    To say Lookaftering takes up where Just Another Diamond Day left off is an understatement. It feels like no time has elapsed at all since 1970, neither in her own life nor the outside world.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Like all ambitious double albums, [Aerial] is not without its flaws, but even Bush's moments of failure are much more interesting than those of her contemporaries.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    That they can create such a heavy sound with just two people is nothing short of genius.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The real glory of this record resides in the way in which Lekman blends his bottled sunshine melodies with droll and romantic word play.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    You know it's special from the first bars.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A collection that contains no weak links, no fillers, no afterthoughts and almost no mistakes.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's not a totally perfect record, for which we should be thankful - remember what happened to The Stone Roses after they'd released their flawless debut? - but it is an excellent first album, and gives notice that Alex Turner is already one of this country's best lyricists.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Absolutely essential listening.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    They have formed the most remarkable of pairings, crafting an album of such beauty that past reference is made redundant.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It possesses that raw energy that was present in two other exciting debuts, Is This It? by The Strokes and Definitely Maybe by Oasis.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Darker than its predecessors, the harrowing Meds is as close Placebo have come to that perfect album.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is a fantastic, passionate and wonderfully eccentric debut album that's also a thrilling advert of what's to come.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Bleak and broody music has never been quite so thrilling.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's plenty of pop tunes here, but there's also enough self expression and leftfield rambling to make this an album of real interest.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A monstrously grandiose, ridiculously gargantuan and stunningly inventive work from start to end.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    After a while shapes form and the structure of this masterpiece become clear - a wash of beautiful melodies and sumptuous chord changes that sit somewhere between George Harrison and Echo and the Bunnymen.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One moment I feel like I am listening to Underworld's frantic blast combined with the Blue Nile's slowly evolving elegance, the next it could be The Pet Shop Boys' sailing in the slip stream of Depeche Mode. I can't nail down the sound beyond the fact that it's breathtaking.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's going to be a coronation very soon, and anyone who cares to invest will be handsomely rewarded by the future king.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    How good is A Weekend In The City? At times, it's brilliant: bold, forthright and honest.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Much like their debut, it'll take a few listens to be pulled towards Myth Takes by the force operates at its core.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    You could make a fair case for it not even being as good as Funeral – but my oh my, it's close.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Pop Levi is an oddball, an eccentric in the finest English tradition and a man who evokes the effortless, timeless cool of many and varied heroes of modern music's life and times.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This being Cave, classy lyrical dexterity is never far away. But here the fire and brimstone preacher is a little less po-faced than much of his back catalogue, allowing humour (still black as coal) to gain the upper hand.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    What is most startling... is the amount of emotional depth that Turner's injected into his songs here.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is something we've been waiting a long time for - a truly great Manics album.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's eccentric, it's exhilarating, it is, in parts, absolutely insane. Yet it's never less than absolutely compelling, which is what makes The White Stripes one of the greatest bands of modern times.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There's absolutely nothing indecisive (or indeed shit) about this album. It's swaggering, full-throttle, full-throated genius.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Here she is doing what she does best--weaving the sounds and statements of the people she's writing about into the song itself.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Constantly brilliant. White Chalk is an amazing album, racked with beauty, stricken with fragility and haunted with something otherworldly.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    For a 21st century rock band, there isn't a single moment here that threatens to turn into an 'anthem' to be balled out at the Nestle-Monsanto Rock Festival at a mud-pit near you next summer.
