    First time I heard this album the tracks sounded wierd, but everytime I listen to the album, it gets more and more addicting. Its nothing like I've ever heard before. Lyrics are simple but the beats are different but awesome. Starts of slow but the tracks starting in the middle onwards is where its at.

    Could have been a bit more consistent for my taste but man does it feel good to here creative, catchy, and unique electronic music like this. I'm anticipating a lot more great music to come from SBTRKT

    SBTRKT's downtempo, mellow nature means it's a dance album that's unlikely to ever be played in a club, but showing James Blake that sparse, minimal dubstep and well-crafted pop melodies aren't mutually exclusive, it's a daring debut which lives up to the masked man's "next big thing" label.

    Inventive Londoner plunders all corners of the dancefloor. [Aug. 2011, p. 123]

    SBTRKT isn't going to break down any barriers in the obsessively experimental world that it was birthed, but it's a thoroughly solid listen all the way through. Which is a lot more than his supposed peers could say about their debut albums.
