    • 30 Critic Score
    Single Mothers sound consistent throughout this set of ten beer-soaked songs, but after just 20 minutes, that consistency is far too homogenous and one-note to be interesting.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    They've got the speed, the outfits and the record collection, but Cerebral Ballzy's interpretation of hardcore punk never comes off as more than cartoony.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Fourth album Mirage Rock is a bungled mess of poor production and half-assed songwriting.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    By the end of Me Time, the down-to-Earth, around-the-block-and-back 2 Chainz bores.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The Day is My Enemy is an embarrassing display that inevitably ends badly.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's executed incredibly well for what it is, but what we're left with is ugly, soulless and emotionally bankrupt.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The band's decision to eschew their trademark orchestration in favour of a more synth-driven sound was, sadly, a mistake.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Old Sock [is] a pleasant, but ultimately uninspired collection that ranges from country and folk standards such as "Born to Lose" and "Goodnight Irene" to the classic jazz of "All Of Me" and "Our Love is Here to Stay."
    • 57 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    18 Months has all the makings of a smash hit, but if you're looking for substance, you're better off looking elsewhere.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    Montana's selection of trap beats falls flat. It's the kind of sweatshop beat-making mainstream producers have learned to accept as they cash their cheques.
    • 47 Metascore

    All the songs on Rich Gang bleed into one another; they all have the same slow-to-mid tempo, overproduced, synth-heavy beats; and almost all the rappers sleepwalk through their verses.
