    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.

    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.

    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.

    Beautifully paced album. Jon Hopkins has built intricate, pulsating, but not overbearing, multiple layers for new discoveries with each listen. Becoming immersed in this album is effortless and satisfying.

    If you don’t drift off too early, though, it all resolves, making for a sonically rich and delicately nuanced album.

    The first four songs are striking, stirringly beautiful techno numbers.... The album’s second half emphasizes ambience and texture, making for songs that are slow, contemplative and nourishing.
  3. 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.
