1. S. Reidy & SunnyMac - SECRET ALBUM

For nearly a decade, Norman's S. Reidy has been working on his self-described style of emo rap, and SECRET ALBUM is the realization of all his prior efforts. He refers to his fourth studio album as an 18-minute trauma dump dressed up "in hooks that you can sing along with friends." That's reflected in the verbal barrages and distorted background sounds sprinkled with introspective verses on mental health, all laid over the top of beats from Wales producer SunnyMac. Ultimately, SECRET ALBUM is a collection of impressive jams that's over before you know it, leaving plenty of time to start it over again.
