Oct 11, 2012On this trippier, more scattered collection, it emerges in the looming calm, the open moments that peek through pneumatic melodies, beatific, druggy vocals and that throbbing, omnipresent kick.
Oct 2, 2012After multiple listens, the album reveals itself to be as nuanced, as subtle, and a lot more digestible than its predecessor, a sidestep into sonic territory that's no less admirable for its comparative somnolence.
Oct 1, 2012Until The Quiet Comes is an album that is celebratory and desolate, dense and sparse, dark and colourful--a trippy, fantastical ride that only he could create a path for.
Oct 3, 2012The more you listen to Until the Quiet Comes, the more you get the sense that you're only scratching the surface of how much is really going on with it. It's a tribute to what FlyLo has accomplished here that no matter how and how much you enjoy it now, Until the Quiet Comes only promises to keep on revealing more and more of itself.
Oct 10, 2012Pleasant is the word. But not simple. Quiet has just as many corners worth peeking down.
Oct 3, 2012Ellison excels everywhere else, keeping the beats brisk and the instrumentation organic and lively.
Oct 1, 2012Until the Quiet Comes isn't bad, exactly. It's just definitely not good either.

Oct 6, 2012Flying Lotus' previous albums have been revelations in a crowd of music fans tired by the current trend of popular music's accessible,Flying Lotus' previous albums have been revelations in a crowd of music fans tired by the current trend of popular music's accessible, happy-go-lucky love affair with electronica and hip-hop. LA and Cosmogramma especially transformed what was possible in two genres that were becoming overridden with apparent mediocrity.
It's easy to understand why some fans would wish to assume that this new album is much less qualified for his discography. It's accessible, trippy and gentle, visually complex, and musically much more simple than previous efforts.
And yet I believe they miss the point. This is a sonorous masterpiece of transportation, eschewing the ego of transforming genres, and instead beginning what may be a future rise to the perfection of Ellison's craft, and the solidification of his love affair with the psychadelic.
Where 1983 carried a sense of assertion, like an artist trying to make a name for himself, Until The Quiet Comes feels old, wise, and assured of its place in the world. It would be equally content to reign as a timeless classic, or sit collecting dust in only a few eccentric collections.
Musically, the genres accessed run between techno, dubstep, hip-hop, jazz, and something else, totally alien, that seems to be the core concept that collects all these things into a combination of such color.
Personally, I hope to see this album treasured in the future. I believe it is timeless, and tells a universal story.… Expand

Until the Quiet Comes is right up there with Cosmogramma (though maybe a touch behind), and it serves as a nice contrast. The records have some sonic similarities, but UTQC relies less on percussion and more on warmer, organic sounds. Its mood is calmer and more restrained, which makes for a relaxing trip through a beautiful atmosphere that completely envelops you.… Expand

Both this and cosmogramma I feel have to be listened to in its whole capacity in order to get the whole experience and feeling of the albums. It's one of those as well that sends me to a different place, and there's very far and few in between that do that. Overall, I loved the addition of Nikki Randa on this album, especially on Getting There with her very echoey and distant harmonising vocals.… Expand

This album had me on the fence for a while, with it's smokey jazz club vibes that didn't seem to be going anyplace, but the last few tracks, specifically the spectacular me Yesterday//Corded track, tie the album together. It's not as good as Cosmogramma, and definitely doesn't compete with Los Angeles, but it's a nice addition to Fly Lo's discography.… Expand

He's got someI've never listened to Flying Lotus until now and so I was surprised that this album mainly consisted of instrumental music. He's got some features who are singing in the background but primarily it's his experimental electronic stuff. Staccato tones, reverberant background vocals and some crackling in the background, 'Until The Quiet Comes' is clearly no ordinary release. I don't want to sound rude, but every critic who gave this album the best possible rating is a dumbass. You can't give plus points for the lyrics so you can't give it 100 points, isn't that logical? Flying Lotus is a very talented music producer, yet I like it more when he features a nice rapper to rap (or a nice singer to sing) on his beat. Anways, this CD is worth to listen once, but it's heavily overrated - I can't see anything actually special here.… Expand
