The Chemical Brothers - No Geography
April 12, 2019
Critic Score
77
23 reviews

It certainly has a strong first half ... if less praise can be heaped on the latter half of No Geography, its contours will at least be sweetly familiar to longtime fans.

Leif - Loom Dream
June 21, 2019
Critic Score
74
3 reviews

8.

Fennesz - Agora
March 29, 2019
Critic Score
76
9 reviews

Taken in at a moderate volume, the album is easier to consume, but no less dominating. This is about as far from background music as it is possible for an ambient recording to be.

Critic Score

Holly Herndon - PROTO
May 10, 2019
Critic Score
81
20 reviews

Sounding more like the future than ever before, Holly Herndon broadens the scale and scope of her practice yet again on PROTO.

3.

Thom Yorke - ANIMA
June 27, 2019
Critic Score
82
33 reviews

ANIMA ... sheds the largely one-dimensional production of The Eraser and the monochromatic moods of Tomorrow's Modern Boxes to stand as Yorke's richest solo effort to date.

2.

Flying Lotus - Flamagra
May 24, 2019
Critic Score
78
31 reviews

Across 27 songs — many of them lasting between a minute and two — Flamagra plays like a staggered daydream, where you occasionally return to consciousness, only to slip back into slumber soon after.

1.

Floating Points - Crush
October 18, 2019
Critic Score
80
18 reviews

Though the sonic explorations undermine the album's overall cohesiveness, Crush remains a shining example of Shepherd's growth as an artist, and his willingness to push boundaries well into his career.
