In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Rob Sheffield hails Sleigh Bells' second album, Reign of Terror, which "flattens you with its cartoonishly over-modulated, into-the-red guitar sound." Also, Jon Dolan says that Gorillaz, Andre 3000 and James Murphy's "DoYaThing" is a "zippy future-freak soul summit," and Jody Rosen dismisses Katy Perry's divorce anthem "Part of Me" as a "predictably effective piece of angsty dance-pop."
