I'm honestly worried. Usually by almost the halfway point of a year we get at least ONE awesome Pop album. We ain't got **** this year. MDNA is decent. Master of My Make Believe is good, but not great. Electra Heart and Born To Die are just okay. Other albums have been really bad too.
What's up with that? Am I just missing a bunch of awesome stuff? I know there have been albums that are great on the indie-scene, and if you want to call Beach House "Pop" then we have a good Pop album, but really..... it's been so disappointing.
I don't listen to many artists, but this year, PF: RR remains my favorite. Trespassing closely follows it. I wish Adam got more exposure.
I'm sure my opinion will change if Gaga releases something later this year, though.
EDIT: To answer your question, from what I've heard, no, there hasn't been a great album this year. RR is a random mess of 22 (great) songs tbh. While Trespassing is more cohesive, it has too many tracks that are just above average for me.
