    The fact that he can produce an album like Bad As Me, with more energy, invention and sheer excitement that artists half his age stands as testimony that Tom Waits remains one of the true giants of music.

    As its title suggests, Accelerando provides plenty of speed and also a very real adrenaline rush.

    Deep Science should enhance TVOTR's reputation as one of the finest, forward-thinking bands around, along with fellow Brooklyn acts Animal Collective and Liars.

    • 70 Critic Score
    It all means that Sometimes I Sit… is a likeable, enjoyable album rather than a great one. Barnett has written half a masterpiece: let’s hope that, next time round, she can complete the job.

    While far from immaculate, Cookie Mountain is the logical progression from Desperate Youth, with its conception fruit enough for those who appreciate musical innovation.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    By turns danceable, blissed out romantic, familiar and new, it's technologically and musically fascinating. Its juxtaposition of orga and mecha is one of its many well executed contradictions. Packed but sparse, thrilling, complex, innovative, simple. Without even a dud bar never mind a filler track, In Rainbows is more than any fan could hope for.

    An album of the year contender.
    • 88 Metascore

    No Selfish Heart is something to cherish all year round, no matter what’s in or out of fashion musically; something to keep coming back to when you’re unimpressed by everything else.

    Foundations showcases the development in the band’s songwriting skills.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Black Tambourine have finally gotten the treatment they deserve. This is essential listening for anyone who wonders where indie-rock's been, or where it's going. The influence is obvious, and the music has never sounded better.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    There is something new and exciting in Ellison’s bewildering synthesis, and something very original in his seemingly unlimited horizons.
    • 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.
    • 87 Metascore

    A stunning debut then, and one that will make Fleet Foxes one of the most sought after bands of the year.
    • 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.

    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.

    Ten Love Songs is an enormously creative, endlessly surprising album.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s not the easiest of pop albums to listen to but its raw power makes it a dazzling triumph.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    All involved have created one of the most unusual and surprisingly moving records I have heard in some time.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It is also one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful albums that I have heard since its predecessor.

    Vulnicura feels, overall, as if it is one of Björk’s most successful albums, one where she mostly finds sonic strategies that are well matched with her concepts and themes.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It’s the sort of album that even repeated listenings can throw up a myriad of surprises: you never really get to know who the character of Father John Misty is (is he a self-hating misogynist, is he a sage or is he just a simple romantic?), but it’s clear that Josh Tillman has slowly turned into one of the most talented songwriters of our age.

    While the album is unmistakably Hecker’s vision, it’s the listener’s experience.

    For a debut album it's brilliantly realised and contains not an inch of flab across its 11 songs. Debut album of the year? It's beyond doubt.

    Dig deeper and you'll find that Goat has managed to create not just a world of their own, but an album that draws on influences from all over the world.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    On paper these might sound like mad genius, but Daft Punk somehow misplace the wit and the light touch that’s pretty much their trademark. Instead, these long epics become somewhat tedious and there is a strong whiff of egoism and self-indulgence.

    You could make a fair case for it not even being as good as Funeral – but my oh my, it's close.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Overall, Touché Amoré’s shift to the emotional and the subtle at times, without sacrificing the exhilarating annihilation that characterizes their music, renders Is Survived By dynamic and of higher quality than anything they’ve done before.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It is a remarkably enduring and giving album that further enriches this already flourishing genre.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    One of the 21st century's most intelligent and satisfying bands (musically, lyrically, emotionally) have once again set out their stall, and once again produced a work of inspired resonance, capturing truth after truth, in all its muddled, human realism.

    Bob Ludwig's remastering punches up the drums and adds clarity and volume to the mix without overblowing it or excessively altering the overall sound, and the result is that these two albums sound incredibly modern, relevant, and invigourated... The Gish standouts include a demo of Daydream with Corgan on vocals in place of D'arcy Wretzky and an extended version of Drown with blistering alternate guitar solos.
