Album artwork of 'The Dark Side of the Moon' by Pink Floyd

The Dark Side of the Moon Pink Floyd

Album artwork of 'Drones' by Muse

Drones Muse

Album artwork of 'Freedom's Goblin' by Ty Segall

Freedom's Goblin Ty Segall

Freedom’s Goblin is a victim of its own ambition, and of Segall’s protean talent. A lot of ground is covered, but the album’s identity never quite clicks into place.

Album artwork of 'Little Dark Age' by MGMT

Little Dark Age MGMT

MGMT plod along with all the charisma of a mumbler with a weak chin, and it’s not as if the mix is lush enough to distract from the absence of drive or direction.
