", a sophisticated yet fun song that perfectly articulated what she had wanted. A purposeful pop. A bipartisan, universal message to stop being ignorant and start to become more caring towards anything else in life. A message of change and progress without tearing someone's identity apart. It's a perfect purposeful pop song that only Perry knew how to make. Then, it stopped. Literally. She followed the lead single with a song called "Bon Appétit". This song featured a group called Migos and they were very popular rappers especially in 2017. In essence, it's a serviceable dance-pop song with fine production. However, the song is about sex....and just that. Ask yourself, did Katy not already make something like this before? And the answer is yes, she had, and it was much better. It was "Birthday". She even made a lyrics video that used food aesthetics. So, you ask yourself again, why did she release another "Birthday"? And, well, I don't have any answers for that . After that song, she released more singles such as "Swish Swish" and "Hey Hey Hey". "Save as Draft" was also sent to AC radio as a somewhat single, and I can't believe her stupidity for doing all that. Why? Here, let me explain to you what I envisioned could have happened with the Witness era. After releasing the song "Chained to the Rhythm" as a single on February 2017, what she could have done was to release the album's titular track as a second single. When? March. Release it and make a music video with a concept of an alien humanoid who crashed on Earth and had to witness what Earth people were doing in their lives. The video should have been creative; I imagine a short story where she couldn't believe how boring human lives were and nobody actually paid attention to her, the albino blonde humanoid, so she started to build a rocket ship to get back to outer space. However at the end, after everybody had become interested in what she's doing, she chose not to go back because she believed that despite the boring lives that human beings experienced, they're still beings that were alive and functioning properly. She also realized that humans have emotions that were beneath her alien intelligence but fascinated her nonetheless. Humans work because they have to, that's the way the world of Earth works and that made her genuinely curious. So, she stayed on Earth and her rocket ship became a site attraction. She adopted a human identity and adapted the way Earth women commonly behave and do, but expressed a little dissatisfaction at the end. Then, she would cut her long blonde hair short and immediately felt more confident as she looked to the mirror. It's the exact same hairstyle displayed on the album cover. There. Even if it wouldn't hit top 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, that music video will help her to at least get a top 5 hit. After that, she could release "Power" as the third single and promoted it as much as she could everywhere. Release it on April and create a short movie, duration about 10 minutes. A video where she starred as a daughter of a dysfunctional family. She could have siblings or just be an only child. Literally apply the songs lyrics about becoming a stronger woman as her character grew up. At one point, the family had their last dinner before the father walked away and divorced his wife. Katy's character would become hardened by this event and she became a tough as nail type of woman. She would also despise men. Gradually, she would build a movement with every women of any backgrounds to fight sexism and other negative isms that have oppressed women. However, some of the women in her movement actually have boyfriends, fiances, or husbands that support them and love them unconditionally. She realized that not every men were bastards and men also comprised of different personalities, characters, thoughts, and emotions. However, she still had clear intention to fight those who were actual jerks/bastards. The final scene would show all the women at one place where the bad men already await, and the video would end as the two sides rushed to clash. With a video like that, her purposeful pop concept would be fulfilled and it would definitely make "Power" a number one hit record. The third single could be "Tsunami". It's a song about sex much like "Bon Appétit", however the former is much more subtle lyrically and it has something that the other songs from the album truly lacked: groove. With this as a single, she could have made a very simple video. It would just be her walking at the beach and altering with shots of her inside a bedroom of a small house that she had near that same beach. If she wanted to be provocative, make the subject of desire a woman. However, it's still fine if it was a man. I don't really have strong imagery for the overall video, but I know that the final scene SHOULD BE of a huge tsunami wave that was about to hit Katy as she stood in the sea water embracing the upcoming force. Imagine that cinematography, imagine that iconic final scene as part of her videography. The single would probably stall on top 20, but it's totally alright because it's a very new GOOD sound for her. Then, as the final single, "Swish Swish" got to be released with a different, PROPER music video. A YouTube-r called Zachary Campbell had some fabulous ideas for a proper "Swish Swish" video in one of his 'Skype calls' videos that criticized Katy and what she did NOT do for the Witness era. Check it out! After all of those singles, I would say that she wouldn't have to release more singles. Maybe send "Save as Draft" as a AC radio promotional single like what she actually did, but perhaps create a video for it too. A lyrics video that would show her writing all the words by using a laptop. That would make a cute moment. "Hey Hey Hey" should have never been a single in my opinion because that song just immediately turned many people off with the 'been there, done that' Joan of Arc-inspired concept. I also think that she could have performed "Pendulum" at the Grammy Awards, make it a medley performance with "Chained to the Rhythm" as the first song and halfway through the performance it turned into "Pendulum". Had she done anything like these, the era would have been much more respected. But I guess in reality her health was not in really good condition so...yeah .

