    The 50 Best Albums of 2020: Staff Picks

    18. Halsey, Manic

    Halsey has always been an open book, but she takes that transparency to a new level on the uber-personal Manic, inviting listeners to be a fly on the wall in her alt-pop therapy session. But beyond the candid lyrics about owning her bisexuality and enduring toxic relationships, Halsey takes thrilling sonic leaps on the project -- from the country-inspired twang of "You Should Be Sad" to the syncopated handclaps of "Graveyard" -- proving she can have the best of both worlds by pairing painfully earnest, yearning sentiments with radio-ready beats. -- KATIE ATKINSON

    The 50 Best Songs of 2020

    #31 Halsey, '3am'

    Halsey sings about making it through one of those nights: The kind where you spill out of the bar too long after midnight, leaving behind your credit card and your self-esteem. So you scroll through your phone looking for the next number to drunk-dial. For Halsey in “3am,” that’s the closest she’s getting to love tonight. As she confesses: “I need it digital / Because baby, when it’s physical / I end up alone.” But she keeps hanging on the line. R.S.

    The 50 Best Albums of 2020

    #25 Halsey, 'Manic'

    Halsey has no inhibitions when it comes to getting raw emotionally — and Manic is her most fearless move yet. She chases her darkest anxieties all over the spectrum, from hip-hop to rock to country, in hits like “Without You” and “Graveyard” — the kind of album where you can find Alanis Morissette, Suga from BTS, Jennifer’s Body samples or a voicemail pep talk from John Mayer. Halsey has the too-much too-young celebrity blues: as she sings, “I remember the names of every single kid I’ve met/But I forget half the people I’ve gotten in bed.” Yet she wrestles with her issues in her own unmistakably real voice. —R.S.

    3am is my most played song of 2020 so far. I am loving the bad ass energy of it.

    I like this, it’s cohesive, Still Learning is my favourite. My problem with the album is that a lot of the songs are so short that it’s very difficult to appreciate them individually and for me it’s a major issue

    She deleted the tweet since someone on her team told her that Pitchfork's offices are located in the One World Trade Center building in NYC.

    Ugh, the second part of "Forever ... (is a long time)" is just so beautiful. One of the best moments on "Manic" for me

    Fingers crossed she gets at least A nomination for a Grammy.

    83 on Metacritic based on 12 reviews

    "hopeless fountain kingdom" has a score of 66 based on 10 reviews while "Badlands" isn't on Metacritic. So glad how critically acclaim this is. The previous album already deserved the same, but better late than never!

    I hate to admit it but this album is really good, definitely her best. I think Nightmare could’ve been put in just after 3am
    Right, I don’t see why Nightmare was excluded.

    3am is even better!

    sadly the album as a whole falls flat for me. I bet she had a concept for it. However, I don’t get it.

    so far it’s a mediocre album with 2 outstanding songs for me.

    Got my physical copy and wow, what a disappointment! I expected a nice booklet with some great pictures, but there's not even a booklet. Only a sheet with some lines written on it and the thank you notes. That's it. Ugh...

    I really like You Should Be Sad. It’s quite compelling.
