    Isn’t Lorde going through a sophomore slump? I don’t see her being a viable AOTY contender

    I do agree, though i feel like Lorde’s album being critically acclaimed and all, will get some love from both pop and alternative Grammy voters. Ed sheeran will take a majority of pop, Kendrick rap, Miranda country and The Weekend similarly takes a slice of pop, rnb and urban. Those were my reasonings, but I wouldn’t be surprised if The Weeknd, Lorde or Miranda missed out.

    Right – I think people are just thinking Lorde has “a critically acclaimed album”. They forget it’s the MOST critically acclaimed of the year, tied with Kendrick Lamar. The Grammys have a half-and-half history with nominating the most critically acclaimed album of the year, but do better with most acclaimed large (i.e. Top 5 on Billboard albums), as shown below.

    I am not saying she is a lock for a nomination in any way, but having the most acclaimed album of the year always helps.

    Albumoftheyear Top Albums ALSO charting Top 5 on Billboard
    2017 – Kendrick Lamar, DAMN. and Lorde, Melordama
    2016 – Beyonce, Lemonade
    2015 – Kendrick Lamar, To Pimp a Butterfly
    2014 – D’Angelo, Black Messiah
    2013 – Beyonce, Beyonce
    2012 – Frank Ocean, Channel Orange
    2011 – Bon Iver, Bon Iver
    2010 – Kanye West, My Dark Twisted Fantasy

    There’s no tie. DAMN. is the most acclaimed album of the year, ahead of Melodrama.

    I have to agree… where in the world did someone come up with that Lorde’s Melodrama was the most critically acclaimed album of the year??? It is one of the most, for sure, but according to actual facts, Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. is the most critically acclaimed album this year.

    Here are the facts:

    DAMN. = Metacritic average score of 95%
    Melodrama = Metacritic average score of 91%

    DAMN. = 12 perfect reviews with a score of 100 (28 reviews giving the album an A grade)
    Melodrama = 8 perfect reviews with a score of 100 (17 reviews giving an A grade)

    Any questions?

    ^ Was pulling from albumoftheyear.org which aggregates major critic reviews. DAMN. and Melodrama both have a 91 on the site, tied with the same number of reviews.

    Best Alternative Music Album
    A Deeper Understanding – The War on Drugs
    A Crow Looked at Me – Mount Eerie
    Woodstock – Portugal. The Man
    Not Even Happiness – Julie Byrne
    You Want It Darker – Leonard Cohen

    Interesting… but I’m thinking Father John Misty or The National will win this one. Unless LCD Soundsystem submits here… FJM could also go Folk (he’s a former member of Fleet Foxes and they were nominated for Folk Album in 2012).

    Leonard Cohen shouldn’t be counted out as well and I guess Portugal. The Man have “Feel It Still” going for them. Also predicting The War on Drugs to break through.

    Arcade Fire would be lucky to get nominated tbh.

    Get real! Some of you are going to gag when Lorde does NOT get an AOTY nom.

    I’m sick and tired of discussing that bitch. To top it off, posters are making shit up. Claiming she has the most critically-acclaimed album of the year. Stop smoking crack!

    But do you agree with my reasoning behind it Xtina? I’m not really saying she is a shoe in but at this point you need to find someone to replace her

    Critics don’t vote for the Grammys y’all.

    Honey, I don’t agree with your reasoning. Lorde was a complete flop this era. That says it all.

    This week Shania, Demi and Miley will all be releasing their albums. It will be interesting to see both the reviews and the sales for the albums. Especially between Demi and Miley. Demi seems to be more set on getting a nomination and has been campaigning but Miley wrote the album on her own and got the bigger lead single.

    I feel like Ed, Bruno, Lorde and Gaga are all more likely to get nominated for pop album than them, but it does leave a spot open for the taking. I can see one of the two girls getting it over Kesha, Katy Perry, Harry Styles, Lana del Rey, Halsey, …
