    • 80 Critic Score
    While the bold brush strokes of Personality may alienate some hardened purists, it may just turn out to be the defining release of Scuba's career.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's rare an album creates a world so weird yet so coherent and absorbingly musical, but DVA has done it here; the only reasonable response is to take a deep breath and dive in.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The results are atmospheric, rough around the edges but captivating, unique and extraordinary.

    Black Is Beautiful is nigh-on indescribable--in a very good way.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    He's gone several steps further away from standard dance structure and into abstraction and ambience here – and it's all the better for it.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Dive in and experience Slugabed's amazing imagination for yourself.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's the smart weaves in and out of expectation--the jolts, the swerves--that make it an instant classic.
    • 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.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This deft new album [is] a delight.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Smoky, slow- paced, disco soul with Bee Gees-style falsetto harmonising, it's the type of grown-up pop Scissor Sisters can pull off like few others.

    • 80 Critic Score
    Fixers--a new five-piece experimental pop act from Oxford--have what it takes to enter the fray.
    • 79 Metascore

    Prepare to get emotional and elevated in equal measures.
    • 75 Metascore

    What you get here is more of the same star-crossed rave-pop.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's kind of unexpected, but Brackles has created a sunny storm.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    [An] ambitious, oddball, lush, relentlessly sexy electro-funk and twisted disco record.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Sometimes brilliant, often infuriating, it's a must-check nonetheless.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Slightly dark and just a little experimental, this is quality, innovative, of-the-moment dance music.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The result is skull-crushing, claustrophobic and wonderful.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This is street-tough tech-house, happy to wear its hip hop, jazz, disco and Latin influences on its sleeve.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It arguably only packs one real standout track, but Cellar Door is still a refined and fluid long-player.
    • 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.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi's second coming finds the youngsters exploring a more symphonic sound.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
