    Sacred Hearts Club is record of frustration on the listener’s part--we know they’re capable, but Foster the People have again failed to recapture the brand of youthfulness established in their hype-fuelled industry breakthrough. Equally, they fail to mature into an alternative sound with adequate craft to entice attention.

    The songs themselves don’t shine through the production.

    All Your Favorite Bands is plenty polished, but scratch the surface and there’s close to zero going on beneath it; it’s the kind of record that you’re in danger of forgetting before it’s even finished playing.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    The album is lacklustre, and suffers for a lack of purpose and intent.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Full Bleed reveals a complete lack of understanding of the dynamics of black metal. It doesn’t sound like a black metal record and never gets close to sounding like it.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Comebacks are often ego trips, but never quite as brazenly as this.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Blonde is a crushingly unoriginal piece of work, weirdly proud of its derivative nature, and anybody who wanted to listen to this kind of album could easily find a raft of better records in the last few years alone.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Seventy-five percent of the tracklisting consists of lovingly bastardised fan-favourite versions of demo tracks that have been online for up to eleven years.

    The Home Recordings largely serve as a further step back along the creative path, to a point where we either see songs at their most infantile stage or at a crossroads where Cobain, the tireless perfectionist, probably realised he could take them no further.
