Meliora by Ghost

Review
Crosswords by Panda Bear
Pretty Much Amazing

Crosswords, as a collection of loose leaves, doesn't have the weight of Grim Reaper but that also means it doesn't have the pressure. Crosswords is something you can just consume without trying to wring every inch of intent out of it.

Crosswords by Panda Bear

Though Crosswords’ lackadaisical pleasantness is by no means offensive, there’s no compelling reason for this EP to exist.

Crosswords by Panda Bear
Under The Radar

Of the other four previously unreleased tracks, "No Mans Land" utilizes the classic Panda Bear tropes of expertly weaving weird and wonderful, dense and disorientating aural oddness with more accessible vocal prettiness.

That's the beauty of The Expanding Flower Planet—its songs are unconventional, enveloping and mesmerising. 'Cosmic ideal' is not far off the mark.

Weirdo Shrine by La Luz

Weirdo Shrine by La Luz

Wave[s] by Mick Jenkins
XXL

Mick uses Wave[s] to show his growth, versatility and risk-taking fearlessness. And although it doesn’t pan out on every track, the cohesive work allows the listener to feel that they’ve plunged into the depths of Mick’s mind and come out with a soaked sense of clarity.

Wave[s] by Mick Jenkins
HipHopDX

If The Water[s] helped us excavate the depths of Mick Jenkins’ mind, Wave[s] is the result of coming up for air. The fierce lyricism isn’t gone it just comes in waves. The food for thought isn’t gone it just comes in waves.

While Luke Steele's influences show through on all of Lovers' tracks, somehow the album avoids sounding totally derivative; instead, it just reveals Steele as a pop chameleon and an expert at pastiche.

Lovers by The Sleepy Jackson

The evidence here suggests the Sleepy Jackson could make a great punk album, or a great country album, or a great psychedelic album. Instead, they've simply made a great album, and one of the best debuts of the year.

Review
Lovers by The Sleepy Jackson
Pitchfork
If his eccentricity was tamed and the pained attempts to hop genres were avoided, Luke Steele could just produce something close to sublime. As it stands, Lovers is a fairly pleasant application of some charming reference points, but please, let's stop pretending that that's good enough.

Review
Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz by Miley Cyrus
Rolling Stone

Most of Dead Petz sounds pretty much like the Lips' latter-day output — she aims for Coyne-like high notes that don't suit her lowdown voice. But she scores wacko successes like "Milky Milky Milk," "Cyrus Skies" and "Slab of Butter (Scorpion)," along with cameos from Big Sean, Ariel Pink and producer Mike Will Made It.

All Yours by Widowspeak
Consequence of Sound

All Yours doesn’t demand much of its players or its listeners, and sometimes that’s the treatment a breakup album needs. But it also gives the album a feeling of transience, of drifting by like a summer day where nothing much happens in particular.

Anthems For Doomed Youth by The Libertines
Consequence of Sound

Much of the album rides that line between the pain of the past and the pleasure of having gotten through it. Consequently, it frequently lacks catharsis and powerful moments. Rather than dip into the depths or climb to the heights, Anthems sits in a gray middle.

much of A.K.A. is still mawkish, midtempo melodrama that does too much to accentuate J. Lo’s tunelessness.

Review
A.K.A. by Jennifer Lopez
The Guardian
AKA veers from power balladry to squawking hip-hop (shame about the name, but I Luh Ya Papi has a ferocious hookline) to an EDM track (First Love) that sweetly extols the pleasure of finding the right person long past the first flush of youth. The only problem? There are so many production cooks (and the ubiquitous Pitbull) that the broth is a bit characterless at times.

A.K.A. by Jennifer Lopez

A.K.A. by Jennifer Lopez
Rolling Stone
At her best, J. Lo combines and energizes familiar dance-pop sounds to make music worth getting lost in (in 1999, "Waiting for Tonight"; in 2011, "On the Floor"). On her eighth album, however, she just sounds lost.

A.K.A. by Jennifer Lopez

The only song here that even approaches classic J. Lo is the single ”I Luh Ya Papi,” a bubbly sung-spoken jam that finds her lovin’ on backseat hookups and hatin’ on enunciation. Other than that? There’s just not a lot to luh here.

Review
A.K.A. by Jennifer Lopez
AllMusic
Iggy's showcase arrives on "Acting Like That," one of several tracks produced by Leon Youngblood, and his contributions -- which also include the title track and "So Good" -- are the moments on the record that get it right, balancing the heavy club throb with pop hooks that rely on feel as much as Lopez's vocals. When the scale tips too heavily toward rhythm -- as it does on "Booty" and "I Luh Ya Papi" -- the productions don't do Lopez many favors, burying her in their thrum.
