    Bold, brilliant and beautiful.
  2. 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.

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

    At just an hour in length, Immunity savours every moment, pulling on your heartstrings, lifting you off your feet and inviting you right back for more.

    By concentrating on his own endeavors, Jon Hopkins has created one of the year's most intriguing electronic recordings. [Jun-Jul 2013, p.99]

    The beauty is not lost, Hopkins just places a real-word façade on his delicate textures. Nothing in reality is without flaws and neither are Hopkins’ productions.

    Immunity pounds and pulses with pneumatic energy, its rhythmic tracks (“Collider” but also “Open Eye Signal”) gleaming with machine-precise hedonism.

    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. Expand

    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. Collapse

    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. Expand

    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. Expand
