    • 33 Critic Score
    The eleven tracks on the album, while almost uniformly unpleasant, all share an underlying moroseness sewn together by Bianca Casady’s unnerving vocals.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    Largely embarrassing, Bangerz is the most fun when it’s so ridiculous that criticism seems futile.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    Almost nothing about it works.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    A couple of pseudo-anthems will likely nurse them through a handful of unearned headline gigs--but in all honesty, the world has no need for pop music this faceless, listless or sterile.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    Education only teaches us that the band was at it’s best when they were merely predicting a riot instead of trying to lead one.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    The New Classic, though stacked from top to bottom with an impressive collection of production efforts, is nothing more than derivative delivery soaked in stylistic heresy.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 33 Critic Score
    Trainor recycles the themes from every forgettable Billboard alumnus from the past decade, with a bit more color here and there, but not enough to distinguish herself from the pack.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The music isn’t as good as it was, sure, but what’s truly maddening is his apparent indifference to his own decline.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The generalized lyrics shrouded in reverb protect Richie by rendering anything he sings as essentially useless.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    Ultimately, the highlights here are still middling fare, and mostly, I just couldn’t wait for Recess to be over.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 16 Critic Score
    The real embarrassment is that more than the work of his peers or his idols, mostly Pharrell’s just ripping off himself to seriously diminished returns.
    • 66 Metascore

    Though the revamps are distractingly overwrought (this project could have been called The 20/20 Xperience), Jackson’s voice, pure and fierce as ever, cuts straight through Timbaland and company’s more-is-more fireworks display.
