To be honest with my readers, there hasn't really been a lot of releases this year that has stood out with me. When I say stand out, I mean gets constant playtime at home and at work for weeks/months on end. For me, Every Open Eye by Chvrches is one of the few albums I have heard this year that really resonated with me with its retro-'80s vibe. The pop hooks on the album is the best I have heard this year. Overall just a strong album, no sophomore slump with me.