    Christina Maria 'Xtina' Aguilera released an album titled "Bionic" on June 8th, 2010. The album was supposed to represent her femininity and motherhood, two aspects that don't necessarily linked to each other all the time. It's an album that also 'killed' her momentum in pop music as the critical and commercial receptions it got were abysmal. After the release of the album, she went through several events that would alter the course of her career and changed a portion of her personality as well. Not Myself Tonight was released as a lead single in April that same year and it didn't do very well on the main singles chart. It didn't crack the top 20. It also caused highly unnecessary comparisons to then-rookie singer Lady Gaga. The music video also got criticized for the masochist imagery and various depictions of sexual activity much like her older single Dirrty. More singles were released as part of the album's short era including Woohoo, You Lost Me, and I Hate Boys. Now, with all of that out of the way, let's begin this moment. Here is Bionic: What Could Have Been? Bionic could have, or rather, SHOULD HAVE been led by the release of Woohoo as a single that would give a sneak peek to the album. Technically we already knew what was about to come after Xtina released Keeps Gettin' Better, the titular track of her greatest hits compilation album, as a single two years prior. However, Woohoo would still be a good leading single for both fans of the singer and general public because the song is, simply put, fun. It's not very different to any of her previous singles but at the same time it possesses a different charm within. The electronic production compliments the composition so well. Also, given that the song was actually made as a radio-only promotional single after the undesirable chart performance of Not Myself Tonight, there's a shorter edit that you could search on YouTube. Woohoo should have had a very creative music video that reflected the song's sexual yet cheeky nature. I imagine a concept of an intergalactic party; police forces from different planets would visit an open area where a large group of people were partying hardcore to the song. The cops would arrive and tried to arrest some people, but ended up engaging with everybody else. Xtina would serve a look as displayed on then-secret new album cover. There should be experimentation with CGI and practical effects as well. The party was held in a place that contained futuristic structures made of metals and plastics, with wireless floating monitor which would serve as the speakers. Xtina would sit on a higher surface to symbolize her leadership of the party/planet, watching the party-goers and police officers engaged with one another, while her CLONES would serve beverages, biscuits, and pies to everyone in the area. During Nicki Minaj's part, she could be one of the cops that became intoxicated and ended up grinding with a sexy guy on the dance floor OR she could be a different leader from a nearby planet that wanted to have fun at the party. The video would gradually fade out to a white screen at the end until there's a message popped up on-screen which stated "BI-ON-IC" typed using the same font on the album cover. In this scenario, Xtina would also give various public performances. She would still do the MTV Movie Awards as well as the VH1 Storytellers performances. However, there should be no trace of a song called Not Myself Tonight in any of these performances. Instead, she would perform an unknown song suspiciously called Bionic. She would also appear at the Oprah Show and performed Bionic together with Woohoo. Basically all of the performances that she would do during this early part of the era were primarily consisted of Woohoo and Bionic. This way, the former song would set an expectation and probably reach the top 20 or top 10, especially with the Minaj feature. Remember that Minaj was experiencing a mainstream career rising in 2010; it would