  1. Perhaps the strongest full-length electronic release from Denmark since Trentemoller's "The Last Resort," Standing on Top of Utopia found the DJ/producer creating not merely a solid album but a strong and surprising one.
  2. 70
    Standing on Top of Utopia is a strong album, but utopia also means “an illusion”–a non-existent place–and sometimes it sounds like too many moods under one cover.
  3. Bjorke is clearly an artist-producer who likes to put his finger in lots of different pies, and he should be commended for such restlessness and flexibility. Still, it would be nice to see him pursue some of these avenues a bit more thoroughly as opposed to cramming so many detours into one 48-minute trip.
  4. 60
    Bjorke's ear candy is delightful when consumed, but rarely worth a repeat. Still, Bjorke has plenty of sonic reach, and his album is worth a spin to find the scattering of gems.
