    For now, The Redeemer’s many tangles make even some of the most personal music this year sound tedious.

    For those willing to be enveloped by it, it will wrap itself around you refusing to let go and reward you with an experience unlike many other albums you’ll hear this year.

    Such interventions, like the coughing fit that concludes "Brutal," are vital in the fabric of The Redeemer, which feels part art installation, part cri de coeur, but all true--further reason to believe the Hype.

    It's as intoxicating a listen as anything we've heard from the duo to date, drawing its power from the combination of Blunt's ideas, fluid and often semi-literate musicality, and world-weary persona.

    Blunt’s past records steeped that sincerity in reverb or in incomprehensible in-jokes-the beauty was in the blur. This time around, he’s figured out that he doesn’t look too shabby in focus either.

    It wanders more like a Hype Williams album would, and leaves that opening promise to dangle unfulfilled.

    The Redeemer, despite its pinpoint sonics, doesn't take the logical next step of offering a moment of reflection or clarity. [May 2013, p.50]
