    Yeah, Ke$ha’s album is surprisngly fun, and trashy in an elaborate way, now that she has that ocean of great collaborators with her. I liked her before, but thought she was too uneven before to sustain an album. This was a fun consistant listen though.

    But my list would be (with shame of not having listened to Nas’ album):

    1. “Good kid, m.A.A.d city” – Kendrick Lamar
    2. “Kaleidoscope Dream” – Miguel
    3. “channel ORANGE” – Frank Ocean
    4. “The Idler Wheel…” – Fiona Apple
    5. “Visions” – Grimes
    6. “In Our Heads” – Hot Chip
    7. “Shrines” – Purity Ring
    8. “Treme” – Gaby Amarantos
    9. “The Bravest Man In the Universe” – Bobby Womack
    10. “Kindred” – Burial

    Well, El Camino came out at the end of last year, and Some Nights is kind of a crappy record.
