    Bespoke is a study in contrast, a series of juxtapositions. It's all about dissonance and musical friction in lieu of harmony and ease. It is not the sum of its parts-it's about the individual parts themselves.

    Occasionally, as on the stuttering, beats-at-war-with-the-tune One And Lonely, it's not so successful, but in the main it's easy to feel both the width and the quality. [Jun 2011, p.106]

    Bespoke features a wealth of sounds and guest singers, but Darlington often lacks the glue to hold them together.

    To be a little more complimentary, Bespoke sounds like darkly magnolia-lined city streets, like late afternoon, like crisp hotel beds. Darlington may have tailored the album from existing sonic cloth, but at least this time the seams are a little more skillfully sewn.