have been an event had she done it like this. After Woohoo, Xtina should have released Elastic Love as the second single. Remember that Bionic was just a song promoted on live performances, not an actual single. Now, with Elastic Love, she would open her futuristic sonic intention of the album. It would be during the release of Elastic Love that she could start to talk about the whole futuristic design or theme of the album. Not only that, the album would be called BIONIC. She would explain what she loved to explain about Bionic as both fans and GP experienced another taste of Bionic. The Elastic Love music video would be an event. It would be a 10 minutes long short movie that also served as a sneak peek to Xtina's potential acting career. Basically to get people prepared for Burlesque. It would be a continuation of Keeps Gettin' Better video. She would star as the Bionic lady we witnessed in Woohoo video who's also a shapeshifter-hero. Her planet was in danger as a murderous criminal lurked in the streets at night. She would have her Bionic Guards planning a capture of the dangerous individual. Shots would alter between the daily lives of Planet Bionic civilians and the brutal murders which happened at night. At the end, the criminal would get captured by the Guards and brought before Madame Xtina. As she opened the device which captured the criminal's head, it would reveal the face of a man which was the previous leader of Planet Bionic: Madame X's husband. Continuing the promotional cycle, Xtina would perform Elastic Love at award shows. Every stage designs would be futuristic and there would be a lot of white and red to symbolize that Christina Aguilera is still a human-woman with bones and blood. She just knew how to play a character in a short movie. She would also perform overseas, perhaps in Britain and Asian countries. Japan would eat the song, especially with a music video like that. In the U.S.A., I think the song would reach top 10 or even top 5 because of its perplexing yet cannot-be-denied bombast. During the reign of Elastic Love, she would release the album in its full glorious form. I imagine the album would debut at the top of music charts all over the world. The sales would be big as Elastic Love perhaps hit number one on the Hot 100. The Elastic Love short movie would trend on YouTube and set an unprecedented success for Xtina. With the album finally released, she would perform any Bionic songs anywhere she needed. She could even still release You Lost Me as a single just like in reality. The song would have had a different video though. I liked the actual video but it's just disconnected from the Bionic visual direction. Now I just think it's boring. However, in my imagination, the video for You Lost Me would have been about the different stages of grief that Madame X had to go through after knowing that her ex-husband was the one who wrecked the planet. It would be filled with symbolism of her actual previous marriage and divorce; a video where Madame would visit a lonely place near the end, maybe a garden or an abandoned church, to pray to reaffirm her identity and also to decide what to do with her ex-husband. This way, the song would still make sense with the theme of Bionic. It's still set in a futuristic world, just a bit more humble. She could also release Monday Morning, Birds of Prey, Glam, and I Am as singles whether it'd be official or promotional. In this imaginary scenario, not only that the album experienced success, Xtina also experienced healing and reaffirmation of herself especially with her newborn child. The era would truly be amazing and never been done before! In conclusion, I can only imagine all of these things as it's not what had actually happened. However, it's truly fun to envision a wonderful era for Bionic. The album may be an uneven final product, but at least there's still glimpses of humanity that lied underneath all of the robotic parts. I appreciate this album so much.

