The Line of Best Fit

Tellier’s Confection is an experimental anthology. It’s not entirely what you might expect, and there’s no doubt it won’t be to everyone’s taste.


The soulfulness and melancholy of these songs make them special among Tellier's body of work, giving more depth to Confection than might be expected.


Confection’s overall theme is indulgence, and there’s nothing more indulgent than an artist using a whole album to explore a personal obsession that only a fraction of his fans will be capable of enjoying.


While much of this album is beautiful to listen to, there’s also the sense that Tellier’s treading water slightly, trying to recreate those former glories that shone so brightly.

The 405

There is no doubt that Confection is a very technically accomplished record, but the question remains as to its purpose - it is in effect a soundtrack to nothing.

Under The Radar

An interesting listen, sure, but one that lacks the necessary direction.
