The 405

Getting Closer is not an album which can easily be pinned down; it seems to want to accomplish as many things as possible, and Saul shows that he has the skill to pull it off. 


Getting Closer is fashionable and curious, but there's an extreme lucidity to it that is off-putting, forgetting for a moment a handful of dud tracks.


Getting Closer comes off as an undecided jumble of background and foreground music. Nice, but not necessary, this one falls somewhere between a promising debut and glossy, pretty wallpaper.

Resident Advisor

As nice and welcoming as Getting Closer is, it'll never challenge you. Taking sounds you're already familiar with, it's a velveteen affair so utterly soft and pillowy that it can pass by without making much of a mark.

FACT Magazine

For all this record’s gesturing towards pop directness, it is sorely lacking in impact and in memorability.
