Popdust - Best Albums of 2016 (So Far)

Kris Allen, Letting You In 
Allen has a way of assembling simple songs that pack an emotional punch. He's a singer/songwriter if there ever was one, and he never apologizes for that fact. His music is defiantly uncomplicated but with his expert phrasing, he can drive a thousand nails into concrete. His explorations with rhythm, too, are riveting. Standouts include Waves, Faster Shoes, If We Keep Doing Nothing, Letting You In and I Remember You.
