    • 83 Critic Score
    So maybe Black Foliage can be a bit self-indulgent and uneven at times (the short connecting tracks that recur throughout the album, for example), but such missteps go along with a brimming imagination that boldly explores the outer limits of rock's subconscious.

    • 83 Critic Score
    As studio swan songs go, this sounds pretty darn good.

    • 88 Metascore

    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    A welcome return.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
