CRITIC REVIEWS

100
musicOMH

This is an intelligent and deeply human album and it would be no exaggeration to say that it’s already a modern classic. 

90
The 405

Hopkins has delivered what is undoubtedly his best album to date. Its more beat-driven approach may scare off the purists, but even in its maximalist moments, there is the fragile beauty and tenderness he has become known for. 

90
Resident Advisor

Immunity is a journey to be savoured, revisited regularly in the knowledge that some new landmark will emerge each and every time.

87
Beats Per Minute

Immunity is brilliant. It’s both a culmination of Hopkins’ earlier achievements and a progression beyond them. 

85
The Line of Best Fit

At times, it will have you lurching for the nearest patch of danceable floor; at others, your head will be thrust back, eyes closed in bliss

85
Pitchfork

It all adds up to a remarkably visceral, sensual, confident electronic record that stays absorbing from beginning to end, and should finally catapult Hopkins to stardom in his own story.

84
Sputnikmusic

Even though the blueprint here is simple enough, the end product is far more huge than the sum of its parts-- the main reason Immunity is such an easy album to get lost in.

80
DIY

With this record Hopkins has finally succeeded in putting on record a definitive statement of his musical vision and ideas. 

80
Consequence of Sound

Like the majority of media consumers who prefer to stay engaged with their tech, Immunity attests that technology can be a tool for a new era of collective human existence.

80
Drowned in Sound

Immunity is an album which puts a well-placed confidence in rewarding the patience of the listener, melding together current club trends with a vulnerable humanity to create an hour-long arc of total immersion.

80
PopMatters

Hopkins is working on large-scale art but also in miniature, focusing our ears in on small details while stretching everything out to an impressive degree.

80
NME

‘Immunity’ is expertly paced, and as good for coming down as it is for coming up.

80
Under The Radar

By concentrating on his own endeavors, Jon Hopkins has created one of the year's most intriguing electronic recordings.

"Immunity" is a beautiful, complex, emotional and oddly human electronic record. The attention to detail is simply astonishing and the amount of variety presented on each track is incredible. Overall, this is one of the best IDM records of the decade!

Fav Tracks: Open Eye Signal, Immunuty, We Disappear, Sun Harmonics, Breathe This Air, Collider

Least Fav Track: Form By Firelight

Immunity really started and ended somewhere completely different in a really good way. Some of the complexity of the earlier tracks transitioned into beautiful ambient pieces that really shine throughout the whole experience. Although this album has pretty much no words it left me in a really positive place with how the IDM and glitchy sounds were presented and evolved into something really beautiful.

This album also went by me very quick for some reason, every new element introduced in here ... read more
