    • 80 Critic Score
    An album like this could be relevant at any time, really, but it takes the past couple of years to make it quite this livid. [Oct 2018, p.91]

    • 80 Critic Score
    The Dubliner's fourth album of original material is his most varied sonically, yet is perversely his least fussy, happy to let a simple melody be carried by his distinctively sweet, slightly prim diction. [Oct 2018, p.84]
    • Mojo
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Emanon is unequivocally a visual treat but in purely musical terms, it's nothing less than stunningly breathtaking. [Oct 2018, p.88]

    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Their latest warms the electronic pot with quirky pastoralism--brass, melodica, clattering-teacup percussion and tangible emotional warmth. [Oct 2018, p.94]

    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score

    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Coates uses an eccentric blend of rich strings and muffled hardcore rhythms that are seductive, haunting and deliciously weird. [Oct 2018, p.87]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the playful spirit and precise progressions of his previous albums linger, it's demonstrably darker entries that capture Gonzales's disarming craftsmanship best. [Oct 2018, p.91]

    • 80 Critic Score
    It's more varied and interesting: angular, Cure-guitar shapes, echoing shapes. [Oct 2018, p.94]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    He's still a whiz with a tart lyrical couplet, too. [Oct 2018, p.94]
    • Mojo
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Overall, Love, Loss, And Auto-Tuned is a deviant masterpiece. [Oct 2018, p.92]

    • 80 Critic Score
    Driven along by a renewed sense of urgency and purpose, this may be Richard Thompson's most creative album in decades. [Oct 2018, p.92]

    • 66 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Monsters Exist feels like a stadium rave washing machine, stuck on infinite cycle. [Oct 2018, p.88]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Glenn Jones's repeated trips to the well of John Fahey's American Primitive legacy seem to yield even more refreshing results. [Sep 2018, p.90]
    • Mojo
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    His commitment is palpable, the sequencing deft, and whole wilfully hit-free bombast-fest commendable, if scarcely palatable to anyone apart fro card-carrying Suede-heads. [Oct 2018, p.93]
    • Mojo
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Her lyrics draw you in, as she explores the chemistry of attraction on the title track to an appropriately sexy descending chord sequence, while a fly-by-night lover gets his comeuppance on Easy Street. [Oct 2018, p.84]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Material arcane yet relevant, as well as freshly minted. [Oct 2018, p.90]
    • Mojo
    • 88 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score

    • Mojo
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
