    While this mixed bag of sounds ensures Wonderland is a far more intriguing affair than most superstar DJ's crossover efforts, it also means Aoki may struggle to reel in the same mainstream audience that its guest list suggests he desires.

    Wonderland may have worked better as a series of EPs, but as is the album fails to be more than the sum of its parts, possibly even hindered by poor arrangement of tracks and the odd inclusion of "The Kids Will Have Their Say."

    While Wonderland may have its moments, it can never sustain them, and although it stands as a surprisingly listenable album in contrast to the usual dance-party-only affairs to come out of this genre, it's never more than merely good.

    It's obvious Aoki is a better tastemaker and label boss than producer, but then, didn't we all dream so big in 2005?

    Aoki relies heavily on guests to pad out Wonderland, with mixed results.

    I think Steve Aoki deserves more credit than he gets. This is a good album, and it will certainly make you dance. It is definitely not cerebral, in any sense, but it is not meant to be. Take it for what it is, a nice fusion of electro, house and even some dub. Full Review »
