    Mostly, though, the music on Sistrionix is plain bad.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It is violently un-confrontational, startlingly uninventive and no fun whatsoever.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    The Brazilians’ fourth is a tuneless, tiresome rabble of a record that does just that [make you feel glum].
    • 63 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Effectively, it is emo for Blacksmiths. This would all be semi-tolerable, were it not for the sickeningly overwrought poetry bobbing on top.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Borrell 1 is a disaster that could obliterate any appeal Razorlight once had.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    You'll only get a kick out of this record if you think all music made since 1976 is terrible and have absolutely no desire to hear anything new whatsoever.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Most of the tracks are about as blank and sterile as an airport terminal.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    Listening to Babyshambles’ horrible third album is like being stuck on a roundabout with no exits.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    Altogether, it's an insipid assault of dribbly, sub-Billie Piper pop sludge.
