    Chet Faker, he's a capable producer, But he falls horrifically short as a singer, in my opinion. He does brings together a few decent songs and instrumentals on this debut album of his, though, specifically Talk Is Cheap and Gold.

    Chet Faker's debut album is amazing, he made huge huge progress after "Thinking in textures' EP. He reminds me of James Blake, but his voice is much deeper. It's perfect record to listen with your girlfriend. I keep listen to it whole time. There is no weak song, you don't have to press "forward" at any point. Music is brilliant, mix of electronic sounds with soft piano and other instruments. Everybody should give this CD a shot. 9/10 from me. Expand

    The album’s enthralling fusion of electronica and soul proves that Faker’s glass foundation is a prism showing his colorful range.

    Chet Faker's first full-length album proves that the artist is eager to explore new frontiers.

    It’s sometimes hard to tell who Faker wants to be, which is funny considering his name--but it’s massively enjoyable in bits and pieces.
