    • 83 Critic Score
    In a meeting of the minds, the folk hero and the electronic-music guru produce an unexpectedly listenable collection of songs that doesn't really compromise either of their styles.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Sounds like they had as much fun making it as you're going to have listening to it.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Edgier and more experimental than its predecessors, The Garden also ramps up the chill factor.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Her vocal quirks can take some getting used to, but the oblique melodies and cosmic lyrics in songs such as "On the Radio" and "20 Years of Snow" demonstrate what a remarkable talent is mixed in with all the idiosyncrasies.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    For a bunch of jokesters, these guys deliver some seriously good music.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The group sounds as wonderfully debauched, degenerate and dejected as ever.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Along the way, it scores a lot of points, thanks to Nigel Godrich's earthy but twisted production.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    [The Crane Wife] not only matches past pop glories, in most cases, it tops them.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    'N Sync reminds us why boy bands were put on this earth in the first place: to have a good time.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Armed with a summer anthem and all ("Lucy Doesn't Love You"), it shouldn't be long before Ivy's popularity grows.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The Jaxx prove they can make this old house music exciting and new.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Just when the bombast teases with sounding like nails on a chalkboard, the band turns things around to remain more cool than annoying.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Some of the livelier tunes don't suit her as well, and neither does overproduction. Luckily, Rosey's vocals shine through where it counts.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Home is a raucous acoustic album that mows through bluegrass and traditional country with a vengeance.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Nothing here is as generous as the hooks found on the band's sole hit (you may remember "Natural One" from the Kids soundtrack), but there's plenty of mournful rock for the mopers in the world.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Now You Know is full of the stuff BTS fans love: angular melodies, expansive nods to prog-rock and that droning, nasally voice that makes indie-rock geeks stand up and cheer.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    This time out, the beats are more energetic, the tunes feature more vocals, and there's a slightly poppier feel that makes it harder to get lost in than some of their previous, more spaced-out efforts.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Our adult Malkmus is less prone to toss off a half-finished rough gem and more likely to polish and polish until things are a little too shiny.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The production varies from understated to glossy, and Cash has enough presence to carry it all off.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Country's biggest commodity takes the easy way out with a meticulously picked and produced batch of tunes (see: safe) that would be impossible to screw up.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Los fans--as well as those who just love great, spicy rhythms--will quickly learn that they Canto live without this disc.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    A few more tangible melodies would have gone down well, but the overall mood is magnificent.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    But for all their influences, the Anniversary retains its own personality, with a laid-back style and pizzazz that keeps this party a pleasant one.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Taylor sounds assuredly relaxed and content.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Yeah, Issak's tunes are the equivalent of rock comfort food, but they always go down so easy.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The odd combination of Coomes' rinky-dink keyboards and Weiss' booming beat is scrappy, stripped-down and still charmingly unlike anything else out there.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Set to a backdrop that brings to mind Creed, Pearl Jam and Tool but still uniquely stands on its own, the album tackles subjects of suicide and basic alienation with relative control and directness.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It gets somewhat spotty when naughty numbers like "Bootylicious" and "Nasty Girl" swing against a praise-the-lord melody, and "DC-3" is little more than a self-referential pat on the back to friendship and success.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Like a crisp Xerox of the band's multiplatinum Break the Cycle, with everything sounding bigger, brighter and tighter.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    The Canadian rocker looks like a (prettier) member of Sum 41, sounds like a slightly less-pissed Alanis Morissette and has the streetwise 'tude of Pink.
