    All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone is an intensely atmospheric album, and stands as one of the band's stronger releases.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The instrumentation is superb, the record feels unforced, and the music is heartfelt.
    • 81 Metascore

    However early in the voting period we may be, Drums and Guns will undoubtedly go down as one of 2007's strongest albums.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The strength of Person Pitch is that it really doesn't matter what label might be affixed to it; quite simply, it is a gorgeous album from beginning to end.

    A delirious fever-dream of an album that continues to impress with each consecutive listen.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Well worth the wait.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Boys Night Out and producer Lou Giordano (Sunny Day Real Estate, Paul Westerberg, Taking Back Sunday) still have taken a fragile overarching concept and pulled it off, delivering one of the strongest rock releases of the year.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    There are no apologies necessary for this wonderful debut album.
    • 78 Metascore

    Although the new parts of their "new" album aren't the best, the band certainly deserves some praise and attention for the marathon of 2006. The Broken String will be noticed by at least a few people.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Each of the eleven tracks within Grand Animals can be broken down and taken apart as a stand-alone piece--individually they hint at manner of pop rock sounds--but none carries enough weight to eclipse the album.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The tracks are both individually strong and do work as a whole, though not in the way the group necessarily intended.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Distortion is really a triumph of the evening-out.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    While the record pleases on most all levels, the flavor of sound at times feels somewhat generic and a bit too lethargic, which keeps the disc from being great.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    How does it compare to his previous three records--or eight, if you count his former band? Suffice it to say that's a rhetorical question. If Joe DiMaggio made albums... well you get the point.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    While the production values on the album are stronger, so is The Odd Couple's focus on Cee-Lo's voice.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    The album embodies the highlights of the band's past work, and is imbued with the progressiveness that has made each successive Ladytron release a step above its predecessor.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    This maturation of lyrical character is the Bonnie "Prince" Billy we would hope for and expect at this juncture in his career. While there may always be a darkness, it's refreshing to bask in his newfound light.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Tastefully fashionable, Saunier's truly grandiose drumming bits serve to keep the listener well entertained while never flagging as the band's backbone; Dieterich, now bolstered by Rodriguez, sharpens the material with catchy guitar riffs; and Matsuzaki's well-timed and particularly soft voice provides plenty of flavor. Never conventional, bordering on the impractical, the formula nevertheless works.

    Without a heavy-handed disposition, Department of Eagles manages to convey the sentiment of another time while reaching a modern audience.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    While Veckatimest contains just over fifty-two minutes of some exceptional music, it lacks one critical component that's essential to any form of art: emotion.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Hometowns has an earthly fragility, folksy without being folky. Score another one for Canada.
    • 73 Metascore

    An hour or so later I finally succumbed to my bed, content. I can only imagine Riceboy does so in kind.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    An entire album as powerful and immediate as Scars sounds enticing in theory, but Basement Jaxx knows better than turning a single, creative sound into a stale, contrite formula, especially when an unprecedented amount of talent is at their beck and call.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    For such a dense, demented album to have a definite ending should assure listeners otherwise afraid of institutionalization that further listening will not only be safe, but worth it even if it wasn't.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's really hard not to get excited about this. Perhaps the bar just gets raised as I get less and less surprised by your typical garden-variety rock, but this sounds like a band hitting their stride and bashing out a great record.

    Armchair Apocrypha is a wonderful record.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    For the better part of an hour, the trio's experimental pop melodies create their own breeze that, in a very Zen-like manner, becomes one with the surroundings of the listener.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    And desperate single aside, it all works pretty damn well.

    I can count three sure hits on this club-crossover coup if radio plays it right.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Along with Sounds of Silver, Myths of the Near Future is thus far the best dance (rock) album of 2007 that you can rock (dance)-out to.
