    Honestly, I love SHM, but I beed to say that this album isn't even an album - it's a compilation, so it can't do that well. Had there been exclusives to the album, rather than a cheaply put together collection, it would be 8. Secondly, I have to -1 for a Hard Rock Sofa track - like come on srsly?! But other than that, I still have to say that the tracks on these are, for the most part,Honestly, I love SHM, but I beed to say that this album isn't even an album - it's a compilation, so it can't do that well.

But other than that, I still have to say that the tracks on these are, for the most part, very nice. Greyhound, Miami 2 Ibiza, Don't You Worry Child, Every Teardrop is a Waterfall and One are all good, with a shoutout to DYWC and Greyhound especially. But Antidote is just an out-of-place SHM track (Swedish HOUSE Mafia), Calling has some kinda weak, generic production, but is still quite good, and Save the World is just an incredibly commercial "dance" track. So of course I love SHM, but the standard edition of this is pretty decent, but really it's only worth like a 7. -1 for the "album" when it's really a compilation (literally only there to serve as a departure collection), -1 for the Hard Rock Sofa track, and -1 for lack of any content (10 tracks?!)

    I like SHM very much but this album is a bit too much eletronic and a little weak comparing to "Until One who as Dance/Club Epic anthems But its not all bad I LOVE Don't You Worry Child for me thats the song of the year the lyrics are awsome and the melody just makes you want to dance all night and get reckless is really one of those songs who can give you chills

    Great album, with exceptional features. I listen to this album or a few tracks as often as possible. It is an exciting compilations of songs. I only object to the seemingly template based tracks, lacking creativity. Knowing what to expect from SHM you should be happy with this album.

    Very good album. It has a lot of fantastic songs and also it has many collaborations with other artists (like coldplay, pendulum). Also it has many songs. One problem could be that it is quite repetitive and you get bored after listening to it for more time.

    Each and every track is subservient to a formula which demands a whistling filter sweep, a rattling, super-hyped snare roll and the inevitable canyon-deep drop before it all goes nuts. [Dec 2012, p.113]

    [Until Now] delivers a perfectly serviceable hi-hat frenzy. [26 Oct 2012, p.75]

    There's little here that suggests Swedish House Mafia is more than the sum of its parts, and as Axwell, Angello, and Ingrosso split into three equally powered powerhouses, it seems this supergroup was more a fun lark than a focused project. Still, it's as fun as larks come.
