    This is a just a great sounding record. In truth; just great, period.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ufabulum easily stands as his strongest and most consistent work since Go Plastic.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Royal Headache's debut begins in a pounding, pummeling riff-based rampage, all double-timed guitar strumming and frantic one-two drumming. "Never Again," the lead off track, runs as fast and hard and ragged as any punk anthem, taking the corners with two wheels off the ground.

    Everything [on Dismania] has weight. And makes just about anything (other than the examples cited above) that's been calling itself Retro/Garage/Psych Rock sound, suddenly, rather tame.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Internal Logic pits fractious churn and friction against head-spinning harmonies, and here's the surprise, everybody wins.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Tucker has a remarkable grasp of melodic, psychedelic pop; his album - 35 minutes of pure psych power - will stimulate the senses and take one's mind elsewhere.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Japandroids sophomore effort is loaded end to end with great songwriting and the joy they've found in their influences.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    These songs are like pearls, lustrous, unknowable and happiest next to bare skin.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What is the Meaning of What is a copious groove intensive monster of a dance-punk record.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is the third album Stuart has done with this band, and they continue to find surprising and delightful ways to rev up Stuart's performances.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Once again breathing new life into an old form, The Sugarman Three are back to show us all How It's Supposed To Be Done.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's an A-list of contributors for sure, but what's most impressive is how Hogan makes each offering her own.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Cut for cut, Big Station is as strong a record as he's ever made.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It has the breadth, intelligence, mystery and ambitious arrangements of a major work. With 19 songs, it's maybe a touch too long, but almost every song is vivid in its poetry and instrumental coloration.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Unlike its meandering, esoteric predecessor, the gorgeous Under the Pale Moon is an affair more focused in thought and sincere in song.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    To drag out a well worn cliché, The Best of Quantic is the proverbial embarrassment of riches, but boy is that true. This is just a feast of plenty for anyone interested at all in smart, sophisticated, well conceived and recorded global music in the 21st century.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Excellent.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If Laswell hasn't made his masterpiece--and it's easy to argue that he has--clearly he's come close.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With its near-perfect balance of power and tunefulness, Carved Into Stone rumbles with tracks that practically define heavy metal.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An exciting and distinct new spin on the dreampop revival.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Surprisingly sedate for a final blow-out, Throw It to the Universe sends The Soundtrack of Our Lives down the road to retirement with beauty, class and grace.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Rhythm and Repose [is] the superb solo outing from Glen Hansard.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    K7 is doing its best to keep the tradition alive, and Foals' contribution is a curatorial coupe des grace.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Everything is pushed harder, faster and into more extreme corners on Unsound, and, remarkably, the band seems to get tighter and more impactful as things become more difficult.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Skelethon ranks among Aesop's greatest work yet.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Another cohesive set that plums the same territory songwriters have spent centuries on, - that Mandell can still rivet our attention is testament to a great songstress.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Yellow & Green documents the evolution of Baroness from great metal band to great band.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With their latest offering Carry Me Back, the banjos are ringin', the mandolins are singing at the speed of a hummingbird's wings, the fiddles are sawed upon with vigor, and the fog of the Tennessee hills calls to all of us.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A magical must.

    This Ain't Chicago does exactly what it's supposed to do: make you wish you were there.
