Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. Girl Talk, All Day
(Available for free, the latest mash-up LP from the in-demand DJ, is not as memorable as the last release but it’s still a criminally smart production. Greg Gillis doesn’t just mix various pop songs, he creates new songs out of bold choices, and brilliant layers of rhythm.)

2. Home Video, The Automatic Process
(If Muse owes their career to pre-Kid A Radiohead, then consider these Brooklyn boys in debt for all that Radiohead made following it. Minimalist but very melodic, this could be a sleeper hit of the hipster set.)

3. Kanye West, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
(Meeting the exceedingly high expectations, Kanye’s latest is the hip-hop classic we wanted it to be.)

4. Rihanna, Loud
(Following a turbulent year, but a string of hit guest spots, the Caribbean R&B songstress is back with a punishing set of sturdy club anthems and lovelorn ballads.)

5. Cee Lo Green, The Lady Killer
(For his first solo album after the Gnarls Barkley success, Green has sadly ditched some of his hip-hop flare, but this assortment of retro-soaked songs will keep you happy…. even when he says “Fuck You.”)
