Good debut for Broods' album. It's the first thing i've checked out by them and i'm positively surprised!

Also nice return for "Honeymoon", and always good to see Grimes in the Top10. A bit sad about Ariana's big drop but at least she's still charting :)

As for Shura, i just saw that her album is out this week so i'll definitely check it out!

Thank you for your comment! I read you like Shura's album, I'm very glad! It's one of the best debuts this year IMO :D

My chart for the month of July is taken by storm by new albums and albums by artists that I saw live in that period of time. Róisín Murphy scores her second #1 album in a bit more than one year with her fourth solo release Take Her Up to Monto, which is slowly disclosing itself to me as a cerebral concept album of pure art. Just behind her comes the debut album from English-Russian popstar Shura, whom I got to see live and meet last month. Among other artists that I experienced live, Blood Orange and Rihanna manage to enter (or re-enter) the chart with their latest releases, while Grimes even manages to place her whole discography in my chart at the same time.

Yep, unfortunately it dropped :( It'll probably re-enter in the future though, I just didn't feel like listening to it last month :oops:

You should check out the album, it's all in that vein and the quality of the songs is more or less the same throughout the whole album. Not a single filler.

I really like Allie and her style, hopefully CollXtion II is gonna slay! She reminds me a bit of some Scandinavian popstars, kind of edgy yet catchy.

Great (and expected) debut for Shura this month. Her album is really good! :)

Also good re-entry for "Anti". Can't believe it, but i'm currently getting into that album - finally!! :cry:

Loving the appearances for Grimes' "Art Angels" and GaGa's "Born This Way" as well :)

Fantastic debut for Britney's "Glory"! She definitely delivered another great pop album :D

Checked out Franks' album due to the hype around it but unfortunately it's not really mine. I can listen to it, so i don't really dislike it, at least there's that... :oops:

She embodies perfection in my eyes, yes! I'm surprised she managed to deliver another album just as good as HT.

Glory is so good, a real return to form for her!

I don't know how into R&B you are, but I am a sucker for slow urban albums with some kind of edge to them. I think Blonde will even climb in my next chart update.

Agree (even if i loved half of "Britney Jean"... :oops: )

Well, i'm not the biggest fan, so that's probably why i'm also not the biggest fan of Frank's album. But there are some R&B albums that i really liked in the past, so that genre really grew on me over the years...
