50. Demi Lovato – Demi
Demi Lovato’s fourth album is much more impressive than her previous efforts, except for the fact that ‘Demi’ didn’t have any bonafide radio singles to compete with her predecessors.
49. Snoop Lion – Reincarnated
Snoop Dogg’s Rastafarian transformation was oddly enjoyable, earning the project and Diplo a Grammy nomination.
46. Jessie J – Alive
The Brit power vocalist’s second album is vocally impressive, but I think it would’ve been better if Katy Perry was songwriting for her again (see “Domino”).
44. 2Chainz – BOATS II: Me Time
2 Chainz always has one ‘laugh out loud’ lyric on every song he’s every released, and his sophomore album ‘Based On A Tru Story II: Me Time’ is no different.
43. Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
The mysterious electronica duo Daft Punk blew the Grammys away with their numerous nominations for the album’s first single “Get Lucky” with Pharrell, but the album features some of their best music to date.
42. Kid Cudi – Indicud
The latest full-length from Kid Cudi was notably feature-heavy, but spawned collaborations from two iconic (and very random) artists – RZA and Michael Bolton.
