CRITIC REVIEWS

90
PopMatters

Jlin's soundtrack to Wayne McGregor's Autobiography demonstrates the electronic producer's rightful position in the contemporary dance space. Her experimental approach to club and ambient music complements the progressive choreographic mind of McGregor.

Exclaim!

With Autobiography, Jlin shows she might be incapable of creating anything less than brilliant.

80
The Skinny

Autobiography offers a fascinating glimpse into the complex mind of one of dance music’s most enigmatic figures.

80
The Line of Best Fit

Jlin is quickly becoming a staple within an esteemed circle of experimental, inter-disciplinary creators, with this score representing a vital step forward.

80
AllMusic

Autobiography is unquestionably a vast step forward for Jlin, further confirming her status as a visionary artist. If it wasn't obvious already, following her long, illustrious career will be tremendously exciting.

79
Pitchfork

It is an accomplished album full of puckish invention, singular production twists, and ambient murk that offers scintillating hints at where Jlin might go on her third album proper.

70
Loud and Quiet

Throughout it all, the music remains rich while living at a cold distance. Different as it is, those who’ve fallen for Jlin’s challenging outsider approach will find a lot to love on ‘Autobiography’.

70
musicOMH

With that freedom Jlin manages that rare thing; a soundtrack that doesn’t act as merely background music.

70
Rolling Stone

Her latest is a thrilling leap into brave new soundworlds.

70
Spectrum Culture

For all the new sounds that Jlin introduces and enhances, the most memorable sections in Autobiography have her working with almost nothing at all.

Really wish I like Jlin more than I do. She's a Hoosier for Christ sake! But this just kind of floats by me. Rarely grabbing or holding my attention.

Autobiography is a well-sequenced, experimental soundtrack of ambient and electronic music with footwork at its core.

More subtle than her latest LP, but a sonic experience nonetheless.
