Even after some of the strong deep cuts on "After Hours", Abel is still very much a singles artist for me. The album version of "Take My Breath" was an improvement and the standout for me is "How Do I Make You Love Me?". I do agree with some of the critiques out there in that the album dips in quality in the second half. 3.5/6
Based on all the feedback I've received, Dawn FM has procured a rating, which will be added to a table at the top of the post.

It's a new week, we need a new album.

The Wombats - Fix Yourself, Not The World

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=The+Wombats&titel=Fix+Yourself%2C+Not+The+World&cat=a

Released on the 14th of January, this is The Wombats' 5th studio album.

The album began when all members were together in Los Angeles in 2019 and wrote several songs. It was then recorded remotely during several COVID-19 lockdowns beginning in 2020, with each band member in a different location: Matthew Murphy in Los Angeles, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen in Oslo and drummer Dan Haggis in London. They made a plan each day before separately recording their parts and sending them on to the producers. Haggis said that the band "explored new genres and pushed ourselves further than ever musically" on the album. {Wikipedia}

AURORA - The Gods We Can Touch

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Aurora+%5BNO%5D&titel=The+Gods+We+Can+Touch&cat=a

AURORA began production on a new album in November 2019. She hinted at plans to release a new album soon after the release of her A Different Kind of Human (Step 2) album. In an interview with Riff Magazine, she revealed she was working on two albums at once, one of which she has said is "longer into the future". Of the closer album, she stated, "The perspective is much bigger. It's still quite political, and it's still quite opinionated and it's also very emotional. It's even more about the individuals that make the army. It's an album for every individual within the big army of love". She further detailed the album in an interview with Motley, stating "My next album will be dressed in an armour of hardness. But I'm also really exploring the soft, delicate part of me, which I want to open up even more on my next album" {Wikipedia}

AURORA has already seen some relative success in 2021, with one of the singles "Cure For Me" reaching #180 in the recent Triple J H100 poll, as well as becoming a Top 10 hit on Aus-Charts Interactive.

Mitski - Laurel Hell

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Mitski&titel=Laurel+Hell&cat=a

Laurel Hell is the sixth studio album by Japanese-American singer-songwriter Mitski, released on February 4, 2022, through Dead Oceans. Patrick Hyland produced the album, which has been characterized as a record blending synth-pop, indie pop and electronic rock styles. According to Mitski, the album title is a folk term for being trapped in thickets of laurel that grow in the southern Appalachian Mountains.

Singles "Working For The Knife", "The Only Heartbreaker" and most recently "Love Me More" have peaked in the Top 50 on the US Hot Rock & Alternative Charts.

On ACI, Mitski has seen a high level of success from the singles from this album, with "Working For The Knife" debuting at #9 and going on to peak at #6. "The Only Heartbreaker" debuted at #2, and then peaked at #1 and stayed there for 7 weeks.

BROODS - Space Island

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Broods&titel=Space+Island&cat=a

Space Island is an exploration of grief and all its many dimensions: its unpredictable nature and refusal to follow any linear path, its incredible capacity to bring great clarity and transformation. The album came to life during a period of serious upheaval for lead vocalist Georgia. Having married at the age of 21, she went through a difficult divorce soon after the release of BROODS’ previous album Don’t Feed the Pop Monster (a 2019 effort that led to appearances on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “The Late Late Show with James Corden”). As Georgia turned to songwriting as a means of processing her grief, she and her brother/bandmate Caleb discovered an unlikely but wholly fitting vessel for that emotional outpouring.

Still unpacking the alt-J album! It's one of the few albums I have been intensely awaiting this year and I think it delivers, whether it gets to the heights of "RELAXER" at this stage remains to be seen. Definitely think the second half is a bit weaker than the first but I love how they continue to change things up. "U&ME", "Get Better", "Philadelphia" and "Hard Drive Gold" perhaps the highlights at this stage but hey it could easily change. 5/6 for now

I am genuinely dumbfounded at BROODS missing the Top 100 completely with 'Space Island'. What happened there? This is a band with three Top 20 albums, including two that went Top 5. Even in NZ they could only manage #13. Wowee.
I definitely need more time with the GoY album, particularly the tracks which weren’t released ahead of the album. I don’t think it’s quite as strong as Go Farther In Lightness, however that still leaves a huge range of positive feelings available, and Angel In Realtime is still firmly within that range.

The Man Himself is utterly brilliant and should really have been the lead single. As good as The Angel Of 8th Ave is, and while it’s the most similar to their previous work and a good bridge to the new material, The Man Himself is much stronger, and not such a wild departure that it would immediately alienate fans. But that’s just me wishing The Man Himself would get even a fraction of the recognition it deserves.

In The Wake Of Your Leave and Unison are also incredibly strong, and along with the two previously mentioned singles they created a lot of excitement about the album for me. At this stage none of the tracks I hadn’t heard prior quite live up to them, although I do enjoy them all to some extent. Some of the tracks on Go Farther In Lightness took a while to get through to me before I really loved them, so I’m expecting and hoping for the same here.

Hearing in advance that this album would be a new sound for the band had me curious about just what that would entail, and while the album is quite diverse in sound, they’ve retained the intensity in their music and the emotion and vulnerability is still present in the lyrics. These traits are what made the group one of my favourites in recent times, so to have them still present on the new album is all I need. It’s a new sound for the band, but with enough of the old formula that it feels like a natural progression rather than a wild shift.

It’s too soon for me to do so yet, but if I were to review it on this site right now I’d score it 5/6. For a score out of ten for the purposes of this thread, I’d say 8.8/10.

