Turnstile - Time & Space
February 23, 2018
Critic Score
9 reviews

Time & Space is Turnstile taking what worked from their prior material and seasoning it with a modern, diverse zest. While this body of work has some blunders, the band are well on their way to what might soon be their pinnacle release.

4. Daughters - You Won't Get What You Want

Daughters - You Won't Get What You Want
October 26, 2018
Critic Score
12 reviews

By far their most dynamic offering, Daughters have pulled off one of the great comeback albums and further cemented themselves as a band with such singular creativity that they're nearly peerless.

2. Sleep - The Sciences

Sleep - The Sciences
April 20, 2018
Critic Score
10 reviews

To the sober ear, the drawn-out chugging riffs, which are the foundation of the band's sound, come off as stretched and border dangerously on the verge of repetition. But stoned, those riffs are ploughing the fields of your mind, pulling you into a deep hypnotic state washing everything away with rich distortion.

1. Vein - Errorzone

Vein - Errorzone
June 22, 2018
Critic Score
5 reviews

Errorzone is an unequivocal body of scorn with a ferocious sound, opaque imagery and despondent lyricism that Vein will be recalled for amongst their contemporaries in years to come.
