B.o.B.

Strange Clouds

(Atlantic)

Sounds Like: Bobby Ray Simmons’ sophomore is crazy star-studded (TAYLOR SWIFT) and produced to the nines, but it’s still mediocre pop rap underneath it all.

Free Association: It is now standard for rappers to go H.A.M. with their guest game.

For Fans Of: Kid Cudi/Drake/Andre 3000/T.I., Atlanta rappers’ platinum radio jawns.

 

Marilyn Manson

Born Villain

(Downtown)

Sounds Like: Manson & Co. pull it together after weak LPs to punch you in the guts with devious, morally depraved growls/moans between ear-busting guitar mayhem.

Free Association: Once upon a time, Manson’s creepy schtick was truly menacing.

For Fans Of: David Bowie x Trent Reznor, Rob Zombie/Alice Cooper, antichrists.

 

Santigold

Master of My Make Believe

(Atlantic)

Sounds Like: The fierce former A&R girl/punk frontwoman/Philly emcee’s follow-up to her self-titled debut is as sick as it could be with room for growth.

Free Association: If you have a pulse, this is/should be the soundtrack to your summer.
