    This is a major step forward in pushing the IDM aesthetic into the bigger territory of soul and R&B music.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    They accomplish what most rock bands only dream of: the subtle transcendence of genre, form, and the music itself.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    No Flashlight is the most sincere album I've heard in so long that it fills me with a joy that couldn't possibly only come through the music.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is nothing short of a monumental piece of work.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is a great record, if it is a record.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Like all works of elusive beauty, Lookaftering is something that is so immediate and accessible it will take time to realize just how enriched with subtle evocation it is.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The Fiery Furnaces have delivered another great American novel via guitars, drums, bells, and whistles.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Soft Money continues to blur the line between downtempo electronica and underground hip-hop in its own distinct, highly gratifying way.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    So come now fans of insidious and wily (yet cerebral) rock, Liars have delivered just what you need... even if you don't realize it yet.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Son
    Son should stand as one of the most beautiful and inspiring albums of 2006.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A perfect album.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Return To Cookie Mountain is one for the ages.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Perversion packed with allusions -- forgotten titles, purloined and paraphrased sources, pilfered public records and archives. This is what steeps the songs in American history instead of planting them in psycho wards, clinics, and retirement homes.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Good luck finding a better straight-up indie-pop/indie-rock record this year (save TV On The Radio) that's as uninhibited, unique, and flawlessly all-over-the-place as I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The band's most ambitious, mind-blowing, and best record yet.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    I can confidently say that this is some of the most astonishingly beautiful music being made today.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It seems as though the quick release of Untrue restricted Burial from burying his emotions underneath layers of alternatively sparse and overwhelming production as he did on his debut, resulting in an album that instead wears them unabashedly on its sleeve.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It may end angrily, but when it’s all said and done, Microcastle is a blissful retreat from the known.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    If you let it work its magic, it will--no matter how unfashionable or cloying it may seem at a glance. It’s music to get absorbed by.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    No one is reinventing the wheel here; humility rules, and what makes Gala Mill so impressive is how The Drones wear their emotions on their sleeves and how naturally everything spills out.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is the sound you need to get for right now, and it’s built to last well past that.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Frequently labeled as a lecherous rogue or public provocateur, Gainsbourg is also one of the most important artists of the 20th century, and this masterpiece is the proof.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The songs here represent more than just a band; they represent the myth, the sound of “beautiful losers,” as Buck describes them, making good on the promise their sound always presented.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Destroyer's new album Kaputt may be one of the most indefensible albums of all time. But it's also a masterpiece.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The highlights here are subtle, but many.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Pitiless Censors is a sparkling album, a lo-fi synth pop masterpiece that manages to give endless aural delights while still being intellectually engaging, and despite having been caught at the center of a whirlpool of current movements, all of which reflect some aspect of Maus' style, he has only cemented his identity as a singular, unimpeachable figure.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's unlike anything else in Lopatin's discography, not just a bold step sideways, but something like an epistemological break from an artist whose work increasingly bears the weight of something like hegemony.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    In bringing to light these stillborn-again pleasures, The Caretaker reveals himself to be nothing less than formidably eponymous.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Traceable by touch, cogent in dreams, the fibers of its text bear the weight of a psychedelic meisterwerk.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Truly, Sweet Heart, Sweet Light is one of those gorgeous things and, if nothing else, the most profound late statement Spaceman has given us in a decade.
