    What Hansen and company have accomplished with Epoch (and their previous albums) can only be described as tapping into the sublime.

    His shortest, sweetest, and most concise album to date, it feels lived-in and considered, inspiring his fans while making everyone else wonder where this newfound confidence is going to propel Tycho next.

    Hansen continues to push his group's sound while remaining familiar, and Epoch is one of Tycho's best yet.

    Irrespective of how you choose to approach it, the final installment of the trilogy that Hansen began back in 2011 fully underlines his strength, deftness and creative dexterity as a producer.

    Epoch is perhaps a little overly fluffy at times, but plenty of sunshine pokes through the clouds.

    It’s all perfectly pleasant and thoroughly boring, and would make ideal backing music for a hot-air ballooning company’s next promotional video.