    Remember just a year ago when Miley Cyrus officially changed her name from Destiny Hope Cyrus to Miley Cyrus? Yeah, it was years ago. What I meant was, remember when she told us that she's going to release a three-part EPs which will be her next official studio album? Yeah, I remember that. Where is it now? None. Nowhere. Gone. Apparently, Miley was going to title the album as "She Is Miley Cyrus" which definitely gave me Barbra Streisand tease. However, I think it wouldn't be wise for her to use that title. Why? Because it sounds stupid as hell. She also already had an album called "Meet Miley Cyrus", why the fuck would she make another eponymous album? Maybe she's Barbra reincarnated. Well, not when Barbra is still alive and her most recent album was called Trump's Walls. Also, at least Mariah Carey didn't make a second "Mariah Carey" album, instead she made "Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse" so it's kind of destructive creative. Now, I have an idea for her. Why do I have an idea for her? I don't know why. But... ...I think the album should be titled "Cyrus" or "CYRUS" and here is the reason: - from BehindtheName[dot]com about the name 'Cyrus'. Miley is known to be a youthful woman, an independent person, she has strong ambitions and often look up toward the future as brightly as she can. I think by titling her new album "Cyrus", she can reach a higher level of maturity in her music too (if she's going to do it properly) without completely forgetting her youthful spirit. That's also her family name, so why not? Educate the AMERICANS, MILEY COME ON!!!! Also, just dismiss all of the songs that she had released prior to the album except for Slide Away. The whole She Is Coming EP was a terrible mess and she's not gaining any empowerment point by saying "Hallelujah, I'm a witch I'm a witch, I blow through ya...swish swish" . I say, she should consider to make an album that rather follow the direction of Slide Away; not meaning that she has to create more ballads like it, but rather to pay attention to the sonic aura/vibe of that particular song. Make an album that will reveal all, no lies no hides no pretense...Stripped™ So...yeah. God Bless all of you!

    04. Madonna - Madame X Madonna is willing to try something new again, but this album had too many ideas. She should have been selective a bit and ditched the autotune. It isn't flawless or one of Madonna's best albums, but it is a decent album and actually one of the most interesting and creative. It definitely seems underrated when critics overrated some other basic pop albums. Highlights: Medellin, God Control, Crave. 03. Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell! Probably a little bit overrated, because critics acted like this was the first great album by Lana. Highlights: Mariners Apartment Complex, California, Cinnamon Girl. 02. Shura - Forevher While the debut was all about the 80s, this album is closer to the 90s. Some songs still have that 80s vibe, but that doesn't mean Shura recycled the old sound. She evolved. The production is polished, while the lyrics are introspective. The album evokes the 90s r'n'b scene (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson). Highlights: Religion, Forever, Skyline. 01. Bat for Lashes - Lost Girls The best album by Bat for Lashes imo. The album is inspired by the 80s - music and cinema, the artists such as Bananarama, Cyndi Lauper and The Blue Nile, and film composer John Williams. Some songs are typical 80s synthpop, while other songs are dreamy, nostalgic and melancholic, with subtle 80s synths. Highlights: Feel For You, Desert Man, So Good.

    I've been wanting to do this for a while and it was fun (and also stressful). I left out Glitter cause I cba to listen to anything but Loverboy Anyway, let's begin! 11. ...What do you lambs see in this album? You know that thing non-fans say about Mariah, that "all her songs sound the same and her voice really isn't that good"? That's how I feel listening to this album. I listened to it in order and it was pretty hard to tell where a song ended and the next began, and her voice doesn't sound good at all! Minus Obsessed and It's a Wrap, I find this album an extremely tedious listen. I even dislike the song being covered on it, although it's far from my least favorite song she's covered, which we'll get to later. 