    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Yet more caustic politico cold-funk disco grooves. [May 2019, p.96]
    • Mojo
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A "modular synthesis" of indefinable plonking building to bursts of static joy. [Apr 2019, p.96]
    • Mojo
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Believe it or not, there's room in the desert for yet another serious contender. [May 2019, p.91]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The album is saturated with heartbreak and bad decisions, perfectly decked in country-politan arrangements. [May 2019, p.87]
    • Mojo
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    As always, S&R stress character studies, from the envious and deluded guy in Mississippi Nuthin' to the broke-down elder in Hammer. [May 2019, p.94]
    • Mojo
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    In essence a tonic, The Medicine Show is a little bit more of what the world need now. [May 2019, p.93]
    • Mojo
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    No Geography bears testimony to superior crate-digging chops, cut-up skills and disco. [May 2019, p.86]
    • Mojo
    • 69 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The end result is dark and desolate, but also profound and provocative. [May 2019, p.86]
    • Mojo
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's all propelled by an energy exclusive to debut albums, the five-piece pulsing with post-punk fervour. [May 2019, p.89]
    • Mojo
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Good use of pot-banging percussion and swanee whistle electronics. [Mar 2019, p.99]
    • Mojo
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Hearing the acoustic demo for In The Heat Of The Morning, you have to feel for Bowie. Without the fussy grooviness of the studio version, it finds him in revelatory, limbering-up-for-Ziggy mode. ... The most significant discovery is Goodbye 3d (Threepenny) Joe ... soft-voiced and 12-stringy, it's a tail-between-the-legs yarn with choruses sung with a hard-boiled intimacy worthy of John Lennon. [May 2019, p.103]
    • Mojo
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Within the framework of 10 solid soul arrangements, the benefits of constancy in love brings a hearty restorative to the downtrodden spirit. [May 2019, p.92]
    • Mojo
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A similar debt to motorik beats turn this debut album from a potential Baggy cul-de-sac into an electro-gliding beauty. [May 2019, p.93]
    • Mojo
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It took the reformation of Three Hypnotics, his first band, to get his groove back. It's fully maintained on this second RM album, in gale force determination, resolution and incision. [Apr 2019, p.95]
    • Mojo
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    She's better shifting gears beyond her stylistic bounds. [May 2019, p.89]
    • Mojo
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Most of these 11 new songs begin with Tutlle's solo finger-picking guitar, and it's lovely. So's her voice. [May 2019, p.90]
    • Mojo
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    They push forward by recasting the music around them and assimilate it into who they already are. [Apr 2019, p.88]
    • Mojo
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Titanic Rising is a revelation. These opulent, sculptural songs have sacrificed none of Mering's idiosyncrasy, or ability to unnerve. [May 2019, p.87]
    • Mojo
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A profoundly sad and affecting collage of memory and longing, ghostly torch songs half-buried in the claustrophobic electronic clatter of the modern world. [May 2019, p.95]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Guy
    There's a great live feel, especially on the more uptempo cuts. [Apr 2019, p.90]
    • Mojo
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    What follows in this set is a chaos of experiment and assigned alliances. ... Ironically, the oldest recordings on You're The Man are--that single excepted--among the best Gaye here. [May 2019, p.100]
    • Mojo
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very fine album. [May 2019, p.94]
    • Mojo
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    What it lacks in vocal grit it makes up for in abundant hooks. [May 2019, p.96]
    • Mojo
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    These are acutely playful and poignant dissections of his world. [May 2019, p.87]
    • Mojo
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Greater prominence to the duo's quavering vocals, though, isn't quite as satisfying. In the long term, more jam and less song might just be their best strategy. [May 2019, p.95]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Segall's not reinventing the wheel--he's just here to keep the amps humming, as loud and as often as humanly possible. [Apr 2019, p.90]
    • Mojo
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Gibbons rises to the occasion. [May 2019, p.89]
    • Mojo
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The State Between Us offers a subtle, multi-layered but potent riposte to latter-day jingoism, the spirit of compassionate inclusion made manifest or woven implicitly into the eclectic sonic narrative. [May 2019, p.95]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There's a cohesion and thrust to the fusion, a mathematically bracing energy that they have't quite located since 2011's D. [Apr 2019, p.86]
