Best of 2017... Mid-Year

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by NecessaryVoodoo, May 29, 2017.

  1. Mostly the stuff I've been coming back to the most. I'm a bit behind on some releases though so this is just an extremely rough list.

    Albums:
    Charli XCX - Number 1 Angel
    Dua Lipa - Dua Lipa
    Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
    Katy Perry - Witness
    Cashmere Cat - 9
    Lorde - Melodrama
    RuPaul - American

    Songs:
    Bleachers - Don't Take the Money
    RuPaul - Call Me Mother
    Katy Perry f/ Migos - Bon Appetit
    Halsey - Eyes Closed
    Shania Twain - Life's About to Get Good
    Louisa Johnson - Best Behavior
    Thomas Rhett f/ Maren Morris - Craving You
    Iggy Azalea - Mo Bounce
    Cashmere Cat f/ SOPHIE & MØ - 9 (After Coachella)
    MØ - Nights With You
    Niall Horan - Slow Hands
    Selena Gomez - Bad Liar
    Carly Rae Jepsen - Cut to the Feeling
    Lady Gaga - The Cure
    Rita Ora - Your Song
    Lorde - Green Light
    Jax Jones f/ Demi Lovato & Stefflon Don - Instruction
    Allie X - That's So Us
    Sigrid - Don't Kill My Vibe

    Disappointments:
    Bleachers - Gone Now (He's too talented to release an album this messy)
    Hailee Steinfeld - Most Girls (Someone get her a good A&R for the love of GOD)
    Liam Payne f/ Quavo - Strip That Down (Girl...)
    Fifth Harmony f/ Gucci Mane - Down (If you're gonna rerelease your best single, at least make sure it's good)
    Zara Larsson - So Good (You've had some of the biggest worldwide hits of the past couple of years and you give us outdated b-sides?)
    Tinashe - Flame (Maybe getting dragged by Twitter will get her back on track?)
    Camila Cabello's Solo Career (All that BS for those 2 aggressively middling songs? Ok sis)
    Julia Michaels' Career (Not awful but I was expecting better honestly)

    Excited for... (I had fun wasting time writing this so enjoy I guess)
    Liam Payne's Album that will most likely be a mess but I'm here for some bops and some second hand embarrassment.

    Selena Gomez's 2nd (according to her) Album. Here for the Mexican Madonna keeping the forum continuously fuming.

    Fifth Harmony's 3rd Album. At least there might be bops?

    Camila Cabello's Album. Expecting this to be mediocre honestly but I'm perched.

    Rita's Radiation

    Iggy Azalea - Digital Distortion - Sis the album is already mostly out there and your career is 2 years past its expiration date. Please just pay someone off at Def Jam and get it over with.

    Hailee Steinfeld eventually re-releasing HAIZ for the 5th time

    Sky Ferreira's/Charli XCX's/Tinashe's/Louisa Johnson's albums that are most definitely not being held hostage by their labels/themselves! Haha!

    HAIM
    Lana Del Rey
    Fall Out Boy
    Calvin Harris

    Thomas Rhett/Sam Hunt? I'm guessing these are happening? Both of them dropped singles and have yet to give us an update on anything else. Craving You is close to peaking and Body Like a Butt Plug is dropping so get on with it sistren.

    Is a Clean Bandit album happening? I'm perched for that.

    The complete shit show that'll be Meghan Trainor's 3rd album campaign (probably not happening until at least Q1 2018 if we're being honest).

    The further implosion of the Witness campaign.

    Keke Palmer continuing to release singles with no end goal.

    Zayn? Not optimistic about this since Still Got Time is certified tissue paper.

    Nicki Minaj's impending train wreck of an album campaign that'll involve her posting chart stats that she definitely isn't getting from her ATRL threads.

    Niall Horan's eventual album.

    Louis Tomlinson officially ascending to forum hate figure status.

    Kiiara giving me more ammo to make her another forum hate figure.

    Jess Glynne somehow being the only UK pop girl in recent years to evade the 2nd era curse. I'm calling this now.

    Kylie Minogue!!

    Demi Lovato releasing a great lead single and an awful album for the 4th time in a row.

    Ariana Grande's Pharrell produced album that we're all somehow convincing ourselves won't be a mess.

  6. I posted about this in Random Pop Thoughts, but it definitely makes more sense here. My albums of the year so far kind of surprised me. Dua Lipa came out of nowhere to swiftly make my top five. In no particular order:

    • Witness
    • Number 1 Angel
    • Dua Lipa
    • CollXtion II
    • Humanz
    • Silver Eye
    Upcoming releases that will likely make appearances are Kylie, Carly Rae and Lana. The ladies are really killing it this year.
     
