Game, Jesus Piece
Like a trophy-hungry basketball GM, Game went out and got the best squad money can buy. Though Kanye, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross all ball hard, Jesus Piece can’t even make the playoffs, thanks to Game’s airless delivery. CKyle Anderson

Lifehouse, Almería
These survivors of the early-aughts soft-rock matrix dip into blues and even country on their sixth disc, but it all suffers from a general blandness. Still, new ballad ”Aftermath” sure is pretty. BGrady Smith
