Does Dr. Dre Deliver After A 16 Year Album Hiatus?

8/12/2015 1:53pm EDT
Review: Dr. Dre Delivers A Gem With 'Compton'
16 years. That was how long it’s been since a new Dr. Dre album. For years, the west coast MC/producer/multimillionaire has teased the release of a third studio album, Detox. After it was all said and done – or rather upon the surprise release of Compton, Detox was scrapped once and for all. If the effort was subpar as Dr. Dre stated, well, fans came out with a victory getting Compton, an exceptional album ranking among the most thrilling regardless of genre in 2015.

“Intro” offers a brief history of Compton, hence a fitting initiation for the effort. Foreshadowing the sentiment of t...

The songs featured on this list are terrific, but none of them have been profound in the commercial department.

All deserve the same respect if not more than the hits, but they can always bask in their critical acclaim. These are the most underrated songs of 2015…so far.

How Did Mumford & Sons New Album Perform?

5/14/2015 10:09am EDT
Mumford & Sons Take ‘Wilder Mind’ To No. 1 On Billboard
Unsurprisingly, Mumford & Sons cruised to a career second #1 album with Wilder Mind. Despite retooling their banjo-heavy style, plenty of people still joined the British band’s party – 249,000 to be exact, with most of those equating to copies sold. Go back three years earlier when Babel and mad banjo were still thriving, and the numbers were loftier to the tune of 600,000. Still, given the new normal of album sales and a new way to calculate the overall impact of an album, Mumford & Sons performed well.

It wasn’t all about Wilder Mind contrary to popular belief (or the majority of s...
