    The result is an album that is still adrift at sea, unaware of the musical landscape around them.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    The Rapture show that they are as worthy of pupils as they have been for the last decade as teachers. But, unfortunately, they still have a lot to learn.

    The most disappointing aspect about Syd Tha Kid's delivery is her inability to create a remotely compelling protagonist - something Odd Future members have proved themselves more than capable of doing.

    I'd say that MDNA is at the very least "not bad," but frankly, it's worse than bad: it's mediocre.

    [The songs'] punchiness and repetitiveness can quickly get on one's nerves, depending on your disposition.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 34 Critic Score
    With some rather boring compositions and hokey songwriting, this record doesn't have a lot going for it.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    Regardless, even the harshest of words are unlikely to stop this album from being a success. And that, well, is kind of depressing.

    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The whole thing comes off as either an expensive major label joke or nigh-impenetrable high art concept. Maybe both.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 29 Critic Score
    Future This is stuck in some kind of awful, awful limbo between Robert Smith-less Cure and hyperbolic electro dance music.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 28 Critic Score
    Wolf is a serious mess.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    From an MC that would call himself King, shouldn't we all have hoped – nay, expected – well, better?
    • 48 Metascore
    • 18 Critic Score
    It seems as though the band has completely forgotten to keep up with music in the years they've been off, instead producing some of the most banal songs by any rock band in recent memory.
