    A fully realized album filled with beautiful soundscapes and dreamy vocals. It already seems permeated by a certain nostalgia, making it a perfect record to make memories to.

    A Moment Apart is a further expansion of the ODESZA empire, and the duo's most ambitious, widescreen work yet.

    While A Moment Apart has the foundations of a great album, ODESZA fall slightly short of the mark.

    If you’re a little refreshed and in the midst of a heartfelt festival singalong, things might sound different. But it’s hard to get caught up in some of the grandiose gestures on offer here.

    By cramming so many songs onto the album, the quality inevitable begins to dip and later songs stick too rigidly to a formula that served earlier songs more effectively. When the duo do hit their stride, they show a natural ability to write tight, late summer floor fillers, with a number of tunes set to pack out dance festivals for years to come.

    It doesn’t help that their guest singers’ lyrics rarely scale heights comparable to the duo’s vertiginous waveforms.
