    TOY
    Be it the sawing blasts of guitar that rushes you through the poignant Lose My Way, the spiralling vortex of Dead & Gone, upon which you helplessly bob along in or the careering momentum of Kopter, it's never anything other than intoxicating and brilliantly realised.

    • 90 Critic Score
    He's an outsider and the best thing about this marvellous compilation, however lush the sound and however catchy the melodies, is that it does absolutely nothing to change that.

    Sundfør's combination of careful, detailed arrangement and unrepentant magic realism is visionary and enriching.
    • 74 Metascore

    Greenwood has recorded an eerie yet stunning score, and if Anderson's production is just as aspiring then filmgoers are in for a real treat for the senses.

    An album of the year contender.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The echoes of previously heard themes, motifs make for a compelling examination of memory and experience as much as for an effective soundtrack.

    Arc
    There’s neither swag nor swagger here, just talent and a single-minded creative vision worth every gasping breath it takes to keep up with.

    • 90 Critic Score
    The extroverted, joyful melodies of Photon or the sustained brilliance of Spectral Split seem like brilliant recontextualisations of Weber’s artistic virtues.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Defying all expectations, they have taken a brave leap forward and delivered one of the first great albums of 2013.

    The legend behind m b v, as well as its songs, have created something many will talk about for much longer than it’s taken to arrive.

    • 90 Critic Score
    Exai shows they still occupy a special position in the current generation of forward-thinkers, producing music that couldn’t have been made at any other time other than now, unostentatiously trailblazing a path for others to follow in.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is an album that demands attention. An album that is experiential--at once lo-fi and richly textured--where the listener is a fly on the wall, mesmerised by minor-chord introspections that come in waves – some lap gently; others overwhelm.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s to their huge credit that they have made such an assured and immersive album on their own terms.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This record is fun, it’s exuberant, and it’s diverse--and yet nothing sounds unnatural or feels crowbarred in.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Impossible Truth is among the year’s most vivid and evocative albums so far, revealing new and absorbing details with every listen.
    • 65 Metascore

    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It might not be new any more, but it’s still formidably potent.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    While The Terror feels at first glance like an exercise in noise and disintegration, repeated listens reveal it to be a dark, challenging, and ultimately rewarding work of genius. It may be their best yet.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    All in, Overgrown is a triumph. It is evidence of James Blake forging his own singular musical path, free from hype and expectation, and blossoming into both a producer of real compositional skill and a songwriter of great depth.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    If you admire The Knife’s music for its incredible unpredictability and off-the-scale inventiveness, you are likely to consider this to be at least amongst their best work yet.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An album full of off-kilter, strange pop songs, the sort that Phoenix do so well. It may have been four years in the making, but it’s certainly been well worth waiting for.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The 11 songs collected here are all among the very best of his career, enlivened with a vividness and warmth that offers something new with every repeated listen.
