    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.

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 »

I didn't understand what the fuss is all about. Then it received many accolades from numerous music critics, so i decided to give it a second chance.

    I started discovering a track here and a track there that were really amazing. "Latch" and "Defeated No More" made me really wanna get up and dance.

    Then i took notice of "Help Me Lose My Mind", and i fell in love with it. And finally i re listened to the entire album, and was totally captivated by it, particularly by "F For You", "Second Chance", "You & Me", and "Boiling".

    I love how the album was like a journey to me. I'm really excited for Disclosure and can't wait for their new work.

    Honestly, however, this is an album to be appreciated in its entirety, rather than in specially-picked songs..
