    It’s not so much that Electrelane’s signature film score sound has been replaced, more added to and built upon; becoming the veiled framework to a new - almost celebratory - level of contentment.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A below par effort by their high standards.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    It’s all very strange yet thoroughly intriguing, but it does leave you pondering the question of what direction Ghost are planning to move in next.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    His carefully constructed tales are accompanied by a warm intimacy, the folky-edge only reinforcing the emphasis on the stories.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fragmented and disturbing, yet thoroughly refreshing.
    • 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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Shows that Jon Langford’s voice has lost bite but gained growl.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Striped of its proto-emo veneer this is sterling stuff, which - although fraught with angst - is run through with a mellow, humbling tone that is as infectious and accessible as it is true to hardcore’s staunch code of ethical values.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The band's most accessible, blithe pop record to date.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Something new has been born here; its parents are every form of dance and many forms of rock, and it rolls.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is evocative music. It’s beatific, charming, sophisticated and cool.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Here their ambient electro is enhanced with a melange of influences that include soul, jazz and - a real winner this - Brazilian psychedelia.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Horrid, mannered late Sixties-styled easy-listening wank.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Kidwell has distilled hip-hop into a brew that also contains trace elements of Nine Inch Nails, neo-goth noir and the finest Bristolian trip-hop, as well as the ever-present sonic manipulations that result from a very big iPod and a brain to match.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pierce consistently avoids the disturbance of breakbeats and jump cuts, instead rolling the elements into a smooth melange of sound that references world, dance and folk music, yet transcends all.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A collection of chaotic - yet charming - avant-pop rooted in Japanese culture both martial and precise, like letting blood in a rock garden.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    So horribly untrendy it’s a new-black must-have, ‘Milk Man’ is the essential oddity of 2004, and a more-than-worthy successor to 2003’s magnificent ‘Apple O’’.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is like saddling up with a fearless, interdimensional astronaut; fasten your seat belts.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s Kweller’s lyrics and voice that do it though; joy and melancholy combined to deliver pop as uplifting as Weezer and rock that’s as unsubtle as Kings of Leon, with anti-folk and Merseybeat along for what is a thrill-filled ride.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Veils debut is a colossal - yet strangely intimate - record.
    • 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.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A window into the sublime mind of one of Britain’s great outsiders.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Their country-sagged beat-focused rock remains, which, coupled with some sumptuous keys and Andy LeMaster’s notoriously unnerving range, reveal Now It’s Overhead’s startling magnetism.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Their most accomplished album to date.
    • 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.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Even a half good Morrissey album is streets ahead of the competition.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s worth ploughing through the strange to get to the beautiful, disturbing, fucked-up ‘Venus In Furs’ though, worth the full five stars all by itself.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is uncommonly powerful music, created from common instruments.
    • 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.
