    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It is also one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful albums that I have heard since its predecessor.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It makes for a wonderfully life affirming record, capable of humour, joy and reflection. Every home should have one.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Frank is a superb debut album that announces Amy Winehouse as a major young talent. With hardly any weak tracks on here, it's frightening to think what she could produce in the years to come.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Untrue is complex, stark, tender, blurred and breathtaking. Burial has managed the impossible and improved on his faultless debut.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's rare to be so gushing about a debut album--yet after living with this album for a few weeks, you'll be hard pressed to find any flaws.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's the big numbers, when Hegarty steps up to the microphone, that reveal Hercules And Love Affair as a project that captures not only the full range of moods on a night out on the tiles, but also the full range of human emotions from the start of a night to its end.
    • 60 Metascore

    Red
    There's not one duff moment during the album's 50 minutes - it's pop music to be treasured, loved and listened to for years to come.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Lookout Sea paradoxically Silver Jews' most complex and most accessible work to date. Better yet, it improves with each listen, as more and more nuances and links are revealed.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A stunning debut then, and one that will make Fleet Foxes one of the most sought after bands of the year.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Evil Urges represents the creative peak of a band that has shown glimpses of greatness in the past and will hopefully continue to evolve in the future.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Their seeming insanity only adds to the magic.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Gloriously free of filler, it would be an easy and enjoyable task to eulogise every track on Changing Of The Seasons but it seems a little brash to over-stamp opinion on such an individual and immersive listen.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The 16 tracks here aren't just duplicate recordings--with sudden new depth we are able to complete an emotive, triumphant musical triptych.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This mature, nuanced performance of Berlin communicates the human tragedy of the story, leaving behind the chilliness of the studio and using the medium of the stage to its full dramatic advantage.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Yet, at its simplest and most sedate, Bookish's new work is utterly beautiful.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    OST
    This is about as close to perfection as a soundtrack can ever hope to get - perfectly capturing the emotional grit of Danny Boyle's onscreen drama, while successfully evoking a very Indian atmosphere for a very Western audience.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A statement for all of the limp new rave pretenders to pack up and fuck off, a return to form rarely sounded or felt so exciting.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Middle Cyclone is the sound of one of the most interesting, independent, and consistently brilliant artists recording today at the top of their game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Ultimately, The Eternal acts as a fitting and timeless aide-memoire of everything this mighty band has ever achieved.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    With the original foursome reunited it's as well that Midlife dwells mainly on the music they made together. As a playlist of what Blur were and capable of, it suggests a band with few peers.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    With not a dot ball or an overthrow, The Duckworth Lewis Method is an unqualified success.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Origin: Orphan is even more extraordinary; a howling, mechanistic piece of post-rock in the vein of Godspeed You Black Emperor!
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Walking a fine line between being leftfield and hook-laden, Jaga Jazzist have delivered another selection of epic, psychedelic sojourns through electronics, brass and beats that consistently engage and excite.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It might take a week, a month, or even a year for it to yield up all its treasures; but after only a week in its company, this reviewer's instincts tell him that Have One On Me is a masterpiece.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Its real strength lies in the fact that it implores you to return for repeated visits to a world riddled with other people's cast-offs. Ironically, it recycles nothing; everything here is box fresh.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The Promise is what got left behind, and the quality of these 21 songs serves to remind the listener how brilliant Darkness On The Edge Of Town really was, and how discerning its craftsmen must have been to leave so much in the dust.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A genre defining release and a welcome return to boundary surfing music.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The use of the church organ is a particular masterstroke and it imbues Hecker's compositions here not with grandiosity, but with a sort of faded grandeur that chimes brilliantly with his familiar themes. It also offers a superb range of texture and sound, sometimes attacking and aggressive, at others soft and warm.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The final results are of such subtle beauty they take the breath clean away.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    In a year that's already been rather special for great albums, Merrill Garbus may well have produced the finest record of the year.
