Giorgio Moroder, Déjà-Vu. Dance music trailblazer’s first solo album in 30 years is the year’s biggest disappointment so far. Generic dance grooves, with guests like Kylie Minogue, Sia and Charli XCX, aim to be contemporary but are plain boring and sound more dated than the disco he pioneered with Donna Summer 40 years ago (Love to Love You Baby, I Feel Love, Bad Girls) ever will. Out now.
Kacey Musgraves, Pageant Material.
Breaking Benjamin, Dark Before Dawn.
Rickie Lee Jones, The Other Side of Desire. Singer-songwriter composed her new set of songs in New Orleans.
Original Broadway Cast, The Visit. A souvenir of Chita Rivera’s just-shuttered show.
