This year, pop's best albums came from strong women who had a lot to say: Lorde's searing look at loneliness, Kesha's raucous statement of liberation, Taylor Swift's reckoning between her self and the version presented in the press.

今年的最佳流行音乐专辑出自几位有许多话要讲的女强人:洛德对孤独的深刻思考,凯莎有关解放的强烈表态;泰勒·斯威夫特就真实的自己与媒体中所呈现的个人形象而与他们算总账。
But pop's wider world also offered a lot of pleasures from artists all over the spectrum, such as the 20th century legends like Blondie and Tori Amos, and upstarts like Dua Lipa and Girl Ray.
不过流行音乐更为广阔的世界也为我们带来了诸多乐趣,这些乐趣来自各个音乐领域的艺术家,例如像金发女郎乐队和托丽·阿莫斯这样的二十世纪的传奇人物,以及像杜阿·里帕和“Girl Ray”(女子射线)组合这样的新秀。
Lorde, 'Melodrama'
洛德《情景剧》
At age 20, the teen prodigy of "Royals" raised the bar, marrying the massive vistas of electronic music alongside the human-scaled and handmade on her second LP, with help from co-producer Jack Antonoff.
这位曾演唱过《Royals》(《皇室贵族》)的少年天才在20岁的时候就在联合制作人杰克·安东诺夫的帮助下更上一层楼,把对电子音乐的无限展望与人类的尺度结合在一起,亲手打造了自己的第二张专辑。
The invulnerable singer broadened into a wider emotional palette – musical too, with guitars and brass lacing through synthetic beats and dub effects. It could recall art-rock godmother Kate Bush (see the single "Green Light").
这位无懈可击的歌手用吉他和铜管乐器合成的节拍和强节奏的音乐效果展现了更为广阔的情感和音乐世界。它会使你回想起艺术摇滚乐教母凯特·布什(你可以去听一下《Green Light》(《绿灯》)这首歌)。
Kesha, 'Rainbow'
凯莎《彩虹》
After her legal travails , anything Kesha released would have a veneer of triumph. But this comeback set was an artistic warrior cry more potent than any might've expected.
在经历了艰辛的法律诉讼之后,凯莎发表的一切都会给人一种胜利的假象。但这张回归专辑用艺术反映了一位勇士的呐喊,并带来了比所有人期望中更为强大的影响力。
It is an acoustic guitar-led anthem and instant lighters-up classic, pivoting into punk-pop with Eagles of Death Metal on "Let 'Em Talk".
凯莎与死亡金属之鹰乐队联合创作了《Let‘Em Talk》(《让他们说去吧》)这首流行朋克风格的歌曲,它以吉他原声为主导,是一首能够瞬间引爆全场的经典之作。
Taylor Swift, 'Reputation'
泰勒·斯威夫特《名誉》
After laying low for months, Taylor made a spectacularly bold return with this new album.
低调了几个月之后,泰勒携新专辑强势回归。
"Look What You Made Me Do" is one for the history books, and pop scholars will likely debate for generations whether it was a brilliant P.R. coup or not.
《Look What You Made Me Do》(《看看你们都让我做了什么》)这首单曲可以载入史册了,流行音乐学者们可能会世世代代地讨论它是否是一次绝妙的公关行动。
Luckily, the singles are only half the story with Reputation. On "Dress," she's high on the rush of a new romantic thrill; on "New Year's Day," she's trying to figure out what she has after the party's over.
幸好这类单曲只是《名誉》这张专辑的一部分。在《Dress》(《连衣裙》)这首歌中,她沉醉于令人激动的新恋情里;在《New Year’s Day》(《新年》)这首歌中,她试着弄明白聚会结束后她还拥有什么。
It adds up to a pointed reminder that Her Royal Swiftness can reclaim her place at pop's cutting edge whenever she feels like it.
这张专辑等于是一次直截了当的暗示,提醒着我们,不论什么时候,只要霉女王想要,她就能拿回自己在流行音乐界的领先地位。
Sam Smith, 'The Thrill of It All'
萨姆·史密斯《痛快感受》
Sam Smith is a fluid soul man, with style channeling Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles alongside modern icons like Amy Winehouse and Adele.
萨姆·史密斯是一个风格多变的男人,他可以在奥蒂斯·雷丁、艾瑞莎·弗兰克林和雷·查尔斯以及像艾米·怀恩豪斯和阿黛尔这样的现代偶像的风格中随意转换。
The standout is "Him," a tear-jerker about queer love and cultural intolerance that, in its understated way, is an LGBTQ civil rights anthem.
这张专辑中十分突出的一首歌《Him》(《他》)以低调的方式讲述了一个有关同性恋和文化偏执的催人泪下的故事,是一首倡导非异性恋者公民权的歌曲。
Harry Styles, 'Harry Styles'
哈里·斯泰尔斯《哈里·斯泰尔斯》
After a run with One Direction, Harry Styles could have gone anywhere he wanted.
退出单向乐队之后,哈里·斯泰尔斯可以去自己想去的任何地方。
What would he try for his solo move: "Sweet Creature" and "Ever Since New York" are intimate acoustic ballads; while "Kiwi" lets him strut his Oasis-style self at top volume. "Two Ghosts" is a break-up lament .
他会在自己的独唱专辑中尝试什么样的歌曲呢:《Sweet Creature》(《可爱的人儿》)和《Ever Since New York》(《自从来到纽约》)是温馨的原声抒情歌曲;而在《Kiwi》(《奇异果》)这首歌中,他大声地炫耀着自己的欢乐;《Two Ghosts》(《两只幽灵》)则是一首为分手而惋惜的歌曲。
Unlike most boy-band dudes going solo, he never sounds like he's sweating to get taken seriously – he never loses touch with the exuberance and swagger he brought to One Direction in the first place. So get used to this man – you'll be hearing a lot more from him.
他不像多数脱离男子组合单飞的歌手那样,听上去从来都不会像是迫切地想要得到重视。他从未丢掉最初为单向乐队带去的那种热情洋溢和神气十足,所以试着去习惯他,你会从他那里听到更多动听的歌曲。
Paramore, 'After Laughter'
帕拉莫尔《欢笑过后》
The tension between Paramore's high-intensity hooks and withering lyrics explodes into fluorescent colors on After Laughter.
在《After Laughter》(《欢笑过后》)这张专辑中,帕拉莫尔乐队别具一格的音乐技巧和极具讽刺性的歌词焕发出了荧光般的色彩。
Hayley Williams remains a powerful up-front presence, a belter who can croon as convincingly as she can yelp. Her vocal bravado almost makes you forget that After Laughter is an up-close chronicle of her weariness with the world.
海莉·威廉姆斯依然是颇有影响力的重要存在,一位不论是低声哼唱还是大声呐喊都能令人信服的歌手。她直言不讳的勇气几乎使你忘记《欢笑过后》记录的是她对这个世界的厌倦。
Lana Del Rey, 'Lust for Life'
拉娜·德雷《渴望生活》
"You're part of the past, but now you're the future," Lana Del Rey sings on Lust for Life's opening track, "Love".
在《渴望生活》这张专辑的第一首歌《爱》中,拉娜·德雷唱着“过去的一切造就了今天的你,但未来由你决定”。
Whatever she needs to invoke the weightlessness of life in our new not-normal, she takes. "Is it the end of an era? Is it the end of America?" she intones in "When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing." "No, it's only the beginning."
在我们有别于从前的失常状态中,她用所需要的一切使人们联想到生活的失重感。“这是一个时代的终结吗?这是美国的末日吗?”她在《When the World Was at War We Kept Dancing》(《当世界陷入战争之中,我们要继续跳舞》)这首歌中吟唱着。“不,这只是开始。”
Charli XCX, 'Number 1 Angel'
夏洛特·艾玛·艾奇逊《1号天使》
Forever pop's Number One rebel, Charli XCX returned with an excellent surprise mixtape.
流行音乐界永远的一号叛逆者夏洛特·艾玛·艾奇逊带着一张出色又令人惊讶的混合专辑回归了。
With all its eccentric beats and bubblegum, Number 1 Angel feels like the purest distillation of the U.K. star's pop brilliance, whether she's working with up-and-coming rapper Cupcakke on "Lipgloss" or collaborating with M? on "3AM (Pull Up)."
不论是她与最近崭露头角的说唱乐歌手卡布卡克合作的《Lipgloss》(《唇彩》),还是与凯伦·玛丽·奥斯特(M?)合作的《3AM(Pull Up)》(《凌晨3点(停下来)》),《1号天使》这张专辑的怪异节奏和摇滚舞曲感觉就像这位英国明星的流行音乐才华最纯粹的结晶。

