The more charming pockets found within The Narcissist II’s peculiar symmetry are worth waiting for, so long as you’re willing to suspend your disbelief long enough to ingest the entire record.

FACT Magazine

The Narcissist II is so compelling because it is conceptually so much more rigorous and consistent, so much richer with internal resonances than its duo-created cousins.

The 405

The emotive, frank lyrical style accesses vulnerable areas of your psyche, making you give more sweat and spittle to try and grasp the lesson he's learned.

Pitchfork

The Narcissist II is compelling but ultimately shallow, and shallow is a fault, even if that's what Blunt was aiming for.

Dean Blunt's first notable project consists of these melodramatic sound collage tracks that contain traces of pop, soul, and even hip hop. Everything on here sounds pretty amateurish in a way that's similar to the lo-fi era of James Ferraro, but that really just adds to the emotional impact that these songs give. Truly one of the more affecting experiments of the year.

Favourite tracks: Caught Feelings, Galice, The Narcissist
