    A deeply thoughtful and yet infinitely danceable collection of songs, it balances honest truths with taunting vocals and bursts of synth-prompted energy.

    DECIDE is a record about cycles and breaking them, about regrets and new beginnings, and finding the beauty in change. It doesn’t suggest decisiveness; it commands it.

    This fascinating collection of spirited hooks, and deeply heartfelt lyricism, cleverly blends high-tech energetic synths, quick wit, and trippy guitars into something you weren’t quite expecting. Arguably, the result is a much bolder record than his last solo debut ‘Twenty Twenty’.

    Djo yet again proves an adaptable vehicle for such madcap energy and chameleonic shifts in style, an earnest and well-finished delve into another sphere of Keery’s artistic voice.

    Keery could have gone back to the alt-rock psychedelia that already earned him plaudits; instead, he took a risk and made DECIDE — a funky, sometimes goofy sci-fi odyssey with tons of twists both sonic and emotional.

    Decide is a fun, off-kilter synth-pop album that proves Keery’s talent, but by its conclusion, a clearer picture of its maker fails to emerge.

    DJOs' sophomore album is a staple for how a brilliant follow up album should be made. The album draws inspiration from classic 70s'/80s'DJOs' sophomore album is a staple for how a brilliant follow up album should be made. The album draws inspiration from classic 70s'/80s' musicians such as Bowie, The Talking Heads, and many more, whilst inputting a healthy dose of his own personal flare and traces of "Twenty Twenty". With some tracks being a grand and full experience chocked full of rich tones and expansive synths, and others being a more down to earth listening experience with tracks such as "Figure You Out" and "Climax" coming to mind. This album is everything a fan of DJO could've asked for and more. Expand
