    If only Embrace gave us more of the spacey, Mercury Rev-style psychedelia of "Near Life" (sans McNamara's poorly mumbled vocals), it'd be easier to forgive their lack of imagination.

    That Fasciinatiion isn't a revelatory departure is not to say that it is completely without merit. It is, however, undeniably lacking an air of excitement.

    It falls flat, offering little hope for the listener; after a few disappointing rounds of thinking that the next track simply HAS to be solid, the album exits as if it were never really there. Without a doubt, War Stories is the weakest and most disappointing UNKLE release to date.

    2009's Entertainment finds the duo reverting somewhat to their more flamboyant origins while still trying to stay current. It's a divergent approach that fortunately works more for the record than against it.

    Dusk and Summer’s over-the-topness is relentless – most any second-banana Blink 182-er would sell an expendable internal organ to use one of these songs as a set-closer.

    Despite its faults, Morning Tide will no doubt satisfy fans of crafty pop and have them dancing and singing.

    This haunting collection of songs is yet another gem in Jagjaguwar's growing canon.

    The Past Presents the Future strongly matches the high bar he has set with his past few albums.

    Timeless is a step up for will.i.am and a step down for Sergio Mendes, somewhere between decency and exceptionality.
    • 59 Metascore

    Well worth the wait.

    As gorgeous as Sleepy’s voice can be, lyrically the album is lacking.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    While Smith & Co. may overuse a keyboard riff or two on In This Light, we shouldn't really let that sully this dark, majestic detour.

    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.

    While Johansson's debut is not as pleasant as Zooey Deschanel's work with M.Ward, Anywhere I Lay My Head will surely surprise Johansson's doubters; having grown to appreciate Scarlett Johansson for being more than a pretty face and mediocre actor, I can speak from experience.

    Nothing on Curtis is great, but everything is listenable or better.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    Not surprisingly, the lyrics lack any real nuance or trenchant insight, but the fervor of Kravitz's vocal, coupled with hard-charging guitars and battering drums, gives the song a visceral power.

    Overall, the diversity of the production overcomes the same-ness of the verses to make Feedback worth a listen.

    Gone from Odditorium Or Warlords Of Mars are the long periods of monotony that turned Welcome To The Monkey House and The Dandy Warhols Come Down into sonic quicksand. Instead, when the Dandies come to forks in the road, their arrangements wander off into uncharted territory that’s worth exploring.

    There’ll be some splainin’ to do at the pearly gates.

    Dangerous Dreams is a passable album that never achieves greatness, nor does it fail miserably, rather residing with the mundane.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Even the songs that rise above the simple looped-beat formula don’t have much to offer.

    The result is like if "Sam's Town" worked, without a sign of embarrassing wordplay, conceptual grandeur, or annoying moustaches. The words are blessedly innocuous, leaving the grandiosity to the sound alone.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Some songs are worth a listen, but the overall package sounds and feels redundant and, putting myself at the mercy of =W= fans everywhere, renders itself irrelevant.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The overall sound is a bit too polished and loses some of the raw power edge that previous albums rode to critical success.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Although the vast majority of the record stays consistent, as on just about every Brian Jonestown Massacre record Newcombe always finds a way (or must resort to, depending on how you see it) to throw in a few buckets of filler.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 55 Critic Score
    Overly polished and far too artificial.
    • 48 Metascore

    Wanderlust is instantly forgettable.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Fun, emotional, experimental-ready and personally uplifting.
