    Its visionary ambition recalls the fertile sprawl of Villalobos’ 2003 debut Alcachofa; baroque techno blessed with the carefree spirit of lounge music and Quiet Storm, dressed up in tie-dye, the music on Amygdala glows with an easy confidence.

    Without necessarily bucking the trends of today, Koze has provided a complete picture of his truly singular outlook on dance music.
  3. Nothing here is overtly thrilling but ultimately the record is a real joy to listen to.

    The number of guests (including Matthew Dear, Apparat, and Caribou’s Dan Snaith) and the songs’ lengths, depths, and varying textures make it easy to get spun.

    [A] sleek and immersive new album.

    It's infectious and almost a little too odd, yet it's totally at ease. In other words, it's DJ Koze doing what he's done for well over a decade.

    Amygdala manages to feel like a singular labour of love, a 78-minute piece that never feels laborious that is the accomplishment.
