Thom Yorke Tomorrows Modern Boxes
Reviews

Thom Yorke’s surprise-released new album is a minor marvel low on surprises.

U2 Songs of Innnocence
Reviews

Given the price of admission – zero dollars for the next few weeks – Songs of Innocence is a bounty of riches, however mixed.

Banks Goddess
Reviews

The occasionally wonderful debut album from Banks is ultimately an exercise in unrealized potential.

Favorite Albums

FKA twigs’ LP1 is not just one of 2014’s best debuts, but one of its best albums, period.

Rejoice! The Spoon-iest of Spoon albums has arrived!

Sia 1000 Forms of Fear
Reviews

“Find a strong title, milk the metaphor.”

Lana Del Rey Ultraviolence
Favorite Albums

Lana Del Rey has been honing her craft in the public eye, with every misstep ruthlessly pilloried by people like me.

Robyn Royksopp Do It Again
Favorite Albums

Röyksopp and Robyn for once sound like bandmates, rather than guest stars on one another’s solo work.
