    Oh my god I love this album. With this album came the creation of a dark and enigmatic world that I was able to get sucked into with ease. That's what I love about andy stott's music, It has the capacity to draw me into a place I didn't expect to find comfort in. When listening I honestly feel like I'm in some neo noir, intergalactic setting in the future , and I feel like I belong in that setting whenever I listen. Expand

    Visceral, bleak and extremely immersive solitary listening is essential. It's been a very long time since I've encountered something so ethereal and dreamlike. saasdit's fairly predictable structurally (which isn't a criticism, merely an observation), Stott's bizarre sound pallet is instantly recognisable, forebodboding

    An absolutely brilliant record. Deep house bass and nice vocal samples make a great atmosphere. It is a very fulfilling listen and leaves me feeling refreshed.

    What a sublime hush of an album. Your iPhone dreams about this music.

    Never before has the producer been as sharp (or as murky) at the boards as he is here, seamlessly tuning long-winded drones with slavedriver clangs into hypnotic locked grooves.

    Luxury Problems is distinguished by the piercing vocals of Stott's former piano teacher, Alison Skidmore; looped, layered and heavily reverbed, they coil elegantly around Stott's brutalist constructions. [Jan 2013, p.83]
