    Upon first impression, Milosh’s latest solo effort appears somewhat slight, but it deepens and reveals multiple layers with each listen.

    As on Woman, much of Jet Lag's lyrics slide between romantic and erotic, full of longing, discreetly laced with sexually suggestive content. It all adds up to a sophisticated electronic pop album with a serious lingering effect.

    Slipping into a pleasant indolence, out-of-focus piano ballads and back-masked tape loops populate this miniscule album.

    The best mood music transfixes; merely excellent, Jetlag is sometimes too easily relegated to the background.

    Jetlag comes off secluded and intuitive, which wouldn’t be a problem if he didn’t cut his talents short.

    A few songs are too long and self-indulgent (Do You Want What I Need, Hold Me), but the fuzzy synths, minor-key melodies and subtle worldy percussion make it very easy listening on the whole.

    Jetlag is a lot of interchangeable tunes that rests on the shoulders of Milosh’s undeniably pretty voice, seemingly released as soon as possible to capitalize on his success with Rhye after laboring in obscurity for the greater part of the decade.

    This impatience turns into a tension, and this tension is what allows for ten tracks of what are essentially love ballads to remain interesting after repeated listens. Expand

    Many may come to this album with recent adoration for Mr. Milosh's side group "Rhye", and some may be surprised by the change in character and dynamic at hand. You still have Milosh's beautiful, elegant vocal passages but this time the production and backdrop are dense waves of electronics with more attitude.

    4 albums in, Milosh is simultaneously breaking new ground yet perfecting his brand of densely layered electronic soul/R&B.
