    The year has only just begun, but if there is one metal album to purchase in 2011 so far, this is it.
    • 82 Metascore

    Malkmus remains up to his usual trickery, packing the proceedings with musical plot twists like false starts, abrupt fades, and fake codas. [#4, p.106]

    Stankonia lays bare the group's desire to be something greater than just rap stars. No two tracks sound alike, and they've taken time in the woodshed to pen rhymes that are even more dexterous and honest than their past work--no mean feat. [#3, p.107]

    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Backed by a bevy of sublime, aggravated tracks, G.O.A.T. is L.L.'s most aggressive, rhyme-centric effort since Radio. [#2, p.112]

    Musically, AOI melds the compufunk of 'Stakes' with the soulystics of the trio's earlier work, adding in a healthy supply of guitar twang to boot. [#2, p.109]

    Sometimes it sounds like someone grafted the Who's Live at Leeds and the first Minor Threat EP together. Yes, it's that good. [#2, p.103]

    As sonically beautiful an album as R.E.M. has made. [May/June 2001, p.114]

    Although it's been a full decade since their last release, United by Fate, Rival Schools don't miss a beat on this reunion disc. [Mar/Apr 2011, p. 88]

    August Burns Red have set their own bar even higher on Leveler, and have done so for all of their scene in the process. The album is certainly among the most memorable releases so far this year.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Unto the Locust isn't just a great album, it's an important statement that metal doesn't have to fall into trite categories or draw from pre-existing formulas to be accessible.

    Royal Thunder display a soulful sonic acumen that's as dynamic as it is compelling.
    • 72 Metascore

    All in all, the record perfectly captures the band live–which, as anyone who saw them on this summer’s Mayhem Fest knows, is an experience in itself.
