    Lambert promises on the album's stellar title track, and if that isn't a warning to all of Nashville, from a woman who has compiled one of the year's finest releases, it should be.

    There's something captivating about the project, and you will find yourself returning to the album over and over again.

    Is Is will especially appeal to fans who found "Show Your Bones" a little soft. On the other hand, this release should appeal to any and all Yeah Yeah Yeahs aficionados.

    The Dr. of Mathematics has one-upped it with Andorra, keeping all of the earlier album's core sonic qualities while adding layers of heartfelt atmospherics to craft what is not only one of the most mesmerizing and unique albums of the year, but also one of the best.

    I Created Disco is not only the title of Harris' full-length debut, it's also the title of a track on the album that threatens to depose Justice from their perch on high.

    Listening to The Weakerthans makes me feel young and happy and hopeful.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Few bands have managed to blend so many divergent sounds and styles together to make such an interesting, great-sounding, and cohesive [key word] record as Evangelicals have with The Evening Descends.

    Encapsulating everything that has come to pass since their debut with "Organix" in 1993, Rising Down is the best The Roots release to date, bar none.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Far removed from the desolation I feel surrounded by, Land of Talk's first full-length album's sense of hope, grounded in realism, is at once reassuring and encouraging.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The whole of the album is stunning and unique, and if the thematic gender-bending core of the album makes a few people ideologically shy away, then it's truly a shame.
    • 79 Metascore

    It's fun and light, and even though for all I know he could be singing about the destruction of mankind, it is bursting with joy and happiness.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The '59 Sound delivers just about everything you could hope for in a well-written rock album.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is the kind of record you'll spend days rocking out to. You'll get lost walking around listening to it (I know I did), think about quitting your job to relive the days when a record like this was all that was allowed to matter.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    In this case I've been compelled to return a lot. Weird accomplishment for a pop singer. It's a five-or-six-listens album.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Every song is steeped in melancholy, but the underlying beauty that ties it all together is in the courage of Ashworth's characters to face the unforgiving reality they occupy.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's Frightening kicks into high gear from the get-go, and never looks back.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The Eternal is absorbing and raw, from the slower, affable 'Antenna' to the pounding 'Poison Arrow.'
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This new bag of tricks is implemented with due subtlety that bolsters the charming simplicity qualities, while filling the tracks out and, cautiously, adding some curves.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Thomas' craft is tremendous for a newcomer, especially in an indie-rock moment that needs it.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's strange second-hand pop, deconstructed and represented as something entirely new, augmented by a range of melodies and affectations. Good for him and good for the world for the opportunity to be exposed to his music-pop music in its purest form, pop informed by pop.
    • 86 Metascore

    Only Deerhunter makes echoes without egos, grounding even Bradford Cox's most wayward divergences in an all-encompassing blend of simple rock stylings.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Places Like This is right up there with the year's best madcap adventures into dance and rock.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Challengers stacks up against the pillar of "Twin Cinema" just fine; it is the more restrained of the two, equally as satisfying, and more stylistically varied.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Whether blazing a tight new trail or feeling its way in the darkness, each tune on the album heads somewhere, collectively making as much of a stylistic progression as the recording of "Our Endless Numbered Days" made in fidelity and depth.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    The music is what makes Lupe's pretensions palatable.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    It's a shame if Dark Night of the Soul ends up relegated to a cult souvenir; it's truly exceptional as music.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Although the loud tracks are the most immediate, the subtleties of later numbers like "Reptiles" prove nearly as rewarding,; don't even think of stopping play before "Gunman" shows what these pros do with a dance number.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Song by song, all of it melts into your head, relentless, narcotic and detached, yet ultimately positive.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    If Of Montreal were previously a bit on the superficial side with their beatific pop, Hissing Fauna adds a welcome additional ingredient: a sense of gravity.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Release The Stars swoons and sweeps until the final curtain and Rufus Wainwright has delivered music perfectly suited for the elaborate set of the world around us.
