    While, in a sense, Room(s) is by definition an amalgamation of most of the trends and ideas floating around in the electronic music sphere at the moment, it sounds like nothing else, and its execution is so cutthroat and streamlined that it's nearly flawless.

    With Room(s), Travis Stewart has somehow managed not only to wrangle in the off-the-cuff tendencies of the genre, but also create one of the more fully realized dance LPs in some time.

    A dizzying tapestry of rave, Chicago footwork, jungle, hip-hop and soulful pop. [Aug. 2011, p. 104]

    Like similarly engaging pop music, Room(s) diversifies and moulds its winning formula into a variety of fledgling creations.

    The only shortcoming is that Machinedrum lacks a definitive singular angle, making him amongst the frontrunners of dubstep/juke interpretation, but not quite ahead of the pack.

    What stops it being Great, as opposed to great, is the feeling that Machinedrum's basically working his way through segments of his music taste, having a crack at one after another. That is to say, he's a follower, one now signed to a label that's often been a haven for innovators.

    The result is at once fluid and fractured, with a restless experimental edge that never quite allows the beat to settle into anything approaching a predictable pattern. [Sep 2011, p.104]