10. This shouldn't come as a surprise. It's comparable to Memoirs in the sense that I find it extremely boring minus 2 songs (You Got Me and Boy [I Need You]), but the main difference here is that at least she sounds good on Charmbracelet. Also Boy (I Need You) is so much better than the original Cam'Ron song Oh Boy that she deserves heaps of praise for turning that mess into something listenable and, dare I say, cute. 9. Of Mariah's "good" albums, this is the most overrated. Although on my re-listen of it, I didn't dislike it so much. It's really just an album I don't feel the need to listen to in full. Ever. The two or so times I did were enough. Dreamlover is one of my favorite Mariah songs and Without You is one of my favorite covers of hers. However the biggest drawback to this album is that awful stain on her discography: Hero. Do people like Hero? I personally haven't met anyone that does. Yet it's one of her biggest hits. Why? What do people see in it? It's awful! The rest of the album isn't "bad", it's just a little basic and I'd rather listen to any of the albums listed above this one. 8. Now we're onto the albums I will actually admit that I like! This is a solid debut. It showcases all of her talent and she makes it all seem so effortless! Most artists don't come to the spotlight a full on artist in their prime, but Mariah did. Vision of Love and Vanishing are two of my favorite Mariah songs, Vanishing being one of my all time favorite songs. Actually fun fact, one time I was having a panic attack at 2 am so all I could do was listen to music and try to calm myself and Vanishing did a big part in helping me calm down. So yeah, that song means a lot to me, but I also find it to be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. That being said, this album as a whole feels very dated. It's definitely an album that was made in the early 90s. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I need to be in a certain mood to listen to it in full. 7. This album didn't grow on me until recently, but what a fun experience it is! It's extremely consistent in it's sound (which is a sound it turns out I really like) and it has a good amount of funny Mariah-isms to keep me entertained. She's also not trying to do anything she can't on this album (ie screaming too loudly despite the fact her voice is deteriorating). I like that she knew what she was capable and kept the yelling to a minimal. She sounds great on this album and it's a very enjoyable experience as a whole. 6. I thought this was my third favorite, but apparently, I was wrong. Don't get me wrong, I still love this album, but how MC2 grows on me with each listen, Rainbow dulls a little bit. Also, this is the album with my least favorite cover song! I do not like Against All Odds, and even Mariah can't change my mind on that. However, a select few songs solidify the number 6 spot on my list. I'm a sucker for the Me and My Girlfriend sample in How Much, Bliss and Petals are gorgeous, dreamy sounding ballads, Heartbreaker is one of my favorite of her number 1s (and music videos), and Crybaby might honestly be my favorite vocal performance from her. Those mid-range riffs towards the end make my panties wet every time. 5. Surprised? So, I've been working on this ranking for WEEKS. The main reason for that was I didn't know where to place this album. One of the big reasons I love Mariah Carey so much is I love big, loud pop singers ballads so for me, this album is a GEM. This album gives me intense ballad after intense ballad and every single one is just ear candy (is that a term?). One of my favorite things to do is listen to big ballads really late at night and lip-synch intensely, so this album is absolutely perfect for me. The reason I had a hard time placing it is because it's different from her other albums for me. It's one of the most enjoyable while not being one of her best. So I had to choose how I was gonna do this, by enjoyability or how good I actually think the album is. I decided on enjoyability because this album is awesome and I love every second of it, even though most people won't see the magic I see in it. 4. What a comeback this album is in terms of quality. While I do really like MC2, I needed that one to grow on me. This one didn't need growing at all. Her voice sounds better than it has in years (Memoirs, I'm looking at you) and I love the fuck out of so many of the songs on here. The Art of Letting Go is somehow one of my favorite ballads of hers, Make It Look Good describes so many guys I know and is just a fun bop to listen to, and #Beautiful deserved so much more because it's, well, #beautiful. I never expected to like this album as much as I do, but I am extremely happy to tell people it's one of her best. 3. I had a similar problem with 3 and 4 as I did with 5 and 6. MIAM has more individual songs that I love listening to, but as a whole, I like the sound of Emancipation better (in terms of the music, remember what I said about MC2 and how she wasn't doing anything she couldn't do anymore? The shade was directed at this album specifically). Despite the fact that I have more bad things to say about this album than the one I ranked previously, I do still believe this is a better album. This was the album where she started to have a more urban sound, and I think it was perfect on this record. Every single from this album is absolutely fantastic and so easily recognizable. Songs like Fly Like a Bird are absolutely gorgeous and Get Your Number makes me wanna dance while I'm walking down the street. I can't think of one bad song from this album, it's a great full listen with lots of songs with repeat value. 