    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Despite his always dead-on guitar playing and decent set of pipes, Setzer pens original material that tends toward repetition. Couple that with a rather pedestrian "Mack The Knife"... and "Vavoom!" comes across as listenable, but ultimately forgettable

    The new Tom Tom Club album is a lot like its title: a pop-culture reference whose impact fades upon inspection.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    The trio, whose sound could be loosely described as arena rock with a heavy nod to the Seattle flannel era, fail to entice the listener with the requisite hooks and melodies that define great songs.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Unfortunately, Harding misses more than he hits.... musically most of the tracks sound forced and untrue.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    She keeps shifting gears in an ill-advised attempt to please too broad an audience.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    Anyone hoping Etheridge has channeled her recent ups and downs into anything resembling vital rock and roll will be disappointed. Instead, she's sticking closer to the middle of the road than ever before.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    Like the group's previous records, "Turn 21" sticks to a formula based in familiarity—so familiar that one questions the value of this recording.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    Sadly, what should have been a spirited old-school revival feels more like half-baked nostalgia.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    The disappointing result is mostly a collection of thin-sounding electronic drum beats and trippy effects that, were it not for Farrell's vocal accompaniment, would be altogether forgettable.
