    So much of Illinois feels magical, however, in much the same way as a large State Fair: there is commotion and wonder as the population is continually enchanted by progress, but to unknown purpose.

    It’s apparent that this album was made with particular care, as most of John Vanderslice’s works are, but there are many cases where a more mature display of music appreciation is taken; previously, when met with such dogged emotional complexity, Vandersilce would rely on experimentation. Here, he stares straight on.

    As well as being their most accessible, The Campfire Headphase emerges as the most solid Boards of Canada album to date.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Triumphant, bitter, despondent, but never false or insincere, The Last Romance is one of the early great listens of 2006.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Destroyer’s Rubies is every bit as marvelous as his landmark Streethawk: A Seduction.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is proof that Campbell made the right decision in leaving Belle And Sebastian.

    Archer and friends deserve praise for making an album so rooted in its locale so appealing to a wider audience due to the never-ending amount of catchy hooks and melodies on display on Stars Of CCTV.

    • 90 Critic Score
    This will most likely be the best hip-hop album of the year as well as a contender for best overall album of the year.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Drowaton is as close to an orchestral pop masterpiece as you’re going to get.

    A dazzling collection of songs, Putting The Days To Bed cements Roderick's reputation as one of the best songwriters working today.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Operatic in scope, ruthlessly ambitious in its range, The Paper Chase have dropped one the most unique and substantive records of the year.

    This really is pretty music.
    • 85 Metascore

    Ys
    Listening to Ys is like dreaming with eyes open, a detached lucidity in which clarity inevitably follows.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    With its mind-blowing dynamics and wounded memories, bandaged up in affecting, mature lyrics that dissect relationships with a therapist's perspective, the wisdom of hindsight and an artist's touch, Let's Build A Fire is almost flawless.

    While they are not afraid to bang the drums and rock out, Menomena keep the majority of this album behind a beautiful mask of complimentary melodies.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Cleaned up, stripped down, and melding dance music seamlessly with post-punk, Sound Of Silver is as solid as a dance album can get.

    Woke On A Whaleheart is a pleasure, and aside from the intro to the song "Footprints," every moment on this record is immensely listenable.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    I'm prepared to defend this as hip hop's frontrunner for best album of 2007 thus far.

    One of the most exciting and substantial records so far this year.

    If the Flaming Lips mated with Marilyn Manson and ate Underworld for breakfast, the end result might sound something like Battles' debut album, Mirrored.
