    • 90 Critic Score
    The spontaneous sounding arrangements--topped by Watson's uniquely mercurial voice--are at turns ornate, grand and subtle, but never less than totally bewitching.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Tribes have roared back fiercer than ever.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Complete and utter filth from start to finish, and that's as high a compliment as we can bestow on an album.
    • 60 Metascore
