    It’s OPN’s most emotional work to date and also his most ridiculous. Its tragedy is bound up with its humor; its sublimity comes from the places where it feels the most broken.

    It is a wholly singular and groundbreaking release that, while adhering to many past and present genre trends, seems prepared to go further in collating and collaging influences than most other electronic releases dare to go.

    It is more songful than anything Lopatin has done.

    It is a complex beast of shade and mood, and it's Lopatin's best work yet.

    GOD's interest in questionable styles and its elaborate backstory seem designed to keep things interesting after the giant step forward that was R Plus Seven.

    For all its challenges and provocations, Garden Of Delete may actually be more inclusive and open than it first appears. It might be that its moments of hope and beauty (Lift) linger longer in the mind than its very varied assaults.

    This is Lopatin's most cogent record yet. [Dec 2015, p.91]

    Daniel Lopatin returns with yet again, another ambitious and abstract album. This time, Daniel shifts his style of vaporwave and ambient musicDaniel Lopatin returns with yet again, another ambitious and abstract album. This time, Daniel shifts his style of vaporwave and ambient music to take on a much noisier and more abrasive style. However, the album did not fail to disappoint me and is a great experience from start to finish. It is definitely going to be one of my favourite album of this year. Do give it a listen. Expand

    Awesome work by OPN. This album is so abstract and so genius. I like the fact that he mixes so many different sounds in an ambient basis. ItsAwesome work by OPN.

    This being the first Album I've actually listened to by Danny Boy, it truly is quite the experience, and really is something quite beautifulThis being the first Album I've actually listened to by Danny Boy, it truly is quite the experience, and really is something quite beautiful in a kinda morbid and interesting kinda, slightly ironic, way.

    Yeah I'm digging it, but it does have that issue of being something that isn't really like the most re-listenable material out their, I mean i cant find myself sitting down and listening to this when studying...maybe if im reading a book about philosophy it might inspire me...or dreams....Definitely check this guy out...hes interesting...
