This is for sure her best work to date. Taylor Swift's Red is an example of how working with different people can make the difference. It's amazing the way she tried to move on her artistic point of view, showing she is not a genre singer but a music artist in general.
Highlights: State of Grace, Treacherous, I Know You Were Trouble, The Last Time, Everything Has Changed and Begin Again.
Two Eleven (Brandy) ★★★★★
Brandy never was one of my favorite artists. But she surprised me with the best material in R'n'B in years. Two Eleven has no bad songs. Amazing lyrics, deep voice. If you want to listen to real and good R'n'B material, you need a copy of this album.
Highlights: Wildest Dreams, No Such Thing as Too Late, Without You, Hardly Breathing, Wish Your Love Away, Can You Hear Me Now? and What You Need.
Take Me Home (One Direction) ★★
Surprisingly a bad record from the band which surprised me this year. It's funny to see them doing this with themselves, because they did a really good job with their previous work. It's catchy, but material is doubtful. Manufactured material.
Highlights: Like While We're Young and Little Things.
Lotus (Christina Aguilera) ★★★
She is back. Christina Aguilera did an awesome job with her new album. Its production is near perfection. At the same time, she needs to take control of her voice. This is the only thing which makes Lotus not attractive at all.
Highlights: Army of Me, Your Body, Blank Page, Best of Me and Just a Fool.
