R.I.P. is the most fully realised, ambitious and rewarding project that Cunningham has yet put to record

R.I.P is a fantastical, fascinating album: as Actress intended, it feels not really of this world.

R.I.P. seeks to deny electronic music many of its powerful and most recognisable conventions.

The innovation on R.I.P. is to put as much effort into making things clean as making them dirty, and the result is a sense of contrast

R.I.P. is a dizzying, wholly original bildungsroman from one of the UK's most exciting and thoughtful contemporary producers.

Despite titles rooted in mythology and religion these tracks do not evoke anything in particular

With R.I.P., Cunningham took what might be the biggest risk of his career and came away with the biggest reward.

Its upper register is colored an oddly disinfected monochrome, rendering the tracks bone-cold and often emotionless.
