Lorde's second studio album Melodrama (2017) is a modern masterpiece. Infused with dreamy electropop beats, it's a raw look at heartbreak and solitude. Lorde flawlessly captures emotions like no one else, and her songwriting is powerful and relatable. Many critics have lauded the album for its honesty and cleverness; it received universal acclaim and was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2018 Grammys. Standout tracks are "Writer in the Dark," "Hard Feelings/Loveless," and "Liability," but every song is catchy and meaningful; there isn't a single skip.
