The new Dua Lipa album Future Nostalgia is sounding good. Getting great reviews.
I was pretty skeptical going in, as I'm not huge fan of mainstream pop, but wow. This album is an absolute treat. Really, really good stuff here.

SCORSESE GROUP

Mariya Takaeuchi- Plastic Love
Dropkick Murphys- I'm Shipping Up to Boston
Malcolm Middleton- Solemn Thirsty
David Bowie- As The World Falls Down

"I'm Shipping Up to Boston" will always be linked to The Departed in my mind, so the Scorsese grouping is very appropriate.

It's pretty interesting how vote splitting has hurt "HUMBLE". That song was the consensus pick for SOTY in 2017, and now it's down to #10 for the year, almost certainly because it had to battle it out with even more acclaimed Kendrick songs.