Dua Lipa, 'Dua Lipa'

杜阿·里帕《杜阿·里帕》
The singer/songwriter Dua Lipa has been steadily releasing a string of singles since 2015, beginning with the flirty "Be the One" and finally hitting the jackpot with "Hotter Than Hell" – both collected here on her debut album.
自从2015年,唱作人杜阿·里帕就持续发表了一系列单曲,从最初的那首轻佻的《Be the One》(《成为你的唯一》)到最后那首大获成功的《Hotter Than Hell》(《热得过火》),这两首歌都被收录到她的首张专辑中。
She emotes with some of Pink's husky attitude and some of Sia's theatrical so-over-it-ness, but she's a warmer singer than either, whether shrugging off a lover on the self-explanatory "IDGAF" or matching Miguel's intensity on the steamy "Lost in Your Light."
不论是在那首一目了然的《IDGAF》(《我才不在乎呢》)中对情人的不屑一顾,还是在那首狂热的《Lost in Your Light》(《迷失在你的光芒中》)与米格尔热烈的音乐相和,她以些许艾蕾莎·贝丝·摩儿那种深沉的态度和些许希雅那种令人受不了的夸张,强烈地表达着自己的情感,但她也是一位比这两人都要热情的歌手。
Blondie, 'Pollinator'
金发女郎乐队《花粉传播者》
Not every band can sound fresh 40 years into a career, but not every band is Blondie.
不是每个乐队都能在四十年的职业生涯中始终给人以清新的感觉,然而并非每个乐队都是金发女郎。
The album is a refreshingly fun pop gem that traverses New Wave, electro-disco and dance-pop.
这张专辑贯穿了新浪潮音乐、电子舞曲和流行舞曲,是清新悦耳又充满乐趣的流行音乐珍品。