    LE0Night and HeartSwells like this.
  7. I know I already posted, but a lot has happened since and it actually is mid-year now... here is my first update:

    2017-SONGS
    #1 Amy Lee - Love Exists
    #2 Lana Del Rey - Lust For Life (Feat. The Weeknd)
    #3 Lorde - Green Light
    #4 Texas - Round The World
    #5 Amy MacDonald - Under Stars
    #6 London Grammar - Hell To The Liars
    #7 Hurts - Beautiful Ones
    #8 Lady Gaga - The Cure
    #9 Sumera - Animal
    #10 Raelynn - Praying For Rain

    #11 Shania Twain - Life's About To Get God
    #12 Kendrick Lamar - God.
    #13 Carly Rae Jepsen - Cut To The Feeling
    #14 Mylene Cruz & The Soul Madonnas - Toy Box
    #15 Dan Stevens - Evermore
    #16 Blanche - City Lights
    #17 The XX - Say Something Lovin'
    #18 Katy Perry - Chained To The Rhythm
    #19 Sufjan Stevens (and others) - Saturn
    #20 Nelly Furtado - Sticks And Stones

    #21 Fall Out Boy - Young And Menace
    #22 Loreen - Statements
    #23 Lorde - Sober II (Melodrama)
    #24 Goldfrapp - Ocean
    #25 Koit Toome & Laura - Verona
    #26 SZA - Prom
    #27 Beth Ditto - We Could Run
    #28 Miley Cyrus - Malibu
    #29 Harry Styles - Signs of the Times
    #30 Niall Horan - Slow Hands

    Recent releases such as the one from Lorde, Sza and Beth Ditto are likely to rise.

    NON-2017-SONGS
    #1 Miranda Lambert - Runnin' Just In Case
    #2 Maren Morris - I Could Use A Love Song
    #3 Cam - Village
    #4 Lady Gaga - John Wayne
    #5 Ariana Grande - Thinking Bout You

    With the lack of strong country releases, sorry Raelynn, the top 3 from last year is sufficient to keep me warm.

    ALBUMS
    #1 Amy MacDonald - Under Stars
    #2 The XX - I See You
    #3 Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.
    #4 Texas - Jump On Board
    #5 London Grammar - Truth Is A Beautiful Thing

    #6 Lorde - Melodrama

    #11 SZA - Ctrl
    #12 Niia - I
    #13 Jennifer Paige - Starflower
    #14 Jessie James Decker - Gold
    #15 Michelle Branch - Hopeless Romantic

    Kehlani and Kacy Hill are a bit too fresh for me to decide, but she is looking to have a spot on here too.

    Albums still delivering in 2017
    #1 U2 - The Joshua Tree
    #2 Miranda Lambert - The Weight of These Wings
    #3 Rolling Stones - Blue & Lonesome
    #4 Lady Gaga - Joanne
    #5 Maren Morris - Hero

    Disappointments
    #1 Linkin Park
    #2 Blondie
    #3 Rag 'N Bone Man
    #4 Mary J. Blige

    Upcoming of interest (pretty much certain)
    Foo Fighters
    Anastacia
    Kerri Watt
    Lana Del Rey
    Shania Twain
    Fall Out Boy
    Arcade Fire
    The Killers

    Upcoming (formed prayer circle)
    Kelly Clarkson
    Ashlee Simpson
    Avril Lavigne

  10. Missed the "disappointments" header? (I found it a disappointment as well, yes - I have some hope for him, he just needs music that can lives up to his vocal prowess.)

  11. I know, but I don't get why you'd even have expectations for him. You explained it already so whatever...
     
    LE0Night and Ironheade like this.
  12. Here's my list.

    Albums

    Maren Morris - Hero (really got into her music early this year and haven't stopped obsessing over this)
    Rihanna - ANTI (got into this very late because I didn't initially like it upon first listen, but gave it another chance after hearing so many good things about it and damn if it didn't blow me away and made me fall in love with the rest of her discography all over again)
    MUNA - About U (the whole album is sublime)
    Lorde - Melodrama (really grew on me after a few more listens)
    Harry Styles - Harry Styles
    Haim - Something To Tell You
    Hey Violet - From The Outside
    Dia Frampton - Bruises
    Andy Suzuki & The Method - The Glass Hour

    Upcoming

    Camila Cabello (my expectations are high; I've liked everything I've heard so far)
    Fifth Harmony (my expectations are low for this after the unremarkable Down)
    The Killers (too much to hope this will be similar to Sam's Town, their best album?)
    Arcade Fire
    Shania Twain
    Sara Bareilles (although this is pretty doubtful since she's not even in the studio yet)
     
  13. These will get rearranged, chopped and added to in due course:

    Holla.

    As certain people can attest, I've lowkey had this done since June, but, I caught a slight case of katyperry_stairs.png disease before I could properly wrap it up, so. Better late than never.

    Have a nice day.

  19. A&E

    A&E

    You've got some nerve tagging me in this after what you've done to Magnetized!

    Also ddd I love the selections and the colour palette arrangement it just took me the longest time to figure out what the rating system was with the 2016 list and frankly it's still messing me up.
