    • 70 Critic Score
    A below par effort by their high standards.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The defining characteristic of ‘Happiness In Magazines’ isn’t its full sound, nor its sharp reminder of what a great band Blur used to be; its in the sheer imaginative scope.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Nothing less than a whole new world will do, and Adem has created just that.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The key is - unlike the tongue-in-cheek cock-rock of The Darkness and the running joke of Electric Six - Scissor Sisters are reverential to the sounds of the 70’s.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It most probably won’t attract new fans, but Margo Timmins’ voice is as unique as Thalia Zedek’s, for example, and remains their greatest asset.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    His mumbled burr recalls that half-awake state where reality melts, a strain of Southern Gothic best listened to at 3am with a half-empty bottle of bourbon and all the lights on.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    From the start, she's made an ideal record for people who already like her.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Quite simply, this is the most invigorating album released in recent times and definitely one for the collection.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Though Auf Der Maur has run off with their blueprint and built it as seen, there’s raw passion and no little class here; Corgan and Love must be rueing their luck.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is what you get when you give an overactive imagination the space to expand; it’s indescribably perfect.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Felix Da Housecat’s shift into the wastelands of punk- funk and No Wave has given ‘Devin Dazzle And The Neon Fever’ the feel of an excursion into virgin territory.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Bazan will never sound truly happy on record, but here he’s as content as anyone could have hoped for, and all the healthier for it.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The names Pitchshifter, Nine Inch Nails and Rammstein are often bandied about in this company, but here’s a tip: Skinny Puppy have rendered them once again irrelevant.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A significant broadening of the tonal spectrum notwithstanding, the outfit manages to keep their ferocity intact, although the malevolence is structured with a shrewd infusion of melodic vocals, flourishing experimental dynamics and a motherlode of striking riffs.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It isn’t the place of a debut to straddle styles as diverse as harmony-drenched 60’s beat-soul, the shoegazing sound-paintings of the 80’s and relaxed futurism of now, yet this is their debut, and it covers all this and more.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unfortunately there are only flashes of Curtis breaking free of the overwhelming dominance of their prog tendencies. When used sparingly they are rich and absorbing, but in these instances they lack impact.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, whereas sounding out of place in the late 90s worked in their favour, in the mid-noughties the lack of pretty faces, Converse Allstars and - perhaps most important of all - any half-decent tunes is unlikely to bring Gomez first prize even in their local pub’s battle of the bands.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even a half good Morrissey album is streets ahead of the competition.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Their most accomplished album to date.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is music best heard in the dark, on your back.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Mirah’s ability to paste candy-pop nursery rhymes over voluptuous, macabre arrangements is truly unique and wholly un-matched.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s as simple as songwriting can get; as striking as songwriting can get.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Catching electronica in it’s embryonic state and somehow fusing it together with lush folk stylings, weathered ambience and the slightest - most beautiful - trace of vocals ‘Summer Makes Good’ is a truly breath-taking record.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Patchy at best.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Perhaps the album of her career.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A collection of frisky funk, slinky soul, raucous R&B and heated rock ‘n’ roll based on real songs, rather than the doodles and sketches that have recently become the norm.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If invention and imagination are the criteria to judge, this is a future classic.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Veils debut is a colossal - yet strangely intimate - record.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    By far her best yet.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A window into the sublime mind of one of Britain’s great outsiders.
