MOST REQUESTED ALBUMS THIS SUMMER


“We list the most wanted albums this summer, and rank them according to hype”

With a couple of major releases behind us, it’s usually relatively quiet during the summer – But we’ve got plenty of hyped up and exciting releases coming up, kicking off at the end of July. So we took a day off from working on the upcoming Has it Leaked 2, scanned private torrent site’s and their requests list, listened to you guys via our social media channels and forum, and Googled around. Then we ranked them based on our own hype rating system. We came up with the list below, which is no way set in stone, but gives you a good indication as to what to expect the coming months. Like our previous spring list, we have skipped certain titles which have either been delayed for ages (Avalanches sophomore album), unlikely to get a release this year (Dr Dre’s Detox) or titles which lack any sort of official word (D’Angelo’s James River). And yes, HAIM’s album still lacks a proper title.

Hope everyone’s having a great summer so far. And don’t forget to tells us about the titles you look forward to!
