  • Summary: The first solo album for the electronic artist in more than 10 years.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. No part of stately songs like the instrumental 'Nocebo' and especially the would-be pop hit 'Ruthless City' sounds desperate for attention, but they pay attention back with warm details that prove all the more wowing for their restraint.
  2. His new Double Night Time is a relatively introspective affair. It's also more satisfying as headphone fodder, thanks largely to a phalanx of synthesizers (burbling arpeggios cushion most tracks) and vocals from Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys.
  3. Despite the subtle stylistic shifts and gradual momentum building and releasing, no song feels out of place or misjudged.
  4. Ultimately a modest and compulsively listenable set of nocturnal electronic lullabies, Double Night Time's use of two- and seven-year-old tracks is not unwarranted.
  5. 80
    Double Night Time unapologetically flaunts its electronic overcoat, and glam it should, given the remarkably clean sounds coming from Geist’s boards.
  6. Double Night Time‘s dancefloor-ready material doesn’t leave one entirely convinced that Geist is ready to abandon that lifestyle just yet. However, with this album, he has molded a solid foundation for a future in mature synthpop, the next trip in Geist’s extended journey.

    Geist keeps it coolly retro. [Nov 2008, p.91]

    Downright brilliant. "Nocebo" through earphones almost had me falling off my chair with it's wit and energy.
