  1. All in all, Hopkins’ roadmap is splendidly plotted, taking the right amount of time to deliver you to your destination and showing you the detours you didn’t even know you wanted to see.

    Bold, brilliant and beautiful.

    This is an intelligent and deeply human album and it would be no exaggeration to say that it’s already a modern classic.

    It all adds up to a remarkably visceral, sensual, confident electronic record that stays absorbing from beginning to end, and should finally catapult Hopkins to stardom in his own story.

    Immunity is a journey to be savoured, revisited regularly in the knowledge that some new landmark will emerge each and every time.

    Immunity presents itself as the missing piece of the puzzle, the catharsis we were conditioned not to expect. In this very moment, our preconceptions of Jon Hopkins have been entirely undermined--and there’s little to do but enjoy the hell out of the twist of events.

    The record is an absolute trip: a movable feast pressed to 12 inches of microgroove.

    Immunity is not for everyone, especially those who come to electronic music merely for its club-ready, dancefloor offerings. But for those who listen seeking to peer into sonic worlds that might not otherwise exist, Hopkins has created one which is rich with gorgeous detail and worth fully exploring.

    A revelation to hear and especially see (performing live) Mr. Hopkins dance with his fingers on those Kaoss Pads painting landscapes of not obvious, precise but not tidy, classical driven and sometimes stuttering (in the out most positive way) beats. The summer of 2013 was absolutely a non-stop Immunity-time for me. Full Review »

    The later tracks may suffer a little from the lack of character and cohesion but nevertheless, Immunity is a touching, exciting and truly adventurous album of sonic wonder. An album like this can truly prove the power and significance to electronic music. Full Review »

    This is the best electronic album of the year. My favorite this year along with the National is fantastic from the opening track to the end. Jon Hopkins is vastly underrated and this album is a great example of that. Full Review »
