    This is the sort of LP you play from start to finish while on a car journey in the sun on the way to a festival: it’ll gift you with positive feelings through its infinite groove.

    Springsteen cover ‘The Last To Die’, is a witty aside, but throbbing 4/4 dominates as the electronic legends make a welcome return to their roots.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s as beguiling and bewitching as you’d expect.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    For all its varied elements is all too clearly the expression of the demented but coherent vision of one man. You will find no better way to fry your mind this year.

    Their second album has a cosmic disco groove ('The Following'), thought-out harmonies ('The Unknown Faces at Father James Park') and electro- pop moments ('The Right One'), creating the kind of warm glow you may get from a house party in a log cabin.

    A haunting memorial.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Where ‘Coastal Grooves’ felt like an indie kid playing at being an r’n’b superstar, here the metamorphosis seems complete.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The guest list on Amygdala proves his pull, boasting marquee names to help Koze construct a dense, intense and highly individual album of nuanced house.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is music from a mind with a digitized imagination.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s a place where house music melts into a joyous, shimmering gloop.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s an accomplished record.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Thanks to the string 'n' bass-fuelled opener 'Hood Wink', the Lykke Li-ish 'Don't Go' and the super-slow marriage of synths 'n' rave on the title track, these '...Gardens' continually bear fruit.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It’s another LP from the Londoner exploring sense, sexuality and seduction, picking up where her 2012 debut ‘Playin’ Me’ left off.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Glow is an epic achievement, an album that bolsters its disco-flecked gems with 80s funk, Euro synth-pop and chunky 90s house tropes.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It finds the Welshman departing even further from his garage roots in favour of a more visceral warehouse sound.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What you get here is more of the same star-crossed rave-pop.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi's second coming finds the youngsters exploring a more symphonic sound.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It arguably only packs one real standout track, but Cellar Door is still a refined and fluid long-player.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Laced with menace and atomically sonic, this second coming is nothing short of a masterclass in dark craft.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This album is something that any open-minded Mixmag reader could appreciate.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While 2010’s Compass--produced by Beck, and festooned with stellar guests--was about electronic folk and scuzzy pop, this new record’s got the funk.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Absolutely sterling work, very possibly the most consistent album yet from the duo, and not a star guest in sight.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    On the whole, Sleep Of Reason is a stirring and cerebral venture into avant-soul.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Arc
    Everything Everything hit their targets with aplomb.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An album that is as melancholic as is it banging.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Black Is Beautiful is nigh-on indescribable--in a very good way.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    OK, it can be a bit tiring at times, but if you’re feeling open minded enough, this is a fluid, super-charged masterpiece.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Slow Focus is a grisly journey into the unknown, but an exhilarating one--if you’re willing to take it.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's kind of unexpected, but Brackles has created a sunny storm.
