    Considering Saul's reputation and pedigree, crafting a largely non-dancefloor album under a pseudonym is a brave move, but one that Getting Closer arguably vindicates.

    Getting Closer is fashionable and curious, but there's an extreme lucidity to it that is off-putting, forgetting for a moment a handful of dud tracks.

    As nice and welcoming as Getting Closer is, it'll never challenge you.

    While it’s hard not to view the five solo instrumentals as some of the strongest work here, overall Getting Closer is well worth some private investigating.

    Getting Closer comes off as an undecided jumble of background and foreground music. Nice, but not necessary, this one falls somewhere between a promising debut and glossy, pretty wallpaper.

    For all this record’s gesturing towards pop directness, it is sorely lacking in impact and in memorability.
