EDITORS’ NOTES

Mendes blossoms on his soulful second LP. Illuminate expands on the promise of the social media star’s 2015 debut (and his many online dispatches) with a set of introspective, blues-driven pop that recalls the guitar-born elegance of John Mayer (“Ruin” ) and the melodic verve of Ed Sheeran (“Three Empty Words”).
