    • 69 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The album as a whole isn't interesting enough lyrically or musically to hold itself together.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    On My Way promises to be voted "Most likely to get lost in your collection and never thought about again."
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Shiny, soulless dance tracks that would have been mediocre even as Rick Astley backing tracks.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    An unpleasant record to listen to.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Garnier displays an ability to approximate several genres, yet betrays his fellow travelers by failing to infuse any of them with individuality or innovation.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    While Spektor possesses an intriguing voice, she uses it in such a cloying, affected manner as to be almost entirely off-putting.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    It's hard to think of any reason to buy this album, and if you do, it's hard to imagine any reason for listening to it more than once (unless you hate your neighbors or your cat).
    • 75 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Think of Beat Surf Fun as a pleasant soundtrack for pleasant times.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The group has obviously lost whatever touch they once had for making unique, interesting music.
    • 60 Metascore

    Key
    Behold 2004, your kings of yawn-rock, Son, Ambulance.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The band continuously recycles itself into a feeble mass.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The lack of distinctiveness is what ultimately makes All Years Leaving utterly forgettable.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    [They] could have easily narrowed the selections from their debut into a three song EP, or possibly even a single. In nixing eight or more of the songs from Underwater Cinematographer, the band would've also cut down on all the annoying shouting, half-melodies, pompous song structures and garbled lyrics.
