    Armed with a collection of adrenaline-pumping beats and diverse vocal appearances, it's a musical force that continues to establish Zimmerman's place among the house music greats.

    Having always been a master at transcending genres, he makes sure his new album includes something for every musical taste.

    >album title goes here< may show a more mature, artistically evolved deadmau5, but it'll still sell out auditoriums.

    Deadmau5 brings a love of spectacle--and the humor of a natural ham--to his strobe-lit club anthems.

    Flying in the face of his public persona, this is a sprawling (could be tighter) and humble (could be more persuasive) Deadmau5 album and one best suited for established fans.

    At his best - "The Veldt," "Closer," and "Channel 42," which has a nice, Cameo-like wah-funk wiggle - Deadmau5 is a topflight roots-of-EDM mimic. At his worst, he's a troll.

    What strikes you first about Album Title Goes Here, apart from the moronic postmodernism-for-tweens title, is how resolutely un-danceable it is.

    Just another great CD to workout to, do homework, drive, and enjoy life. Everything is better listening to Deadmau5, and he is diverse enough to have music that appeals to any mood I could be in. Collapse

    Pretty good album and satisfied with purchase. There are some really bassy songs like Channel 42 and Fn Pig. This album is mixed with vocals and techno. Expand

    Some great tracks, some OK tracks, a couple I found a little annoying or totally out of place for deadmau5. The album doesn't flow very well; it's too bad he didn't write it as a continuous mix like his others (though there is a pretty good one on youtube by SNSR3DLINE). I'll give it a decent rating because I like deadmau5, and there are some great songs on here, but he can definitely do better. Expand

    >Album Title Goes Here< is certainly does little to be the most standout offering from the now super-popular Deadmau5. Nokia has uses Deadmau5 in great amounts to showcase their products worldwide through 4D city-wide projects, and it's been cool. But all that stardom warrants greater expectations from the fan base and those who are interested in checking in with Deadmau5 for the first time. While >Album Title Goes Here< won't necessarily be regarded as his best work overall, there are some stellar movers & shakers to be found here. Easily one of the best cuts features My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way on "Professional Griefers", carrying a tightly woven, sick & infectious production with Way shout-chanting his way through some kind of post-apocalyptic surreality where the world is gone insane and digital fantasties run amuck. Outside of Griefers and the album opener "Superliminal", >Album Title Goes Here< finds most of its stride in restrained club-house tendencies. "The Veldt", "October", and "Closer" demonstrate this greatly with longer intros that blend into steady beats overlain with programmed synthesizers to carry the hooky melodies. No, this may not be his best work, but it certainly is fun and worth adding to the collection for already-fans. Newcomers may want to start with some of the predecessors to >Album Title Goes Here< before fully jumping in this late in the game. Expand

    For anyone who's familiar with EDM's favorite mau5, Album Title Goes Here is as expected more of the same, and whether that be a yay or nay, is up to the listeners. For newer audiences that may not be familiar with the EDM cult, "Professional Griefers" featuring Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance is probably the most accessible track, featuring electronic guitar-esque stuttered beats along with Way's signature aggressive vocals. Its recommendable tracks are "There Will Be Coffee", a progressive house breakdown that's strong on melody, "The Veldt", another progressive house song strong on melodies which blend swimmingly with newcomer James' soothing voice, and "Telemiscommunications", which features synthpop songstress Imogen Heap in one of her most plausible vocal performances to date. However, its negativity derives from the negatives previous album faced: deadmau5's sheer lack of progression, with tedious opener "Superliminal" and headache inducing "Maths" being notable examples of that. So far fans, it depends on whether you're looking for the same ole, same ole. And for newer audiences, it just depends on what you expected from the hype. Expand

    I don't really understand all of the success behind dubstep, especially from artists like Deadmau5, which is probably one of the stupidest names I have ever heard in my life. This is all just electronic noise with an alarming amount of high pitched noises that hurt my ears. It's similar to my opinion on football. Why do people like the stupidest things? I'll never know.
