    Hotel Surrender is a testament to Murphy's skills as an artist and his attitude as a person.

    ‘Hotel Surrender’ must surely be one of the most cathartic records of the year. From the laid-back cool of opener ‘Oh Me Oh My’, it seems the Faker brand of chill beats is back. The self-production adds to the organic nature of the record, and is often quite bold, with strings and saxophones aplenty.

    It might be damning with faint praise, but Hotel Surrender would suggest that Murphy is at his best in shallow artistic waters, and ventures further out at his peril.

    The marginally more upbeat and engaging Feel Good aside, it’s all very tasteful but ultimately a little unexciting. As returns go, it’s an underwhelming one.

    Not a bad attempt by Chet Faker. The album brings in his very recognizable soulful vocals echoing over his classic down-tempo beats, creatingNot a bad attempt by Chet Faker.
