But the Weeknd dropped 3 legitimate albums. Those were not mixtapes, no matter what they're supposedly labeled as


And I feel sorry for those of you who cant find one album a month to enjoy.

I'm with you, but there's a difference between a free album (1977, House of Balloons, Nostalgia and so on) and a mixtape (Gucci Mane, Fabolous and so on). Unless this topic is about retail albums, then free albums would run my list. The Weeknd, The Dream, Frank Ocean and so on.

Nothing else really worth a mention to me. WTT was whack, Wale and Cole disappointed, Take Care was mediocre, Carter IV was terrible.

@dvdjamm - Ooops, yes I mixed up the Common album, however I'm very glad that he came out with something strong. I was disappointed in his previous 2 releases.

And I have no idea where to put Amy Winehouse's album, it's excellent, but many songs on it are covers or re-releases.
