ROBBIE WILLIAMS   "the heavy entertainment show"  cd,  2016:

ex-boy bandvocalist Williams' eleventh solo set...
reached #1 in his homeland (only one hasn't reached the chart summit)...
often cheeky, double edged meanings in his lyrics so you can take 'em how you want to...
all round nice guy and all round entertainer also...
not his best album but still ok...

the first single from the album, a tongue -n-cheek  dig at Mr Putin:

LADY GAGA  "joanne" cd,  2016:
her fifth if you include the Bennett duets album and fourth if you don't....
none of the 'pokerface' type pop on here...
a mature sounding album...
stripped back music for the most part for Gaga to showcase her vocal ability....
her worst selling album, barely shifting a million copies worldwide, a long way from
her debut, The Fame, which sold almost twenty million...
a classy album, by far her best IMO...loving just about every track on this one
and impossible for me to pick a best track...

ELLIE GOULDING  "halcyon days"  cd,  2013:

her second album was called "halcyon", this one is a re-issued version
with extra tracks...
not sure why she did it because the original sold reasonably well...
a nice pop album, nothing as annoying as "love me like you do" which came off the third album...
a pretty good album IMO...

ED SHEERAN  " ÷ "   cd,  2017:[/i]

from Hallifax, not Nova Scotia near SteveO, but Yorkshire, UK...
Ed's third, my third also...
guessing he dreams of being a mathematician with the titles of his albums so far !...
the first two were pretty good, but each had a couple of dud tracks IMO...
this one has no filler, all class...
and instead of simply going acoustic, he employs a band  on all tracks this time....
pop, ballads even a hint of rap on one track, the rap is performed by Ed himself...
album has sold almost seven million copies since it was released back in march of this year...
four singles off it also, all went platinum or multi-platinum on most countries that count...
the guy can do no wrong IMO, a great pop writer...
love the album immensely...

from the album, not one of the singles but my favourite track:
