    The album's mix of tropical vibes and experimental hooks give LSD a pleasant, lush, varied landscape of tones and tempos.

    Considering the combination of such talents, it's a wonder that LSD is so good and so fun. While it might be too relentless for some, it's an experience to embrace and enjoy.

    What’s remarkable is how smoothly they work together, and how much genuine pleasure the three seem to take in this collaboration.

    If it’s a collection of tried-and-tested bangers you’re after, showcasing three pop powerhouses at their proven best, then crack on. In search of a left-field album of crate-digging curveballs? You’re best looking elsewhere.

    While the songs aren’t top-shelf Sia, for a session that comes across more like an arcade game than a coherent album, that’s fine.

    LSD underwhelms, even if you accept that three of the world’s most interesting musicians would always struggle to create something greater than the sum of its parts.

    LSD sound like an algorithmic midden of pop music. ... More than anything, this album is both tired and wired, like drinking Red Bull after a fifth Red Bull.

Here Diplo, Labrinth & Sia demonstrate they are still essential pieces of music industry. The production simplicity is the key (we might be used to the very "over-produced" tracks, with new strange sounds) because LSD had as aim to stand out the lyrics and the voices, important part of all the content. Also the topic of delusion in love, the time, the loneliness and the overcome of the relationship issues were loyal to the reality. Every song has represented every phase of the process. 79/100 Full Review »

The album cannot be considered as any artist's single project of LSD. It's experimental, in a good way. Vocals are great, most of the production are interesting. The only problem for me is that they release so many singles before the album release, which makes my expectations really high but disappoints me finally.
    Personal Rating:
    Welcome to the wonderful world of: 9/10(A listenable track, the structure is special and unexpected, but the "Diplo" at the end is annoying)
    Angel in your eyes: 9.5/10(the production is really interesting. It may be too much for others, but it's a bop for me)
    Genius: 10/10(best song)
    Audio: 10/10(the chorus is good)
    Thunderclouds: 9.5/10(Sia's vocal is very intriguing in this track)
    Mountains: 7.5/10(a bit flat and underwhelming)
    No New Friends: 8.5/10(a listenable song, but nothing stands out)
    Heaven Can Wait: 9/10(an ok track)
    It's Time:8.5/10(Labrinth's voice is really great in this track)
