Nicki Minaj: Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded

Hip-hop triumphs over pop on Nicki Minaj’s latest album, writes Kitty Empire

Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard calls to mind Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin, writes Hermione Hoby

Florence Welch’s last proper album was too overblown; this low-key acoustic set goes too far the other way, writes Rebecca Nicholson

This ambitious new album is predominantly poppy, but it took a musician with a very broad view to make it, writes John Fordham

Indebted to overwrought early-60s ballads, and equally to the Smiths, Danny Coughlan’s kitchen-sink romance rock album is a triumph, writes Michael Hann

This four-part female harmony group from the north-east put a lot of vim and vigour into their singing, but the music doesn’t quite match up, writes Dave Simpson

Counting Crows’ new covers album does make some familiar songs sparkle in new ways, but ultimately, what’s the point, asks Caroline Sullivan

M Ward continues his careful restoration job on the sounds and styles of early-60s US pop to pleasing effect, writes Michael Hann
