Beyonce – BEYONCE (2013)

Appearing overnight on iTunes with no advance notice or advertisement, this surprise studio album by the superstar performer is the kind of reinvigorating departure that can redefine a career. From beginning to end, Beyonce experiments with different vocal and musical styles that show a new, exciting side of the performer, and while the album has no obvious monster smashes it has a consistent and thrilling overall atmosphere. Songs like “Drunk in Love,” “Pretty Hurts,” “Haunted” and, especially, “Flawless” are modern pop masterpieces that will likely stand the test of time.
