After a short hiatus and murmurings of an album through many forums, there is finally a Skrillex album to hand and I can firmly say that it doesn't disappoint. What's wonderful about this album is really the variety of genres and Skrillex managing to keep up with the electronic scene without cheapening his music to do so, with tracks different from straight brostep explosions of noise such as Ragga Bomb to those that are experimental such as Doompy Poomp. The track that stands out to me however is Ease My Mind which opens with a beatifully simplistic melody reminding me of Skream's remix of In For the Kill and Bjork's signature sounds, it then drops straight into wonderfully feel good territory that Skrillex is known to offer his fans. This album really does have something for everyone and while some have stated disappointment over the change in direction that Skrillex has gone his last few releases
post-Bangarang, many others can embrace this album thoroughly.

I've followed Skrillex though never bought any tracks by him. However, when I heard previews of this album, I was taken aback by how amazing it is. The album has a great energy to it. Also, it really hangs together well as an album and feels like a whole piece of work rather than just a collection of different tracks. It's really cleverly put together and cements Skrillex as one of today's top producers. Really enjoyable.

As I'd heard many mixed reviews of this album, I decided that I would try to critique this as objectively as possible.

As the album opened up with a fairly decent brostep track (though nothing special, by any means) I began to wonder if the less favourable reviews were actually right, but as the album unfolded, I was pleasantly surprised.

The album incorporates a wide range of styles, from Skrillex's particular well-known brand of dubstep to drum'n'bass, with some jazz vibes and quite a lot of influence from trap (and even a friendly nod from some of dubstep's earlier roots. While I won't lie and will admit that a few of the tracks did take quite a number of listens to grow on me, I thoroughly enjoy the whole album now and there are a lot of wonderful composition and sound design ideas explored on this record, with mood swings between songs ranging from raw, angry and agressive straight into chilled-out and laidback.

Whilst the album may not appeal to people who are die-hard fans of Skrillex's fairly consistent style in his previous releases, I do think that it has something for everyone on it, be it vocal trap mayhem in Dirty Vibe, the incredibly listenable percussion edits and unexpected half-time drop in Stranger, sheer anthems like Ease My Mind, the chill vibes in Fire Away, the sonic madness (and sheer interestingness of Doompy Poomp) and everything in between.

I'm sure a lot of people will accuse him of selling out and it won't be to everybody's tastes, but despite this being his most experimental and genre-spanning piece of work, I also believe that it's one of his most cohesive sets of tunes which showcases his abilities in many styles outside of the brostep that he is so well known for and it definitely shows a maturing sound.

Props, great album.

I have all of Skrillex's previous stuff and when I saw this I know I had to download it. It took me a few good listens to it before I truly feel in love with it. It chops and changes through the styles and some of the lyrics are a bit flat but overall as good as his earlier stuff but he is evolving as he tells his story.

Always liked Skrillex, but this album takes it to the next level! I would definitely recommend to anyone that is a fan of dubstep!

Skrillex has a reputation for creating interesting sonic landscapes and despite some of his tracks being inane, they still spark a resonance within the body and soul.

This album has got some great moments, and starts of with familiar territory with the pounding 'All is fair in love and Brostep'. The album moves onto the disco / hardstep infused 'Recess' a fantastic track that will prove epic in a club. A change of tack to the R&b tinged 'Stranger' a track that sucks the saccharine out of the MOR conventions associated with the genre and makes it much better for it. 'Try it out' is classic Skrillex and by now you will be enthralled by the album.

However the next two tracks are terrible, the shockingly poor level of lyrics on Coast is clear and Dirty Vibe are laughable child like tracks and would embarrass anyone with pubic hair and massively detract from the Album.

It does bounce back though with 'Ragga bomb' living up to its name and being a boombastic Rave anthem, and Doompy Poomp a fantastic chill step moment with some nice experimental sounds, these seep over into 'F**kThat' as the beat steps up. Then we come to one of the best tracks on the album, the Epic 'Ease my mind' is a 21st century torch song, with a depth of emotion missing from most contemporary dance tracks. The warm glow carries over into the final track 'Fire away' a mellow soundscape where skrillex grabs your hand and leads you off onto a journey beyond the album.

Overall its a good album, if you can look past the two terrible tracks its a fantastic album and I look forward to seeing where Skrillex goes next.
