    • 70 Critic Score
    On the whole his decision to try something different is a commendable and promising move and you get the feeling that it’s a direction he could continue to explore with success should he choose.

    Closing track The Dogs (featuring Moby himself on vocals) does stretch things out somewhat, it doesn’t spoil the notion that Innocents, while maybe not the creative renaissaince hinted at, is Moby’s best album for some time.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Overall, this is an album full of promise, poise and brio.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Reflektor is not the vintage record the hype would have us believe. But it will, if nothing else, get your feet moving.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Flynn remains one of the country’s most overlooked songwriters and Country Mile is a good reminder of his skill with a well-crafted song.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While the length is an issue, when Quasi do get it right, the results are up there with some of the best work they have produced over the last two decades.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    New
    In general, you want McCartney, the least experimental Beatle (yes, including Ringo), to stick to what he does best. And on New, he mostly obliges, making it one of his better recent efforts.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ultimately, We Were Here is another strong return from Turin Brakes, one that doesn’t stray far from their acoustic niceties, but one that also seeks out a natural progression.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s by no means perfect and it does feel slightly one-paced, but the layers of Heritage are undoubtedly worth unravelling.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It adds up to one of his most vital offerings since those heady days of old.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The music covers a diverse range of styles, with the solo offering more of a melodic folk-rock affair.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The main discernible difference immediately noticeable is the increased tempo and prominent, thundering rhythm section alongside racing guitars.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Static isn’t a perfect album, but it contains enough promising signs of evolution to predict a long career for Cults.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While unlikely to change anyone’s life, The Head And The Heart have produced a record that’s richly enjoyable and well performed throughout, establishing themselves as a worthy addition to their home town’s roll of honour.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Quarters is such an inventive, smartly composed album that complaining about its lack of emotional clout feels like nitpicking rather than the exposure of a serious flaw.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    At the end of this quite exhausting album, it is hard to ascertain whether anything has been resolved. However, if this is what Krug needs to move on, then Julia With Blue Jeans On is a testament to the healing power of creativity.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There are still creases to iron out, but Antiphon marks a significant step as Midlake move on to the next phase of their career.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Ozanne has stayed true to his roots and is peddling a gloriously emotional torrent of untamed electronica, soul-pop and darkwave. It’s both uplifting and tormented, both grandiose and intimate.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Peace On Venus is arguably the band’s finest (half-)hour since Dilate.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Salute is an undeniably solid album, and has a lot more going for it than similar efforts from many of Little Mix’s pop peers this year.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Pretty, simple songs which nevertheless were absolutely littered with hooks.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Her ability to micromanage is clearly great. It’s not the most unique take on folk, but it is rife with charm; her intimate, sympathetic sounds soothe the most restless minds.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A better way to appreciate the record isn’t in one beefy sitting, but rather in bitesize portions. Devour it slowly and you’ll be able to savour its flavour.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Each presents a very traditional, very organically energetic arrangement of a folk standard performed by undeniably contemporary musicians--emphasizing just how current many of these songs have come to sound.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    II
    K-X-P II is much more than an experiment in tinkering with vintage instruments and influences. The balance of a big, yet primitive sound is ripe for filtering south beyond the confines of the world’s second most northern capital.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While Peace does not quite finish on the bang that would have really rounded off a great record, there is no doubt that it reflects the band at their most natural.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    All in all, Dirty Gold is a solid first major-label album, one that is graced with several moments of brilliance.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    What could just be another run through a well-worn genre becomes an album that is worth a place in any serious library.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Rateliff works best exploiting the depth and range of his voice against a spacious backdrop that doesn’t have to be downtempo to be dull.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The temptation to skip back to the start will probably creep in after a few plays, but stick with it and further, less immediate treasures will be revealed.
