0

Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, Rolling Stones, Kesha, Harry Styles, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, St. Vincent,U2, among the best selling album of the year.

Almost all the international music magazines have drawn up preference and sales rankings.
In principle, they all agree to position the best albums in the first positions but with a different order.

British Magazine NME put Lorde Melodrama as Number 1. The New Zealand star sums up the raison d’être of her stunning second album with the understated chorus of fourth track ‘The Louvre’: “Broadcast the boom-boom-boom-boom and make ’em all dance to it”. This is a regret-drenched break-up album that waves a albummagic wand at pain and transforms it into pure pop magic. From house-influenced lead single ‘Green Light’ to the deliciously overwrought ‘Supercut’, ‘Melodrama’ gives you pause to reflect on the past even as it takes your hand and leads you to the dancefloor.

Billboard’s N1 is  Kendrick Lamar, DAMN. while NME positions is N3:

When someone puts every track title on their album in caps, you know they mean business. Kendrick Lamar was certainly not d**king around when he released ‘DAMN.’ in April. With his fourth studio album, he rightfully retains his crown as the greatest rapper of his generation. .’ Rihanna and U2 even stop by for guest appearances. King Kendrick indeed

Rolling Stones shows the U2 at N 3  U2, ‘Songs of Experience’ Opening with a prayer and benediction – “Love Is All We Have Left” – that finds Bono leaping down a rabbit hole of pop-vocal processing to deliver one of his most emotive songs ever, U2’s latest finds the band coming to terms with a world closer to the brink than at any time during their career. (Rolling Stone)
Yet Rolling Stones inserts at Number 4 and LCD Sound SYstem at N 5- Kesha, after her legal travails, anything Kesha released would have a veneer of triumph. But this comeback set, seven years since her debut, was an artistic warrior cry more potent than any might’ve expected. It began gently with “Bastards,” an acoustic guitar-led anthem and instant lighters-up classic, pivoting into punk-pop.

Lana Del Rey Lust For Life gets N 8 on NME. Opening with ‘Love’, her most grandiose song yet, Lana Del Rey’s fourth major-label album sees her practising her usual trick of mixing doo-wop and girl-group sounds with hip-hop and trap influences. Yet this time her usual furrows into darkness are infused with a certain light.

 Taylor Swit’s Reputation has quoted as N7 in Rolling Stone and Number 6 on Billboard, which put Jay Z 4:44 at number 4. Surprise for  SZA Ctrl parked at N2 on Billboard: When it comes to blurting out her own truths, breakout R&B star and TDE signee SZA has everything but control — and that’s what makes her knockout debut the year’s most unashamedly relatable albumThe forbes most paid rockstar
 St. Vincent   MASSEDUCTION finds alternative auteur Annie Clark leaning further into the worlds of synths and electronics to produce a deeply personal yet highly oblique album hitting number 12 on Billboard.
