At this point the surprising thing is that you had high enough expectations in the first place to be able to call a Jack White album ‘disappointing’

Princess Nokia- A Girl Cried Red. She went from really interesting hip hop to really dull generic emo-pop

Agree with everything here except Hopkins, which has been massively helpful to me getting work done this year.

Interesting to see A$AP mentioned as I know most here wouldn’t have high expectations but I really was disappointed by Testing. Felt like a bungled, confused release, with demo quality raps and production. The production on his albums is usually at least interesting and often gorgeous, so to hear this turgid trudge (after loving ALLA) was a shock. I get the sense he’s undergoing some creative growing pains, probably made difficult without Yams, but I still find him a thousand times more interesting and charismatic than Travis Scott.
