A
4 points: The First Taste - great
3 points: Bring Me Down - I agree with Carbon, it's a bit fillerish but still good
2 points: Find Me a Man - yeah, Secrets is not my fav album from her. I don't like this one, especially the lyrics
1 point: Fluorescent - pass

B
4 points: Resentment - Lemonade themes before Lemonade. One of my faves on B' Day.
3 points: In God's Hands - one of her best for sure
2 points: White Light - good
1 point: Who Do You Think You Are - pass

C
4 points: Maybe Angels - amazing
3 points: Scar - one of the weaker songs on All I Need
2 points: Seduces Me - they tried to give her a sexy Latin ballad but they failed
1 point: Hutchinson Jail - she is singing the same damn song through the whole album. BEYOND boring

2 Foxes - Amazing ok, a bit too safe and the chorus is annoying. but I love the piano here
3 JONES - Waterloo I need to get this album. really lovely
4 Fiona Apple - Pale September so melancholic and very autumny. the lyrics are STUNNING, poetry
1 Nancy Sinatra - Life's a Trippy Thing these later songs of hers don't impress me at all. and I really loved her first entries
