    Never before has there been a band that has brought all those elements [Crazy Horse, Television, Quicksilver Messenger Service and The Dream Syndicate] together in a manner so crafted and explosive as these kids do with their fevered compound of ragged rock and summertime roll.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Gold Panda seems most interested in the former on his DJ-Kicks mix, keeping the dynamics understated, but the results are consistently interesting, melodic, and effective.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Yin & Yang is an earth shattering 45 minutes of street urchin dub punk that not only reveals This Is PiL for the anti-climactic milquetoast sham that it was, but re-establishes the true soul of Public Image as it was originally intended by the vast sum of its initial parts.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Sweetheart of the Sun is something special, easily the second best album of their career.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The textures of this material will transport its listener in ways that few albums of its ilk have achieved in recent memory, implementing the hallowed harmonies embedded in the Sunday mornings of Coldwell's Catholic upbringing to a new level of impassioned cohesion.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Somewhere along the line, this became an amazing band, and songwriting/arranging this masterful elevates Blur The Line to modern-classic status, fully justifying the 5-star rating applied at the top of this review.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If Witching Hour was the finest apple the band ever produced, this is their finest orange. But as a whole, it probably is their best and most well-rounded record.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Easily absorbing subcurrents from Bollywood and bhangra ("Deeper Water") to fear-of-nature horror film soundtracks ("Out of the Woods"), This is PiL never wanders far from that fierce bass and pulsing percussion at its core.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Perhaps for the first time ever on a Chili Peppers record, it is Flea who takes the reigns as the lead instrument here, going Jaco all over this mofo so to speak, which ultimately proves to be this album's saving grace.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The record is a stellar collection of power pop rock songs.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is fun music, gut music, music you can freak out to or just nod your head, depending on your mood.
