CRITIC REVIEWS

90
musicOMH

He’s constantly pushing the envelope, but his music has a comforting, familiar – and indeed an enveloping – feel.

90
AllMusic

It's exciting and unique music, not falling neatly in with any of his dubstep/singer/songwriter peers or the large number of indie-leaning electronic producers.

85
The Line of Best Fit

It’s ambitious, even expansive,  in scope, despite the introspection his lyrics communicate, and even if it wasn’t the intention, he provides an incredible snapshot of urban life through the lens of love and brittle electro-soul.

80
PopMatters

It takes in all manner of influences both cogent and disparate and doesn’t so much as mash them together. Rather, it encourages and coaxes them to get along and work in harmony with each other.

70
NME

Although not as immediate as his collaborators’ work, his introversion pulls you into his unique soundscape. 

60
FACT Magazine

Considering its lengthy gestation period, this debut on the whole feels slight rather than ambitious, neither focused enough to nail its poppy potential nor madcap enough to feel like a properly strange, experimental pop album.

A trimmed album with good vocals and nice electronic sounds! It doesn't have the "it" to make me put a higher score even though i wanted to!
