Apr 5, 2011While there may not be a song to soundtrack an Amazon advertisement in this bunch, it'll work nicely to soundtrack bleary summer nights–probably for years to come.
Apr 5, 2011There's not a dud minute to endure in the dreamlike 52 of "Mind Bokeh,'' which sounds far less like a sixth album than a second wind.
Mar 29, 2011As its name suggests, Mind Bokeh is fluid and formless, committing to pop structure and melodies one moment only to eschew them the next, often all within the same track.
UncutApr 12, 2011These are glistening sonic fancies picked out in neon and Day-Glo. [May 2011, p.79]
May 12, 2011Mind Bokeh has all the cuts and scratches you'd expect from an album by a producer, but it's jerky without being propulsive, mixing a swathe of styles with harsh funk, sudden stops and melancholy undertones.
Mar 30, 2011Although Mind Bokeh can be expected to be a wilfully eclectic pick'n'mix affair, what he's actually going to pull out the bag can still surprise.

Initially, it seemed like Bibio was experimenting with just a few too many ideas and not really focused on creating songs. I read one review that hit it perfectly by saying that it's difficult to tell where one song ends and the other begins. That's all fine, and I'm all for experimentation, but I also yearn for song structure and melody, which some of his noises tend to eschew. Overall, there definitely are moments that I love on the album and it's grown considerably on me since that first listen.… Expand
