In a world in which One Direction didn't set teen hearts afire, Texas troubadour Kacey Musgraves might be headlining this stadium show. Her third studio effort, Golden Hour, is among the year's best. It’s the kind of lovingly crafted work that feels like the warm embrace of a good friend, as she sings about sisterly love and fading romance. Fellow reality-show veteran Harry Styles has only one solo album to his name, but his self-titled debut is a surprisingly mature, if inconsistent, effort that splits the difference between the sophisticated pomp of the Beatles and the breezy Britpop of Blur.
