    Gallo's eccentricity is bound to irritate at least as many as it charms. [Jan 2019, p.91]

    • 80 Critic Score
    He sublimates his playing to the whole throughout, his swerving tones and arching lines ducking and diving through cracks in the strings. [Jan 2019, p.88]
    • Mojo
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Their improvisational roots are still evident, but the bursts of outsider pop shining through proves they have plenty more to dig up. [Jan 2019, p.89]

    The best record of her life. [Jan 2019, p.85]

    • Mojo
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Some of the catchiest Deadbeats tunes to date. [Jan 2019, p.92]
    • Mojo
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Foster's is an oddly moving, crepuscular and dream-like world to get happily lost in. [Jan 2018, p.91
    • Mojo
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Vessel creates a sense of immersion and collapsing boundaries. [Jan 2018, p.89]
    • Mojo
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Thresholder is the sound of celestial awe striking, albeit sometimes opaquely. [Jan 2019, p.89]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The 13 songs, mostly slow to midtempo with some very fine lyrics, sound pensive and personal. [Jan 2018, p.86]
    • Mojo
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This is a band who need to shrink back a little, switch off the emotional wind-machine, and work out how to make the personal less impersonal. [Jan 2019, p.86]
    • Mojo
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The Lillywhite Sessions doesn't just open another window into Walker's mind, it points out a door to a place beyond. Not everyone will want to go too far through it, but it's an alluring gateway. [Jan 2019, p.86]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Fans of Badu, Solange and Janelle must investigate. [Jan 2019, p.85]
    • Mojo
    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's no arguing with the brilliance if New Partner or I See A Darkness, though the sweetness of Oldham's mature voice and the impressionistic arrangements tend to detract from their ominous gravity. [Jan 2019, p.84]
    • Mojo
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Understandably, the 76-year-old's voice has lost some if its technical precision, but the backdrops have light touch and when she growls Don't Lie To Me's motif, "How do you sleep?" or evokes "thunderclouds of alibis" on the imperious The Rain Will Fall, she oozes despair and fury. [Jan 2019, p.84]
    • Mojo
    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's Shabason's sax that endures; pensive and humane, even when assailed by glitches. [Dec 2018, p.92]
    • Mojo
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A new buoyancy runs through the album from the sprightly, Eno-esque Italy to the waltz-time drama of Surrounded, and Heal, where the voice of her daughter features. Nonetheless, murk is not far below the surface--in Creep, blossoms are rotting. [Dec 2018, p.92]
    • Mojo
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The pace down Mark Knopfler's latest road is steady and unruffled, like a 72-minute walk around a familiar locale--reassuring but rather lacking in excitement. [Dec 2018, p.87]
    • Mojo
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    If any art is currently encapsulating the sense of "wrongness" abroad in our land, this is it. [Dec 2018, p.82]
    • Mojo
    • 78 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    By the closing traditional, Fair Annie (Child Ballad 62), much of the atmospheric murk has lifted, revealing a radiant kinship with the like of Trees, similarly uncanny folk-rock alchemists from the cusp of the 1970s. [Dec 2018, p.88]
    • Mojo
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    B.E.D.'s nine-tracks barely top 20 minutes, but it's terrific while it lasts. [Dec 2018, p.87]
    • Mojo
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The gold standard rock double LP, Ladyland now boasts 12 solo demos, eight studio outtakes (notably the stunning Angel Caterina, alias 1983), plus a September '68 Hollywood Bowl show. [Dec 2018, p.104]
    • Mojo
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ambitious, complex, raging and poetic. a testament to the possibilities of thrash. [Dec 2018, p.103]
    • Mojo
    • 79 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    While much here errs toward vanilla and cheese, delectably idiosyncratic morsels are also on the menu. [Dec 2018, p.100]
    • Mojo
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Corgan's ear for pop-hooks is keen throughout, but save for Knights Of Malta, with its piano, strings and backwards lead guitars, the music on Shiny And Oh So Bright... seems a tad under-imagined for its portentous title. [Dec 2018, p.84]
    • Mojo
    • 100 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Martin's remix feels like the closest anyone can get to sharing the headspace of the people who made the music. The detail is staggering. [Dec 2018, p.98]
    • Mojo
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Though humour abounds, there's also some serious musicianship on display, both from the mercurial Goldblum and his excellent band. [Dec 2018, p.90]
    • Mojo
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This Giorgio Moroder-soundtracking-Black Mirror approach isn't always successful. ... The slick AOR of Something Human suggests their decision to move away from riff-rock isn't wholly misjudged. [Dec 2018, p.84]
    • Mojo
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Even at 52, this Dinosaur senior is a miracle of ongoing evolution. [Dec 2018, p.88]
    • Mojo
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Moon-June-balloon lyricism can let him down, but when he;s good (see Smiths-ish portrait song John) he's great. [Dec 2018, p.94]
