Comment: As a huge Dolly Parton fan, I must admit that when I saw her last year at Forest Hills, she didn’t deliver the goods, and she hasn’t released an album I’ve loved 2011, her latest is a children’s album so the anticipation level isn’t what it might be for I Believe In You. Wolf Alice have a huge release, and the singles haven’t been great and haven’t stuck, same exact thing with Shania Twain and Echosmith. Miley Cyrus is just too weird for my taste, I lost interest in Pere Ubu after Peter Laughner died, Scream compiles what it calls  a “Halloween album” with mysterious theme songs. Ibeyi are nice girls but overrated, David Crosby has a jazz album and I have nothing to add to that announcement (Actually, I have one thing to add: I heard it on NPR and was not thrilled). So since we’re not going with Dolly for most anticipated, what does that leave us? A toss up between Demi Lovato who has released a slew of great songs from upcoming, big time pop album, and Benjamin Clementine, who was terrific at Mercury Lounge a couple of years ago, and has three great songs so far off the upcoming album. I’m going with Clementine.
