    • 80 Critic Score
    The working drafts may have comprised a more direct, accessible album. But this monument to Clark's troubled masterpiece shows how deep and far he was willing to go to capture--and share--the salvation in a song. [Dec 2019, p.107]

    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    No Treasure But Hope is further refinement of what they've been doing in the past. [Dec 2019, p.89]
    • Mojo
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An uncomfortable listen, especially the Big Star's Third-esque When I Think Of You, but also an album imbued with acceptance and dignity. [Nov 2019, p.93]
    • Mojo
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It's a challenging listen, but more exhilarating than pretentious. [Dec 2019, p.95]

    • 74 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Its instrumental first disc a foreboding seas of sputtering synths, dislocated drums and disorienting ideas. Yet rare moments of beauty peak through. ... A similar wilful primitivism pervades disc two. [Dec 2019, p.95]

    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's really a nightmare world Oldham describes, but he cloaks it in tender beauty, slight-of-hand that remodels human failure into heartening endurance, a consoling story against the cold. [Dec 2019, p.88]
    • Mojo
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The Sisypheans is measured and reflective. [Dec 2019, p.91]
    • Mojo
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Beat-less but involving standouts like Memphis Helena, with its plangent lead line intimately tracked by Nelson's hushed hazy intoning, and elegiac, rippling acoustic guitar-propelled Muriel Spark are as inexorable and immersive as a high summer sunset. [Dec 2019, p.92]
    • Mojo
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a good album, but the standout track is just him alone on Beograd, a swirling big-room French house track, where he is beautifully lost in the beats. [Dec 2019, p.93]
    • Mojo
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Profligate, self-indulgent and, against all oddly, hugely satisfying. ... [The single-disc] Sampler Edition is a handy 58-minute entry point to the mad endeavour. [Dec 2019, p.90]
    • Mojo
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Girl Ray's metamorphosis is still ongoing, and that their true final form may resemble something darker and more substantial than Girl's neon reveries, diverting though they are. [Dec 2019, p.94]

    Closer listens reveal small universes of movement, tension and suspense pulsing just beneath the surface. [Dec 2019, p.88]

    • 80 Critic Score
    From Out Of Nowhere is a stronger, better focused set than its predecessor. [Dec 2019, p.84]
    • Mojo
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is a hazy path through a dusty landscape of sadness and enlightenment that never arrives at answers or certainties, but shimmers with an eternal mystery. [Dec 2019, p.90]

    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's a damn good listen, all of it. Generous and revelatory, to borrow Rosanne's words, and at times mind-blowing. [Dec 2019, p.100]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score

    Twigs plants words with tenacious deliberation and care, but sometimes the result is over-studied, a gentle industrial emo. [Dec 2019, p.93]
    • Mojo
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Nursing you back to equilibrium with its sumptuous balm of laid-back growers, Up On High is a near-perfect hangover record. [Nov 2019, p.93]

    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tense, rewarding, avant-garde jousting abounds. [Nov 2019, p.96]

    Whatever the sonic weather, Gira's spiritual austerity remains unimpaired.[Nov 2019, p.89]
    • Mojo
    • 77 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Alex Menne's Dolores O'Riordan-ish yodel still dominates and can overwhelm the songs, but Big Thief fans should take note. [Dec 2019, p.96]
    • Mojo
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Alongside jay Berliner's guitar lines, meaty chunks of organ, grooves aplenty and a soulful collection of new songs, it's a convincing performance. [Dec 2019, p.86]
    • Mojo
    • 77 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With swaying synths, popping drums, synth melodies and wistful lyrics, it's Depeche Mode for the juicing era. [Dec 2019, p.96]

    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The fervid prog punk of Flesh Fondue, the synth collision of 65 Million Years Ago and the trippy Nets Of Space are further high-points on this constantly regenerating trip. [Nov 2019, p.94]
    • Mojo
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    They approach the tradition with an awe and wonder that especially percolates into the instrumentals. ... Their most extreme statement yet. [Dec 2019, p.89]

    • 75 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    This sounds raw and mighty, but somewhat same-old. [Dec 2019, p.94]
