Selena Gomez - Stars Dance
Hot off the success of her catchy summer single “Come & Get It” comes the long-awaited solo debut from the former Disney starlet.
Gogol Bordello - Pura Vida Conspiracy
Just when you thought your favorite gypsy punks couldn’t go any further off the rails, their sixth album truly lets their freak flag fly.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
The indie folk act goes self-titled for the third album and unleashes the most raw and rambunctious work to date.
Weekend - Jinx

One Direction - “Best Song Ever”
Is it the best song ever recorded in the history of music, or just the best song that this hugely successful British boy band has released in its relatively short but meteoric career? Millions of 1D fans are screaming their opinion.