2. Numbers 1 and 2 tend to be every lamb's top 2 picks as well. With good reason though, these 2 albums are her vocal peak. But before I get into number 1, I'll talk about why I love this album. Fantasy is one of my favorite number 1s of hers, I love that sample. Always Be My Baby, while a little creepy when given a second of thought, is super cute and always fun. Open Arms is my all time favorite cover of hers, the first few times I listened to it, I honestly didn't know it was a cover (I really don't care about Journey though). Forever is easily one of my favorite ballads and songs of hers as well. BUT, and the but here is a big one, I HATE One Sweet Day. I don't want to get into why because it's really just me and how I react to sentiments in songs, but I can't stand it. She sounds great, Boyz II Men sound great, but I find the song unlistenable. Other than that, this album is a great listen, and her voice sounds absolutely incredible. 1. What? A Mariah fan chose Butterfly as her favorite Mariah album? What unconventional taste! Anyway, this album is as good as everyone says it is. This album has a) Honey - my favorite Mariah number 1 b) Outside - my favorite Mariah ballad c) Breakdown - my favorite Mariah single And while those three alone are enough to solidify this album's spot at the top of my ranking, the rest of this album is still incredible. The Fourth of July, The Roof, and My All are all absolutely beautiful songs and The Beautiful Ones is a fantastic cover of a Prince song. Also all the songs I didn't mention are also great, those are just the ones I like most. There isn't one song I dislike on this album and every second of it is absolutely gorgeous and worth the top spot on my ranking. I feel like I get really carried away with my opinions so if you actually read this, thank you, also if you didn't, thanks for checking it out! The next ranking I wanna do will probably be Green Day, which I imagine most people won't be interested in, but I'm gonna do it anyway although I'll probably wait for the new album to come out and do something else no one cares about in the meantime

    LET'S GET TO IT (1991) Serving as Kylie's fourth and final album with PWL, it is apparent in the ever-maturing sound Kylie wants to move away from her classic PWL roots that brought her to fame. She pushes the controversial boundaries in experimenting with more sexual lyrics and much darker pop than what the past three albums had held. Pete Waterman described working on the album as a 'nightmare', and while retaining a few tracks that are very classic SAW like 'Give Me Just A Little More Time', 'Word Is Out' took the album theme in a different direction. The video for the opening track and lead single was provocative in that a daytime version had to be cut for mid-day music television. Becoming her first single to miss the UK Top 10, the public was seemingly a little unhinged at the fact this cute little post-television soap star was now expressing herself. An alternative Summer Breeze mix was commissioned for the Australian single and used in place of the original on the album itself. 'If You Were With Me Now' was a cute ballad, but now often thought of as too Disney - although it did reach #4 on UK charts. Failing to chart in Australia, they made its international B-side 'I Guess I Like It Like That' the A-side, and most copies issued in a plain black sleeve. 'Keep On Pumpin' It', while not an album track nor released directly under Minogue's name, but rather British duo Visionmasters, gained writing credits from 'I Guess I Like It Like That' due to its sampling of her vocals from the track. It was thought it would be a big club hit, but the single barely scraped the UK Top 50 at #49. 