I’m not surprised by ARTPOP having the worst score, it definitely doesn’t seem like the album that was made for critics and more for fans

Yeah the metacritic scores are about where I'd place them in terms of critical appeal tbh.

There's also

CLASH gives 8/10!!

"Across its sixteen tracks, ‘Chromatica’ is entirely over-the-top, but in the best possible way. Every song is an anthem of defiance and empowerment, turned up to 11 and genetically engineered for maximum danceability."

I have a good feeling that Chromatica could provide her with her best Metacritic score to date, but we'll see! I'll be amazed if this gets a mixed or negative response from some critics.

I see a Metacritic score of somewhere between 79-84 for this, although it deserves a solid 95

The Guardian have given it 4 stars: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/may/...ande-elton-john

"The ludicrous Elton John collaboration Sine From Above – which, with its panpipe-inflected beat and unstoppable euphoric rush, would win Eurovision on any given year – digs deeper into this simple idea that music can soothe even the most damaged soul.

Sour Candy, a collaboration with K-pop girl band Blackpink, falls disappointingly flat: aiming for the sweaty throb of deep house, it ends up sounding like a dashed off, cheaply produced interlude. "
