New Macklemore album: triumphant pop success

Seattle rapper Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis showed a masterful aptitude for the concept song on their 2012 smash, “the Heist” — whether that meant tracks about thrift shopping, marriage equality or the dangers of sneaker culture. On their second, 13-track album, “This Unruly Mess I’ve Made,” they’ve moved in a slightly different direction, focusing on tight lyrics and a more celebratory vibe.