'Give Me Just A Little More Time' was released as an early 1992 single, with B-side and super 90s house banger 'Do You Dare?' having two remixes being commissioned for the release. The original track, which remains unheard, is said to feature verses and harmonies, was a lot different to the remixes that were created. To round off the singles, April 1992 saw the release of 'Finer Feelings', which was redone for release by Brothers In Rhythm, one of whom, Steve Anderson, would go on to be Kylie's long-term musical director and close friend, and still is to this day. Another fantastic B-side was released along with this single, house track 'Closer' is a standout in her PWL catalog and a strong favourite. In Australia, "Finer Feelings" became her lowest-charting single at that point, reaching number sixty on its debut in the ARIA top 100 singles chart for the week ending 5 July 1992. "Finer Feelings" remained Kylie's only single to miss the top 50 in Australia until her 2010 single "Get Outta My Way", which peaked at number sixty-nine. Overall the swingin' soul vibe of this album was a perfect way to tie off her years under the PWL label and depart from Stock, Aitken and Waterman songwriting. SAY THE WORD - I'LL BE THERE (7/10) Serving as the B-side to Kylie's very stunning but also very experimental 'Word Is Out', this light ballad spotlights her strong vocal ability and is very soothing. The backing choir is very reminiscent of her earlier albums, but there's no doubt this is a lovely little track. The lyrical aspect is a little basic but the label has gained their traction in choosing B-sides correctly, and this fit the B-side stigma to a T. It provides the backbone for the hard-hitting Word Is Out and it's done that job well. DO YOU DARE? [NRG Mix] (10/10) Introduced with a very sinister and gaining intro, this house bop slowly builds up and by the time it reaches full speed you just want to dance!! This timeless but nostalgic song also showcases her amazing vocals and screams nineties! The piano and synth throughout the track are executed perfectly. Do You Dare? is worth a full 10/10. Something that never gets boring or old, and another one of the most left-field tracks out of her PWL catalog. CLOSER (9/10) With an aurally confusing intro for your brain's metronome, this is Do You Dare's slightly calmer cousin. This fairly dark track also features Kylie's heavy breaths and midway through the track a strong bass kicks in which always manages to remind me of the Cherry Bomb intro. This track epitomises Kylie in the Let's Get To It era. This isn't about teen relationships and short-term anymore - this is mature, sexual, and slightly raunchy, while not overdoing it or being 'slutty'. 'Closer' provides her soothing, slowed vocals with a beat that you can't not dance to! Might be doing Kylie Minogue and Impossible Princess tonight - keep an eye out

    Britney Spears // Glory Like many of us, Britney was more or less my first foray into pop music, but probably not in the way you'd expect. Up until high school, I'd listened to mostly alternative / rock / basic straight white boy music. I didn't touch pop (or rap) at all, but my bus ride to school was almost an hour each way, and the driver always had pop radio on. So, I started getting closely acquainted with it. My first pop album download was Circus, and I didn't like it. I had not yet found the light. As I got more into pop, I went back and listened to Britney's discography, in reverse. I started with Circus, Blackout, and made my way back. I didn't get as attached to her first few albums, maybe because I lacked the nostalgia of growing up with her music, and I maintained that Circus, Blackout and Femme Fatale were my Britney trinity. I have since gotten more into ITZ and Britney (the album, obviously), but those remain my favorites. Let's not even talk about The-Album-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. I was actually driving home from that TV job (the one where I met New York) around 1 in the morning the day Make Me was released, so I listened to it on repeat most of the way home. Sexy midtempo Britney was here, and I was here for it. But the feature is trash, let's be honest with ourselves. As we got the promo singles, I somehow became simultaneously more and less confident in what the album as a whole would be. I liked each track, but they each had a fatal flaw that I couldn't unhear. Make Me was the G-Eazy feature, Private Show didn't really feel like a studio track at all, Clumsy's was the horrendous mixing for the breakdown and the flimsy-feeling production, and DYWCO was the shouting men in the chorus. Did we not, as a society, learn our lesson after Focus? I was still excited, mind you, but I did have my concerns. Thankfully, those promo singles were largely the most lackluster songs on the album. Let's dive in. 1. INVITATION - 4/5 Wow, what an album opener. This is something you straight up don't hear from Britney, and I love it. Even the vocal effects feel stylistic, instead of messily covering up some phoned in vocals. They're tender, but they feel right. 