  1. All Of Us, Together isn't an attempt to disown his early work and roots. Jamison just made the record he felt like making, and that's why it so easily matches his best material.

    A vital, woozy summer repose, nine tracks in the perfect sequence for drifting off on a lazy, languorous May afternoon.

    While the album, at times, feels a bit monochromatic, it maintains its intrigue and never loses its vision.

    This record is not out to shatter you; its aim, rather, is to fuel your night drive through the dusky electronic corridors of sun-warmed youth.

    Like those '70s Teutonic adventurers tracks such as Treten, with its aerated harmonics and oddly motorik beat, aim for mind-expanding mantric intensity. [Jul 2012, p.112]

    Ultimately, it's an accomplished record that makes all the right noises (in the most literal sense), but it lacks the final wow factor to push it into true greatness.

    All of Us, Together doesn't feel right as the first full-length statement being made by an artist of this caliber, but it definitely serves as an appealingly breezy 45 minutes of summer dance music.

    The album is never less than pretty, but it's so slight and drifting that it's difficult to grasp.

    At times, it sounds far less like his beloved Boys of Summer 2009 so much as a simplified homage to Kompakt's more populist acts, electronic's version of a neophyte performing solo acoustic versions of Zeppelin or Radiohead at a college bar.

    While Teen Daze's formula has worked in EP form in the past, it wears thin by the end of the full-length album.

    Ultimately though, All of Us, Together is a slight affair, with Teen Daze desperately clinging to genre hallmarks when he has the potential to be so much more.

    Generally devoid of memorable melodies, and as stale as airplane air, All of Us, Together lands, with a few minimal exceptions, with a gigantic barely mediocre thud.

    Preset instrumentation and uninspired song structures notwithstanding, you could tack on just about any other blog-buzzing name--like, say, Washed Out, Blackbird Blackbird, or Houses--to these songs, and no one would second guess it.
