Infinity – Mariah Carey – Wow, could this sound any more 1990s? This is not even full on hip hop flavor Mariah; this is Boys II Men flavorful with a little speed singing to give it a contemporary feel. The song ain’t bad and her range remains amazing. Mariah is having something of a great 2010s, not that anybody is noticing – B+

Hysteria – Steve Aoki, Mathew Koma – This is yet another MOR EDM track, it is all anybody records nowadays and so prevalent Skrillex and Diplo sound cutting edge. Which they aren’t – C+

Ryda – The Game, Dej Loaf – Nice mix of voices here, I was ready to dismiss it sight unheard but Dej Loaf melds well with The Game – B

I Do Not Feel Like Being Good – Ryan Adams – Good, because this sucks – D+

Do What You Like – Taoi Cruz – Do you know Taoi is a Public School kid? He went to Rugby. And then he had a big hit “Dynamite” and ordinary material like this won’t help his cause – B-

Ahha – Nate Ruess – OK, so now he has gone one for two –this isn’t terrible, nice vocal, smart tempo shift, but it isn’t great – C+

I Of The Storm – Of Monsters And Men – Nearly three years on, and this downbeat track is all they got? – C

Minimal Affection – The Vaccines – Two great songs off their last album, but neither of the two on the upcoming one is cutting it – C+

Stressed Out – Twenty One Pilots – It does take much musical knowledge to assume their upcoming album is gonna be a biggie, this is their third quirky and gorgeous song in a row – B+
