Top 20 of 2012: 17. Miguel – Kaleidoscope Dream

17. Miguel – Kaleidoscope Dream

Miguel - Kaleidoscope DreamMiguel’s sophomore LP is undoubtedly a pop album, but the L.A. singer strays away from the pop formula in one major way. Kaleidoscope Dream isn’t about how many high-profile producers or guest verses he could cram into one album, it’s about Miguel.

Miguel, whose full name is Miguel Pimentel, is much more than a voice — but what an incredible voice he is! He wrote and produced both “Candles in the Sun” and the inescapable hit “Adorn” completely solo, in addition to co-writing all the others and co-producing most of them.

It’s about time the mainstream was this good.
