    There is nothing worse than when people give in to sentimentality. This album alludes to good ideas but never applies them fully, the end result being a collection of forced and contrived themes. The production and composition of the album occasionally reveal brilliance, but the end result is a repetitive jumble of loops and samples (how many times do we have to hear that

    Mediocre and rough with not a single original idea. A meandering and thoughtless jumble of ideas with an overuse of scratching the same irritating voice samples. After all the hype this record is the biggest disappointment of the year so far.

  1. Free from the constraints of perfunctory pop structure, Dee funnels seemingly dissonant patterns into pulsing tides of harmonious congruence.
  2. It’s entirely too richly tragic and fitting that the man’s last release is the apotheosis of his work, the finest and most representative example of what he contributed to music and, in turn, how music inspired him.
  3. A schizophrenic palate of honeyed soul, downbeat electrix, timeless hip hop and bare-knuckle beats, these 31 tracks (spread over 44 minutes) are packed with triple the hooks – and suffer from attention deficit disorder (to the listener’s benefit).
