But with tracks like "Blood and Form", "You Took Your Time", "Made to Stray", and "Slow" along with seven other tracks of sublime brilliance, this album not only blows through the expectation of their debut, it blows past any previously known forms of music to craft something completely new. At times emotional R&B, at other times dramatic, industrial electronica, and still others the post-dubstep they pioneered themselves, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth somehow manages to be a surprisingly cohesive album with deep lyrics as well. I do not know what Mount Kimbie will do next, but if it is even half as good as Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, it will be fantastic. The only album I can think of comparable to this one is Overgrown by James Blake, but that one is slightly more inclined to R&B, so keep that in mind.… Collapse
