top 10 albums of the year: #8


More Life - Drake

After his strong, wide-ranging record Views dropped last year and carried the summer airwaves, Drake returned again, this time with not really an album but a "playlist" of dancehall, R&B, rap, and pop. His seemingly flat, unaffected vocals belie lyrics of yearning. "Get It Together," "Passionfruit," British rapper Giggs' solo on "KMT," and moody, J-Lo sampled "Teenage Fever" are few of the highlights on this epic. Featuring a bevy of guest stars (including his mom on voicemail) and a manifold sound, More Life is exceptionally produced with smooth-as-silk transitions.

"This project is just a celebration of the fact that we're still here, still going." -Drake
