    Every single song is an hummable masterpiece of pop experimentation.

    Spoon rebounds from the insurmountable challenge of following up the colossally brilliant Girls Can Tell with an equally impeccable album.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is not an easy record to absorb. The band’s rough-hewn production is tinny and sonically chaotic, but underneath the surface noise lurks one of the finest records of the year.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Once all the influences roll off your tongue, however, you’ll find yourself speechless before the excitement this album will invariably instigate.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The sonic consistency may bore fans thirsting for more of Cornelius’ spastic and unpredictable eclecticism, but the ensuing stereophonic experience is second to none.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Plenty of bands have hooks and good songs and retro-garage sounds, but none compares to The Strokes.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    As difficult as it is gorgeous, Vespertine ranks among Bjork’s finest albums.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An astoundingly seductive debut.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Gorgeous, lush, and surprisingly optimistic.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    OnOffOn is the aural resurrection of a band that still matters.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Last Exit is a monumental debut... on par with It’s My Life or Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It is the band’s most fully realized musical achievement.... A monumental album by a monumental band.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Gimme Fiction may not be your favorite Spoon record right now, but give it a few years.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The band’s finest release by far, it’s a swaggering, head-long dive into funk, rhythm and blues, gospel, roots rock and roll, and disco but with a very sleek modern edge.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Elephant is a startlingly dark and consistent record, incorporating frequencies never before heard on a White Stripes album.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is arguably Idlewild’s finest hour.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A classic party record from start to finish.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is Mission of Burma’s most aggressive and impassioned record to date.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Even though Guero sounds familiar sonically, it still pushes Beck further into a league that he all but owns.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is dance music with unquestionable soul.
