By now, Illenium has carved a place out for himself in the modern electro-pop scene alongside acts like The Chainsmokers and Said The Sky, but unfortunately his rise to mainstream relevance has resulted in a more watered-down, flimsy approach to composition and production. About 70% of this album feels gratuitous, consisting either of uninspired re-treads or needless filler. There is some enjoyment to be had here, as tracks like Good Things Fall Apart, Sad Songs and In Your Arms capitalize on ... read more

With each new album, it has felt as though Bon Iver has taken noticeable steps towards an ultimate destination. The lostlorn warmth of "For Emma, Forever Ago", the sweeping orchestrations of "Bon Iver, Bon Iver", and the electronic whirring of "22, A Million" have all felt like small steps towards a greater vision. With "i,i", it feels like Justin has realized that vision. This record is an amalgamation of the best defining characteristics of his three ... read more

A Place Where Mountains Hide is a beautiful album, front to back. Hard-hitting production and gorgeous electronic swells characterize this record, and it's atmosphere is one of the most gripping I've heard in a long time. For an album that not too many people are going to hear, acloudyskye's debut project will go down as one of my favorite electronic records in recent memory.

On the surface, I kind of like the idea of this project. Ed Sheeran has strayed so far from his folksy roots that he's barely recognizable anymore, so why not go all the way and release an entire album full of weird, unexpected collaborations? If you had told me 8 years ago that Ed Sheeran would be making music with Skrillex, Justin Bieber, and Eminem I would have called you crazy. Well, here we have it, and it's actually a whole lot more underwhelming than I was hoping. Beautiful People and ... read more

RUBBER is the electronic record far too few people are going to hear this year, as it's an exciting and incredibly engaging blend of myriad different electronic sub-genres. From the eerie and distorted "eyes in the water" to the imposing synth swells of "genesis" to the relentless trap-infused guitar riffs on "trauma" there are several standout tracks to be heard here, all with their own unique textures and tones that differentiate them from similar pieces. RUBBER ... read more
