    It's an ironic title for an album that's so sure, and even if his early fans frown as their dancing shoes collect dust, complaining about what doesn't happen on Lost seems silly when compared to the wonderful and intoxicating things that actually do.

    The question for the producer going forward is whether any of these strong, statement instrumentals are more restricted by or benefit from collaborative effort. Because sometimes he's better off dancing on his own.

    His latest is no less a mixed bag. [Oct 2013, p.75]

    It's full of high drama, intense melancholy and crepuscular euphoria. [Nov 2013, p.116]

    Lost delivers the goods, and takes his music to whole new heights. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.94]

    This is a protracted album centred largely on song based material, and its rather inconsistent levels of success rely heavily on the quality of the melodies and textures, and on the strength of communication from the vocalists.

    This is powerful stuff, showing that not only is Anders Trentemøller one of the best in his field but also a master of the album craft. One for the long haul.

    Nothing is what it seems, and Lost coheres in this disorienting netherworld of drastic tempo changes, pachinko synths and 8-bit blips.

    Simply refusing to be pigeonholed, the Danish producer has managed to stray even further from the lively electronic style that was his making.

    Trentemøller’s studio chops are beyond question, but the results here suggest something of a new musical identity crisis.

    The mixtape of emotions Trentemoller has produced on Lost is proof of his virtuosity.

    There are occasional flashes of brilliance and inspiration here but for the most part it feels disjointed, a victim of 'too many cooks' syndrome and disappointingly conventional for an artist with such a proven track record for forward-thinking music.
  13. It’s still the instrumentals, with their bass growls and motorik rhythms, moody ambience, psychedelic wig-outs and violent moodswings, that have the most flavour.

    There is nothing better than hearing an artist reaching the apex of his power. Trentemøller arrives at that point with this album taking its rightful place amongst the best electronic albums released this year with comparative e

    It's a wild, theatrical and, at times, bloated ride.

    Lost has some gems! Not Trentemøller's finest work in my opinion (it's really hard to imagine him ever matching his first album), but he never fails to blend together a very unique array of influences to create very unique music. "The Dream", "Still on Fire", and "Never Stop Running" are some of my favorites. Full Review »
