Be In The Moment (ASOT 850 Anthem) – Armin van Buuren – this guy is easily the King Of Trance, and the house drums that open the song make you hope for the best and opens the track are a promise, the promise is this’t a new old pop t and beats track…  he fulfills with ease – B+

He Promised Me – Bebe Winans, Kianda, Tobbi And Tommi – State of the art Gospel with a steady beat – B-

The Joke – Brandi Carlisle – I am proud of her for coming out in a state of red not known  for their embrace of other lifestyles, but man she sucks – D+

Jingle Bells – Bret Michaels – I’d like to take those bells and stick em up his nose -MUST TO AVOID – D

Tryin’ To Untangle My Mind – Chris Stapleton – My feelings about this overwrought turkey dinner with all the trimmings is well documented, add a terrible guitar solo to the mix and here we are – D+

We Gotta Get Out of This Place – Dan Auerbach – Not a bad take on the Eric Burdon classic, he captured that 60s soul vibe – B

We Fight – Dashboard Confessional – Former king of emo has a pretty but bland little song here – C+

Crumbs – DRAM, Playboi Carti – DRAM was the best thing about Kendrick’s performance earlier this year. The man has the voice and so does Playboi on this dis track (they have bread, we have crumbs) – B+

Hola (featuring Maluma) Flo Rida – Excellent tropical house dance fire pop…  if this doesn’t break big time I’d be shocked – B+

More – Hunter Hayes – Have I already used my turkey joke? Anyway, this is relatively alright, a country pop sweet stroke – B-

Queen – Jessi J – Great, just what we want: Jessie J on self image… apparently she loves her skin – C-

Échame La Culpa – Luis Fonsi, Demi Lovato – Flat out masterpiece best single of the year (if it hits it will certainly be a contender, hooky as fuck, tuneful as hell, and with Demi getting the last word on ending a relationship, “maybe like the Beatles, baby, just let it be”. – A

Hooked On It – Luke Bryan – He makes fishing sound like a crime against nature, which it might be but I don’t see why he wants to sing about it – C-

Home (with Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha) – Machine Gun Kelly, X Ambassadors, Bebe Rexha – All this talent and all this talent for nothing, absolutely generic pop move -D+
