    Now, it appears to have been reduced to simply a checklist of familiar sounds and effects, harnessed to the dullest beats imaginable, and dependent on outside collaborators for interest.

    Soft synths and smooth-voiced collaborations fill this album with brilliant dance tracks. Its beats flow well and, while there are some not-impressive-at-all tracks and a chance of boring you by its repetitive dullness, the album gets more solid with every listen. Some of the highlights here, "Latch" and "Help Me Lose My Mind", may be the right way to start this album. If you find yourself willing for more after hearing these two tracks, then you should go ahead and get this album. It's worth the money. Full Review »

    Absolute garbage. There is nothing original here. Stay far far away. Overhyped junk, masquerading as, I don't even know. This sounds like something a high school kid put together on a mac in 1997, mixed with some sappy R&B vocals. If you dance to this you are a terrible dancer. Full Review »

    A dance album that you can actually enjoy in its entirety. No reason to cherry pick tracks here. Disclosure have created a thoughtful and surprisingly sure-handed debut that will be on a few Top 10s at the end of the year. From track to track there is nothing here that hasn't been done before, but they is rarely a miss. I look forward to the band's future projects and would love to see them progress from here. It wouldn't hurt to see other groups or electronic producers take note and consider making albums with this much kinetic synergy. Full Review »
