    With this collection, she proves that she was not just a shot in the dark or a blaze lighting up the sky for only a moment.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    The resulting effort is a largely uneven collection of songs that span everywhere from an actual Bruce Springsteen collaboration to subdued, orchestral ballads, from ‘70s-indebted heartland rock to ‘90s-inspired slow jams.

    Sling may not have the pop-centered style of Immunity, but it’s one that features Clairo’s impeccable ability to craft intimate, emotive songs. It’s a record that’s musically indebted to the past, but it’s done so in an adventurous, fascinating way.

    Vince Staples is introspective without being isolating, thoughtful without being boring, and innovative without being pretentious.
    • 84 Metascore

    It cements what she does best: giving trends of the past a clever and useful update. Our Extended Play comes from a place of sincerity, relying on familiar comforts without ever feeling out of date.

    • 75 Critic Score
    Planet Her maintains the versatility that Doja’s Hot Pink performances hinted at, but it all hinges on her knack for a singalong chorus, and fits cohesively in our ever-diversifying pop landscape. The result, while not terribly profound, is an album full of bulletproof bops, with the help of some well-chosen star collaborators.

    To Tyler’s credit, he didn’t rest on his laurels. Instead, he crafted a concise piece of work about a very confident adult realizing his own ego is both his best asset and indeed his worst enemy.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Death of a Cheerleader is a cohesive, emotionally affecting work. With this album, Mia Berrin solidifies her place among the newest class of indie stalwart songwriters, carving out this space in a fearless and vulnerable way.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It’s a tricky record that is perhaps more keen on being interesting than outright entertaining. Nonetheless, the experimentation on The Nightmare of Being is certainly worth celebrating.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Mammoth WVH is the sound of a young musician forging his own path and a very strong beginning to Wolfgang’s musical journey as a solo artist.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    It’s their best album since their debut, capturing an energy that was lacking on previous efforts. The songs here are simply more memorable and diverse, brimming with riffs and adventurous vocals.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It’s a slow and patient exploration of grief, layered with moments of surprising melodic beauty.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Born Against is a triumphant collection of tracks from one of modern music’s most gifted storytellers.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    Although Weezer’s shared love of (and debt) to the Sabbaths and Van Halens of the world is undeniable, their homages to those bands feel as scattershot as they are heartfelt.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Seek Shelter is a rich representation of Iceage’s bravery as a band.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Dropkick Murphys continue to do what they do best on Turn Up That Dial, churning out an album full of upbeat Celtic riffs and sing-along choruses.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Gojira have delivered a brisk, eminently listenable record that expands on their melodic sensibilities without abandoning their experimental tendencies, environmentalist policies, and emotional potency.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Every aspect is written and performed impeccably, with track sequencing that highlights both the variety of the material and the wisdom of its concepts. True to its intentions, then, The Million Masks of God is a gorgeously tuneful and thought-provoking gem.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    When you turn on a Dinosaur Jr. record, the thinking goes, it should always sound like a Dinosaur Jr. record. I’m happy to report that Sweep It into Space does, in fact, check this box.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Fearless (Taylor’s Version) states boldly, simply and perhaps, generously, that this is a story still worth telling – and a fight worth fighting.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    On their second studio effort, they step out of the shadow of their influences, carving a sound of their own. Where they go from here is anyone’s guess.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Violence Unimagined doesn’t precisely deliver a standout track, but it promises an exciting and surprisingly subtle turn in the band’s legacy of brutality.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 67 Critic Score
    If The Offspring want to stay in their comfort zone, there are plenty of fans who won’t object, but it won’t keep them relevant. On the plus side, Let the Bad Times Roll offers hints of creative tangents that could revitalize the band next time around – if they’re willing to challenge themselves.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Throughout ROADRUNNER…, their psychedelic-saturated groupthink frequently coheres into daring and undeniably moving work, smoothing over the rough spots and small stumbles.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    For the first time in a long time, the future feels uncertain and unformed. This is the music that will help us charge forward into the unknown.
    • 73 Metascore

    This album release coincides with the aforementioned documentary, and as the details of Lovato’s rocky recovery continue to unfurl, there’s a bit of concern in the idea that this record is a bit too intrinsically tied to another very public narrative. She tells us, over and over within the album, that this devastating chapter of her life is over and gone. In the aching, tender closer, she sings that she’s in a “good place” in a track of the same name. I desperately want to believe her.

    Another strong record worthy of their consistent discography. Longtime fans will find plenty to enjoy on Tonic Immobility. The supergroup’s musical personality remains intact.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    The Bitter Truth is reminiscent of the band’s older material but also entirely fresh. It does not feel like a band going through the motions.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    All in all, he has a pretty solid record of radio-ready hits, some that could double back as hazy, danceable club tracks. But MLK could have been left to rest in peace.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 83 Critic Score
    Chemtrails over the Country Club is a gorgeous listen: charming, clever, and vulnerable. Del Rey is as effective as ever in painting American fantasies, evoking nostalgia for realities always out of reach.
