Bruno Mars – Doo-Wops & Hooligans: Less is more for singer/songwriter Bruno Mars. His simple approach to making records proved to be a winning formula, earning him No. 1 singles and a critically acclaimed debut album this year.
Robyn – Body Talk: After serving up delicious mini albums with Body Talk Pt 1 and Body Talk Pt 2, Robyn compiled the best tracks from each for a superb full album, packed with futuristic pop beats to be envied by her peers.
Marina And The Diamonds – The Family Jewels: The Brits are good at this pop thing. They just are. Marina Diamandis is no exception. She’s got a way with the pen and her voice is pure gold. Combine that with irresistible pop beats, and it’s a formula for an outstanding album and a future star.
