Poll: Who Do You Think Voters Will Choose For Best Alternative Album?
The 61st GRAMMY Award nominees for Best Alternative Music Album represent a group of artists pushing the limits of genre into something different and albums that take those artists' sound into new realms.
The Arctic Monkeys' Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino dives into a sci-fi fantasy world outside of earth, executed with frontman Alex Turner's suave voice. Beck, who over the years has mastered the ability to mix and match hip-hop, folk, and other unlikely combinations, delivers Colors, his13th studio album. St. Vincent blazes her own trail forward in Masseduction, in which lyrics project personal feels and thoughts about herself as an artist and a lover, while Björk's follow up to Vulnicura—which documented her break-up feels from her long-time partner—, Utopia, is a comeback filled with new ways of looking at romance and a promise to break traumatic cycles. David Byrne creates a different kind of utopia with the socially and politically analytical American Utopia, seen as his first true solo album in 14 years.
