CRITIC REVIEWS

Clash
Game for a laugh, Tiga backs himself to create electro-house class and pop poignancy without it feeling like a gratuitous wardrobe change.

The Guardian
Tiga is going strong, and has here completed a trilogy of albums that articulate his idea of refined hedonism.

musicOMH
Tiga’s fantasies and thoughts are always laced with good humour and self-deprecating wit, and are delivered here over a set of grooves that work a treat for mind and body.

The Line of Best Fit
This third album ... is his first that has played like a complete body of work. Consistent and expertly produced, it's also his finest to date.

Pitchfork
A veteran of a half-dozen different styles, Tiga has never shied away from trying new sounds. But here, it’s as if he’s can’t find anything that fits comfortably, and from track to track you can feel him rejecting any kind of consistency.

Exclaim!

No Fantasy Required is partly a success because Tiga knows exactly what works, but it's a mess at times because he hasn't quite figured out what doesn't, either.

The producer from Montreal returned with a bag full of techno-pop, dance-oriented songs, that, despite his voluntary controversial suggestion, require fantasy.
