Top 15 Pop Albums, Spring 2013
Pop music has just been kind of ... weird this year, right? We've gotten unexpected comebacks galore from all over the pop-verse (J.T.! Eve! Fall Out Boy! 98 Degrees!). We've gotten a couple chart fixtures doing some interesting things (Olly Murs does America! Justin Bieber does acoustic! OneRepublic does a happy song!). What we haven't gotten is a very large number of new albums, though. Thus, this is our first roundup of new pop releases of 2013. But it's packed with the year's best new albums -- so far -- and that includes Taylor Swift's Red, which was finally just released to streaming. Dive in!
