Pitchfork

With Adventure, Madeon’s debut LP, the producer presents a strikingly versatile collection. In a landscape filled with hot-on-paper-but-kinda-"eh" collaborations between big name vocalists and hip producers, Madeon deploys his guests with a stirring effectiveness.

AllMusic

Full of bounding electronic pop, Adventure featured numerous guest spots.

Spin

Adventure exposes the unavoidable give-and-take between pleasure and pain, the loss and (yes) adventure of youth. When the two come crashing together, sometimes the result makes it worth the struggle. Your feet may agree.

PopMatters

Adventure shows a lot of promise and will please a lot of fans, but as of now, that promise has yet to be truly fulfilled.

As 'Adventure' progresses the constant energy begins to become wearing, as if he's on a Red Bull drip while we're just drinking plain old water. In fact, by the end, listening to 'Adventure' is like being held hostage by a madman who, despite everyone wanting to go home, just refuses to let the party die.

It's undeniable that this album and Worlds draw upon many parallels.

Despite this album growing off me a bit since ... read more

UNPOPULAR OPINION: This and Worlds Do not beg to be compared like thousands of others say. I feel that opinion is only so popular because Porter And Madeon are best friends and their fanbases are one. If anything, good faith is more similar to Worlds than this is.

Anyway, This album is pretty great. It's pretty repetitive in some areas and some songs are boring. But Pixel Empire, Home, innocence... all of these are really good. madeon was a little too young to throw all of his ideas into an ... read more

French house producer Madeon comes through with his debut, Adventure. As a huge fan of the house scene, especially French house, I'm slightly disappointed with this record. It's not a bad album, by no means, however I feel all this album presents is some funky fresh house tracks with mediocre vocals plastered on top. Some tracks felt unnecessary and leaving them out would hardly make a difference. There were a few stand out tracks that made my ass shake quite a bit though. Overall, a decently ... read more
