  This year, pop's best albums came from strong women who had a lot to say: Lorde's searing look at loneliness, Kesha's raucous statement of liberation, Taylor Swift's reckoning between her self and the version presented in the press.

  今年的最佳流行音乐专辑出自几位有许多话要讲的女强人:洛德对孤独的深刻思考,凯莎有关解放的强烈表态;泰勒·斯威夫特就真实的自己与媒体中所呈现的个人形象而与他们算总账。

  But pop's wider world also offered a lot of pleasures from artists all over the spectrum, such as the 20th century legends like Blondie and Tori Amos, and upstarts like Dua Lipa and Girl Ray.

  不过流行音乐更为广阔的世界也为我们带来了诸多乐趣,这些乐趣来自各个音乐领域的艺术家,例如像金发女郎乐队和托丽·阿莫斯这样的二十世纪的传奇人物,以及像杜阿·里帕和“Girl Ray”(女子射线)组合这样的新秀。

  Lorde, 'Melodrama'

  洛德《情景剧》

  At age 20, the teen prodigy of "Royals" raised the bar, marrying the massive vistas of electronic music alongside the human-scaled and handmade on her second LP, with help from co-producer Jack Antonoff.

  这位曾演唱过《Royals》(《皇室贵族》)的少年天才在20岁的时候就在联合制作人杰克·安东诺夫的帮助下更上一层楼,把对电子音乐的无限展望与人类的尺度结合在一起,亲手打造了自己的第二张专辑。

  The invulnerable singer broadened into a wider emotional palette – musical too, with guitars and brass lacing through synthetic beats and dub effects. It could recall art-rock godmother Kate Bush (see the single "Green Light").

  这位无懈可击的歌手用吉他和铜管乐器合成的节拍和强节奏的音乐效果展现了更为广阔的情感和音乐世界。它会使你回想起艺术摇滚乐教母凯特·布什(你可以去听一下《Green Light》(《绿灯》)这首歌)。

  Kesha, 'Rainbow'

  凯莎《彩虹》

  After her legal travails , anything Kesha released would have a veneer of triumph. But this comeback set was an artistic warrior cry more potent than any might've expected.

  在经历了艰辛的法律诉讼之后,凯莎发表的一切都会给人一种胜利的假象。但这张回归专辑用艺术反映了一位勇士的呐喊,并带来了比所有人期望中更为强大的影响力。

  It is an acoustic guitar-led anthem and instant lighters-up classic, pivoting into punk-pop with Eagles of Death Metal on "Let 'Em Talk".

  凯莎与死亡金属之鹰乐队联合创作了《Let‘Em Talk》(《让他们说去吧》)这首流行朋克风格的歌曲,它以吉他原声为主导,是一首能够瞬间引爆全场的经典之作。

  Taylor Swift, 'Reputation'

  泰勒·斯威夫特《名誉

  After laying low for months, Taylor made a spectacularly bold return with this new album.

  低调了几个月之后,泰勒携新专辑强势回归。

  "Look What You Made Me Do" is one for the history books, and pop scholars will likely debate for generations whether it was a brilliant P.R. coup or not.

  《Look What You Made Me Do》(《看看你们都让我做了什么》)这首单曲可以载入史册了,流行音乐学者们可能会世世代代地讨论它是否是一次绝妙的公关行动。

  Luckily, the singles are only half the story with Reputation. On "Dress," she's high on the rush of a new romantic thrill; on "New Year's Day," she's trying to figure out what she has after the party's over.

  幸好这类单曲只是《名誉》这张专辑的一部分。在《Dress》(《连衣裙》)这首歌中,她沉醉于令人激动的新恋情里;在《New Year’s Day》(《新年》)这首歌中,她试着弄明白聚会结束后她还拥有什么。

  It adds up to a pointed reminder that Her Royal Swiftness can reclaim her place at pop's cutting edge whenever she feels like it.

  这张专辑等于是一次直截了当的暗示,提醒着我们,不论什么时候,只要霉女王想要,她就能拿回自己在流行音乐界的领先地位。

  Sam Smith, 'The Thrill of It All'

  萨姆·史密斯《痛快感受》

  Sam Smith is a fluid soul man, with style channeling Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles alongside modern icons like Amy Winehouse and Adele.

  萨姆·史密斯是一个风格多变的男人,他可以在奥蒂斯·雷丁、艾瑞莎·弗兰克林和雷·查尔斯以及像艾米·怀恩豪斯和阿黛尔这样的现代偶像的风格中随意转换。

  The standout is "Him," a tear-jerker about queer love and cultural intolerance that, in its understated way, is an LGBTQ civil rights anthem.

  这张专辑中十分突出的一首歌《Him》(《他》)以低调的方式讲述了一个有关同性恋和文化偏执的催人泪下的故事,是一首倡导非异性恋者公民权的歌曲。

  Harry Styles, 'Harry Styles'

  哈里·斯泰尔斯《哈里·斯泰尔斯》

  After a run with One Direction, Harry Styles could have gone anywhere he wanted.

  退出单向乐队之后,哈里·斯泰尔斯可以去自己想去的任何地方。

  What would he try for his solo move: "Sweet Creature" and "Ever Since New York" are intimate acoustic ballads; while "Kiwi" lets him strut his Oasis-style self at top volume. "Two Ghosts" is a break-up lament .

  他会在自己的独唱专辑中尝试什么样的歌曲呢:《Sweet Creature》(《可爱的人儿》)和《Ever Since New York》(《自从来到纽约》)是温馨的原声抒情歌曲;而在《Kiwi》(《奇异果》)这首歌中,他大声地炫耀着自己的欢乐;《Two Ghosts》(《两只幽灵》)则是一首为分手而惋惜的歌曲。

  Unlike most boy-band dudes going solo, he never sounds like he's sweating to get taken seriously – he never loses touch with the exuberance and swagger he brought to One Direction in the first place. So get used to this man – you'll be hearing a lot more from him.

  他不像多数脱离男子组合单飞的歌手那样,听上去从来都不会像是迫切地想要得到重视。他从未丢掉最初为单向乐队带去的那种热情洋溢和神气十足,所以试着去习惯他,你会从他那里听到更多动听的歌曲。
