    Two heads aren’t necessarily better than on! Fire Songs isn’t a terrible album, it’s just a little too sweet and safe for this writer’s ears.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Dismal offering from would-be R&B Lothario, this 14-song supposed sexual odyssey is more like a soundtrack to a day in the life of Mr Bean than Hugh Hefner.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    More shouty rock and party anthems from the valleys.
    • 69 Metascore

    New mexican drone rock duds. Tune free zone.

    Freddie-less queen fail to recall old glories.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Cutting to the chase, this album is full of Rihanna b-sides that sound like a carbon copy of everything in the charts right now and are completely personality free.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Hard-working hat-wearing ‘Had A Bad Day’ songwriter Daniel Powter’s third album is a bit of a mess when all’s said and done.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    'Craig Nicholls’ mob spectacularly fall from grace.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Not up to par with his other albums, Tom Jenkinson's latest work is saved only by his name and not his art.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Shallow and unfunny third album from london boys
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Poor man’s Usher wallows in hip-hop cliches.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Try-hard, but ultimately mediocre R’n’B comeback from disgraced singer.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    Please, please, please ignore this album. Uncle Dysfunktional is a wretched experience. Ryder bellows his way through it all, banging on about drugs and low-life in a voice that can barely muster a tune.
