  • Summary: This third album is the most song-based effort yet for the Michigan electronic music producer, who also records under the name Audion.

What was that? You sound deserted Lost and alone The world around you has gone perverted Don't be afraid This is what you've been saving... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. Dear’s third album proves a wealth of open-window micro pop fit for summer gusts and unexpected flints of lightning.
  2. Throughout much of Asa Breed, Dear achieves a serendipitous balance between the uplifting and the eerie, the hummable and the hypnotic, the tuneful and the texturally adventurous.
  3. It’s a bold, ambitious statement from a techno producer keen to expand his range watch this space.
  4. A pop album that comes giddy with detailed digital patterns,
  5. Spin
    Dear infuses the snapping, beeping compositions of his second album with a sincere yearn, broadening the genre in the process. [Jul 2007, p.96]
  6. Much of Asa Breed sounds like TV On The Radio with more exacting production and a more pensive disposition.
  7. Under The Radar
    The minimal or micro house found on Asa Breed seems narrowly focused to appeal to a very specialized audience. [Summer 2007, p.87]

    "Deserter" is the best song of 2007. And the rest of the album's good too.