The Wiggles and Various Artists - ReWiggled

when the link for this album is created on A-C, I will post it here.

ReWiggled is a double album by Australian children's music band the Wiggles and various artists, released on 11 March 2022. Disc one is a tribute album of the Wiggles' songs reinterpreted by Australian artists and disc two is a studio album by the Wiggles covering some of their all-time favourite songs.

The album was announced on 15 December 2021. In a press release, Anthony Field said: "It's been really enjoyable and also so humbling, hearing all these wonderful artists doing their versions of Wiggles songs – they're all so very talented. And it's been a real thrill to get back in the studio together with all the Wiggles – the current members and the OG's – to record some cover versions of our own." A five track sampler was released digitally on the same day.

Charli XCX - CRASH

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Charli+XCX&titel=Crash&cat=a

CRASH is the fifth studio album by English singer-songwriter Charli XCX, released on 18 March 2022. It is her last album to be released under her current record contract with Atlantic Records. Charli announced the album title, release date, and artwork on 4 November 2021. Her website was also updated with information about the album's 2022 tour. The album was preceded by the four singles "Good Ones", "New Shapes" featuring Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek, "Beg for You" featuring Rina Sawayama, "Baby" and two promotional singles, "Every Rule" and "Used to Know Me".

Whereas Charli's prior work was known for its experimental, hyperpop production, Crash features a more conventional dance pop sound. Songs from the album include elements of pop music of the '80s and '90s, and Charli has cited Janet Jackson, among others, as a musical influence for the album. Upon release, the album received generally positive reviews from music critics.

Father John Misty - Chloë and the Next 20th Century

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Father+John+Misty&titel=Chlo%EB+And+The+Next+20th+Century&cat=a

Chloë and the Next 20th Century is Father John Misty's fifth studio album and his first full-length project since the release of God's Favorite Customer in 2018. He began writing the album in spring 2020. It was recorded between August and December 2020. He entered the studio in August having written "Kiss Me (I Loved You)", "We Could Be Strangers", "Buddy's Rendezvous" and "The Next 20th Century". Following that session, Tillman mostly conceived what the album would be and wrote the rest of the songs before recording resumed in October 2020. It was co-produced by Tillman and his longtime collaborator Jonathan Wilson. The two first recorded "basic tracks" at Wilson's Five Star Studios. Strings, brass, and woodwinds were recorded in a session at United Recordings which featured numerous musicians, including trumpeter Wayne Bergeron and saxophonist Dan Higgins. The album was engineered and mixed by Dave Cerminara and features arrangements by Drew Erickson.

Mogli - Ravage

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Mogli&titel=Ravage&cat=a

Singer, songwriter, and advocate Mogli can now add filmmaker to her list of accomplishments. After gaining international attention for her debut album Wanderer in 2017, Mogli has now embarked on a creative cinematic journey of self-discovery and healing for her new album, Ravage, out May 12.

“I have learned that it is very rewarding and can make you happy if you can be brave enough to be vulnerable,” shares Mogli. “We are lacking empathy in the world and vulnerability is a way toward more empathy. If you can share how you feel, it gives people a chance to understand you.”

The new album is accompanied by a beautiful film, which Mogli conceived, created, and executed, and features all 10 songs from the project. Throughout the film, each emotion of Fear and Bravery (played by Mogli), Melancholy, Love, Rage, Insecurity, and Mirth are brought to life through Mogli’s vision.

Harry Styles - Harry's House

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Harry+Styles&titel=Harry%27s+House&cat=a

English singer and songwriter Harry Styles announced the title of his upcoming third studio album as Harry's House on 23 March 2022, unveiling its artwork, a 40-second trailer and the album's release date as 20 May 2022. In the trailer, Styles steps on the podium of a theatre and grins while a "house façade" rises near him and synthesisers play in the background. Harry's House features 13 tracks. Joni Mitchell, who included a track called "Harry's House / Centerpiece" on her 1975 album The Hissing of Summer Lawns, tweeted that she "love[d] the title". Upon announcing the album, he set up an interactive website and a new Twitter account. The messages say "you are home" and "in this world, it's just us, you know it's not the same as it was". In an interview with Apple Music, Styles explained how he came up with the album title: "The album is named after Haruomi Hosono, he had an album in the '70s called Hosono's House [sic], and I spent that chunk in Japan; I heard that record and I was like 'I love that. It'd be really fun to make a record called Harry's House'." The album features John Mayer on lead guitar on "Cinema" and "Daydreaming".

Tate McRae - i used to think i could fly

https://australian-charts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Tate+McRae&titel=I+Used+To+Think+I+Could+Fly&cat=a

i used to think i could fly is the debut studio album by Canadian singer Tate McRae, released on May 27, 2022, through RCA Records. It was preceded by the singles "Feel Like Shit", "She's All I Wanna Be", "Chaotic" and “What Would You Do?“. McRae will embark on a tour in support of the album from June 2022.

McRae told NME in 2021 that she analysed the "structures" of albums like Frank Ocean's Blonde (2016), Billie Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019) and After Hours by the Weeknd (2020) as possible inspirations for the structure of her upcoming album. She explained to People in February 2022 that a number of her songs were "just [her] diary entries" and that when she has "ugly feelings" she writes them down.

McRae announced that she had finalized the track listing for the album and submitted it to her label on March 8, 2022, and she revealed the title and cover on April 1, 2022. After the album was originally set to have 12 tracks, McRae confirmed the inclusion of the track "What's Your Problem?" when the official track list was announced on April 11, 2022, bringing the total number of tracks up to 13.
