Definitely a disappointment after 'Half Way Home', but that's to be expected. Objectively,
though, this is still a ~3.6 purely because of how much her voice sticks out from the pack.

I really wanted to like this more, but I got annoyed that they kept using the same tricks over and over again (repetitive tinkling noises and layered vocals). It got real old by the 5th or 6th song. Still pretty good though.

I want to like it... but I don't. A couple of the songs are great, but the rest are just throw-away.
Bat For Lashes The Haunted Man1.5
She always manages to disappoint me... Laura is one of my favorite singles of the year, but there isn't a single other song on this album worth listening to. Love ya, but this sucks.

Beach Fossils Beach Fossils3.5
It has definitely grown on me. After the first few listens I thought that all of the songs sounded too similar; over time, though, it's really climbed my list.
Beach Fossils What A Pleasure2.5
Uuummm... I have to admit that this is EXACTLY what I would classify as 'my type of music' (aka hazy/lazy vocals and fuzzy guitars)... but it was just missing something. I wasn't bored when listening, but I didn't feel the need to listen to it (ever) again. Lots of potential... but maybe next time.
Beach House Bloom3.0
Beach House Devotion5.0
One of my favorite albums of all time. Every song is great and flows smoothly into the next... definitely an 'album' and not a collection of songs.

I want to like this more because 'Silver Soul' and 'Used To Be' are two of my favorite songs, but there are just so many blah tracks on here. Too bad.

Death Cab for Cutie The Photo Album5.0
People can hate on them all they want... but they can never take away this masterpiece of barely-suppressed anger. Perfect.
Death Cab for Cutie Plans2.0
It's a strained comparison, but this is (to me) Death Cab's 'Out Of Time': Two of their best songs (Soul Meets Body and I Will Follow You Into The Dark), and the rest is just forgettable. Nothing truly offensive, but just too inconsistent for me.
Death Cab for Cutie Narrow Stairs3.0
I THOUGHT I loved this album... but the more that I listen to it... the more I have to conclude that most of the songs are corny or forgettable. Cath... and Bixby Canyon Bridge are great, but the album is dragged down by the middle and end.
Death Cab for Cutie Transatlanticism4.0
I was originally (admittedly) a hater... but it's certainly grown on me. Their best after 'Photo Album'.
Death Cab for Cutie Codes and Keys2.0
Death Grips The Money Store3.5
The lyrics are almost unintelligible and the production is nothing to gawk at, but it definitely kept my attention. I'm reluctant to give it this high of an rating because of their real-life antics, but what can you do?

I don't understand a lot of the flack that this album is getting... Falling Down is actually one of my favorite
songs. Her voice is definitely throaty, but I'm into that. The production is beautiful and I like her spin on the
lyrics. I'm admittedly not a huge Tom Waits fan, but it sounds like she did her best to give him credit and she
obviously admires him. Idk. Maybe I'm just an amateur and everybody else has better eardrums. It seems like
she walked into this and there was nothing she could do BUT get hate.

I, for one, don't understand all the flack that this album is getting. It's cute, airy, melodic, and catchy. No, it's not asking for the wall to get torn down, and no, it's not going to win the Pulitzer any time soon, but that's not the point. It's an early-fall romance; beautiful in its simplicity.

Absolutely devastating. You can't listen to Kettering, Bear, and Epilogue without dying.

The Boy Least Likely To Best Party Ever2.5
Listened to it on Pitchfork's recommendation (I know, right) and was pretty disappointed. They don't stick out from the (rather large) crowd of child-like artists.

I bought this on a whim because their debut is pretty amazing, but this sucks. Her voice is toned down and the entire orchestration is pretty uninspiring.
The Cranberries Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?4.0
Definitely a 90s standout. It has the same great voice and melodies as their later albums without falling victim to their sometimes corny lyrics. Love.
The Cranberries No Need to Argue4.5
Either their best or their worst. Best: Zombie, Disappointment, Everything I Said, No Need To Argue, Daffodil Lament, Dreaming My Dreams, Ridiculous Thoughts. Absolute worst thing they've put out: Ode To My Family, Twenty One, I Can't Be With You, Yeat's Grave, The Icicle Melts, Empty. Overall, though, the strong easily overpower the weak and make their most ambitious and entertaining album.
The Cranberries To the Faithful Departed3.0
Just OK. A little too pop-y for my taste... not to mention that a lot of the lyrics are corny as hell. There are definitely some standouts, though.

I wanted to like it... I really did... but I found myself fading in and out of interest. Her voice is definitely pretty; the production is definitely cutesy; but it didn't sum up to much. Three Little Birds was an exception, but not enough of one to bring the rest of the album up.

I'll admit that I like this primarily for Nico on 'I'll Be Your Mirror' and 'Femme Fatale' (which, I'm sure, isn't a very popular statement), but the rest is quite good as well. Lou's voice is a little grating (not to my taste) but he makes up for it with his lyrics.

I don't MIND the album (it's probably more like an 'average') but I have to give a lower rating because there was the POTENTIAL for a 4-4.5. If they could have done the entire album like 'Candy Girl' and 'Wish You Were Red' (i.e. strong bass melody with moody lyrics) then this would have been one of the best of the year. Instead its a hazy mess. Her voice is so unique and they buried under noise.

True Widow As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center2.0
The instrumentals are SO LONG and boring I could barely sit through the first couple songs. You know I love some fuzzy guitars... but this was too much.
tUnE-yArDs Nikki Nack4.0
Tyler the Creator Wolf1.0
I'll admit that I actually would have enjoyed listening to this if I didn't speak English... or even if I just didn't know the meaning of a couple words (I'm sure you can guess which ones).rBut I do. I fully understand the argument that 'those words' are supposed to provoke emotions and are not targeted at any group, but that doesn't change the fact that they ARE targeted at a group. rToo bad. He's obviously got talent, but he's behind the curve on this one.

Completely unremarkable and average. It sounds just like half a dozen other synth-y bands out there (although I must admit I love the cover art).

Totally bizarre, but totally lovable. The main criticism is probably going to be that there is too much instrumental, but I barely noticed. Loved.
