    There’s little in the way of straightforward rock here[;] instead they have opted to renege on their commitment to flat-four crunch and embrace melodicism...and experimentalism.

    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.

    • 80 Critic Score
    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.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fragmented and disturbing, yet thoroughly refreshing.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s ridiculously eclectic, yet uniformly affecting; a winter warmer that moves with a mysterious grace.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    This is a perplexing album: two excellent singles, a few stellar moments of vicious riffage, but little to assuage that lingering sense of emptiness.
    • 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
    Here their ambient electro is enhanced with a melange of influences that include soul, jazz and - a real winner this - Brazilian psychedelia.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is evocative music. It’s beatific, charming, sophisticated and cool.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There’s plenty of impressive tongue-twisting here, but as the re-working of ‘Feel So Good’ illustrates, he’s even more impressive when he slips down a gear to work the ladies.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The band's most accessible, blithe pop record to date.
    • 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.

    Shows that Jon Langford’s voice has lost bite but gained growl.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Often you’re left amazed at the fact that this is the work of just one man.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What does surprise is the way the results combine Clannad with Cocteau Twins.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    ‘Tasty’, though haunted by more than a few sops to the slick-soul zeitgeist, is an impressive return.
    • 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
    • 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.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s gorgeous, moving and magnificent.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A confusing listen.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Disco, punk and pop, all in one bag.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, many of these mixes were submitted either by talented fans or lesser known professionals, and often they’ve removed much more than they’ve put in.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Horrid, mannered late Sixties-styled easy-listening wank.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Off-kilter, irreverent and unbelievably addictive.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There’s no shortage of pogo anthems, reflective quiet and headspinning ideology, and never a dull moment.
    • 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.
    • 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.
