    Seabed is the worst of all worlds, all fluff without substance and repetition without meaning.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The result is an album of experimental electronic pop that, sadly, doesn’t do much of any consequence, sounding both big-studio glossy and curiously cheap, busy but largely flailing around in the hope of finding an interesting direction.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Words and Music by St Etienne really brings it on itself, and the result is totally vapid.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Magna Carta’s a mess, and not even an entertaining one--it’s simply a dull record by someone who’s in deep danger of going down as a dull human being.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Ultimately, it’s a failure of imagination--reflecting either a deficiency of talent and/or invention on Derulo’s part or his complete contempt for the listener.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Too True amounts to little more than a succession of cliches and wall-to-wall empty stylisation, with the femme four-piece seemingly unaware that mimicry is not art, and nor is seriousness the same as being a serious artist.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    From the orchestral string intro of ‘Marilyn Monroe’ to the funk-rock jam session that ends ‘It Girl’, G I R L is 45 minutes of warmed-over retro-pop pastiche, cribbing from Michael Jackson and Chic, from disco and yacht rock.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    What strikes you first about Album Title Goes Here, apart from the moronic postmodernism-for-tweens title, is how resolutely un-danceable it is.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    The lyrics are at best perfunctory, at worst an insult to anyone who isn’t a total nork.
