As Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year prepares to release her fifth album, 1989, she finds herself, as always, in the glare of a blinding spotlight of expectation – but if you think that scares her, you haven’t been paying attention. She calls 1989 her most sonically cohesive collection, and armed with first single, “Shake It Off,” she’s ready to blaze into the next phase of her still-young career, where she’ll continue to dance like no one’s watching, write like she stole our collective diary, and inevitably soar to ever-greater heights. All that’s left to wonder is how many more lives she’ll lift in the process.

Pixelscroll’s Pick of the Day for 07-16-2014!

Mandatory Fun Mandatory Fun by “Weird Al” Yankovic

Genre(s): Miscellaneous, Comedy

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
It’s oddly gratifying to see “Weird Al” put out what is clearly one of his best albums at this stage of his career. Whether it’s his inspired parodies, which perfectly pair his particular lyric style with the music of the originals (“Tacky” brilliantly spoofs Pharrell Williams’s “Happy,” for one) or his originals that mimic bands like Southern Culture on the Skids (“Lame Claim to Fame”), Pixies (“First World Problems:) and Crosby, Stills, and Nash (“Mission Statement”), Yankovic sounds energized and totally locked into what’s made him a musical-comedy institution over the last 30 years.

“Weird Al” is at his best when he brings joy to his approach to songs. On his lesser songs of the past decade, the songs I didn’t like as much were the ones where he just sounded bitter. On Mandatory Fun, however, the songs come from a really positive perspective, and the lyrics return to ideas like skewering the idea of modern fame, which makes it feel current. Additionally, he wisely chooses the big dance-pop hits of the last year or two, understanding that rock is not the big genre these days. So “Weird Al” definitely doesn’t feel out of touch this time out – he is of the moment, nailing song after song and sounding damn good to boot.

FuegoFuego by Phish

Genre(s): Rock

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
I so wanted to write my review after my first listen, I was that impressed. But I did not want to over react, so I have now got seven full listens in. This truly is very close to a five star album, if there ever was. I have been a fan since Junta, but have not liked any of their or Trey’s studio albums for a very long time (since Billy Breathes). One has to give Bob Ezrin some major credit here as the production is simply outstanding and helps bring these songs to life in a major way! From the opening jam workout on the title track, to the cool influenced Steely Dan vibe of The Line (do not blow this song off if you find to pop sounding as it really grows on you). I also love the way they let the old school Grateful Dead hop up on their horses and take one hell of a ride on Devotion To A Dream (what a cool jam on this one) and the incredible Wingsuit that closes the album (check the Ezrin influence on the jam towards the end, remember he produced The Wall along with Waters/Gilmour), this really finds Phish in a fantastic place musically! The interplay between each and every member shines though out! I have read some find the song Wombat is a questionable add, but the lyrics about the Fish TV show with Abe Vigoda are pretty amusing and the song barely clocks in at over 3 minutes, plus placed towards the end. Of course two of my favorites will always be Junta and Lawn Boy, but if some of the die hard Phish fans can’t see through the Marley smoke, they are truly missing one of the best things this band has ever created! Updated after a few more listens and this is really one bad ass album!

UltraviolenceUltraviolence by Lana Del Rey

Genre(s): Alternative Rock

From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
This is pretty much an acoustic album, heavy on piano, guitar, and drums. It gives a classic rock of the seventies feel and allows the artist’s voice to really stand out. It’s her voice that really soars on these dark ballads giving the album it’s texture and tone. The opening track, Cruel World, starts the ball rolling with beautiful lyrics and complex vocals. F***ed my Way Up to the Top features the same rich vocals and dark lyrics. This might be the one thing people will criticize about the piece, that many of the songs sound alike. But upon a second or third listen they reveal themselves to be quite unique individually as well as working together as a whole. The subtle arrangements of Black Beauty and the more complex West coast are my two favorites. I definitely had to listen more than once to really appreciate the unique music on this album.
