    WU LYF are a band to celebrate, a DIY tour de force, and their first album deserves a place of reverence in the modern indie-rock canon.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    So minimal and calm is much of The Harrow & The Harves that Six Horses comes as something of a shock. It displays the same studied but honest approach to American folk music that characterises the whole album but adds harmonica and, yes, handclaps!
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    With Young Man In America, Anaïs Mitchell has created her second consecutive masterpiece.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This compilation may primarily be valuable for illustrating the full length and breadth of Sylvian's musical progression.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Allo Darlin' have achieved their aim of not producing a carefree record again, and then some--instead, they've created one of considerable, admirable depth and nous, though it retains the warm, personal nature of its predecessor.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is Public Image Ltd at its best. This record is good. Outrageously good. Better than a record of an artist of Lydon's vintage has any right to make.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's a brilliant exploration of the inevitable interaction between sound, the passing of time and the active process of listening.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    With mystique to spare, it's a record to cherish.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Beams is an uncompromising, forceful and darkly beautiful album from a formidable musical talent.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Until The Quiet Comes is at once iridescent and ambiguous, luminous and impenetrable: an elegantly conceived and executed album which may well come to be seen as Flying Lotus' finest work to date.
    • 99 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    In this globalised but fragmented world, now so obsessed with immediacy, rapidity and digestibility, Ten Freedom Summers is a visionary work of protest and power.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    With the third in his Essex trilogy Darren Hayman has surpassed himself, creating an album that is intelligent, heartfelt, and musically stunning.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s all intelligently arranged, but also in thrall to the energy and swing of jazz tradition--there is plenty of rhythm and blues during the improvising.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The release of The Next Day would have been one of the biggest stories of the year no matter what its quality--the fact that it also happens to be one of the best records of Bowie’s career to date just makes the comeback that much more triumphant.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s a towering achievement, building on what has come before while expanding it in astonishing ways. This is undoubtedly one of the best albums of the year.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Heavy it most certainly is, but Daughter succeed simply by creating phenomenally beautiful music and heart-rending songs.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is an intelligent and deeply human album and it would be no exaggeration to say that it’s already a modern classic.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Electric finds Pet Shop Boys more daring and accomplished than most pop stars half their age.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s an album that manages to remain accessible while still sounding challenging and unconventional, an album that can sound heart-stoppingly beautiful one minute and scratchily acerbic the next and, ultimately, an album that’s impossible to grow bored of.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It’s rare that you get an album by an established artist that genuinely shocks and irrevocably repositions them. Blank Project is one of those albums. This is a hugely significant return.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    To those of you out there who crave immediate, wistful pop music that will make you smile about the future and make you cry about the past, you won’t find a better album this decade.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is undoubtedly Liars’ most engaging work, and certainly the best Mute album since, well, WIXIW.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Gallon Drunk are now eight albums in to their storied career, and their strain of narcotic rock is getting more and more potent with age.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Luminous, all told, is a sure-fire summer soundtrack from a band who are far more cerebral than they’d have you believe.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Here, Gira shows that the Swans resurgence isn’t a fluke. Not even close.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    There isn’t a weak track on show. It makes Plowing Into The Field Of Love a truly impressive piece of work.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Somehow, from nothing, they’ve pulled off a surprising but oh so welcome return, and this record plays like a triumphant middle finger salute, coolly showing everyone how its done... and writing the first line on a thousand ‘album of the year’ lists before January’s even out.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Ten Love Songs is an enormously creative, endlessly surprising album.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Entanglement is an album that needs to be considered alongside genre heavyweights like The Blue Notebooks by Max Richter or Englabörn by Jóhann Jóhannsson. It’s a timely reminder of how high modern classical music can reach.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The album is so intricate, rich and multilayered that it’s difficult to do justice to its overall sound.
