26 Nov 2021, 00:24 GMT+10

Who doesn't love sitting around and listening to their favorite songs? Over the years, many musicians have created unforgettable hits that are great for working out, relaxing, or studying. Just remember that you have a favorite genre and you'll want to listen to that genre more often than not. You'll also want to keep up with the latest albums. There are plenty but some of them have been better than others. Within this guide, you're going to learn more about the best recent albums.

Exit Wounds

Can you believe it has been nearly a decade since the Wallflowers released a new album? The group was unique during the 1990s since it stood out from the onslaught of alt-rock groups. The group didn't fit into the grunge category. The Wallflowers shot to popularity around the same time as Hootie & the Blowfish and Pearl Jam. They quickly became a household name thanks to their singles, One Headlight, and The Difference, being played on the radio regularly. Jakob Dylan and the band are finally back with their first album in nine years. Plus, it is only their 7th album in almost 30 years. Nevertheless, Exit Wounds makes up for the lost time.

The album belongs to the mid-1990s but it is still full of relevant hits. Since Dylan is the only original member, it is surprising that the group managed to maintain consistency for so long. Many have argued that Exit Wounds will transform the band into the classic rock group they deserved to be. If you were a fan of their previous albums, you'll love this one.

Sound Ancestors

Sound Ancestors is a studio album that was released near the end of January 2021 by Madlib. The West Coast artist has always attempted to help fans hear what he hears. This rings true with his latest album since it will pull on the listener's emotions. The album was released via Madlib Invazion and produced by Madlib. However, it was arranged and edited by Four Tet. The album proved to be an immediate hit debuting at 153 on the Billboard 200. Sound Ancestors proved to be a major hit with fans and critics alike. On the Metacritic website, it holds an average score of 87 of 100. The Guardian's Tayyab Amin called the album a perfect 5 out of 5.

Although it had a lot of tracks, the album's best tracks were Road of the Lonely Ones and Hopprock. Nevertheless, all of them are great in their own unique ways. It is a good album to enjoy while playing บาคาร่าสายฟ้า.


With the ongoing pandemic, it has been hard for artists to release new albums. Nevertheless, Olivia Rodrigo found a way. Sour is her debut studio album. It was released via Geffen Record on May 21, 2021. Sour was recorded in isolation during the lockdown so it is unlike anything else. It was produced by Dan Nigro. Although the album fits into the pop music genre, it also has pop-punk and alternative rock elements. It was initially planned as an EP but it was expanded after the song 'Drivers License' became a bit hit. Critics agree that this album was a good debut for the artist.

Many agree that she is the new face of Gen Z pop. On Metacritic, the album has an 83 of 100. It remains one of the best albums of 2021.

Little Oblivions
