    His slight adjustments and increased restraint make this his most accessible and creative release yet.

    Until the Quiet Comes further catapults Ellison into the cosmos and away from all things terrestrial. He's the king of his domain, and there is no runner-up.
  3. No one's asking bigger questions of himself or more from himself in music than Flying Lotus is. These records are the only appropriate answers and Until The Quiet Comes is his most accomplished yet.

    It's a masterpiece.

    Until The Quiet Comes is an album that is celebratory and desolate, dense and sparse, dark and colourful--a trippy, fantastical ride that only he could create a path for.

    He is, however, a radiant example of an artist with the ability at his fingertips to close the schism between the true avant-garde and the leftfield mainstream, and in this respect Until the Quiet Comes is the record to date we'll most likely crown his masterpiece.

    This is one of the most rewarding and beautiful albums of the year.

    Steven Ellison (aka Flying Lotus) manages to ensnare 18 night visions on his latest psych-bass masterwork, Until the Quiet Comes.

    Until The Quiet Comes is at once iridescent and ambiguous, luminous and impenetrable: an elegantly conceived and executed album which may well come to be seen as Flying Lotus' finest work to date.
  10. Ultimately, this album is the sound of the future.

    On this trippier, more scattered collection, it emerges in the looming calm, the open moments that peek through pneumatic melodies, beatific, druggy vocals and that throbbing, omnipresent kick.

    Fly Lo manages to create an unusually sophiticated and well-produced album with mostly a laptop.

    The surface is a gorgeous invitation to return and see if you can figure out what it all means.

    After multiple listens, the album reveals itself to be as nuanced, as subtle, and a lot more digestible than its predecessor, a sidestep into sonic territory that's no less admirable for its comparative somnolence.

It's certainly not as grand as Cosmogramma and Los Angeles, but its certainly alot more intricate and well thought out. Some songs feel a tad too short, but I guess it keeps the album flowing, as it never becomes stagnant. The second half of the album is phenomenal, thanks to the guest vocals. Full Review »

Effortlessly stylish and multi-faceted, it's just the latest in a series of great releases from LA's own. Full Review »
