    Perhaps the album of her career.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s as simple as songwriting can get; as striking as songwriting can get.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    No affectation, no pandering to fashion, just good old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. How refreshing.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Reveals Sam Beam to be a songwriter of exquisite talent and enviable inspiration.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Quite simply, this is the most invigorating album released in recent times and definitely one for the collection.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    ‘Secret Wars’ is an engaging 40 minutes; a haphazard, likely to spontaneously combust at any moment 40 minutes to be sure, but that was the ethic that spawned rock ‘n’ roll in the first place and in these hands there’s plenty of life in it yet.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If invention and imagination are the criteria to judge, this is a future classic.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is what you get when you give an overactive imagination the space to expand; it’s indescribably perfect.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Never happily slotting into any template demanded back in their home town, MM are nearer to some wondrous mish-mash of Pavement and Beck; closer in harmony to The Flaming Lips.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There’s no shortage of pogo anthems, reflective quiet and headspinning ideology, and never a dull moment.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Nothing less than a whole new world will do, and Adem has created just that.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It will take at least ten listens before you hear everything that’s going on, and ten more to understand it, yet this is far from impenetrable; it boasts a melody line that any pop princess would sell her plastic soul for, and prompts the idea that Knopf and his cohorts have been hanging around a crossroads doing just the same.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A taste for the exotic and a winning way with a winnowing hook leavens the most ear-shredding aural barrage, short-circuiting a connection between central nervous system and booty.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    [His] most spellbinding LP to date.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It sounds like he’s cherry-picked his record collection in an attempt to allow the listener a glimpse into his restless mind.
    • 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.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is deep, rich, slightly unnerving and very very beautiful music. [combined review of both discs]
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    ‘Tasty’, though haunted by more than a few sops to the slick-soul zeitgeist, is an impressive return.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s ridiculously eclectic, yet uniformly affecting; a winter warmer that moves with a mysterious grace.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is a rock ‘n’ roll album in the same way that ‘Fun House’ was a rock ‘n’ roll album.
    • 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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    ‘No You C’Mon’ is more schizophrenic but equally satisfying, ranging from dinner jazz to bursts of discordant piano boogie.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Disco, punk and pop, all in one bag.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    From the start, she's made an ideal record for people who already like her.
    • 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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Young pretenders beware: this old dog isn’t so much learning new tricks as inventing them.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Like an air-bushed Slint re-emerging with Stereolab as their chief influence, Blonde Redhead engulf their guitars beneath so many keyboard tinkerings.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Patchy at best.
    • 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.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What does surprise is the way the results combine Clannad with Cocteau Twins.
