    Aside from a sneak peek at LP number eight though, Earth Division doesn't offer much of anything new to listeners.

    James Morrison drizzles his velvety-as-butter voice all over each of the 12 songs on The Awakening, his most recent foray into contemporary soul, where the balance between the cheerful and the cheesy works more often than not.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The classic Jane's rough edges have been smoothed out and coated in electronic confections, but there is a darker, grinding groove beneath that sonic sheen.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Although only an industry standard 12 tracks in length, Conditions of My Parole feels slightly overlong with its high points noticeably spread apart, resulting in a familiarity that detracts from its ability to unnerve.

    DRC Music may save the world after all, but they haven't done enough to make this a truly lasting effort.

    Ultimately, A Very She & Him Christmas is an enjoyable if forgettable project that its creators probably had a very fun time making.

    Ruins succeeds a little more often than it fails, and one should look no further for a new playlist to accompany a late study session or classy dinner with some hip friends.
    • 67 Metascore

    As a purely noise-laden entity, Wolfe is pleasant to the eardrums, and that makes for a modicum of interest.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Glowing Mouth illustrates Wilson's impressive, technically precise vocal diversity, if not necessarily his range.
    • 70 Metascore

    DJ-Kicks might not be Gold Panda's next album, but it's a damn good DJ set.
    • 67 Metascore

    Just as In Love With Oblivion helped them gain a better perspective on what their strengths are, the Radiant Door EP is a fitting in-between to hold listeners over until they reveal what's in store for album three.

    The peaks overshadow the valleys here, leaving an adequate showing from a guy who deserves to be taken more seriously than his looks and background might warrant.
    • 57 Metascore

    Just in time for the holiday season, there's something for everyone on Born This Way: The Remix.
    • 58 Metascore

    Sonically, The Path of Totality feels culturally authentic and trendy, while at the same time, pounding enough for mosh pits and dance floors alike.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    At the end of the day, Nothing does not seem groundbreaking because everybody is still digesting Dedication, a record that fleshes out the anachronistic ideas Nothing hints at.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Bandleader Adrian Pillado and the rest of the group work their way through their retro surf-influenced blasts of pop with ease.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There aren't as many powerful moments as on, say, a Ducktails record, but fans of that sound will find more to love here.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The album's understated bleakness could be less uniform and more dynamic, but it's still a pleasant listening experience.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As toe-tapping or even eyebrow-raising as some of rEVOLVEr's 17 songs are (overlong at 66 minutes of no skits, just music), there's little to nothing here to put it over the top.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The fact that a few more structured, disco-leaning tracks fill out the album can't entirely redeem the aimlessness that pervades so much of the disc, leaving Keep Your Dreams in muddled territory.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Dead Son Rising is neither terrible nor extraordinary.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's too often a shell without a filling to serve as a ride from front to back, on drugs or otherwise.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Equal parts good time and fresh, original takes on these classic tracks, the band offers a medley of styles that color these standards in a new light.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Exudes sheer fun as it embraces an honest love of classic House.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It took me more than a few listens to pick up on this subtle understanding of baroque rock.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The success of the album is ultimately dependent on the listener's familiarity with the original songs.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Props are in order for Green stepping out of his comfort zone. However, subsequent LPs are going to need to be more refined before they're ready to be deemed truly beautiful.
    • 76 Metascore

    Take Vodka and Ayahuasca as a testament to these guys' long-acquired mastery of their craft, even as the rhymes are generally less than striking.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Kisses on the Bottom is a respectable collection from a pop mastermind.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Wonderland may have worked better as a series of EPs, but as is the album fails to be more than the sum of its parts, possibly even hindered by poor arrangement of tracks and the odd inclusion of "The Kids Will Have Their Say."
