    It's a welcome change to the current hard-rock juggernaut.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Some tracks are as disconnected as a David Lynch film, but no one does misery like this neo-blues hollerer.

    • 83 Critic Score
    The long-standing ambient-techno pioneer uses everything from heart-attack-paced jungle to classically minded electronic minimalism to remind us why bands like Radiohead cite him as an influence

    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    If you're not already part of the Dashboard faithful, these tortured-by-love songs get to be a bit much.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    This disc has a clutch of songs that mix chord-y abandon with raging rock riffs--and a heck of a lot of good times.

    3D
    features several career-defining turns by superstar producers such as the Neptunes ("In My Arms Tonight"), Babyface ("Hands Up"), Missy Elliott and Timbaland ("Dirty"), with all the group's playfulness and silky-smooth funk intact.

    • 83 Critic Score
    Yes, the melodies are a little sillier this time around, however the electro-funk grooves are doubly irresistible.

    • 83 Critic Score
    She's the perfect '70s soul-funk mama, and lucky for us, she's stuck in 2004.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The lyrics are as trite and cheesy as ever, but age and playing house with No Doubt's Gwen Stefani have mellowed model-esque frontman Rossdale.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    The pretty ballads meditating on the vast wilderness and lonely highways of the great white north provide the perfect showcase for Krall's sultry voice and Costello's classic melodies.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Sure, a couple of the hokey lyrics... slightly taint the return. But pulling tricks like sampling the Welcome Back, Kotter theme for the [title track's] intro is pure genius.

    • 83 Critic Score
    Often funeral-march slow, but there are also flashes of passionate energy.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score

    • 83 Critic Score
    The best he has sounded in years.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Mann's cranky muse is consistently compelling, showcasing both her wry lyrics and terrific melodies.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Aside from the thumping groove of "Nobody Knows Me" and a few other bouncy beats, much of the electro style Madonna experimented with on 2000's Music has been replaced with warmer sounds and earthy touches, like acoustic guitars and a choir that comes from nowhere on "Nothing Fails."
    • 70 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Jet has more fun with songs like "Cold Hard B****" than most bands do during their entire careers.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    As leftovers go, this Album is refreshingly tasty.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score

    • 84 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Has a few more production touches than his past crackling work.
