    While some of the ideas Zomby projects on 'Dedication' are fantastic, worth listening to and quite gripping for the large part, that's all the tracks feel like - an amalgamation of ideas thrown together in the space of less than an hour. Some of the more developed ideas feel like strong pieces of electronic music taken from places that feel as dark as some of Burial's best work, but some of the shorter and less coherent ideas slightly disrupt the flow of the album which keeps 'Dedication' below the line of fantastic.

    Nope. I tried to listen it a few times as i thought it had something with its weird electronics . But, no, its just noise. It doesnt go anywhere and is a disappointment . Best to skip.

    Whatever genre you want to label Dedication as, it is a remarkable album.

    The pervading mood of Dedication is oppressive and borderline paranoid, but it makes for wonderfully innovative, state-of-the-art urban electronica. [Aug. 2011, p. 104]

    They have a certain beauty, but it all feels sterile, airless. [Sep 2011, p.59]
