  • Summary: Portland, Ore. ambient electronica artist Matthew Cooper returns with a fourth album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 11
  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. Copia is Cooper’s greatest work to date, but it leaves even more roads for him to take.
  2. A magnificent set, awash in textures, atmospheres, moods, and emotion.
  3. Copia is the sound of Cooper surpassing himself, combining his patented minimalist drones with beautifully rendered piano.
  4. While spare in its construction, Copia offers a bounty of emotion for those who give it the chance.
  5. My issue with Copia-- the thing that keeps this record from greatness-- is Cooper's approach to piano.
  6. Eluvium has crafted an album that is at once immediate and accessible while deceptively complex.
  7. Great art must provoke or inspire you, and I’m sorry to all the folks out there “awash” in Eluvium’s dreamy “soundscapes” of pure “emotion” and “beauty”, but this record does neither.
