Am I Wrong – Anderson Paak, Schoolboy Q – Yeah, it is neo-soul with a hip hop heart, but where did that extended horn outro come from? It sounds jazzy. So everything you could want and a little more – B+

Someday At Christmas – Audra Day, Stevie Wonder – Lyrically a little clumsy, but a lovely modern Yuletide song – B

Fine By Me – Chris Brown – This guy is overextending himself, this is weak r&b disco and in a world of weeknds, he needs more – C

Everglow – Coldplay – AFter a very good first single, this is a moldy ballad – C

Dark Energy – The Cult – Hard rocking mo fo of a track, old school rock and roll that seems to wink at rockabilly before getting back to the same ol’ goth stuff – B

Fool 4 U – Mr. Little Jeans – If we have to go Scandinavian, this is the place to do it. A very strong EDM ballad, as tuneful and smart as pop gets, “Love look over my shoulder”? I did mention she was Norwegian, right? – B+

LA Devotee – Panic! AT The Disco – These guys were so close in 2008, remember “Folkin’ Around”? This has a strong chorus ruined by the middle eight – B-

Crocodile Python – Rick Ross – That fucking intro goes on for 45 seconds, and when the song hits its a serious snooze but some of those rhymes are pretty excellent: “Crocodile python, all my ice on and ain’t nobody fucking with me while the mics on”. Jahlil Beats is behind it… – B

One Million Bullets – Sia – I can’t take her voice, she is too dramatic and always has been except when Kanye gets to her and except when Guetta made her a star with “Titanium” – C
