CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Exclaim!

Abandoning any semblance of chillwave completely, Les Sins portrays a freer, all-embracing and, quite frankly, supremely more fun Bundick.

85
The Line of Best Fit

If Michael is Chaz Bundick's guided tour of dance music, then he takes you to some unexpected but seriously interesting places.  

83
Pretty Much Amazing

The good news here is that in place of his lyrics, Bundick focuses his attention on widening the gamut that Michael runs. If this isn’t the most versatile dance album of the year, we missed something.

80
The 405

While Bundick allows his alter ego to take some risks, he ultimately focuses on catchy beats and clean production that is sure to keep dancefloors warm throughout the winter.

80
DIY

The record meanders from one dance subgenre to the next, and one of the most exciting things about it is just how elegantly it does this.

70
AllMusic

It may not displace Toro y Moi as Bundick's most satisfying project, but as an outlet for his dance music urges, Les Sins works very well.

musicOMH

For its maker, it’s a chance to cut loose under the banner of diminished expectations; for the listener, it’s a temporary distraction at best.

60
PopMatters

The problem for Bundick is not that he tried to make something different with Les Sins, but instead that he couldn’t focus the effort.
