Florence + The Machine, Gorillaz and Drake with the new and noteworthy

Florence + The Machine, High as Hope (Republic) – Florence Welch turns down the melodrama for this new set of 10 songs with laments of high-school anorexia and an ode to Patti Smith. But it’s the histrionics in tracks like “The End of Love” that still provide the most memorable moments.

Gorillaz, The Now Now (Warner/Parlophone) – Damon Albarn took risks by releasing two Gorillaz albums in a little over a year. This new studio release is a mournful call for unity in evil times, but it doesn’t carry the strident tone of 2017’s Humanz.

Drake, Scorpion (Young Money/Republic) – Maybe this 25-track beast centered on fatherhood is intended to be Drake’s magnum opus, but there’s a distance here that keeps it from being emotionally compelling.
