  • Bad Bunny: YHLQMDLG
    <p>Bad Bunny’s second album is outstanding. It’s a big party record that pushes boundaries and pays homage to reggaetón’s past and future, all made by a swaggering star with absolutely nothing to prove.</p>

  • Grimes: Miss Anthropocene
    <p>Grimes’ first project as a bona fide pop star is more morose than her previous work, but no less camp. Her genuineness shines through the album’s convoluted narrative, and the songs are among her finest. </p>

  • Earl Sweatshirt: Feet of Clay
    <p>A woozy, raw, magical, and extremely short album from hip-hop’s most tantalizingly inscrutable rapper.</p>

    <p>After 38 years of making music, Kim Gordon’s thrilling solo debut lives at the vanguard of sound and performance, shot through with the beautiful, unsparing noise that has always defined her art.</p>
