The 51 Best Albums Of 2013 - What Made Your List?

December 30th, 2013 6:00pm EST
Daft Punk
Ranking the very best albums of any year is incredibly difficult; there are always misses. 2013 was filled with some triumphant musical moments, though not all of their parent albums were necessarily ‘worthy’ of being considered the best of the year. Because of various factors, this list has its surprises and like any album reviewed, its triumphs and flaws. One thing’s for sure – the top ten to fifteen albums are pretty close to the cream of the crop from my perspective. Here are the 50 (+1) best albums of 2013!

Ranking favorites from throughout the year is one of the most time-consuming and arduous things to do.  All of the rap songs on this particular list of rap songs from 2013 all stood out to me in some regard.  Are they ordered correctly – most likely not.  Is there complete analysis of each provided below or even a sound reason why they were selected… um…well now… Basically, provided is a statement of a thought, a reaction, or possibly a reason why I though each song was special.

The 10 Most Disappointing Albums of 2013

December 26th, 2013 11:00am EST
Britney Jean
Throughout 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to review lots of albums.  Some were extremely special (Vampire Weekend, Modern Vampires of the City among ‘em), while others were D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-I-N-G. Not to be a negative noodle or kill anyone’s happy vibe, but sometimes artists lay an egg… a really rotten one.   Not every album here is just awful, but contextually, they didn’t quite live up to the hype.  Some were rotten eggs though!

1) Britney Spears

GQ Magazine's most stylish man of the year is Justin Timberlake.

The singer, who was also unveiled as one of the magazine's Men of the Year in November, beat music producer Pharrell Williams and Jennifer Aniston’s actor fiancé Justin Theroux, who also made the list of the “25 Most Stylish Men of 2013.”

Five Music Takeaways from 2013

The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2
Ah, there is always plenty to write about the music industry and the number of trends that come and go, as well as those remaining constant.  2013 was another interesting year, whether merely for its pleasant surprises or its disappointments.  Many observations will and can be made of the year musically and pop-culturally in regards to its artists.  While my inner musical nerdy side wishes that I could nitpick and analyze every facet microscopically, I’ll rely on a Childish Gambino rhyme to express why that’s not possible: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” What I do have time for is to shar...

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though!

Justin Timberlake was named one of GQ magazine's Men of the Year for 2013, and the singer/actor has landed one of five different covers for the annual issue; and, surprisingly, the 32-year-old tells the magazine that he's "not cool."

Justin says if he was cool he probably wouldn't be famous or successful.

"Listen, I'm not cool. Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad," he says.

"I've made a career out of doing things that I should not be doing," he adds. "I wasn...

12 Songs For Lovers – A Soundtrack That Will Boost Any Relationship

Love songs can be so touching and certainly can propel any relationship (and in some cases hookups).  I have constructed a list of 12 ‘love’ songs that have the emotional and physical connection between lovers in mind… or something like that!  I attempted to make some narrative, but like most soundtracks, they’re all over the place anyways!

Track 1

Raheem DeVaughn, “Complicated”

(A Place Called Love Land)

As we know, no one relationship is ‘cut and dry’ by any means; all are their own diverse entity.  Among Raheem DeVaughn’s best tracks on his underrated indie-R&B album A Place Called L...

Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2' Hits Number 1 Despite Mixed Reviews

Despite getting mixed reviews from critics, Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2" has peaked on the album charts.

Part two of the singer's latest album was released on Sept. 30. Part one was received well by critics (and included the hits "Suit & Tie" and "Mirror") and did very well commercially, while part two has been slammed for lacking focus and being self-indulgent.

(In contrast, Starpulse critic Kira Wills says "2 of 2 features Timberlake's freest and strongest vocals of his career." Read her review HERE.)

Last month, Justin Timberlake did a few interviews in Brazil to promote his new film Runner Runner, which opened this weekend, and in addition to being interviewed by Fantástico TV Globo, the actor was also interviewed by comedienne Sabrina Sato -- and things went a little strangely.

Despite Sabrina asking half her questions in Portuguese, which Justin doesn't speak, she also had difficulty pronouncing his name and even asked him what he preferred to be called.

"Justin, you sing and dance like a black American," Sato says, "do you want to learn to Samba like a black Brazilian?"

Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2' Review: Album Of The Year?

September 30th, 2013 8:46am EDT
The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2
Not many musicians would release a second album just six months after a massively successful one and a sold-out stadium tour with the reigning King of Hip Hop, Jay Z.  But most musicians aren't Justin Timberlake.  "The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2" unfathomably tops its predecessor with an operatic exploration of soul, country, funk, R&B swaddled in JT's legendary charisma.  

If “The 20/20 Experience” was about the simple act of falling in love, 2 of 2 encapsulates the complicated work of sustaining it.  The initial seduction is explored in the "Thriller"-esque "True Blood" and the ode to bedr...

While promoting his new movie, "Runner Runner" and preparing for this weekend's iHeartRadio Music Festival, the overachieving Justin Timberlake walloped fans with a new single, "TKO" on Thursday night after teasing fans throughout the day on social media.

The uptempo song details a twisted relationship with a girl who "hits below the belt."  Snap Judgment: the track is a certified banger in which JT deftly sings his face off.  "TKO" sounds more contemporary than earlier singles like "Suit & Tie"  and "Take Back The Night" which have a retro vibe.