2. MAKE ME FEAT. G-EAZY - 3/5 Don't get me wrong, this song is boppy, but it's not lead single material. And the one feature on the entire record is wasted on someone as bland and basic as G-Eazy. Take him out, put in someone better (or don't put in anyone at all) and it would be better. 3. PRIVATE SHOW - 4/5 I genuinely hated this when she first dropped it. It was messy, it feels underproduced, like I'm listening to a "live" version of a song instead of an album track. It has since grown on me, though. It's something completely different for her, and I can appreciate that about it. Plus it's lowkey kind of catchy. 4. MAN ON THE MOON - 5/5 The production. The vocals. The message. Everything is slick pop perfection. The oo-oo-oo-oo-oooonnn in the chorus is absolutely infectious. 5. JUST LUV ME - 4/5 I was super excited to hear this after that snippet leaked. Hearing the full thing, it's a catchy midtempo DJ Mustard track, is there really anything else I can say about it? "I'm not gonna ask for a sip when I'm thirsty" is a great lyric. I wish the chorus was a bit more dynamic, but I get it; we need to know the words after just one listen, so Repeat Stuff. 6. CLUMSY - 3/5 The "oops!" is cute but the breakdown kind of kills any momentum the song has. Meh. 7. DO YOU WANNA COME OVER? - 3/5 I want to like this song, because the production is good, she sounds good, the verses are good, but that chorus -- bleh. 8. SLUMBER PARTY - 5/5 I know some people thought this song felt too topically samey right after DYWCO, but I actually really like that about it. It feels like a proper followup to the question it's definitely a standout track on the album, probably my first favorite really. The casual f-bomb is perfect. The production and melody are SO catchy. 9. JUST LIKE ME - 2/5 OKAY STOP WITH THE FUCKING TERRIBLE CHORUSES PLEASE. The song is reasonably cute but the chorus is awkward as shit. 10. LOVE ME DOWN - 4/5 Okay now this is something I can get into again, something very stylistically different for Brit but it fucking WORKS. 11. HARD TO FORGET YA - 4/5 Once again I find myself wishing the chorus was a little more dynamic, but goddammit this song is still a banger. The production on this album is super interesting, it feels like there's a lot going on without being overwhelming. All the little bits and bobs circling around during the verses here give this song a great texture. 12. WHAT YOU NEED - 4/5 Yes this sounds like a Burlesque track, yes it doesn't have a post-chorus payoff like you're probably expecting, but I could listen to Britina growl all damn day. She's not Whitney Houston (and she doesn't need to be), but I think we can all agree it's nice to hear her flexing her vocals for a change. "That was fun", yes it was Brit, yes it was. 13. BETTER - 5/5 Alright we've clearly got some Kygo influence here, but that's not a bad thing. This song is cute as fuck, and the production is (once again) on point. Another general album thought: let's all take a moment to appreciate that she isn't drowning in background vocal layers for the first time in nearly 10 years. She's actually here y'all! 14. CHANGE YOUR MIND (NO SEAS CORTES) - 4/5 Anyone else kinda getting a chuckle out of the fact that Revival was largely midtempo with one random Latin-influenced song, and the same thing is happening here? Not trying to start a stan war or anything, just sort of a funny observation. Anyway, this song is good as fuck, and the chorus is absolutely perfect. I don't speak German Spanish but I can if you like 15. LIAR - 5/5 YES. YES. YES. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS PERFECT, WHY IS THIS RELEGATED TO BONUS TRACK STATUS? 16. IF I'M DANCING - 4/5 Production is spastic and completely out of left field, but it's not a bad thing. I can see why it's a bonus track, but at the same time I'm here for it ya know? Also this: 17. COUPURE ÉLECTRIQUE - 4/5 I genuinely am not sure how to rate this one. I don't understand a single word of it because I'm an ignorant monolingual 'Murican, but it's cute. Her vocals are sweet and the production is good, so I guess we'll go with a 4. OVERALL - 4/5 I'm so happy she's back. Not just physically there, but she actually seems invested and present in the material in a way she hasn't been for many years, and she delivers a great pop record as a result. The producers work with her voice instead of covering it up, the album feels fresh, and I can tell it's going to be on repeat for a long time. Good job Brit, welcome back to the big leagues.
