CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

On Sept. 5, dvsn establish themselves as the cutting edge of post-millennial soul music, electrifying, absorbing and, at their best, downright mind-blowing.

Pitchfork
This group is wise and capable enough to eschew nearly every shortcut of today's personality-first music culture and dial into the silence between the noise. It's what confidence sounds like.

NOW Magazine

Unlike many of their peers, dvsn go for the jugular, convincingly channelling the warmth, grace and precision of 90s staples Jodeci and Brownstone on their Sept. 5th album by mixing classic gospel-R&B vocal arrangements with modern touches.

Pretty Much Amazing

Despite some glaring issues, Sept. 5th manages to stay listenable, and offers occasional glimpses of genuine inspiration.

AllMusic
Here's some more narcotic, dimly lit R&B balladry from Drake's Warner-supported OVO Sound label, this time courtesy of duo dvsn.

PopMatters

As a whole, it eschews the current R&B trend of existing within multiple genres or creating a genre unto itself, and the collection is unengaging because of it.

I knew they will be huge when I first heard "The Line" which is also one of my favorite tracks of 2015. After many anticipated yet disappointing albums so far, and many newly discovered R&B acts trying too hard, this is such a bliss to my ears.

Cuando escuchas canciones como The Line y Hallucinations, sabes que estos chicos se traen algo grande entre manos. Division (dvsn) sin dudas es una de las grandes sorpresas de este 2016, una de esas bandas que quisieras recomendarlas a todos pero a la vez quisieras que se quedará en secreto para siempre. Para los amantes del R&B este es un disco esencial. Desde ya unos de mis debut favoritos de los últimos años.

To me, this project feels like it came from an alternate universe where the Weeknd decided to become more introspective and experimental instead of going commercial after the Trilogy. The production incorporates many of the hallmarks of modern r&b, but feels warmer and more organic, topped off with a somewhat warped sheen that gives the record a strongly psychedelic feel. The lyrics and multiple vocalists (mostly a solo male and an assembly of anonymous male and female voices, usually in ... read more

This is the best R&B album of all time. This is like soul incense or spirit perfume. Absolutely love it. Dreamy lovely smooth wave songs.
