Comment: Least Anticipated Album Of The week is won by Nickelback but with the hipster delight bearded folkers Fleet Foxes a close second. Most anticipated album of the week is a not really difficult but I’ll walk you through it anyway. The Drums last album was brilliant but what I’ve heard of the new one is disappointing, Royal Trux are a great rock band who we haven’t heard much from, Regina is a live take of a sad concert tour, Goldie is a UK legend for excellent reason -a drums and bass master, Beth Ditto splits the singles already released but she has the voice to carry anything, ditto Alison Moyet. But it is between Jason Isbell and Lorde. The four singles I’ve heard off this album, even though none is as great as “24 Frames,” they are much more consistent than the last album. Any other week I’d go with Jason for MAAOTW, however…  Lorde was superb at Governors Ball last week, and every song off the new album kicks in hard eventually and the latest “Sober,” no less than any of the others. Melodrama is the most anticipated album of the week.
