CRITIC REVIEWS

97
Beats Per Minute

UTQC is a testament to imagination and vision and the capabilities of the human soul by way of music.

95
The 405

Ellison struck out into uncharted territories, taking the basic elements that have shaped his landmark works and applying them to this new, dreamy and subdued affair.

91
Pretty Much Amazing

This is not a collection of songs so much as it is a patchwork of different moods, sewn together to form a distorted stream of consciousness.

91
A.V. Club

After 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.

90
Drowned in Sound

He is, however, a radiant example of an artist with the ability at his fingertips to close the schism between the true avant-garde and the leftfield mainstream, and in this respect Until the Quiet Comes is the record to date we’ll most likely crown his masterpiece.

90
musicOMH

With this record, Flying Lotus has continued his explorations of the outer regions of sonic experience whilst simultaneously creating a playful, and thrillingly visceral, listening experience

90
NME

Ultimately, this album is the sound of the future.

85
Pitchfork

While this might be Flying Lotus' most accessible record, it's less about being pleasant and more about deep focus. 

80
Consequence of Sound

FlyLo silenced the external forces and produced an album that is dark enough to spin at LA’s Low End Theory, yet smooth enough to garner listens from fans well outside of the club’s beat freaks. 

80
PopMatters

The 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.

75
Under The Radar

Every track and sound feels new and experimental; much of Until the Quiet is so wonderfully weird, there's no way for it to be boring.

70
FACT Magazine

For an album that, at times, is beautiful, it doesn’t hypnotise you, it doesn’t entrance you, and even its best moments fail to stay in your head

50
Tiny Mix Tapes

It is coming straight from Warp to a cocktail bar near you and, soon after that, a Starbucks. It is the sound of an artist in retreat from the shadow of his own success.

It appears that experimentation and 'wow-factor' has been compromised for sugary moments and melodic compositions, not necessarily what I look for from Flying Lotus.

Flylo returns with his most atmospheric album. It's spacey and pretty diverse in terms of sound compared to his other records. Despite being his most accessible album, it still doesn't hit me as hard as Cosmogramma or LA does.

Favourite tracks: Electric Candyman, The Nightcaller, me Yesterday//Corded, Hunger, Pretty Boy Strut, All In, Getting There, Tiny Tortures, DMT Song, Phantasm, Heave(n)
