    Free Your Mind won't surpass Screamadelica on any lists--it's far too much indebted to both that record and era--but you'll have a difficult time finding an album in 2013 that's as utterly energizing and sublime as this.

    Remarkably devoid of pretensions, Free Your Mind is a dance record boiled down to its most essential, body-shaking elements, and the purest distillation of Cut Copy’s music and their ethos yet.

    It's all just a bit bizarre. 90s cheese-rave. Somewhere between Ace Of Base and James Blake. Doesn't sound like the band we know and love. Just odd................................................................................................. Full Review »

    This album is filled to the brim with Madchester-style goodness. Imagine if someone invited New Order, The Orb, KLF, Happy Mondays, and Primal Scream to their house and threw one hell of a party. The 808 State birds I especially enjoyed. This is the sort of music I remember from when I first fell in love with electronic music, before EDM was reduced to vapid electro four on the floor goo for the masses. [I'm looking at you Calvin Harris and David ruined music!]

    Meet Me In A House Of Love is the BEST song on the album and possibly the greatest song they have written to date. Corner of the Sky and So Haunted being tied for second.

    The album is clearly influenced by 90s dance music. While that can generally be considered a good thing, it's not in Cut Copy's case. Aside from very few good tracks, the album isn't what i expected after their brilliant 2011 outing, Zonoscope. Full Review »
